Still euphoric from last night’s come from behind win over the Tigers by the Boston Red Sox, I was surprised to see a photo on Facebook this morning of Torii Hunter and the Boston “bullpen” cop with matching V’s, one arms, one legs.
It’s a great photo of David Ortiz’s game-tying home run blast, and appears to have been taken by Stan Grossfield of the Boston Globe. (At least that’s where I traced it.)
Ever since John Farrell started managing the Boston Red Sox, things have changed. For the better. In the year since Farrell arrived the team went from worst, and is currently in first.

Every year I say I’m not going to watch so much baseball, I have better things to do, and every year I break that promise. As a kid and young adult I played softball, but except for a company game here and there, my playing days are over. But I still love the game.

The Red Sox and Yankees are true rivals. Their games are arduous and long, with each team working hard to tire out the other pitcher and hit that long ball. Without the Yankees, the baseball season wouldn’t be nearly as exciting. So I celebrate the rivalry.
