Watching “Walk Off Red Sox” yesterday got me jonesin’ for the real thing. It’s close, you can actually smell baseball out there. Seriously, it smells kinda like old leather and stale beer. Soon, the weather will be warmer and Hazel’s outfits will be tighter and skimpier.
There are not many questions left to be answered over the next six weeks. But one is huge: who will pitch the 9th in 2007? Personally, I’m not too keen on Joel Pineiro being able to step up. I’m going on record saying Hansen will be the surprise of ’07 taking over the closer role.
The position players and line-up is pretty much set, the rotation looks solid, and there is an abundance of decent arms in the pen. What are we waiting for?
