Home Game for Boston Red Sox Tonight at 7p.m. (EST) against New York Yankees

Ahh.  Spring is such a wonderful thing.  It brings warm weather, beautiful skies, romantic evenings and of course BASEBALL.  Not just any baseball ladies and gentlemen. It brings the Boston Red Sox.    And tonight they play the New York Yankees. 

The interesting thing about me is that I actually like the Yankees mildly, save A-Rod, who cut my heart out with a spoon (or needle).  However, if asked to choose a team – I’d have to say Boston.

I live in Cardinal territory and used to work for the Memphis Redbirds (old farm team for Cardinals).  However, my passion for the games rests with the B-Team, and more specifically lies with #34 David Américo Ortiz Arias AKA Big PAPI.  At 6’4’’, 230 lbs and simply brilliant with that swing, what do you expect me to do?  He’s proven himself over and over again.  I don’t care what some of you might say.

I’m sure that the Twins miss him, but oh well.  Anyway, watch him tonight put some whoop-up on Yankees. 

Below, I have highlighted those awesome players (some older than dirt – no offense Wakefield) that I think make the Sox special.  Enjoy.  And I’ll fill you in later, for those of you who don’t tune in, to tell you what happened.
