Game 58: June 7, 2005
Red Sox (31-27), 2
Cardinals (38-20), 9
L: Matt Clement (6-1)
W: Jeff Suppan (5-5)

Matty Mo>Em Clem, at least last night. Another brutal game. The redbirds might be the hottest team in baseball right now. They are so hot, they are too sexy for the game, with Al Reyes and Tony La Russa both getting ejected in the 8th. Matt Mantei and Terry Francona were also scorching, getting kicked out in the 7th.

The Boston club couldn’t even manage more than 2 earned runs against Jeff “Soup’s On!” Suppan, although they did scrape up 6 hits. They were the untimely kind, however, and the 3 double plays (2 for Edgar Renteria and 1 for Manny Ramirez) were not helping the situation. I come not to bury Edgar, but to praise him, for he is not as brittle as Nomar Garciaparra nor as free-swinging as Orlando Cabrera. I beg a hair of the pre-wrist injury Garciaparra for memory, and dying, mention it within my will.

Switching between the plunkathon and Queer Eye for the Straight Guy: We’re Professional Ballplayers and We are Doing this for Charity... Seriously!” edition was sensory overload for me. Fortunately, I have a digital video recorder and I will closely watch the Fab Five at a later date (as if they won’t show it over and over again). Until then, enjoy twitch’s insightful commentary. It makes me want to buy an EyeTV unit, too.

Not much more to say here except permit not those whom you would sweep to sweep against you.
