Come On Guys!!
Last night’s game between the Red Sox and and Angels was not good, man. Not good at all. The Sox got shut out in a 5-0 loss. Jon Lester allowed three runs in six innings, and Ramon Ramirez allowed two. The offense only had four hits and they committed three errors! Ergh. It was not good. Not the greatest way to start off the playoffs, but hey. We’ve seen this team work miracles before. I should not start panicking, but I really don’t want to have to cheer for any other team than the Red Sox this postseason.
Come on, guys, keep your heads up. You’ll get them today.
Josh Beckett is pitching, and we all know how incredible he’s been in the postseason. Let’s hope that he’ll be able to even things up for the Red Sox tonight.
The Dodgers won again last night, which is very frustrating. Get it going, St. Louis!!
When I opened up the newspaper yesterday morning, I found some very perplexing news. Marcus Giles was arrested because his wife said he had assulted her.
Oh boy. Before the season started, I blogged a little about Brian Giles’ situation. His ex-girlfriend accused him of abusing her, and there was a whole mess of that situation. Brian countered that she had abused him, and it was pretty crazy. Brian barely played at all for us this season, and it’s extremely likely that this was his last season in a Padres uniform.
Now, Marcus is getting into it! I almost can’t believe it. He’s been married for quite a while, and they have three little girls. This is just crazy!
Marcus played for one season with the Padres, and I loved him. He got to play with his brother and all that, plus he played pretty well for us. The Padres relased him after that season, though, and he hasn’t played in the majors since. Oh dear.
Well, the Padres made a few moves yesterday, nothing too exciting. Cha Sueng Baek, Cliff Floyd, and Shawn Hill were waived. All three were fails this year. Baek was supposed to be a big part of our rotation, but he got hurt and was out all year. Pretty much the same story for the other two dudes. We actually had a lot of guys who that happened to before the season. It was not good. Like Mark Worrell, one of the pieces in the Khalil Greene trade, the side-armer. The Padres really liked what they were seeing…and then he had to have Tommy John surgery. So much for him.
We’ve got some exciting postseason baseball going on right now. Wow, it’s been amazing! Hope you all are having a lot of fun watching it 🙂
GO PADRES’ FRONT OFFICE!! GO RED SOX!!
Personally, I partially blame the umpires for part of that game. I’m looking forward to seeing Beckett pitch, he’s my favorite starter. It’s a mess when athletes are accused of anything. Hopefully the situation gets worked out with Giles. Hope you’re enjoying the postseason too!!
I am so disappointed for both Giles brothers. I loved Marcus so much in 2007 but ever since he got arrested, it changed everything. Sorry for the Red Sox but the Cardinals are not looking so sharp too!
That’s a bummer about the Giles boys. I liked watching both of them. They’re gritty .. .gamers. Sad to hear their personal lives may have some turmoil.
Great games to watch huh?

The Sox definately didn’t seem to be alive last night, maybe the long trip out west…it’s still early and lots to play…
Outside the Phillies Looking In
Honestly I enjoyed watching the Angels finally beat the Sox.
It is very sad when our players have such messed up personal lives I hope they get back on track.
Well it looks like tonight’s game is a close one, tied right now. Too bad about Giles – it’s unfortunate that things that are personal get made so public just because they are ballplayers.
