As I deal with a daughter turning into a pre-teen before my eyes, a boy who is on the verge (seriously) of getting tossed from PRE SCHOOL, and a baby who, while cute as can be, is showing signs of being the 21st century version of Evil Kenivel, I continue to keep my eye on the prize.
The World Series.
Sox vs. Rockies.
Game 1 is tomorrow night from the Cathedral known as Fenway Park. I CAN'T WAIT.
Today brought some sad news though: Tim Wakefield's balky shoulder is keeping him off the World Series roster, which means the Game 4 starter is most likely Jon Lester. And while I'm rooting for Lester with everything I have, the thought of him starting a game in Colorado has me more than a little nervous. I'd rather it be Bat***t.
Speaking of which, he's off the roster as well, and Gagne is in. Which means one of two things: either Gagne has pictures of Julian and Theo in a compromising position, or else someone is trying to justify giving him $4.5 million dollars in return for, well, a healthy dose of crappy pitching.
Jacoby gets the start over Coco in CF for game 1: if this development shocks you, what rock have you been living under the past week or so?
My biggest worry today has been wondering what in the world Tito is going to do when the series gets to Denver: no DH in the NL parks, so there is an odd man out with Youk, Mikey, and Papi. Who sits? What is he going to do? Yep: there's a war on terror in two countries, wild fires in CA, a drought on the east coast and Ryan Seacrest still has a job, yet my biggest worry is who plays first base for 3 games in Colorado.
What is WRONG with me? Do I need a shrink? A lobotomy? Or just a good, hard smack upside my head?
So: who do you think IS going to play 1B in the National League games?
(I asked what was wrong with me: I didn't say I was going to change.)
