Thirsty Thursday

Yup, so the playoffs have started. That's fun. Yankees won. No shock there. Nor is it shocking that the Phillies won. I'm a bit surprised, however, that the Dodgers won. They've been scuffling a bit since the break and it took them a while to clinch that division. I thought St. Louis would snatch game 1. Guess not.

I was going to do a Red Sox/Angels preview, but EP accomplished that already. I pointed out where I disagree with his assessment though. I think regualr season records are irrelevent. Last year, the angels took 8 games out of 9 versus the Red Sox in the regular season, and still failed to win their playoff matchups, so going 5-4 against the Red Sox this year is a non-factor. This series will be all about pitching. Game 1 & 2 both feature good, even pitching matchups. The Red Sox send John Lester & Josh Beckett to the hill to face the Angels' John Lackey & Jered Weaver, respectively. Notorious for his Fenway struggles, Lackey must be doing backflips knowing that he will not pitch there in this series. Beckett has had back issues down the stretch and there are questions whether he can be the dominate pitcher that we have seen in postseasons past. In all honesty, I think this series returns to Boston tied at 1. Game 3's matchup is still undecided. Scott Kazmir will start for the Angels and Clay Buchholz is currently slated for the Sox, although they could go with Daisuke Matsuzaka. Scott Kazmir had struggles at Fenway early in his career, but he was 2-0 there this year, amd over the last 4 seasons, he has gone 4-3 with a 3.18 ERA, 52 Ks and 23 BB. Clay Buchholz was solid down the stretch until his last 2 starts, especially the final start of the season where he surrendered 5 HRs. Dice-K has pitched well since returning from the disabled list, but he is unpredictable and does not go deep into games. Either way, game 3's pitching matchup favors the Angels. The teams will likely split in Boston as well, sending the series back to anaheim for a decisive game 5. given the Sox road struggles this season, if they don't win it at Fenway, they don't win this series. bottom line, I think Angels in 5.

In non-sports related comments, I've been up late the last 3 nights for work and I've had a chance to peep game on the late night NBC talk shows. I've never been a huge Conan fan, so his move to the tonight show is not great to me. He does basically the same stuff he did on his show, which I really should have expected. So basically they moved the conan O'Brien show up an hour. Next up is Jimmy Fallon, and he is still awful. He's not funny, his delivery is painfully terrible, and he laughs at his own jokes. Not a good combination for a comedian. I don't know how this guy is still employed. Lastly is Last Call with Carson Daly. Carson amuses me because he tries painfully hard to be cool, and it is just so obvious that he is efforting. Overall the show is at least watchable.

In my first post, I did some requests and dedications, Casey Kasem style. In that spirit, I'd like to send a trifecta of songs out to our man Jug. Thos songs would be "Tuesday's Gone" by Lynyrd Skynyrd, "Train" by Three Doors Down, and "Night Train" by Guns 'n' Roses. Hope you're feeling better big guy.

I don't have much else to say today. I won't review an album since everyone bitched last week.

Read, react. Have fun. Out.

Keep looking big you'll find your posting hook eventually. In the meantime you can be pissed at tem for taking 2 of them (vanity license plates and movie reviews).

is toleration a word? I just used it in a sentence and it didn't sound right

Beth said...

It should be.

Just like I have a friend who made up and uses the word procrastefficiency for when procrastinating is efficient.

Jugdish said...

tol⋅er⋅a⋅tion  /ˌtɒləˈreɪʃən/

El Padrino said...

Singer R. Kelly Admits He’s Illiterate

R. Kelly has been harboring a secret all these years — he’s illiterate.

The Ignition hitmaker says that despite his musical talents, he can’t read and barely made it through grade school.

“When I was trying to make it out here, I already knew, and I was stubborn about it,” he said. “I don’t even read really and I’m not afraid to say that. My cousins and brothers used to tease me ‘you can’t even read right. How you think you’re going to come up?’

“The only reason I graduated from grammar school is because I had a great jump shot. I went to high school and [my teacher] told me ‘you will one of the greatest writers of all time.’ I believed. You [have to] believe it. You can’t believe [anything] if you’re hating. You can’t achieve [anything] if you’re hating.”

Isiah Thompson said...

Though he hasn't publicly said anything to suggest that he'd like a change of scenery, current Browns backup quarterback Brady Quinn showed up at practice Wednesday wearing a pair of Edwards' cleats.

''They're Braylon's,'' Quinn said, according to Marla Ridenour of the Akron Beacon Journal. ''Yeah, in honor of Braylon."

Meiz said...

Today feels like a walk around town with some cocktails and listen to some Mos Def day.

maybe he should have gotten a shower with braylon too
