Going to Boston

Wednesday, May 19, 2004

After watching last night's game, I had a sneezing attack and will be going on the five day disabled list. Like my good friend Sammy, I will be skipping out on what I normally do for a few days, only to return and struggle mightily. Anyhow, I am going to Boston for a few days and will probably miss all of the Cubs games in the mean time. It will take a while to catchup, but rest assured I will be back with a vengeance when I do return. (I will also be saving any corks I may run across while in Boston.)

Last night was nearly one of the greatest nights in baseball, except Michael Barrett managed a hit, Moises Alou, a walk, and Matt Clement reached on a dropped third wild pitched strike. While Jason Schmidt only faced 30 batters, retiring 27 of them, and notching a one hitter, Randy Johnson was turning Sports Center into the Randy Johnson highlight reel. Johnson pitched a perfect game against the Braves, which was exciting for all baseball fans. The Turner field fans were standing the entire ninth inning rooting against their team in a 2-0 game. Thats OK I guess, even the best teams lose 60+ games a year, but how many perfect games do you get to witness?

Matt Clement shouldn't be neglected however. He pitched eight innings, allowed only one run, and still took the loss. Tough Luck loser. Anyhow, I feel another sneeze coming on, so I better run before I rupture another ligament.
