How exciting was our bullpen last night? And Jacoby's steal (made all the much better after hearing his conversation with Royce Clayton!)

I'm tired. I'm really really really tired, so I haven't gotten around to pulling the Cape League stats for last night's game but it will be done today - promise!
In the meantime, enjoy this email I received about our favorite free-taco giving rookie outfielder, Jacoby Ellsbury:
We of Oregon State leave our beloved Jacoby in your trusted hands..
Love him, cheer for him, enjoy every moment you have with him in a Red
You are watching history.. The kid is going to the
Hall in Cooperstown..
One of my best friends from high school.. (Corvallis, OR, class of '71) was a student counselorat Madras, OR High School in 2000.. He found Jacoby during a Pony League game, and informed those whom he knew at Oregon State about the kid.. Coach Casey.. ( Winner now to back to back College World Series) came over while Jacoby was in HS, and offered him a full ride to be a Beaver...
The rest is history.. Now, it will be Red Sox History..
Have a great time at the World Series...I have never been to Boston, let alone Fenway.. A dream I must make come true in the near future..
I wish I was there to root Jacoby on... But we of the Pacific NW are glued to our TV's as we watch our man Ellsbury go..
