9/27: A Byrd in the hand

GAME NOTES: Whatever.

GAME NOTES: Whatever.

Categories: Andy Pettitte Game Threads New York Yankees Paul Byrd

Born on the 37th anniversary of the the day Babe Ruth died (1985) which later became the day Jimy Williams was fired in 2001 (a monumental event at the time), Evan was too young to experience the pain 1986 brought, but a deep wound was sowed in 2003. Since then, Fire Brand has become a blog that Red Sox “club officials read,” as per Peter Gammons. Evan enjoys working out, writing, reading, quality television, science fiction and history and being newly married. He is a professional baseball journalist as well as president of a state non-profit and member of the Board of Directors for a national profit. (Twitter.)

    I had a dream last night that the Red Sox won today's game, 5-0. By the end of this one, I'm pretty sure I'll have proved that I'm not clairvoyant.

    I don't know who's a more overrated underperforming loser, Mike Lowell or Tom Brady. Great DP, Mike.

    What do we do, laugh? Are we still going to make the playoffs, and does it matter?
    This offense is pathetic.

    Hey Evan you're gonna have to do something about this FAIAZ person. Can you find a way to block him or something.

    Keep raining, I’d rather lose a game by forfeit than having to watch these assholes play the Yankees.

    Thing is, though, that Reddick, Anderson, Byrd, Jones… you won't be seeing these people in the playoffs for Boston. It doesn't seem like the players nor the organization particularly took this three-game series seriously.

    How about we get into the playoffs first before we act like we're there?
