Here is a letter from the Presidential Candidate:
Dear Friends and Citizens of Red Sox Nation,
Rob Crawford here. How are you? I'm writing with a sense of urgency, as I am one of 25 finalists in the race for President of Red Sox Nation (no really, I'm serious), and I really, really need your support if I'm going to make it to the final 10 candidates after online voting from August 30 to September 9, at www.redsoxnation.com/president.
I wrote and recorded a smash hit Red Sox song entitled, "I'm A Member of Red Sox Nation," and it was played over the Fenway Park loudspeakers during the fifth inning of the July 18th game vs. the Royals, the same day I performed the song live on the Red Sox pre-game show on New England Sports Network (NESN). To hear this Grammy-worthy song, or to download it directly to your iTunes for free, go to my blog at http://www.crawdaddycove.com/. Also at my blog, you'll also get to read my presidential platform, as well as stories of some of my best baseball memories (goosebumps guaranteed).
Pretty exciting, isn't it? There are many ways you can help:
1) Between August 30 and September 9, vote for Rob Crawford up to ten times (per email address) at www.redsoxnation.com/president.
2) Email all your friends, family, and co-workers - tell them about the song at http://www.crawdaddycove.com/, tell them about the online voting from August 30 to September 9, and tell them what a spectacular Red Sox Nation president Rob Crawford would be. Use any networking sites of which you're a part, as well. And once you have downloaded the song, you can email that to people, as well.
3) Do you have any connections at local radio stations? Urge them to play my song! Do you have any connections at newspapers, TV stations, or other media outlets? Think creatively about how you can use these to promote my candidacy.
4) When you go to Red Sox games the next few weeks, bring a sign in support of "Rob Crawford for President" and hold it proudly above your head. The Red Sox and NESN want to promote this campaign big-time - they'll be looking for signs to show on TV.
5) Think of other original ways that YOU can spread the word about my
candidacy and my song - then go for it!
Thanks a lot - this should be a fun ride - drop me a line and tell me your campaigning stories!

It's too bad this cartoon could not be a reality. The despicable acts perpetrated upon canines by Vick and His Posse should bring down heavy fines and huge jail time!

The 2007 Boston Padres have clinched the Park League Championship. This is a dream come true for Ed Neal. It is gratifying after many years that ED becomes the MAN in the Park League. Neal and his Championship Team have their roots in the Yawkey/Junior Park League. His team was the last one to accept an offer to move to the Park League once it won a YBL Championship.
Maybe - Ed and the Padres will "come home", now that HIS Dream has been completed.
You never know!!!!!
Congratulations old friend. Barbara is smiling tonight!
Congratulations to The Padres the 2007 Boston Park League Champions!!! The Padres beat Stockyard 6-3 in Game 7 of the finals on Tuesday August 21st at Fallon Field in Roslindale.
The Padres won their last 11 games of the regular season to qualify for the last playoff spot. They then went on to beat top seeded Palmer Club (the regular season champions and winners of 4 titles in the last 5 years) in 5 games. Padres were down 3 games to 2 in the final series against Stockyard, but battled back to win the last 2 games to win their first title ever after more than 20 years in the league.
Kudos to Manager Ed Neal and the players of the Padres whose performance was outstanding.
Some stats from game 7...Padres got 12 hits, 3 each by Darwin Mesa & Manny Sota. Mesa scored 2 runds as Sota drove in 3, including a key triple in the 5th inning to score 2 runs. Jose Beltre limited the Stockyard to 2 hits, but was in constant trouble walking 11 batters. Beltre Struck out the 5 for the Padres.
Once again, Congratulations to The Padres for winning the championship, and also to Stockyard for such a terrific series.

This just in....off the wires. It is not DesRoches pitching and bat. It is not the solid pitching staff of Rogers, Szathmary, Morse and Bates. It is not the brilliant management of Mike Powers. The 9 time Yawkey League Champions have a "secret weapon" -- Rob McDonough.
In this revealing picture provided by Rigazzio Press of East Dalton, MA, McDonough shows how he uses his "many talents" to persuade the UMPS to make things "go Alibrandis' way".
Question here is: "Rob was this picture taken before or after?". More film at 11PM.
