Sox/Yanks: A Prologue

Are you tired of waiting?  Well, it’s here.  It’s the prequel I like to call Red Sox/Yankees and it’s premiering tonight at Thom’s at 7pm.

That’s right, rivalry theatre is back.  Get the boo-birds out for Cody Ransom and Brett Gardner. Get behind stalwarts Jeff Baily and P McAnulty.  And, witness tragedy unfold when pitcher M McBeth gets sent to the minors because of what he calls a disputed call: "Fair is foul, and foul is fair".

When questioned as to which hit did him in, McBeth blamed the two-bagger: "Double, double toil and trouble!''  Alas, "what's done is done". 

There will be many leaving the Sox troupe soon.  But, the most important news is the two players that are joining it.  After leading their team to ignominious losses to the likes of Italy and the Netherlands David Ortiz and Jason Bay are back in Sox camp where they belong.

However, there will be one actor conspicuously absent from this here stage.  I'll give you a hint who it is:  His name begins with “A” and ends with “McBluelips”.  Any guesses? Anyone.  Alright, you can stop the emails now. In honor of his honor’s absence in which he was draining an abscess we’ve decided to make sure his presence is felt at the bar.  No, there will not be Madonna music (though that was fun last year).  There will be available a bunch of Tic Tacs on the bar for everyone to enjoy. Just please don’t throw them at each other.  You know who you are.  Every time the MFY bat a third baseman, make some noise.

What else?

We are less than one week away from our Harpoon Quad event on Thursday, March 19.   Join Sawxheads.  Check out the twins again. Follow me on Twitter.  Don’t forget to join Thom’s free college bracket here.
