Oh, the chants the Fenway Faithful could have launched while he was on the mound. To the always effective “Rogahhhh, Rogahhhh” and “Toriiiiii, Toriiiii” (well, maybe that Torii chant didn’t work out to well) and “Steroids, Steroids” for our friend Jason Giambi and other juicers, the “Wife Beat-er” chant could have been epic.
For those not familiar, back in 2006 when the Phillies were in town for an inter-league series against the Sox, Myers was arrested for hitting his wife in downtown Boston.
We, here in Boston, don’t take to kindly to big, tough athletes beating up their wives or girlfriends. Just ask this guy:
I was glad to see the Rays
beat defeat Myers last night, to even the World Series at 1-1. I’m not sure if I posted my prediction here, but I am taking the Rays in 6. I see Tampa getting to the elderly Jamie Moyer on Saturday, with the only other game they will drop is Game 5 against Cole Hamels.
In some Red Sox news, the team is bringing back the entire coaching staff with the exception of Luis Alicea. Alicea was the first base / infield coach for the past couple of season. Apparently there was a “philosophical” disagreement between him and manager, Terry Francona that has led to this departure. No word on who will replace him.
