    Thunder, this is the God's truth, the first Red Sox game I ever went to at Fenway, in 1974, Dick Pole was the winning pitcher.

    Wow, that's impressive. I couldn't tell you who pitched the first game I went to.

    Neither can I, but then, I was four. I can tell you the pitcher of the first game I remember, in 2002 (the game that my dad took me to that got me into baseball and the Red Sox). Pedro started for the Sox, Wells for the Yankees, and Shea Hillenbrand hit a HR off of Mariano Rivera.

    - From the 2004 ALCS Game 4 Gamethread. A reminder that no game is over until the final out is recorded, and things will always get better. Misspellings unchanged as a reminder that Yankees fans are just terrible.

    There were some judgement calls in that list. Fortunately, some of the good names had several uni numbers. I don't know what it is about Stan Papi. Just rolls off the tongue better than Rothrock.

    Jim Lonborg started the first game that I attended. They called him Gentleman Jim but he was a bad ass.
    "Hating the Yankees like it's a religion since 94'" RIP Mike.


    "It's also a simple and indisputable fact that WAR isn't the be-all end-all in valuations, especially in real life. Wanna know why? Because an ace in run-prevention for 120 innings means more often than not, a sub-standard pitcher covering for the rest of the IP that pitcher fails to provide. You can't see value in a vacuum when a player does not provide full-time production."

    My first game was started by Oil Can Boyd. He was a bad ass who was probably the exact opposite of Lonborg.

    The Can was must see.

    I am surprised that his life has not ended in tragedy. He seemed to be a strong candidate for that to happen to him.

    Boyd told of his start on May 11, 1986, at Oakland when he smoked crack before taking the mound.

    "I get to the ballpark, all the ballplayers are on the field, you know, taking batting practice and everythin'. And I walk in the clubhouse and I -- I got my pipe with me.

    "I can remember going and locking myself up in the bathroom and smoking some dope right there at the ballpark. I was afraid that they knew and that the clubhouse manager had smelled it, he was gonna tell on me. So I gotta get rid of it.

    "I had it under the bib of my cap, inside the crease inside of the cap. And when I was warming up in the ballgame -- third, fourth inning -- it fell off my head."


    Boyd's violent delivery often led to his cap falling off.

    "Every other pitch I pick it up, put it on. So it's one time, you know, I'm so into what I'm doing, I forgot that the dope is under my hat. So I look on the ground and I'm like, 'Damn, there's little rocks everywhere, man.' So I play it off as I'm walking back, I pick it up like -- dirt -- picking up (expletive), mashing it into the ground."
