Last night’s studs:
1. MIKE LOWELL --The BoSox three-bagger continued his 2007 rebirth with five hits last night, including a three-run homer and five RBI. It was against shitty, shitty
2. CHIPPER JONES -- The All-American boy hit two bombs last night to break Dale Murphy’s all-time Atlanta Braves home run record. He also homered from both sides of the plate for the seventh time in his career. Who hits a home run from both sides of the plate? Crazy. It's like when you're playing softball with a bunch of chicks and they're terrible, but one ends up showing decent pop and drives a double into the corner (it should have been a triple but chicks suck at base running, even if they have decent pop).
ONE GUY WHOSE JOB IS LESS STABLE THAN A 15-YEAR-OLD WORKING AT BURGER KING WHO ALWAYS COMES IN HUNG OVER ON SUNDAYS:
J.P. RICCIARDI. At first glance, Ricciardi may look heroic for calling A.J. Burnett soft. But the reality is J.P knows his job’s slipping away and he’s lashing out at anyone he can find. Blaming the Jays’ struggles on Burnett’s lack of toughness? Come on, J.P. It’s your organization’s fault Burnett’s arm was handled worse than Blanket Jackson.
J.P. will be lucky if he's managing a chick softball team next year...
