"Braveheart, my ass!"

Good news for Red Sox Nation - as I type this, Daisuke Matsuzaka has reached a preliminary pact to pitch for Boston for six years, the prime of his pitching career. After last year's semi-disappointing finish, I'm already geared up for '07. Just for the sake of comparision, here's maybe the highlight of the '06 season for me.

During a mid-August game against Detroit, NESN announcers Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy were joined for one inning by the stars of Rescue Me, Denis Leary and Lenny Clarke. This was right after Mel Gibson's arrest and drunken anti-Semetic ranting. So when Leary found out that Kevin Youkilis, first baseman, Greek God of Walks, was in fact Jewish, he had all the ingredients he needed, and he turned out a performance that had Orsillo and Remy gasping for air, they were laughing so hard. Even the fact that the Sox wound up losing couldn't wreck this game.
