our golden boy

I don't know about you, but I think it's high time our first baseman, Kevin Youkilis, gets recognized for something other than his amazing ability to get on base and hit for power. Sure, he's up there right at the top ranking in terms of extra-base hits, OBP, SLG, and OPS for all 1st baseman, but it's about time he should get recognized for his glovework. Ladies and gentlemen, Kevin Youkilis has not made an error at first base since July 21, 2006. Lemme say that again, JULY 21, 2006! That is freakin' unreal. If there isn't at least SOME talk of Youk for the Gold Glove Award by the All-Star Break, I will be sending some angry emails. Yeh yeh, I know that first base is on the wrong end of the defensive ability specturm, but still. If voters look towards those players who are also well rounded, then look no further than Youk.


Tonight Youkilis continued his 18-game hit streak, as well, hitting .443 in that span. And yeh, he didn't make an error.

Sox up 11.5 games on the Yanks after tonight's win. Thank you, L.A.!

And it seems Bonds has cooled off quite considerably from his blistering pace early in the season. The Bonds HR Pool Countdown could get interesting in the coming months...

I'm wanting one of you to chime in on the Sox/Yanks matchup. Especially on Clemens hurting his groin.... hahahahaha

Are you looking for sports? Or maybe just the Red Sox? That team that is in the American League East? That same team that is the rival of the New York Yankees? Maybe you are looking for sports on the rox? Or is it Sports on the Rocks? You may be looking for Sports Drinks. Henry and Trevor read the Boston GlobeBoston Globe. They also read ESPN. If you are also looking for Mississippi State University sports, then you are in the right place too. Dirt Dawgs? Diamond Dawgs? Dawgs in general? You can Google the hell out of this site if you want.
