Bloody Sox Laundry, 9/18 - Umps Bumped, Players Pumped

Not the best way to wrap up a series, but you can't win them all. Cool pregame ceremony yesterday too - the Sox have done a lot of good things for the men and women who serve this great country.

Youk's back today, and the hazing starts this road trip. I'm hearing Wizard of Oz, with some random extras. Hopefully none of the rookies follow the umps' lead:

Umps file complaint after being "verbally abused" by Angels coaches Wednesday night - Boston Herald

Big Moment For Lowrie -- Hartford Courant

I had to. 2009 Player Awards

Hobbled Green stands and delivers - Boston Herald

Red Sox Could Reenter the Mix for Felix Hernandez this Offseason - NESN

I'm going to make a bold prediction - it doesn't happen. No particular reason.


BtB Power Rankings: Through Wednesday, September 16th, 2009 - Beyond the Box Score

BtB Power Rankings, now with catcher fielding included! The Red Sox finally edge out the Rays on paper. And yet Tek has been horrible for two straight games. I hate deviations.

Tell me why I'm wrong about Felix, or just drop some links and comment on the day's events. Also, expect trolls.
