Not-So Phantom Power

I thought the band name “Phantom Power” might refer to Jacoby Ellsbury but it’s actually an audio engineering concept that is beyond my humble ken. This article by Eddie Ciletti explains phantom power for those who are curious.

There’s a “high energy contradance band” based on Boston called Phantom Power founded by Lissa Schneckenburger and Bruce Rosen, but this isn’t NESN’s house band. Another candidate is the indie band on MySpace that goes by the same name that counts Seo Taiji, David Bowie, and Green Day amongst their influences. It was founded in Vancouver, British Columbia and has a male lead singer so it is out of the running. I did find clips of Megan’s band on Tom Guilmette’s page, so click through and enjoy.

The reason we got to hear about the band was that Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy had to fill the airwaves with chatter because of blowout in the home team’s favor, something that hasn’t happened in all too long a time.

What I thought might be the storyline of the evening, the major league debuts of Lars Anderson and Robert Coello, turned out to be a disappointing footnote. Anderson went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts and Coello allowed three hits, three earned runs, and two walks in one-third of an inning pitched. The jokers of the clubhouse could have sent either of the greenhorns to go congratulate Adrian Beltre with a head-rubbing after his first-inning solo homer, but Mike Cameron and Victor Martinez delight in the prank so much they took it upon themselves to do so.

One rookie who has gotten used to the rigors of the big league is Ryan Kalish. The outfielder put the game out of reach in the fourth with the second grand slam of his MLB career. Two of his three home runs have come with the bases loaded; Lou Gehrig’s career mark of 23 is in peril given Kalish’s torrid pace.
