Baseball 2009

Post  John on Mon Mar 09, 2009 3:26 pm

As an avid Red Sox fan I have no compassion for the trials and tribulations of the NY Yankees. Well it apppears that A-Rod will be out of their line-up until possibly the All-Star break. No one is saying anything, but I believe the cyst on his hip could be related to the steroid shots his cousin gave him.That being the case, it serves him right. You know the old saying, when you play with fire, you get burned.

FYI - Alex Rodriguez underwent arthroscopic surgery Monday to repair torn cartilage in his right hip, and doctors said they found nothing that would keep him from returning to the lineup in May.

The World Baseball Classic


Congratulations goes out to the Netherlands, which defeated the Dominican Republic knocking them out of the World Baseball Classic. The Dominicans certainly don't believe it actually happened.

Tonight it's the Netherlands vs the USA. May the best team win.

Japan beat South Korea 5-3 to record their second straight World Baseball Classic title on Monday night, leading star outfielder Ichiro Suzuki to declare that “God” had descended on him. Suzuki managed a tie-breaking two-run single in the extra 10th inning to help his side to a victory over their bitter rivals in the Classic final at Dodger Stadium.

Yesterday started out misty, but as I crossed over the Whitestone Bridge into Flushing the fog lifted. Going through the gates of Citi Field for the very time the sun broke out. The only damper on this day was that the game was not a major league game....St. Johns vs Georgetown. At $5 a ticket it was well worth getting a preview of this first class new home of the NY Mets. Looking forward to coming back for some real games.

Rodger, those are really nice pics of the park. Thanks for posting them. Nice seeing you in that Mr. Met get-up. Laughing

I'll be at Citi Field this Saturday for the Red Sox vs. Mets exhibition game. Tickets were only $19. Can't wait to check out the Jackie Robinson Rotunda and all the "new anemities". I'm anticipating a great day of ball.

If you have the MLB Station you can get a look at the new Yankee Stadium when the Chicago Cubs play an exhibition game there tonight.

I saw that game. The sportcasters took the viewers on a tour of the new stadium. Very impressive! What I'd like to know, is that in this failing economy how could one city afford to build two ballmarks at the same time?

The Steinbrener's & Wilpon's have the money and the power to build anything they want to. And they're also very good friends with New York's mayor Bloomberg. I cannot say enough about CitiField. It's spectacular. There's a very good reason why this Bostonian is praising something in New York. Seems that Fred Wilpon has a thing for Fenway. He and his architects studied every nook and crany of old Fenway and adapted many of Fenway's features for CitiField. Too bad the Sox won't be returning to CitiField during the actual season. The Mets play the Sox at Fenway. I was looking foward to revisit the new park. Maybe it will be a Sox vs Mets World Series. That would be cool.







Senator Edward Kennedy threw out the ceremonial first pitch at the Boston Red Sox season opener today. With fans cheering, Kennedy walked across the first-base line and toward the mound with a cane in his left hand before giving it to a Red Sox employee and climbing onto the dirt. Standing in front of the pitcher's rubber, a smiling Kennedy bounced the ball to newly elected Hall of Famer Jim Rice, who stood a few feet in front of the mound. The Red Sox former left fielder than raised one finger as if to say "one more." Kennedy, 77, then threw a ball that Rice caught.







Afterward, near the Red Sox dugout, Rice, wearing his No. 14 white Red Sox jersey, handed him the ball. Kennedy, wearing a red jacket with "Red Sox" across the front, thanked him before tossing it into the stands. The ceremony came 97 years after Kennedy's grandfather, Boston mayor John "Honey Fitz" Fitzgerald, threw out the first pitch at the first major league game played at Fenway Park on April 20, 1912. Fitzgerald was a member of the "Royal Rooters," Red Sox fans who paraded in the outfield before games. "It's the thrill of a lifetime," Kennedy said in a statement. "I know how proud [Fitzgerald] was to be a loyal member of the famous Royal Rooters and to be a part of Red Sox history that day."

The Mets were on a 4 game losing streak until tonight, when they beat the lowly Nationals 4-3 with ace Johann Santana on the mound. No

The Mets lost miserably yesterday to the 'lowly' Nationals with less than stellar ace Oliver Perez on the mound.

And things are not looking so good for NY's other team. lol!
Over the weekend the Yankees were swept by the Sox at Fenway.

The standout game of the weekend series had to be Saturday's Slugfest. Jason Varitek hit a grand slam, Mike Lowell drove in six runs and the Boston Red Sox earned their biggest comeback victory against the Yankees since 1968, beating New York 17-11 Saturday, for their ninth straight win. In all, 12 pitchers threw 385 pitches in a 4 hour, 21 minute game and managed to retire the side in order just twice, once for each team.

With yesterday's win, the Sox are on a roll - 10 consecutive wins. sunny

Pity New York with their first class stadiums and second rate teams.

Damn the Cleveland Indians for ending the Red Sox 11 game win streak. Evil or Very Mad
Oh well, I guess all good things eventually have to come to an end.

Interleague Play

Some interesting baseball this weekend.
Phillies vs Yankees at the new Yankee Stadium
Mets vs Red Sox at Fenway

Would have taken my boys over to the Bronx for one of the Yankess games, but price of tickets at that new park is way beyond my limited budget. We watched the games at home on the TV. Flipping the channels, back and forth.

In the end it was the right decision. Phil out hit the Yanks 7-3
Nothing worse than shelling out big time money and seeing your home team lose. Sad
