Schill shock: Curt crashes, 3 homers sink Sox
Schilling doesn't look right in this shot, nor did he look right most of last night. Since throwing 133 pitches last month in Cleveland, he is 1-2 with a 6.20 ERA in his last four starts and has allowed 31 hits (five of them homers, three of those last night) in 24 2/3 innings.
Meanwhile, The Moose shrugged off a 2 run homer by Big Papi David Ortiz in the 1st and a solo shot by Mike Lowell in the 2nd to go 6 and 2/3 for his 6th win of the year.
While Manny Ramirez's over the shoulder catch on a misplayed fly ball was TiVo worthy...
...UB is getting tired of watching Derek Jeter make these over the shoulder catches.
"Come on Alex, I'm waiting for ya!"
Apparently no amount of picking on E-Rod could keep him from turning on that Schilling meatball to take a 4-3 lead...
Maybe their superb play last night will prompt them to do another topless shoot like the one above in SI that was unearthed by Deadspin...
There is a disturbing trend that UB has been noticing more and more when the Red Sox and Yankoffs hook up. That trend is Red Sox and Yankoff fans dating or even, God forbid, marrying one another. After receiving some emails on this, UB decided to consult a female Yankoff fan to get her take on the "unnatural" dating phenomenon.
In consulting "The Yankees Chick" UB posed the question, "What would be worse a male Yankoff fan dating a female Red Sox fan or a female Yankoff fan dating a male Red Sox fan." UB explained that his view was that neither was okay and that the very idea made him sick. "Yankees Chick" was of a similar mind:
"Any (female) Yanks or Sox fan that would (date/sleep with) a guy supporting the opposing team clearly isn't much of a fan anyway, so I'd say the guys don't have much to worry about...I'm sure there are many Sox fans dating Yankees fans and vice versa...not that I would ever..."
Amazingly UB actually agrees with a Yankoff fan...How could you be a hardcore Red Sox-Yankoff fan if you dated someone who supported the other...No matter how attractive they are:
