Manny in the House

Ladies and Gentleman.....Mannnnyyyy Rammmmmirrreeeezzz
A scruffy looking Manny reported to camp today. 2 days early. Cool.
His agent got grilled by some reporters with a bunch of dumb ass questions. Maybe if people didn't pester him with so much annoying shit he wouldn't be bothered by the Boston Media. There is some big flap about Manny agreeing to do a car show instead of going to camp. He didn't go to the car show so who cares. Let's move on. Enough of the badgering.
He stepped right into some BP against Dice-K. In a 75 pitch session with some good hitters the only hit off Dice-K was a little single up the middle by Big Papi. I think this guy is going to be the shit.
It's exciting to see scruffy Manny swinging the bat.
First Spring game is day after tomorrow. That's cool.

Time for new excitement

Well the new season is fast approcahing and I am finding myself very excited about the upcoming season. There was a lot of madness in the off season. The biggest being the talking to (for 50 million) and the signing of Dice-K Matusakawaka, or however you spell his name. The crazy pitching phenom from Japan seems sure to really help us out this year. To say that he has brought insane amounts of press to spring training would be an understatement. He ptiched a BP session last Friday and apparenttly was pretty damn impressive. I am looking forward to him unleashing this Gyro Ball thing on some dumb yankees.
We signed some other good talent. The one I am liking the most is Julio Lugo. I like good short-stops. I am hoping this JD Drew character will live up to the hype. I think we paid him more then we were willing to pay Damon which is a little sad but ohh well. We move on. We got another Japanesse dude working out of the bullpen which should be nice. It seems like we have done some good work shoring up the bullpen.
In sad news Trot Nixon was not re-signed by the club. Bummer.
Manny is starting the season off by providing some drama. Nice. Well at least he'll report to camp on the absolute last minute possible. Nice.
Papi has a new little puppy that seems to be every where. I'm not sure why such a big man has such a little dog. Seems odd. Maybe he has been chatting with Paris Hilton a few too many times.
First spring game is on Wednesday. Nice.
I better sign up for Extra Innings soon.
I have a nice feeling about this season.
