The bat and the fury

Papi gets old, and yet what he does nevah gets old.


Papi is the mausoleum of all hope and desire...


And he gives the clutch hit to us not that we may remember time, but that we might forget it now and then for a moment and not spend all of our breath trying to conquer it.*



Faulkner also said, "“The past is never dead. It's not even past.” And yes, he was talking about Papi.

"The futah nevah comes"


BTW Red Sox will be at best .500 coming tomorrow, so the Friday strip blackout will be in effect.

Had he been here, my Butler would have gone slightly nuts over 34's 'tater. As it is, he probably learned about it over Iceland.
Task of the day. Post this for him:
He gets empty seats on either side of him, without asking. He is the creepiest man in the world.
"Stay Creepy, my Friends".

Cafardo is again goading the Red Sox re Ellsbury in the Globe today. He must like to tweak Lucchino and spark the Yanks/Levine rivalry. But they should have the stones to go with JBJr in CF, it will pay off when it matters in October.

Well, it seems Farrell is reading this fine strip...

Ug. The T was like the Star Wars bar today, if all the creatures in the Star Wars bar had avian flu and the manners of Jaba. (The Hutt, not Chamberlain. Well, either, actually.)

Can we get Buckholz circa last year back, please?

The early-season Buckholz. The 12-1 Buckholz. That one.

Looks like I picked the wrong season to quit amphetamines.

Need Bullfrog. At least you can't see that stuff. Pine tar? A bit obvious.

Lester beams Ells tonight.

Maybe he just forgot to use toilet paper when wiping? He is a member of the Skankees after all.

Me have long meeting now. Me say have great weekend all. Hopefully we'll have something fun to yak about on Monday.

Looks like I picked the wrong season to pony up for MLB.tv. Losing in audio only is less traumatic.

And the world is just a little bit sunnier this fine morning...
