'cause no offense, but a solo home run isn't quite as exciting when it's preceded the day before by a grand salami. still, alex is starting to get into the groove of things and that makes me happy. salty also went 1 for 2 with a ribbie double (he also leads the rangers in ribbies as of right now with 5).
as for the sox, they had the day off yesterday and lost to puerto rico 9-5 today but ellsbury went 2 for 3 with a run. and poor zink. he gave up 4 runs on 2 hits in not even a third of an inning so his ERA is so bad it's a question mark. oh well.
and for the slightly geeky interlude, i now have a rocket named after me (see david's blog for details). it's pretty. it's long and skinny (unlike who it's named after...) and the tip is yellow that fades into red and there's a few detachable parts so it's like a transformer rocket in a very simplistic sense. i feel special. and i get to keep it either after it blows up, breaks or wins a few competitions so yay for that. stay tuned to either here or the amateur geek for pictures.
