SOME RANDOM THOUGHTS

Picking up some of the thoughts that are bounding around in my head at the beginning of the weekend:

Remember when in April the debate was about whether Bronson Arroyo or Tim Wakefield should go to the bullpen or not? I am thinking that they should both chill in the pen for a few when Curt Schilling returns and bring up lefty Abe Alvarez for a while. I like the idea of having two lefties in the rotation.

I think Tedy Bruschi should and likely will sit out the 2005 season if only due to the surgery he had to close a small hole in his heart. Of course, his return to the field in 2006 will likely be the biggest story of the decade.

* * *

You go, Richard Seymour. Hold out as long as you can. But you still will not see a contract extension this season. There is only player the Patriots will go out of their way for to re-do a contract with two years remaining and he just got his: Tom Brady.

* * *

I just cannot wait to see Doug Flutie playing for the Patriots again. I do not even care if it is pre-season only. I am worked up and pumped up for the NFL right now. Look out, Mimit, here comes an open field tackle! MEOWWWWW!

* * *

I wonder if Carl Pavano wishes he signed with the Red Sox right now.

* * *

I wonder when Bruce Chen is going to wake up. He should be the story of the season. Damn that Ray Miller.

* * *

1:05PM and 2:20PM starting times for Friday games should be declared null and void. No one reveres baseball tradition as much as I do, but I just cannot stand missing out on these afternoon games while I am stuck at work.

* * *

Speaking of baseball traditions, I am still pissed off from opening day that the Cincinnati Reds do not play the first game of the season anymore. They are the first professional team EVER. They deserve it. It is not that difficult to pull off. Damn ESPN. Damn ESPN to hell.

* * *

I miss Mike Greenwell crashing into the Green Monster in left.

* * *

Johnny Damon is no Fred Lynn. At least Lynn caught the ball when he knocked himself unconscious running into the fence in centerfield at Fenway.
