Finally, the LaRoche brothers will not be mistaken for the each other. No longer will people see the name A. LaRoche on the scoreboard and say, “Which one is that?” No longer will I see the name on my fantasy stat follower and also be confused. And basically, no longer will Pittsburgh be the owners of the two brothers that confuse the crap out of many baseball fans. Now here this… you can’t imagine how confusing it is to see the name A. LaRoche and have to wonder which one it is. It is extremely annoying. I’m not sure which guy it is.
Well, now the Bucs won’t have to worry about mistaking either of them for the other any more. The Bucs have traded ADAM LaRoche to the Boston Red Sox for a couple prospects. The addition of LaRoche is a good one, giving them another bat to add to their all ready powerful arsenal. But the question is this… How often will he be used. There is no where to put him. With Youkilis at first, and Lowell at third (for the time being), there is no where to put him so you would imagine he would get a spot start here and there. But maybe they got him because Lowell is going back to the DL. In this case LaRoche would get first base with Youk sliding over to third. Who knows? It’s still a good move regardless.
On to other news. What’s up with all those day games today. I went to the movies this afternoon with a few buds to catch the matinee of the new Transformers movie and I hung out at the mall next door to it all afternoon. When I got home and turned on ESPNews, I saw a bunch of replays from games that had already been played. I was thinking, “What’s up with that?” I was bummed but then again, the only game that would be on t.v. near me would be the Red Sox-Rangers game which is on later tonight. So that wasn’t that big a deal.
Also- THE YANKS ARE IN FIRST! I am pumped about this. The Yanks are on fire, the Red Sox have sucked so far this second half, and life is good as a Yankee fan.
Well, that’s all, not much happening today or yesterday.
P.S. I suggest everyone go see Transformers 2 because it was a great movie. Very intense. A lot of action. It was great. Shia LaBeouf- great job; Megan Fox- hot as ever; Optimus Prime- Very awesome.
