I was going to try and post about my Mom, who is going into the hospital tomorrow morning for breast cancer surgery. Even started a post twice, but couldn't muddle my way through it without tearing up: so I'm reverting to my comfort zone and going into seamhead mode.
Reports out of Boston say that the Red Sox have offered Mikey Doubles a 3 year deal, with an option on year 4. If this happens I'll send Tex to Boston to give Theo a kiss. Look, I like the guy and all, but there ain't no way on God's green earth I'm kissing him: besides, Tex'd be up for it.
He's only been in Boston 2 years, yet it's pretty hard to imagine Lowell wearing anything other than a B on his cap. In fact, if Tek retires after next season, it's not too much of a reach to imagine that Captain's C on the jersey of Mike Lowell: THAT is how much this guy has ingratiated himself to the city of Boston.
Theo: Do It.
As for my Mom, I'll post an update sometime tomorrow after we know a little more. For JET and Rob and Josh, who emailed me about this, you'll never know how much that meant. And for Donna: I heard you, if you didn't know it already. If you were one of the SG family who wished Mom well, the same goes out for you.
And if you weren't any of the above, and your Mom is still with us, do me a favor: call her up and tell her you love her.
I promise you won't regret it.
