Closing Day! And nice run,!

Thought actually making a comment on here would be a nice bookend to the 2013 season!

What an unbelievable run. And I was lucky enough to attend a game this year; Game 2.

Game 2 Panoramic

Glad to see the faithful keeping this place chugging along!  Cue the Duck Boats!

  1. Thanx for providing the house, P.

    Well hello Fans. To keep pace during the Hot Stove Season, I ve decided to provide little puzzles like you might see in any newspaper- with the answers given a day or so later. Lets get started w a real easy one:

    In the field of Symbology , what does the sign ’87 2′ mean?

  2. Really wish I had way more time to stop, chat, and post. However, still as soon as Koji struck out Carpentar I thought must be going crazy. Hope you all enjoyed the season. Funny I keep telling myself I have lived to see 3 Sox World Series and not sure I totally 100% believe it.

  3. Hello Fans-

    Welcome to another issue of the Daily Puzzle:
    Unscramble these letters and form a word:

    Answer to previous puzzle:
    87 2 refers to a Sox yukkies game many yrs ago during the summer. Frank Castille was mowing down yukkie hitters when Jimi “Captain Hook” Wiliams yanked him after only 87 pitches, having allowed just 2 hits. The bullpen faltered and the Sox went on to lose.

    After he game one Sox player said disgustedly, ” Those guys were as happy as pigs in sht when we took out Frankie.”

  4. Good work, DU. and it doesn’t surprise me that you figured it out.

    another daily puzzle soon.

    meanwhile Cafardo says that the Angels are in need of a third baseman and a pitcher, and speculates that Will Middlebrooks and Felix Doubront could be the chips that it would take to get a deal for Trumbo done.

    I wouldn’t make this trade. I still think the upside of TWO young players, esp Doubront, is potentially startling.

    1. Hi Folks,

      Happy New Year. What do we hope for this year? A non-painful but long-lasting injury to Mr Jacoby would be quite nice, I suppose.

      I also have an important announcement: I am now the New Portlandsoxfan. That’s because I have recently moved, and from my living room window I can see just see Portland (UK version). It features the unique Chesil Beach. Come and have a look some time.

      All the best, and let’s hope for a peaceful 2014.

  7. From Dreamland?

    In history I think the following may have happened before. It would be incredible, but with some luck- doable. Consider the isuk hostage, John Cantley, who just released a short speech on an isuk released video.
    Now all you need is this- that he somehow talked isuk into writing his short talk, just made public. Now if it were me, and I could gain that small? concession…I would have written the message in code, gambling that the CIAs cryptographers were busy w their machines.

    First thought obviously might be something simple like the 1st letter of every word is say, 3 letters less than the target letter he wanted to convey- but of course it would be more sophisticated. Now how many ‘hit’ letters do you need? Surprisingly just a few, and these letters, even if scrambled would name the city/area etc where he was held.
    Recall Blenchly sp Park during WW2- if cryptographers that long ago could decode German msgs, then this would be a piece of cake. Again- all that’s necessary is for Cantley to somehow talk isuk into letting him write the few sentences.

    Furthermore, its not that far fetched. Isuk could very easily have been sloppy and simply told him,” Tell the Americans this is the last video etc etc,” leaving Cantley to express the msg in his own words.

    Go ahead and laugh- Ive got my Hockie Helmutt on.

  9. Hello sox fans, I have to drop by and give y’all a tip of the cap and congratulate you on your team. It’s been a good season and y’all came out on top. I’d be lying if I said I wanted your team to win, but I felt I owed you guys this much.
