One week from right now I will be running through the Newark airport trying to catch my connecting flight to Dallas, TX with the hopes of arriving with time to go to the hotel, check in, change, chug a White Russian (or 8) and be on my way to the Ballpark at Arlington for my first in person Boston Red Sox Experience of the season. One week and one day from now, I hope to be lying by the hotel pool with a giant hangover talking about how great it was hanging out with David Ortiz after the game. Also, I bought two Mega Millions tickets today, so when I win my 80 million dollars tonight, all of my loyal blog readers can come to Texas with me. (I already paid for my room at the Holiday Inn Express and millionaires don't stay there).

*From http://www.bostonsportsmedia.com/. "FSN announced today that they has signed Jonathan Papelbon to be Mohegan Sun Sports Tonight's weekly featured baseball interview for the 2007 season. Papelbon follows in the shoes of Kevin Millar (2004 & 2005) and Coco Crisp (2006) as the weekly player guest." That sounds like it will be a good time. Also, if anyone saw the back of the Herald today Jonathan looked VERY handsome.


*Gordon Edes has observations from Theo. ^
*Jeff Horrigan has Jonathan Papelbon's ankle fine after rolling it yesterday in an exhibition game and giving New England a panic attack. (oh, that was just me? never mind)
*Boston.com has a giant section today on Japanese baseball today if you're interested. Just go to www.boston.com. Too much to link to.
*Tony Mazz has a giant section on the Sox payroll. Some thoughts:
J.D. Drew makes a million more than Papi = bullshit.
Josh Beckett best earn his 10 million this year.
9 million for Lugo, ugh. I'm going to miss Alex, I know it already.
Only 8 Red Sox make more than Matt Clement. I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.
Is there a bigger bargin in baseball than Papelbon for 475,000? Prob. not.
*Alright, that is all for now, I'll check back in later if anything exciting happens.
