What up K-Man?!

I see they finally fixed your email address, dude. I guess that is what happens when you STRIKE OUT 6 dudes from the current WORLD SERIES CHAMPS. That was totally awesome! I mean, it’s not like you were striking out just guys like Brian Anderson (well, okay, you got him and Uribe twice), but you whiffed Konerko in the second. You even struck out the side in the third. Holy punchados, Batman!

Grecian Formula is craziness in the hot corner. He saved your bacon in the first with that stop of Ozuna’s line shot. And how about that throw from the knees to nail the guy? You don’t see stuff like that in Pawtucket.

From what I saw on tv, the crowd went nuts with Big Papi’s return. Does he recognize you these days?

NEwayz, you are the nails. Vazquez went for the duration and only allowed three hits, but you guys were just better last night. Congrats on your first big league win. Still waiting on mine.

Cracker OUT.

Yo, Crack-pipe.

Yeah, Papi knows who I am. Well, at least I think he does. He knows I’m not the batboy, at least.

When I tried to call Lowell “Grecian Formula,” it didn’t go over very well. You pulled a fast one over on me, didn’t you?

Hope your shoulder is doing better. Thankfully, Pap’s injury isn’t a labrum tear or anything. A transient subluxation event in the setting of a fatigued shoulder? I guess you have to think of something technical-sounding because the media just isn’t satisfied with “dead arm” any more. Damn internets.

I did get quite a few Ks, but the defense behind me was incredible. Not only did I strike out Rhode Island’s own Paul Konerko (he actually gets some cheers because he’s from the area), but I got him to ground into a double play to end the fourth.

Then there was that crazy twin killing in the sixth. Crede lined out to Lowell and then fired to Youk to double off Iguchi. Did I ever need that with a runner on third because of my wild pitch.

I wish the fans would get off Coco’s case. The one run we scored last night was because of his single in the fourth. Trot looks like he’s getting things together at the plate. He just missed a home run on that double off the wall.

Okay, so I was a little worried with Timlin going two innings, especially when he faced Thome for the final out. But then again, he’s forgotten more about baseball than we know now. It’s just that he forgets it at inconvenient times.

Anyways, looking forward to going over my start with Coach Wallace later this morning. I’m beginning to feel like I’m part of the crew. Did you hear how Coach Mills called me “Gabby”? It’s not cool like “K-Man” (no one here seems to want to call me that), but it’s a start.
