Home where my music’s playing - GameThread Sept 5 - Red Sox @ Blue Jays

After that weekend, I imagine the Jays are very happy to be home, so figured a line from Paul Simon's Homeward Bound would work.

It is so good to see Dustin McGowan back. If he pitch the way he once did, he would really be a great addition to the starting rotation. Also nice to see John Farrell back,

I might miss the start of the game today, my oldest boy bought himself some golf clubs and wants to go hit a bucket of balls. A few years back, I golfed quite a bit, but my friend and I took a long weekend golf trip, playing 2 rounds a day for the weekend and we cured ourselves. Yesterday, looking at clubs, I started to think I might like to try it again. So we'll hit some balls today and see how it goes and maybe, later in the week, I'll play a round.

I have come to think of like this:

Golf is a lot of walking, broken up by disappointment and bad arithmetic.

Or

If you want to take long walks, take long walks. If you want to hit things with sticks, hit things with sticks. But there's no excuse for combining the two and putting the results on TV. Golf is not so much a sport as an insult to lawns.

But we'll see, maybe it will be fun.

Anyway, lineups after the jump.
