Two-Stepping Through the Park
Seems that when I miss games, we win. I am going to keep this trend going, as I have plans tonight that do not allow for game watching. Clement was solid last night, I guess, except a little blip in the 7th. And Park, once tired, was pounded by the Sox. Payton will be starting for Johnny tonight and Curt, as you all now know, will be pitching out of the bullpen.
Andrew has been putting lots of thought into "Curt as Closer" idea. I would be interested in seeing how this would play out. Since he usually starts strong, then fades after 5 or 6 (post surgery, I'm talkin'), it could be a good fit for now. So, I might see a Schilling appearance on Saturday yet (in some capacity)! I'll look into getting one of Shonda's charity scarves to wear for good luck.
Meanwhile: Al-Qaeda Europe. Jesus Christ. My heart just sank when I heard this. Death tolls and injury reports are all over the place. Horribly tragic. And so, so frightening.
