Today Rookie Jacoby Ellsbury wanted to make sure that Clay was not the only one who made a statement to the front office and to the fans about how hungry he was to play here. His 1st Major League Homerun, a Diving Coco-esque Catch and a Stolen Base ALL IN TODAY's Game. The rookies are all wanting to show this September why they should remain in Boston and not be sent back to the farm. Now don't get me wrong....the farms are nice but city life brings much more excitement. We got the Win today with Lester pitching allowing only 6 hits and 2 runs in 6+ innings. And not to be outdone...Coco came in and made his OWN spectacular sliding catch!!
Six games up now...speaking of them....A BIG SHOUT OUT to our Haverhill Boy Pena again who got a 3 run Homerun off Roger's playmate to help the Devil Rays overcome and put those spanks back in their place.
Onward to Kill MORE BIRDS....
