What is going on in the world of baseball?
It’s craziness – the starting pitchers are struggling everywhere.

Oh, and note to whomever sent Dustin Pedroia death threats (can you imagine?!?) regarding his comments about his hometown – everyone loves their home town, good bad or otherwise. I lovingly refer to my hometown as “the ghetto”. It’s a joke and those of us who are from there all laugh and nod because well – it’s not the town we remember it being. That doesn’t mean it’s really a ghetto – nor would it be the end of the world if it really was. So, one – get over yourself, and two – the mere fact that you would do such a stupid and foolish thing only lends credibility and brings that kind of a statement to life. I’ve got one word for you – and it’s Denis Leary’s favorite, begins with an A and ends with a hole. You figure it out….

The sun is shining, it’s beautiful out – the forecast for the weekend is supposed to be fabulous – and I've got dinner plans on Friday that I'm looking forward to (and will elaborate on later in the week) and so while I feel lousy, I’m still in a great mood.
Now, if some of my happy vibes can rub off onto the pitching staff and so we can pull out a win….
