Monday, anything good to yak about?

Doug:
On Buddha's birthday
The oak casts a long shadow –
Throw to 3rd, dummy.

 

Mike:
A postgame pressah
So many questions asked –
Sound of falling snow.

 

Al:
Yeah, somebody call Ma Joad because we've got one fucked up Oki.

 

Doug:
Funny thing is, aftah Beckett's ubah dubah return from the DL and the win on Friday, I was like, "You know, the Wildcahd is still in play and if they can just make the playoffs, well..."

 

Mike:
Despite all this, the Sox still have one of the best records in baseball.

 

Al:
Yeah, I'm trying to get my head around how it might feel to finish with the 4th best record in baseball and *not* make the playoffs.

2 a days start Thursday ;O

I know that relief pitchers are basically the guys not good enough to be starters or closers, but still good enough forthe bigs, but WTF? Why do we have such a plethora of shitbags in our bullpen.


Next up, hitting.

The Ma Joad/Oki comment might be the funniest thing you've ever written, and that's saying a lot. Awesome.

This surprised the hell out of me.

The food at Fenway is apparently mostly safe to eat.


//YEAH, I'M TRYING TO GET MY HEAD AROUND HOW IT MIGHT FEEL TO FINISH WITH THE 4TH BEST RECORD IN BASEBALL AND *NOT* MAKE THE PLAYOFFS''

Yup...that's what I've been thinking, too.

I think there's a comic to be made from the NY part of that food report (and yeah, I'm suprised by Boston's numbers, not at all by NY's)

I have got to stop being optimistic in the beginning of any Red Sox season. This one in particular let me down.

The worm in Mezcal,OK-Fruit flies in Chivas,uh,not so much ;O

um, ya. or, no.

this is tough one to puzzle out.

I'm still on, bored.

Bulls, Blackhawks, Cubs, and White Sox all have 0% violations. Chicago health inspectors inspect vendors while the stadiums are empty, when no workers are preparing or serving food. That usually does the trick.

//Miller Park
Milwaukee Brewers
Vendors with critical violations: 33%
Inspection report excerpt: Mold was growing in ice machines at six locations.//


Nice!!

Tropicana Field
Tampa Bay Rays
Vendors with critical violations: 100%


Inspection report excerpt: Several violations addressed dirty countertops, utensils and equipment. Although every report indicated a critical violation, all vendors met basic inspection standards to keep operating.


I think we have a winner, folks!

...but do they serve Cat's Ass coffee??

Gillette Stadium
Citical violations 0
I wonder if they checked Bob's tailgate bbq?

As to the 'Sox, like Lear, I will be the pattern of all patience and say nothing. (I wrote C O C K S in text messages a fair bit over the last two days but)

In general: In a given 24 hour period, I've noticed at trimodal tendency for Soxaholix comments: First, there's a burst of reactions to the strip, i.e., "hey HB, I just showered my keyboard with coffee." The second mode comments are (usually) typified by the more thoughtful regulars (including the immortal louclinton) advancing/expanding on some aspect of the first mode: The third mode can be called the "soxdownunder" mode, in that it contains US commenter laggards as well as Soxdownunder's time zone adjusted comments.

Also, do me a fucking favor and get your team hot...a division race with the Rays is approximately 64% less exciting than a Red Sox/Yankees stretch run.

oops that's "a trimodal" Stupid fuck.

Wow, I'm a mode! I thought I was just a lonely fuck.

wow, I'm immodal.

I'm a laggard. On a good day.

Laggard Here.

I'm just here for punch and pie.

The very model of a modern Major General Peter ;)

I just got out of Monday's meeting. And I'm barely kidding.
