Sunday Clutter

Hey folks, Welcome back. Could it possibly be any nicer outside today? We don't want to miss any of the sun, so let's grab an iced coffee and get right down to the business of clearing out the Clutter. Jon Lester looked great last night, giving up only 2 runs, 4 hits (including 2 solo home runs), and striking out 8 over 8 innings, as the Red Sox beat the Chicago White Sox 10-2. The White Sox batters looked baffled all night, and it was good to see the Red Sox offense roar back to life after sleeping for the... Read more →


Saturday Clutter

Hi everyone, Happy Saturday to you all, and it looks like it will be a nice Saturday, indeed. This might be a day that calls for a bike ride. Yeah, I'm pretty sure it is. Tell you what, if you spot me on my ride and tell me today's, "Song of the Day," I'll buy you a medium iced DD. Sound good? Of course, I'm going to need a cup of coffee before I even get on the bike, so let's take care of that first while we clear out some Clutter on this sunny day. Tim Wakefield pitched well...

Friday Clutter

Hi everyone, Happy Friday to you all. Congratulations to everyone for surviving another week! This calls for a nice iced coffee and a little randomness, don't you think? Let's jump in and see where the day takes us. Your guess is as good as mine. On paper, Josh Beckett vs. the Kansas City Royals would seem to strongly lean in the Red Sox favor. However, that's why they actually play the games instead of just running the stats through a computer. Beckett certainly seemed to be off to a good start yesterday, and then suddenly lost his bearings for a... Read more →


Thursday Clutter

Hi everyone, How are you? Come on in, I was just looking at cakes for Clutter's two-year birthday next week. Do you have any preferences? I asked BDH and Little Buddha which one they liked best, but they want all of them. How is it Thursday already? What's the plan for the weekend? Have a seat, have a seat. I'll grab the coffee, and then we can clear out a little Clutter. John Lackey gave up 11 hits and 4 runs in 5 2/3 innings last night, but that's fine, because the Red Sox offense pounded the Kansas City Royals... Read more →


Wednesday Clutter

Hi everyone, Welcome back to Clutter Headquarters, your home for all things random. Today is one of those days where the "real world" has me on a busy schedule, so I need to go. However, BDH and Little Buddha have your coffee ready and today's Clutter is ready to go. Stay as long as you like, and those two will lock up after you leave. Talk to you later! After sleeping Monday night, the Red Sox bats woke up to batter the Kansas City Royals pitchers, particularly Dustin Pedroia, who had two singles, a double and a triple, and Big... Read more →


Tuesday Clutter

Hi everyone, Happy Tuesday to you. Wait, it is Tuesday, right? It was another very late night at Fenway last night, which means once again, today's Clutter is being written on about four hours of sleep, so my apologies if the randomness seems even less focused than usual. It's clearly going to be a multi-coffee day, so help yourself to the first cup, and let's get to work. For the second time this year, I found myself leaving Fenway Park after 2:00 a.m. The good news was that I watched Jon Lester pitch like he hadn't spent any time on... Read more →


Monday Clutter

Hi everyone, A happy Monday to you all. How was your weekend? Did you remember your sunscreen? What's on the agenda for the week? BDH and Little Buddha want to hear everything. Thankfully, that nasty heat wave is finally behind us. Well, grab yourself an iced coffee, and let's kick off the new week with some randomness. Did I mention that Clutter's two year anniversary is right around the corner? That's so exciting. Okay, we'll get back to that later. Off we go... Congratulations to pitcher Tim Wakefield who recorded both his 199th win and 2000th career strikeout with the... Read more →


Sunday Clutter

Hi everyone, The heat wave has finally broken, with today's highs only supposed to be in the low 80's. That's much more manageable. This calls for some celebrating, so grab yourself a nice fresh iced coffee, and let's clear out some Clutter. I was out with some friends for the early part of the evening last night, and the Red Sox were kind enough to wait to score some runs until I got home, beating the Seattle Mariners 3-1. They were losing 1-0 within a minute of me turning on the television, but Jacoby Ellsbury came through with a two-run... Read more →


Amy Winehouse

To the surprise of no one, but to the sadness of many, troubled singer Amy Winehouse was found dead today in her London apartment. Winehouse, who was only 27 years old, had well-documented struggles with alcohol and drug addiction, and she apparently could not overcome her demons. The public response has been overwhelming, and it has the usual split of fans who are crushed that their favorite singer is gone, and those who always seem to be angry when they hear of an overdose, as if the deceased committed a transgression against them specifically. I never understand these people and... Read more →


Saturday Clutter

Hi everyone, Welcome back! It's great to have you with us. I hope everyone found a way to stay cool yesterday. Today's supposed to be much cooler, with a high that will only reach 96 degrees...sigh. Well, let's stock up on some iced coffee, turn the a/c back on, and clear out a little Saturday Clutter, shall we? The Red Sox returned to Fenway yesterday and immediately made themselves right at home, defeating the Seattle Mariners 2-1 7-4. (I should have had more coffee before I wrote that.) John Lackey was solid (admittedly against a very bad line-up), and Jacoby... Read more →
