Extra Bases

Then there was the time …

Never have been much of a morning person, which is a function of my job. But some things you can’t help but notice no matter how tired you are.

Such as Jonathan Papelbon walking into the clubhouse at 8:44 a.m. wearing wraparound black sunglasses with a three-legged bulldog on a leash. Now that got everybody’s attention.

Boss is the dog that supposedly ate the 2007 World Series ball. Papelbon went back to his truck to get the dog’s bed, so apparently Boss is here for the day. What are the odds that he bites Matsuzaka on the leg and Dice-K misses another month? It’s 50-50 at worst.
