Hey, Look Who Came to Dinner !!!

Tonite was an especially good evening of baseball...

  1. Manny is back.
Youk is back.

Curt pitched well, and got run support.

The Red Sox Won, and are now 3 games up on the Yankees.

Yanks lost in the 10th, spoiling their playoff celebration for another day.

Don't know if any of you noticed, I think in the 7th or 8th inning tonite. Lugo got to hit against his younger brother, Ruddy Lugo. Ruddy is about 5 years younger, and a relief pitcher for the A's.

Can you imagine? I am sure many times as kids, the two of them played lots of baseball together. I would bet they even talked about playing in the majors. Maybe even playing against each other. I am sure over the years, the two have shared a lot of good humored smack talk.

The sibling rivalry was pretty obvious. Julio Lugo was down in the count, and came back to draw a walk. As he started strolling down first base, his eyes pointed straight at the mound, and Julio was trying to hold back a wiry little smirk on his face. As if to say, "Hey man, you are still my little brother."
