I really hope the weather in Boston holds off on Friday. I'm ready for this series to start. It's going to be a great one.
- Beckett vs. Sabathia
- Schilling vs. Carmona
- Matsuzaka vs. Westbrook
- Well...game four is still a little up in the air....
You all likely know that new fan favorite, Jacoby Ellsbury played for the Famlouth Commodores* in the Cape League during the summer of 2004. (Have I mentioned they lost the 2004 Championship to my Y-D Red Sox, when my host-brother, Brett Harker, pitched?)
Well Jensen Lewis, a pitcher for the Indians, also played on the Falmouth team in 2004. It's a long shot, but Ellsbury could actually face Lewis in this series! How cool would that be? Below is a 2004 team photo of the Commodores...Ellsbury is in the third row from the bottom, 4th player from the left (basically in the middle of the picture) he looks so little! Jensen is in the third row from the bottom, 2nd player from the left**!!
An "inside source" mentions that Jensen was the PA announcer for the team that season, and didn't pitch. And how cool is this? He says Jacoby wore a Red Sox hat all summer - even though he had no idea he'd be drafted by the Sox! Love him.
