After a long west coast roadtrip, the Boston Red Sox are back in town….and need to unwind. The Fenway neighborhood was alive again with excitement and a party atmosphere last night when Red Sox pitcher and Boston native Manny Delcarmen threw a bash to raise money for Boston Public Schools at his 3rd annual BOWLIN’ FOR STRIKES fundraiser.
A summertime funky bowling party presented by New England Sporting Goods Giant NEW BALANCE, and sponsored by WAAF (radio), NESN (tv), and JILLIAN’S – Boston brought-out many of the Sox team and their families. In attendance at Jillian’s were: Manny Delcarmen, John Lackey, Daniel Bard, Jeremy Hermida, Bill Hall, Mike Cameron, Clay Buchholz, Daniel Nava, Jonathan Papelbon, Josh Beckett, Jason Varitek, Mike Lowell, Tim Wakefield, Dustin Richardson, Scott Atchison, Adrian Beltre, and Angel Sanchez. (Quite an impressive showing!)
A fun and festive night was had by all who attended, and the money raised will be put to great use in the public schools of Boston. Thanks to all who donated their time, bid generously at the silent auction, bowlers, sponsors and spectators. (Special thanks to Sports Identity for their hard work putting this event together)

On a simply beautiful Sunday morning at Fenway Park, the Red Sox Foundation presented the very first annual RUN FOR HOME BASE 9K race May 23, 2010.
Last Night’s game at Fenway was a fairly short fight between NY and Boston. The Sox had it goin’ on since the very beginning. We scored first…and often. Nice Mother’s Day gift for me, and the many mom-sicles out at the game on such a chilly May night.
Boy wonder, Boston Red Sox resident preacher and bull pen ray of sunshine Justin Masterson has been traded to the Cleveland Indians on Friday July 31st.
Born in Jamaica, the tall farmboy with a rocket arm and a heart of gold did a post-trade interview with NESN Friday afternoon in Baltimore saying how sad he was to be leaving Boston and his team, but understanding that baseball is a business. He took some pride in the fact that he was traded for the likes of a player of Victor Martinez’s caliber. Masterson is known for his modesty, he has tremendous potential and is only beginning his illustrious career in the majors. I look forward to following his career as a baseball fan, and as a fan of Justin Masterson as an individual.
In my personal opinion, it was a mistake to trade our golden boy for a catcher we did not need. We had the need for pitching and shortstop players, not 1st base and catching. And the scouts for the Cleveland Indians are no dummies, they did not want Buchholz, who we tried to jam down their throats, they demanded more – they wanted Justin Masterson. Why didn’t you just say NO Theo?
