Seriously Joey...

Once again Joey Porter is running his mouth about the Patriots. Well I don't think the Pats needed any real motivation to beat the Dolphins, but it might be nice to see a couple FU td's by newly re-signed Kyle Eckle. Apparently Porter hasn't gotten the last 50 memos because every time he has run his mouth about the Pats he's been on the short end of the stick. That's O.k. though Joey because Heat Evans is gonna be looking to put a helmet into your knee.

Anyway I'm sure this will be pasted on each of the Pats lockers tomorrow morning if it hasn't already been up all week.
While talking about facing the Patriots this weekend, Porter said, "It'll be good to go out and get our first victory." Asked how difficult it would be to prepare for Matt Cassel, who he's never played against, Porter said, "If it's not Tom Brady, it shouldn't be that hard." -

Suck it Trebeck!

Had to throw this one up.  Who knew Connery was a wife-beater.  Kind of wish I could smack Joe Madden right now.  The coach not the douche singer.

King Kong ain't got Sh*t on Me!

Sox lost a real battle last night. Beckett showed he's already in post season form going 8 strong and only giving up one run. Masterson gave up the walk off hit to Dionar Navarro (I'm really starting to hate this guy. In a hate Posada type of way.) I really can't blame the kid I mean the Sox have used him heavily down the stretch here and he just made a bad pitch on the game winner. He'll still be a weapon against any team other than the Rays who he just struggles against; probably due to the over exposure of the Rays being in our division. Mike Lowell looked done after his last at bat in which he smoked a liner to left. He aggravated it on a bare-handed play late in the game. This guy has some rather large stones to be playing with that pain. I hope he can gut it out but fromt he looks of the way he was limping it off the field last night Cortozone isn't going to be enough.

Perhaps the best news of the day was bringing back King Theo for a few more years of dominance. The front office has to be the most important part of the new age Red Sox they are young and do a great job of scouting and placing value on guys. Can't say Theo hasn't missed on a couple guys, but he hit on a lot more. As a fan you gotta love the way Theo teams have been able to make it to the post-season:

Since taking over the Sox, his teams have made the postseason four times -- 2003, 2004, 2005, 2007 -- and are headed for a fifth trip this season. - Dan Roche WBZTV
He is the G.M. who I would most like to have a beer with that's for sure. He loves Pearl Jam and Pearl Jam loves Theo. Plus the guy looks real good holding a trophy.

Will the Sox pound the Rays again tonight?

That's what she said...

Tid Bits

Here are some notes regarding the Bo Sox. (Giselle Approved!)
In case anyone is wondering just how the Bay/Manny trade is going. I like Bay but look at Manny's God Damn numbers. Tell me the Sox wouldn't be more of a threat with him in the lineup in October.
Jason Bay 160 48 35 8 34 .300 .358 27-13
Manny Ramirez 152 60 29 14 43 .395 .478 24-18

Varitek broke the Red Sox record for most home runs by a catcher, surpassing Carlton Fisk with his 158th. Rob Bradford (WEEI)

Lowell's Hip injury is more of a nagging pain then a pop. Hopefully the Sox can rest him over the next few weeks.

Ortiz moved into second place in major league history for home runs by a DH with 244, trailing only Frank Thomas (269).

Dice K's 17th win is a record for a Japanese born pitcher. So he's got that going for him.

Julio Lugo is still making Dunkin Donut runs for Francona.

Rays fans (if they even exist) are not flocking to the Trop.

NL Notes.
Send Em' Sevum is coaching the potential playoff bound Brew Crew...
Astros are on their tails Lenny Dykstra takes notice.
Back-to-Back Z no-no and Ted Liiiiiiiiiilly one hitters don't help.

Rayzed and Confused

So I expected the Rays to put up a better fight than they did for this AL East title. Instead Kazmir comes out like Jake the Snake Roberts at a county fair event. Man that was easy for the Sox 13 runs, six homers, and a solid pitching performance by Dice K. Ortiz seems to be getting his thump back with 4 RBIs last night. Youk (horrible humanbeing) with 3 RBIs and even the Captain added two RBIs. How about Coco Crisp leading off drawing three walks, talk about a resurgence. Total team effort last night, except for Nancy Drew of course who had a death in the family/ bad back, and Lowell and his torn hip labrum still gritting through it. I'm not counting the Rays out of this yet, but with Beckett on the hill tonight in a big game you know the Sox are gonna be pumped to take sole lead of the East. People say it doesn't matter if the Sox win the division just as long as they make the playoffs. Bullshit you know Pedroia, Beckett, and company want to take it all.
Bring on the Pennant baby doesn't matter if we play Chi Sox or the Halos. Just get there baby.

Great story about Vinny Wilfork's Vegas wedding. Had to pass it on. Hahhahah!

"I almost missed the wedding. I was up $40,000 at roulette at the Hard Rock and didn't want to leave. If it wasn't for NFL Films filming it (the wedding), I wouldn't have left." -Mrs. Bianca Wilfork

Take one for the Team

Pats won!  Who would have thought.  The Matt Cassel  led Pats beat the (overrated) Brett Favre led Jets.  Mangina must have cried himself to sleep; if he could even sleep at all.  Matt Cassel didn't make the mistakes Brett Favre did.  The defense carried the Pats in this one along with the three headed RB monster of Faulk, Morris, and Jordan.  (Where the hell was Larry Maroney 16 yards on eight carries?)    What happened to the Jets strong running game (Thomas Jones 70 yards 0 Td's)?  
I have to say Strong play by Big Dick Seymour and the D really won this game for the Pats. Great play by the secondary except on the play Rodney got screened by his own guy.
What a huge finishing to the day by Adalius Thomas.  That was a sick statement SACK!
Expect huge things from him this year.  He was one bright moment in the final 5 minutes of the Pats Superbowl loss last year.  If you have any memory of that game at all.

Overall great weekend.  The only negative thing I saw related to this game was the hit on Charlie Weiss.  Blllarghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! I think I just puked in my mouth.
