and there's no doubt that they'll make a huge run at c.c. sabathia in the offseason... 'cause honestly, what could go wrong with a pitcher who's 50+ pounds over-weight?
Completely agree. What a fucking nightmare.

Since we're all watching the New Orleans-San Antonio deathmatch, everyone feel free to ignore the Red Sox-Royals game currently going on.

I had no idea about the no-hitter being in progress and happened to flip to ESPN to see the Cubs score, but they had cut into the Sox game and I got there just as he threw the last pitch of the game. Timing is everything. 4 no hitters for the Sox in the past few years. Congrats to Lester, great story.

For those keeping score at home:

Jon Lester/Clay Buchholz: 2
Phil Hughes/Ian Kennedy: 0

Lester.

Nice moment there between him and Francona, too.

A no-hitter is a beautiful thing.

4 no hitters for Varitek, I'm thinking that might be a record? I was actually watching the House season finale and turned on XM after House to see how the Sox were doing. Being the Sox I figured if I tuned in 3 hours after first pitch I could catch the last 2 innings Well I see the ticker, and the first thing I see is:

KC 0 @ Bos 7

And I'm like "yes!" Then I look down to:

FNL NO HITTER

And start dancing around like a fool. Nice job by Lester.

Yeah, Varitek's 4 caught no-no's are the all-time baseball record.

As confirmed by the cocksuckers on Sportscenter.

Yeah, so a couple of weeks ago the sales rep from one of my suppliers comes in the office...they have lots of nice Sox tix, including front row seats in the newer "dugout seat" area by first base and as of last year State Street pavilion seats and some other good box seats...so he says he has seats available for the 19th, do I want them? I say sure...he says its not the front row, its the pavilion...so I say sure...so the next day he calls and says oops, I had the wrong date its the 21st...so yeah I have a pair of nice State Street pavilon tix for tomorrow night to see Bartlolo Colon...but if he was right about the date, I'd have witnessed a no-no.
