Now, live from Boston Masserchewsex, its Ulysses Karl Redsox ............

This evening will be game number one out of eight of my annual pilgramage to Fenway Park as the Sox entertain Ichiro Suziki and the Seattle Mariners. However before that I'm going to hop on the "T" and go to Northeastern University's game against William & Mary (in keeping with today's Royal theme on H&V).



Enjoy the day, hope the sox show up for you.

Bobby Jenks stinks...... stinks !!

The Sox were pretty awful, relying on two homers by reserve outfielder Mike Cameron, to get a lead only for Dice-K to go down injured and then for Jenks to blow the game.

Watching Ichiro is always great. He now has over 3500 hits when combining his career in Japan and the USA and is a lock for the Hall of Fame.

The game at Northeastern was far more entertaining.

Its Virginia @ Boston College this afternoon followed by more stress at Fenway tonight

I thought that my Minor League baseball trip wasn't until June but the Red Sox wouldn't be able to beat the Alberquerque Isotopes at the moment.

They loaded the bases twice tonight and had runners on in most innings, but still couldn't score.

I'm seriously considering bailing on at least one Sox game and splashing out for a Bruins ticket instead on Wednesday.

They will turn it around, the locals won't stand for it for too long and they will bring in someone new.

Well, they managed to win today despite the best efforts of Bobby Jenks to screw things up again. Wake pitched well in a spot start for the ill Buchholz, leaving with a 2-0 lead only to see Jenks blow the lead.

Carl Crawford finally showed some signs of life by driving in the winning run in the bottom of the ninth (the runner being at third thanks to a costly rare misplay by the great Ichiro).

Things continued to get better last night at Fenway with Papi hitting his first homer for a month and the team finally solving Jerad Weaver, who'd been the best pitcher in baseball so far this season.

I left the Bruins game with them leading 4-1 with three minutes to play (so I missed them scoring on a Power Play at long last). I already knew that the Sox game was is a delay, so I was confident of seeing some baseball.
 
However, I never expected to see 8 innings worth and to still be in Fenway at 02:45. There were only a few hundred of us left at the end (the place looked like Cleveland !!).
 
I was sat right behind homeplate for most the time I was there. I'll have to check mlb.com later to see if I made the TV.
 
Just about to head over to Fenway again now for todays game.

If you find some pictures, post them and did you take a camera yourself?

I just got a great image of a bunch of sox fans storming up to a castle on a hill, with picks and rakes demanding a change!

HAHA

Seriously, stop sweating it.  The sox will be fine (unfortunately) and will still be in the run for a playoff spot come August/September...

I'm not on FB but post them whenever you get chance, it must have been quite a unique atmosphere
