Jose Iglesias Scores his First MLB Run…

It’s the eleventh inning, and Joe West is still a jackass.

Ok, so that has little to do with anything, but this guy needs to go.  He’s a blight on the game.  In the recent Twins-Sox series, both Ron Gardenhire and Terry Francona were ejected.  I know we all like to complain about the ump, but Joe West is a joke.  And a lousy official to boot.

Back to the point.  Carl Crawford is hitting .361 in May and had his second walkoff hit of the year on Monday.  He scored Jose Iglesias from first- it was the 21 year old’s first major league run.  This is big news.

At least Ellsbury is hitting the ball on the screws.  I’m not sure why he’s my favorite player in baseball, but I’m ready for him to get back to leadoff success.

Dice-K today makes me nervous, and we get King Felix on Sunday…I’m still calling for a sweep.  It has to be.
