Red Sox Series–Insults and Injuries

First of all, we wish Marlon Byrd a speedy recovery after he took a fastball to the face and sustained facial fractures. We need your smile and swagger back ASAP.

It's like sunshine.

Also going down over the weekend, Matt Garza with elbow tightness and Jeff Baker with a groin strain.

To add insults to the injuries, the final game of the night was shown on ESPN. I don’t think we need to go into further detail, but we will. ESPN hates the Cubs. It was painful to listen to. Thank goodness for Pat and Keith.

There wasn’t a whole lot of opportunity for fun this series between the blowout, the injuries, and ESPN. But there were a few moments.

Yay! We winned!


-Len: “That’s the first Cubs hit in this ballpark since 1918.”

-The eight run eighth. We will never get tired of these Naked Rallies.

-The only fun thing ESPN did: pointing out that Tim Wakefield was playing pro baseball when Starlin Castro was born.

-The Throwbacks. We love the throwbacks. Tony Campana looked adorable.

-Barney with yet another multi-hit game.

-Aramis Ramirez and Kevin Youkilis having a very involved conversation on third about Youkilis’s ground ball making a sudden right turn.

-Did we mention the throwbacks?

Go Ubs!

  1. I thought the Wakefield playing baseball when Castro was born was the most interesting line of the night as well. Wish the series could have turned out better for the Cubs. Wishing a speedy recovery for Byrd, Garza, Baker, Wells, Cashner, Soto…did I miss anyone? (yikes)

      It would have been nice to get a series win at Fenway, for sure.

      I think you got everybody. Yeesh. We need a healthy streak as much as we need a winning streak.
