Sox wilt for Lilly

Lincoln Falls to Thousand Oaks 3-1


Tek Will Serve Four-Game Suspension Starting Tonight

"...not all players can play in Boston. It takes a certain make-up to be successful here. If a player is not a "gamer" or a "dirt dog" it will be difficult to fit in into this city. The fans here want players who grind it out in the good and the bad times."
-- Jason Varitek mailbag on The Remy Report

Manny's in the Driver's Seat

"Boston is the best city ever," he says. "The fans are great. They love me. Oh my God. You go out to eat, they don't let you pay for nothing. You win it there and people will go nuts. I'm going to party for a month."


See Tuesday's Boston Globe as Stan Grossfeld follows Manny as he picks the color on his Dad's new wheels at "Rad Rides by Troy," in the village of Manteno, 53 miles south of Chicago. Ramirez went here on a Sox day off to select a color for a 1967 Lincoln Continental convertible he purchased and is having totally restored for his Dad's birthday. Kevin Millar remains pissed that they chose to stop at Mickey D's over the chicken stompin' KFC he represents.

McManny is Lovin' It


Sox Wilt for Lilly


Sleepy Sox Shutout 3-0, 13 Ks
and only three hits


Pedro starts slow, finishes strong. He tips his cap to Lilly. Whatever. It's no big whoop. Never is.

Wonder if Millar will be talking about how many games back of the Yankees they are, or if Timlin will talk about how the old Yankees pitching staff is going to have problems again?

At least Kentucky Fried (notice how the Sox have won since his commercials stopped?) gets it re: the boos when he told Dan Roche on Red Sox This Week on UPN-38 "They boo because they want to cheer you." So maybe he'll learn to keep his mouth shut about the Yankees (when you're playing the White Sox and Blue Jays) too. As Kenny Rogers sings "they'll be time enough for countin' when the dealing's done." ... in November.
