The baseball season officially ended for me yesterday afternoon. As I long for the days in April where I knew our pitching was suspect but hoped our hitting would help us muddle through I can find solace in the fact that unlike 2011 and 2012 (and 2014) at least these kids fought til the bitter end and we have potential to win in the future.
So here’s to you Brock Holt for your first appearance in an All Star game and for hitting for the cycle and for almost always coming through when we needed you and here’s to you Mookie Betts for totally being our superstar of the future. Thanks for that amazing catch to rob that obnoxious Chris Davis of homerun in that meaningless game in September.
Here’s to you Jackie Bradley JR sure your hitting ability sucks but there isn’t a player in the game I would rather have in our outfield to throw out some dumbass Yankee who thinks he can score from 1st with your amazing arm and here’s to you Xander Bogaerts for letting us know way early in your career that you’re the next Jacoby Ellsbury who will run out on us to become a Yankee at the first sign of free agency so I was smart enough to not get attached to you at any point in the last few years and here’s to you David Ortiz for homerun 500 and actually running out your hits cuz the fans finally booed your ass when they should have done it 7 years ago and here’s to you Eduardo Rodriguez for one hell of rookie debut 2 years before you probably should have been here and here’s to you Pablo Panda Sandavol because in spite of the bitter media waiting to pounce on your ass for stupid reason’s you stayed quiet and classy and didn’t let the idiot reporters like that douche bag from the Herald get to you when if it was me I would have dope slapped him yesterday and here’s to you Handley Rameriz for taking the same route as Panda and I hope you come back next year and make them all pay.
Here’s to you Henry Owens for showing part of your potential after being thrust into the spotlight way too early and here’s to you Alexi Ogando, for not being twins and screwing up every game you played twice as badly as you did on your own and here’s to you Wade Miley for well being better than the rest of your so called “ace” pitching staff and here’s to you Clay Buccholz because in spite of the fact you pretty much sucked with the exception of a few games I can’t help but still like you because well no reason I just do and here’s to you run on sentences because damn it I don’t remember where every damn period or , is supposed to go. It’s been ***** damn years since I sat in an English class and here’s to you Blake Swihart for filling in for a late injury by Christian Vazquez to compete admirably like other players on this list years before you should have.
Here’s to you Travis Shaw for batting 375 for a good part of the year and backing up Ortiz when he got walked and here’s to you Koji and Taz just because like Okajima I will always remember what you did for us when we won the world series (2007 and 2013 respectively) and
and last but certainly not least thanks to you Larry Lucchino,
for 3 world series we wouldn’t have with out you. I am sorry the fans at Fenway we’re too stupid to give you the farewell cheer you deserved the same day Don got his standing Ovation but sadly sometimes the idiot fans believe the BS the newspapers shovel out but I am not one of them. I will always remember you talking to fans during the worst Red Sox season in my history of being a Sox fan and not hiding like the other managers and for that I will defend you to my death.
Other RedSox players if you weren’t mentioned it was because you didn’t deserve it:)
See you next year….
Case sorry about your tigers year but they will be back in no time. Here’s to a healthy MVP
So baseball isn’t really over and as always I have to pick a team I want to win so if I had to pick someone it would be the Pirates. They are the only team left I don’t hate for one reason or another. I also wouldn’t mind the Cardinals.
So die Yankees die is my first thought:) Same with Mets ( I don’t root for NY) No thanks Dodgers unless Carl Crawford is dead. Same to you Blue Jays. Only player on your team that doesn’t act like a fool when they win is Dickey. Have I ever mentioned how much I hate David Price? I hope the Blue Jays are one and done. I hate KC and their new found bandwagon fans that weren’t around before last year. Who’s left? Houston, yep their bandwagon fans are just as bad as the Blue Jays who had no fans a month ago. I also hate the Texas Rangers so pretty much it’s Go Pirates and Cardinals, woo
