Funny you should mention Emily Dickinson- you must find a way to see today's pregame show. I'll try to DVR it for you because Mike Timlin? Reciting an Emily Dickinson poem? While impersonating a cartoon deer?


obviously, i have thoughts about papelbon's recent troubles. thoughts that keep me up at night. no, i mean, thoughts when i'm on the t and doing other totally non-important stuff.

anyway, i actually think the problem is that he was, at one point, underworked. after the three consecutive saves in those weirdly close games against kansas city in the middle of july, he had three innings of work in two games spread out over three weeks. i'm a big fan of not using him as the one-size-fits-all-bandaid and wearing him out, but i think that after routinely working multiple games a week, he may have gotten out of the groove?

and i do think the varitek thing is huge. not just with paps, but with lester, delcarmen and hansen, too. anyway, i have to go lie down now, i'm having flashbacks to that time last week when delcarmen and javy lopez had to conference on the mound eight gajillion times in one inning, probably because they hadn't even been introduced yet.


Damn, that Brian kid sounds like one funny bastard.


yeah, i could've done without the frequent high-pitched renditions of "you make me feel like dancin'!" though. especially since i was squashed into the grandstand with no way to escape.
