Steve: Hello friends, I haven’t checked in for a while but are any of you Damon lovers troubled by the fact that he’s gone from hero to zero in about 10 seconds? His .009 batting average is not going to help the Red Sox dispatch the Yankees and it will also make it difficult for him to get that Pert plus endorsement even though Piazza is kind of washed up. In no way am I trying to say “I told you so” because I never did and am frankly upset at his poor performance but I would say at least 75% of the Red Sox problems start with Mr. Lovelylocks. What say you who have been lining up to get his autograph on your boobs all season? And I don’t just mean Stacey!
ps Levi is excused from replying because he has bigger fish to fry right now. I bet his sinker is almost ready and he’s warming up to take on Beltran.
Levi: You’re right about Damon, sad to say, but he did score the winning run last night.
Oh, and I owe you whatever it is I owe you, as Mr. Bonds did not hit .400. Aargh.
thatbob: My adulation of Damon has almost nothing to do with him being a baseball player, so likewise has almost nothing to do with his slump. I mean, I feel bad for him professionally, and if we were on speaking terms I might even suggest a shave and a haircut to, you know, try and change his luck. But I would still want him to grow it all out again in the post-season.
Has any writing on this blog suggested that (we) like him because he’s any good?
stacey: yeah, i’d have to say i’m with bob on this one. my all-cute team has absolutely nothing to do with baseball talent. although johnny’s slump is really heart-rending.
Toby: Darn! I knew there was something I forgot the last time I saw Levi. I meant to get his autograph on my boobs.
thatbob: sure hope this link works:
Luke, hanger-on: J Damon homered to right, K Millar, B Mueller and O Cabrera scored.
How ’bout them apples?!?
Luke, hanger-on: J Damon homered to right, O Cabrera scored.
And them apples!
I’m never cutting my hair again.
thatbob: Luke (and everyone not watching from the Rocketship) sorry you missed the discussion we had (initiated by Matthew or Ross?) about JD hitting for the SuperCycle. You know: a 4 run homer, a 3 run homer, a 2 run homer, and a solo shot. It looked like he was working towards it with 2 men on for a couple of at-bats, but alas. Well, maybe we’ll get to see it in The Series.
