Random tidbits on another baseball Opening Day …
It wasn’t a much better day for starter Derek Lowe, who was roughed up by the Braves to the tune of eight runs over five innings of work. And that was just the beginning. Details of the former Sox’s hero’s divorce were made public yesterday in depositions, public record in the state of Florida at RonFineman.com, the subscription-only site that last year broke the news of the pitcher’s affair with Fox Sports’ Dodgers reporter Carolyn Hughes.
Well, JoJo the dancing bear could have predicted the Thomas stuff at least, so let’s not get carried away.
Assemblyman Ivan Lafayette (D-Queens) said yesterday that he won’t stand pat until bans all New York vanity license plates from bearing the Red Sox team logo.
“If I showed up in Boston with Massachusetts plates that said ‘Yankees,’ I’d have to run for my life,” Lafayette told the New York Daily News.
Not to worry, the Lowell Spinners won’t take this sitting down. Retaliation is imminent.
Alou is right. I mean, who am I to judge, especially after that time as a kid I broke a neighbor’s window, only to be persecuted by the local PTA. How much different is that than juicing up your body, lying to a grand jury about it, assaulting the game’s most storied record by cheating, money laundering, tax evasion, and just being a regular SOB to everyone that comes within your path? No difference.
Um, no you can’t. And please, get some new material. Millar’s schtick worked for the most part in Boston because his teammates backed him up. When the Orioles are 20 games out on June 15, I wonder though how cute Orioles fans are going to find his “Hee-Ya” and “Cowboy Up.”
OK, they did have Rafael Palmeiro last year, so I’d guess probably pretty cute.
