Beuller… Beuller?

The “countdown” to Manny’s 500 HR mark. Has seemed to hit a plateau. He was hot, red hot, at the start of the season. But this past week, I was hoping to see one such run on tv while I was at home. No luck.

 

I forget which commercial- Budweiser, perhaps?- that had a scene of the New York Times Square Ball dropping on New Year’s Eve and the ball gets stuck. The crowd just kept repeating the last countdown number.

Manny, how about popping it down to 3?

Am I impatient. Yea, probaby unfairly so given that Manny is hitting at an impressive .370 and he already is tied in third with half a dozen other players in homerun hits. Still.

Lugo… $%*&#$

Two errors in two games. Red Sox, four errors in two games and still counting. Team: The fact that we’re celebrating Youkilis’s error-less streak doesn’t mean you can compensate for lack thereof. And is this how you welcome your ace back??

You folks are too well-paid for this many mistakes. Why else would it be officially tagged as “Error”? Think about it.

Keep sluggin’ in those homeruns. You’re going to need ’em.

Update:

Three ef-fing errors by one player in one game. Apparently, we fans are not the only ones looking forward to Lowrie. Tell me why I shouldn’t shut off the radio.

To Toronto’s credit, they are coming strong this year. I believe we’ve overlooked them too long. They just may be the other AL East team to reckon with.

What does it say about what’s preoccupying my mind when each time the broadcaster says “Rod Barajas” I keep hearing “Barack Obama”?
