Love for Lugo Campaign

Julio Lugo isn't having the best season, is he? His batting average is .190! Right here and now I'm starting a grass-roots campaign to get Lugo's average back above the Mendoza line. The campaign is very simple. All you have to do is show Lugo a little bit of love. Next time you go to Fenway, cheer very loudly for Lugo. Pretend he's Orlando Cabrera, if that helps. Hell, pretend he's Nomah. Do what you have to do, just

The only way you can help him is by CHEERING for him.

Booing at slumping players only makes things worse.
Case in point: Bellhorn. 'Nuff said.

So, the next time you're at Fenway, show Lugo some love.

In memory of Rod Beck

He passed away this weekend. He was only 38.

Schilling is practically perfect.

Many amazing things happened for the Sox during the last few days.

JD Drew showed us that he does know how to use his bat, but he usually chooses not to.

Dice-K showed us that he doesn't even know how to hold a bat, let alone swing it, and that he is very good at striking out.

And Tito showed us what he looks like when he's mad.

Really mad...

I swear, I saw him throw the eff bomb around a few times.

But most importantly, Schill proved that he is still the ace.

He would have pitched a perfect game, but Julio Lugo made an error, letting a guy get on base. It would be the only baserunner until the 9th inning, when the 28th batter got a hit, ending Schill's no-hit bid. Of course, if Lugo hadn't made the error and everything else had happened exactly the way it did, Schill wouldn't have faced that 28th batter, because he already would have gotten the final out of the game...a perfect game!

Of course, the fact still remains that Schill pitched a complete game, giving up only one hit and no walks. That's pretty damn impressive. I guess he's still got it!

Lugo, on the other hand, was in the dog house for his error.

The team made him stand in a corner for the rest of the game...

How embarrassing...

Although some people were betting against him,
Schill proved to everyone that he's still awesome.

Isn't Mike Lowell so cute?

I'm sorry, D-Lowe.

Last night Derek Lowe pitched 6 innings of no hit ball. And then I jinxed him. Oops. I made the mistake of saying to my sister, "Did you know that D-Lowe has a no hitter going?" And she said, "You aren't supposed to say that out loud! Now he's gonna blow it!" And I said, "No, don't worry. He'll be fine," because I'm not superstitious (well, except for when it concerns my lucky post-season shirt).

Of course, D-Lowe gave up a hit to the next batter he faced!
It's obviously all my fault.
So, Derek, I'm sorry about your no-go no-no.

Look how pissed he was when that guy got a hit.

No, Derek, it wasn't your jilted ex-wife. It was me. Sorry.

There is some good news.
After leaving Boston, the Yanks resumed their losing streak last night.

Joe Torre was not happy.

But, he's working on a solution...

Johnny Damon's devising his own plan to save the season...

If you can't beat 'em, join 'em!
