It’s In the Bag

The Red Sox scored a whopping 14 runs, hopefully not with the aid of banned substances. It would be tempting for the players to resort to artificial means given this season’s woes, but Don and Jerry would be the first to tell them that quick way isn’t the best way.

It’s been so long since the Red Sox were on the giving end of a laugher that NESN audiences haven’t enjoyed Remy and Orsillo’s silly side. For every run Boston batters tallied there were at least five items in Don’s man bag. Contents include:

  • Binoculars
  • Emergency first aid kit
  • Beef jerky
  • Umbrella
  • Pen bag: pens, eye black, backup contact lenses
  • Medicine: pills for all ailments
  • CSI flashlight
  • Bag of candy
  • Hairbrush
  • Halls throat lozenges
  • Baseball
  • Umpire manual
  • MLB rulebook
  • Toiletries: hairspray, lotion
  • Stain remover
  • Fan mail
  • Scorecards (used)
  • Nasal spray
  • Asthma medication
  • Camera
  • Chargers
  • Phiten bracelet
  • Bigelow green tea (Terry Francona’s favorite tea)

But there’s something Orsillo should look into adding to his stash.
