Goy Vey!

”This is a special gift from God, to play baseball, and if we can spread God’s word by doing that, then we’ve almost fulfilled our calling." 

via Mike Timlin and the Boston Globe, we learn that this year’s Red Sox feature a heavy contingent of evangelical Christians, and though we aren’t in the business of maligning anyone’s spiritual beliefs (unless, of course, that person incompetently strums a guitar in the midst of a natural catastrophe), this story conjures up some interesting images of what is supposedly a chummy Red Sox’ clubhouse.  Like Curt Schilling attacking Kevin Youkilis for his witchcrafty beliefs, Trot Nixon gumming up Gabe Kapler’s favorite cleats in a nasty prank of "schmear-foot", or Jason Varitek and Trot Nixon "accidentally" knocking over Adam Stern’s makeshift sukka.   Christian, Jewish, whatever, we’re just happy knowing they all wear the same jewelry.

  • Maybe they should all pray for better pitcing performances, no?

  • Nice jewelry, one of a kind. Getting another one would lower this one’s value, and we wouldn’t want that;-)

  • A big Amen to that last sentence, SF. (Pun intended)
