A little off the top

The Sox lose to the Mariners and Wakefield's knuckleball fails to flutter again …

Mike:
Nothing lost in translation on this one, Ichiro San and the rest of the Mariners got into Wakefield like a Ginsu on sushi .

 

Doug:
I have to confess that Ichiro is my fave opposing player. Love the way he treats the bat the way a Tarrentino character wields a sword.

 

Mike:
Yeah, I hear that. My favorite from the opposition has been Rocco Baldelli, but going oh-fer against the Spankees? Hmmm … Not so much.

 

Doug:
Wakefield's the only Sox pitcher to post losses in the last 16 games … is this just the nature of the flutterball or has the dude lost the mofo mojo?

 

Mike:
Maybe it's that he hasn't gone the funky hair route?

 

Doug:
What like Bronson Arroyo? What the fuck is up with that?

 

Mike:
Cornrows are a questionable fashion statement on a Jamaican, but on a skinny white boy from Texas there's no doubt: that shit don't work.

 

Doug:
Abso-fucking-lutely. Arroyo needs to go for that skinny white trash look like that guy in Brown Bunny. You know all fucking Charles Manson and shit. Chicks dig that joint.

 

Mike:
Fuck, when exactly did this white trash, greasy hair, wrangler and trucker cap look become the "in" thing? Did I miss the fucking memo on that one?

 

Doug:
No shit. Who knew that's the look that'll get you an onscreen hummer from a hottie like Chloe Sevigny?

 

Mike:
Fuck yeah! I'd never wash my hair again for some of that indie-film chick action.

 

Comments

Maybe Wake should ease up on the acting career, do a few less Bernie & Phyl commercials (one's too many) and work on adding a pitch or two to go with his jr. college fastball and his knuckler/high school fastball.

Awwwww, come on, h.b. Bronson still looks cute. Skinny little kid with cornrows. What's not to love?

JB,

Just another example of how little I understand the female mind. :)

Do you think Bronson will go the route of Clemens, i.e., starts out skinny then turns into a modern day Babe Ruth with regard to body size?

Hmmm, very good question, h.b. And after some thought I have come up with an answer. While our skinny Jamaican wannabe may "bulk up" as he ages, he will never, EVER be able to go the route of Clemens. I mean, have you seen the size of Rajah's head? Sweet Christ. It's not human.

Just curious, did you get your Ichiro-Tarantino image from my comments on Cursed & First 8/6/04?
Cuz I'd be honored!

I must also confess that I love watching the little sumbitch play. He's scary-fast too. It's not f'ing wonder he's threatening the single-season hit record... he earns hits with speed on balls that are routine outs for mere mortal runners.

UTSoxFan: I don't have a "specific memory" (to sound like a politician) of grabbing your image, but that doesn't mean I didn't do so at a subconscious level.

When I am aware of lifting something directly from another blog or message board (or anyplace), I always try to remember to give proper credit in the "notes" section.

If I did get that image from you but was unaware, thanks!
