Comeback!! Oh, wait... Nevermind

With each pitch Scott Kazmir threw last night in what would turn out to be a crap-tastic 5-4 loss to Tampa last night, I couldn't shake two reoccuring thoughts.

1) Wow!
2) The Mets are SOOOOO stupid.

I'll address these one at a time. For the first five or so innings the Red Sox, maybe the major's best offense, had no chance against Kazmir. No chance what so ever. Kazmir hit as high as 97 on the gun, but was routinely around 95 when he needed it. His breaking ball broke into the strikezone when the Sox hitters weren't expecting it to, and it broke out of the zone when they swung. To use the venacular of the kids, Kazmir was "off the hook."

As for point number two, the Mets are truly, incredibly, painfully, and amazingly stupid for getting rid of Kazmir for a mediocre talent like Zambrano. Actually, let me revise that. Forget Zambrano. They're all those things for simply getting rid of Kazmir at all. Who would think that all it would take to pry a premiere young left-handed pitching talent (like Kazmir) away from a team desperately in need of a premiere young left-handed pitching talent (like Kazmir) is a guy who walks every other batter, but thats ok because he throws hard.

In an unrelated matter, what in the hell was Terry Francona doing sending Alan Embre in to pitch the ninth inning of a tie game? Isn't that why the Sox have Keith Foulke?

looks like you been on a blogging fast for awhile. well i juste started a new red sox blog today. visit me, if you have a minute, at redsoxbloggers.blogspot.com. here is my inaugural post: "Speaking of gorillas in Times Square, Johnny Damon, the hairy one, is now a Yankee. He has chosen the Evil Empire over allegiance to the city, team, and fans that made him a baseball icon. My wife was shocked when I told her that Damon signed with the Yankees. Her response, "Wait a minute, I liked him. What about loyalty? Oh no, that's just wrong!" My daughter Ashley (eight years old) said, "Damon is a Yankee, how did that happen?" I just closed my eyes and re-imagined an October moment from 2004, "the year" > It was the top of the second inning, Yankee Stadium, the sacks were racked, and Damon "yanks" a grand slam into the right field bleachers, and the lights on the scoreboard blinked from 2-0 to 6-0... I remember that moment like it was right now. And with that moment re-imagined, I was OK. Johnny Damon fulfilled his destiny as the center fielder for the Boston Red Sox, he helped bring joy unspeakable and a lasting peace to the heart of Red Sox Nation. And now he is a member of the New York Yankees, the greatest chokers in the history of professional sports. Adieu #18.
