G52: Red Sox 5, Tigers 1

Red Sox - 102 002 000 - 5  9  0
Tigers - 100 000 000 - 1 9 2
Dice (5-6-1-3-6, 96) pitched out of two serious jams and after a trio of Red Sox relievers tossed three perfect innings, Jonathan Papelbon needed 35 pitches to get through the ninth: three singles followed by three strikeouts.

Boston grabbed a 1-0 lead six pitches into the game. Dustin Pedroia doubled to left on a 1-0 pitch and scored when J.D. Drew singled to center on a 1-2 count. Dice walked Clete Thomas to start the home first and Placido Polanco singled. Magglio Ordonez GIDP, but Miguel Cabrera and Curtis Granderson singled. Dice struck out Brandon Inge for the third out.

The Red Sox took a 3-1 lead in the third when Drew singled and Bay smashed a one-out, two-run dong to left, his 16th tater of the year.

Matsuzaka walked the 8th and 9th hitters (on 16 pitches) to start the Detroit fifth, but struck out Thomas, got Polanco to line out to left and fanned Ordonez.

The Sox scored twice off relievers Ryan Perry and Brandon Lyon in the sixth on three walks, a single and a bases-loaded HBP.

Manny Delcarmen pitched a 1-2-3 sixth, Hideki Okajima retired the four batters he faced and Ramon Ramirez got the final two hitters in the eighth. In the ninth, Bot allowed a broken bat single to Cabrera (cbsb), a line drive single to left by Granderson (bbf) and a ground single to left by Inge (f). Bases loaded, no one out.

Josh Anderson battled through an 11-pitch at-bat (ffffbfffff), but chased a high fastball for strike three. Pinch-hitter Jeff Larish whiffed on an inside heater (bbff) and Ramon Santiago (bbcs) struck out on gas to end the game.

David Ortiz slapped an opposite-field single in the second inning, but grounded to first (a 3635 DP) to end the third and struck out in his last three at-bats. ... Jacoby Ellsbury reached base four times: an infield error, two singles and an intentional walk. ... Jason Varitek singled, doubled and walked.

***

Daisuke Matsuzaka (8.82, 55 ERA+) / Rick Porcello (3.48, 134 ERA+)

The Red Sox (29-22), who trail the Yankees (30-21) by one game, visit Comerica Park for three games against the AL Central-leading Tigers.

(New York hosts the Rangers, who are 4.5 GA of the Angels in the AL West. LAA is playing in Toronto.)

Last season, Dice held hitters to an MLB-best .164 average with runners in scoring position. Everyone knew the Houdini act could not last. In his four starts this year, hitters are batting .400 (10-for-25) with RISP. He has still pitched far better with the bases empty:
              PA    AVG   OBP   SLG    OPS
Runners On 47 .297 .413 .432 .845
Bases Empty 39 .472 .513 .889 1.402
Although he dropped Jacoby Ellsbury to the 8th spot in Sunday's lineup and led off with Dustin Pedroia and J.D. Drew, Terry Francona says any changes are not an attempt to jump-start the offense or based on a hunch:
I think that that goes against everything I believe in. I think the one thing I'm supposed to be is consistent and that goes against that. ... We are getting to the point where we're 50 games into the season and I think the numbers start meaning something. ... We need to have our on-base guys for the guys in the middle of the order. ... Sometimes when we don't score, you can look at a lot of things. It's a little easy to get mixed up, so I just try to sit back and think, "OK, what can help us?" without forgetting what can hurt us.
Tito also said "there is a pretty decent chance" Mark Kotsay (9-for-26 for the PawSox) would be activated tonight. Jeff Bailey likely would be sent back to Pawtucket.

MLB.com:
How does Porcello [a 6-5, 200 RHP] follow up a 5-0 May? Continuing the unbeaten streak into June would be an impressive step. In addition to being the first Tigers pitcher since John Doherty in 1984 to win five or more games in a month, the impressive rookie has posted a 1.50 ERA during his current five-game winning streak. According to Elias Sports Bureau, that makes Porcello -- at 20 years, 151 days old -- the second-youngest pitcher in Major League history to go 5-0 with an ERA of 1.50 or better in any five-start span (the Mets' Dwight Gooden went 5-0 with a 1.43 ERA in five starts at age 19 in 1984). ... He's worked seven innings only once in his nine starts, a clear sign that the Tigers will take a conservative approach and not overwork him.
BP 2009:
Porcello was universally seen as one of the top pitching prospects in the game before he threw a pitch as a professional, and in his pro debut, he led the Florida State League in ERA as a teenager. Yet, for some reason, his season was categorized by some as a disappointment, mostly due to a low strikeout rate. However, the Tigers limited him by only allowing a small number of breaking balls per start and had him focus on his low-90s sinker rather than his monster four-seam fastball. Despite this deliberate pair of handicaps, we repeat: he still led the league in ERA.
Porcello's highest pitch count total of the season has been 95; he's been between 82 and 89 in seven of his nine starts (log).

***

John Smoltz pitched five innings (5-4-1-0-6, 73) for Greenville (A) on Sunday, allowing one run on four hits to the Charleston RiverDogs. Smoltz struck out his final three batters.
I don't think I'm far away. Today was more a familiar pitching that I thought I was capable of the last month, two months. For the most part, I'm really pleased with today's effort. I felt really fresh in the fifth inning, even though it's the longest stint I've had.
Smoltz's next two starts are expected to be with Pawtucket.

Jon Lester was the first Boston lefty to strike out at least 12 batters while allowing three hits or fewer since Roger Moret (9-1-0-2-12) on August 21, 1974. All three of the hits allowed by Lester on Sunday were infield singles.

The Red Sox executed their first two sacrifice bunts of the season on Sunday; by contrast, Seattle has 26. ... Steve Buckley of the Herald checks in with Portland starter Junichi Tazawa (2.82 in 10 starts). ... In his June 1 mailbag, MLB.com's Ian Browne writes: "I could see [Jed Lowrie] being back in the lineup in about three weeks."

I wanted to go to these games in Detroit, but it didn't work out. Boo.

I'll have to settle for two games at Fenway and one in Toronto this season.

Zenslinger said...

Oatmeal lumps reveal LBJ batting eighth again.

9. Nick Green, SS
-- Daisuke Matsuzaka, RHP

9casey said...

Lugo must be in the doghouse.....

tim said...

No Lugo... :-)

Hoping for a quick return to the gamethreads, friends. I'm currently on the schoolwork DL - ton of stuff been going on for the past month or so.

Zenslinger said...

A lot of talk burbling on Sons of Sam Horn and elsewhere about the Sox trading for a hitter.

Is a Nick Johnson worth it? Not much power, but awesome OBP. He could cycle through DH/1B, sitting Ortiz against RHP (Johnson or Lowell as DH) and giving Lowell days off he might well need vs. lefties (Johnson plays 1B, Youk at 3B). His injury history, of course, is bad.

There's even talk of blowing off major prospects (including Jed) to get Hanley Ramirez back. He's signed through 2014. Whether it's Theo talking about it or just sports writers, I don't know. That would be huge.

Some kind of shakeup on the way?

redsock said...

Everything I read says that FLA will absolutely not trade Hanley, so everyone should stop saying "Get it done Theo!"

Jere said...

I know, why would Florida trade their marquee player just cuz we really want him.....

Eck tonite.

redsock said...

tigers feed on EI, but NESN on a rogers channel!

Jere said...

way to rip DP

meuniermr said...

I lived in Detroit for 2007 while going to grad school at Wayne State u. I went to 2 games there, one Dice-K loss in extreme heat in July.

redsock said...

FUCK YEAH!

nice start

meuniermr said...

The other game was Verlander's no-hitter against MIL, I decided to go see an interleague contest for the heck of it and then THAT HAPPENED!

Kevin said...

Well, that's a good way to start the game.

Now someone drive him in.

Ish said...

Quick 1-0 lead!

Jere said...

hooray for quick runs

redsock said...

there's a run!

Kevin said...

Fire!

Jere said...

Didn't this pitcher used to be in Youth of Today?

Ish said...

Interesting out-call by the first base ump.

He didn't go for that straight shot. He went for more of an upper right-hand jab.

This ump punches like a girl. :P

L-girl said...

I save the day (night) by finding NESN.

Jere said...

one half inning, one missed pitch for NESN

Kevin said...

And now the question: Which version of Dice-K are we getting tonight?

redsock said...

there's more than one version?

Jere said...

TEX had man on third, one out, could not score vs Ass Job Burnett

redsock said...

there goes the no-walker

Kevin said...

"there's more than one version?"

I certainly hope there is, or this is going to be a long season.

Kevin said...

Oh look, a leadoff walk.

Zenslinger said...

I know, why would Florida trade their marquee player just cuz we really want him.....Buchholz, Lowrie, and more.

Plus, after next year, it's going to get difficult for the Marlins to pay his salary.

I'm not saying it's likely.

Kevin said...

Optimism fading quickly.

DP please?

Jere said...

key dp. Maggli-slo

Zenslinger said...

My stomach is flipping due to the roller coaster we're on...already.

Kevin said...

Alright, nicely done.

Now get the third out.

L-girl said...

What rollercoaster?

L-girl said...

tied, bah

Kevin said...

Or not...

Kevin said...

Well, I guess the one good thing is that he's only giving up singles so far.

L-girl said...

Out please!

L-girl said...

Oh, thanks.

Zenslinger said...

26-pitch inning.

Yarrrrrgh.

Jere said...

We're lookin' at 9-9 after 9.

Kevin said...

Any chance we can get that lead back?

Jere said...

Yanks strand 2, 0-0 after 1.

redsock said...

and dice at 234 pitches

Jere said...

eat it shifty

Kevin said...

Papi base hit!

Jere said...

2 opp fie in a ro

L-girl said...

singles are good, if they keep coming

redsock said...

opp field action

lets go lyndon

Kevin said...

Alright Lyndon, drive some runs in here.

Or at least don't ground into a double play.

Jere said...

technically that's 3 opposite field hits in a row. Unless they call an E on that...

Kevin said...

Alright, do not waste a bases-loaded opportunity.

Jere said...

Why was Green hacking there? Make the kid throw a strike with bases loaded.

Jere said...

and it is an E on that other play. I thought it should have been one.

Ish said...

Daaaaamn. So much for that huh?

Kevin said...

Bleh

redsock said...

porcello being dice

Ish said...

Squirrgil!!

Jere said...

It could be an elephant walking around out there and Drew would just have that same expression on his face.

Jere said...

savingsquirrels.com!!!!

L-girl said...

Good thing Tala is watching the game. She works full-time chasing squirrels.

L-girl said...

Squirrel on the field and savingsquirrels.com is behind the plate???

redsock said...

i would like to see a list of pitchers and what % of their innings are 1-2-3? where does dice rank?

L-girl said...

That was supposed to say "good thing Tala is NOT watching the game". duh

Ish said...

Eck loves gas!

redsock said...

eck loves gas!

meuniermr said...

Castig going on about The Sopranos since one of the actors threw out the 1st pitch.

Jere said...

Nolan Ryan 277 WP

Jere said...

My NESN's in 3-D or something.

L-girl said...

embarrassing! walking on ball 3

Jere said...

Wait, they even announced the next batter after the guy thought it was ball 4.... it sounded like

tjd said...

He can't finish the inning...he hasn't loaded the bases yet.

Kevin said...

Very inefficient so far.

Third out please?

Zenslinger said...

Wha' happened?

Jere said...

Yanks continue their streak of runs scoring on balls off fielders' gloves. That's 3 in a row, one tonight.

L-girl said...

Did you just see an ad where they close up on a guy's face, and then you see his whiskers, like cartoon whiskers who are waiting to be shaved? YUUUUUCK

L-girl said...

I think we must have Canadian ads, as here's a Conservative ad bashing the Liberal leader. So you probably didn't see the whiskers.

Jere said...

no I saw Mayor Menino, talking about...I don't know what.

Jere said...

ablaze

Ish said...

L, Letric Shave?

DUMB.

Jere said...

I was gonna say, I love this stuff...UNLESS IT MEANS MISSING PITCHES. And sure enough, the next pitch, we don't see.

L-girl said...

I guess it's a Cdn feed. I don't know what the ad was for. It was just gross!

Kevin said...

Or...GDGD fucks it up.

Whatever

L-girl said...

DOUNG!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ish said...

DOOUUNNNGGGGGG HOMRE CANADA THUNDER BAY!!!!

etc.

Woo!

Jere said...

da aa aa aa aa aa aa aah

tim said...

Le dongé!

meuniermr said...

That may have reached his native country!

Kevin said...

THUNDER!

L-girl said...

i heart bay

Jere said...

you deserve that Porcello

tim said...

Come on Papi...as of today I have more dongs than you in my summer softball league! Tie me!

Ish said...

Breaking News: Mysterious baseball lands in downtown Thunder Bay. Origin unknown. Investigation ongoing.

tim said...

Ah fuck. Not who I want in a rundown.

Jere said...

The Yanks' streak of scoring on balls off gloves is over...because they scored ON A BALK! Goddamit. 2-0.

meuniermr said...

Come on Mike, I know you arn't that slow; IDK why he wasn't off on contact?

redsock said...

when bay really tags one, he has this thing where he has the bat pointed down to the ground, he is looking out to the bleachers and takes 2-3 steps towards first. i love it.

it is sort of like millar's head duck and beginning trot to first after a walk -- made famous in 2004.

Jere said...

The force was off when the guy touched first so Mike tried the rundown route instead of sliding into a waiting tag.

Jere said...

re: Bay's dongs: ha, that's the Esaskian thing I mentioned once. I love it too. Of course, Esasky doing it like that may be all in my mind, but I think it was kinda similar.

Ish said...

I love the look on Bay's face when he really tags one. He's like "OOOOOHHH!!"

Jere said...

DP DP

tim said...

I may as well get in on the Bay lovefest as well.

Fuck ya!

---

Anyway, yeah, I love Jay Bay!

tim said...

I also love pirated MLB.TV!

L-girl said...

Ish, I just saw the ad again, it is Letric shave. When they close up on his beard before it becomes a cartoon, it just squicks me!

L-girl said...

Last season there was an ad for some toenail fungus treatment. A cartoon toe and fungus. The fungus lifted up the toenail to jump underneath it, and it just made me totally sick. I had to look away every time.

L-girl said...

Tim, we have NESN on Rogers SportsNet tonight. Channel 74 in our area.

redsock said...

so nesn shows a 2-hour version of the game at midnight.

why not show the whole game? why cut it down?

what the fuck does nesn have slotted into the 2 AM spot that is so important?

Ish said...

Jacoby Vroom.

L-girl said...

I think they're only allowed to show re-runs in 2 hours. More stupid MLB rules.

Ish said...

Eck on Ellsbury: "He's gonna steal bases no matter where he's hitting in the lineup."

tim said...

That sounds gross, L (the fungus thing). Makes me puke in my mouth a little.

Woo, LBJ!

Also I've yet to purchase a TV so still streaming games! The slingbox is down though, going to check that tomorrow at my pops' place.

Jere said...

Maybe it's just the stance/swing with the high hands that reminds me of Vertigo Boy. And they're both right-handed white guys who came from the NL and hit many dongs for us in a year ending in 9. Here are the stances:

Bay.

Esasky.

Ish said...

There have been full replays of games on NESN. The difference is it'll say "Sox in 2" obviously for the 2 hour replay. The full replay will say "Double Play", both shown on the screen at the lower right.

L-girl said...

Really? I thought they weren't allowed to re-b'cast full length games. Hmm.

redsock said...

tex 3-2

9casey said...

Jere said...
I know, why would Florida trade their marquee player just cuz we really want him.....


Because Fla. knows you need pitching too just not 1 marquee player........Now Git er Done Theo

tim said...

Wow, ton of empty seats there.

Ish said...

L it seems to me as if they don't edit them down at all.

I don't understand at all why MLB makes these rules. How does it make sense?

L-girl said...

I'm still annoyed we're not there tonight. It's an easy 4-hr drive from our place - I really enjoyed it last year. Next year I hope.

Jere said...

Burnout throwing 21 pitches per inning thru 3.

9casey said...

tim said...
Wow, ton of empty seats there.



CHB said they are down 10,000 per game.....

tim said...

I liked the replays NESN used to show that were the last pitch of every at bat and resultant play. It was like the whole game in 20 or 30 mins.

L-girl said...

It's hard to buy tickets to a baseball game when you're unemployed.

Jere said...

That might be Breakfast with the Red Sox. It's only one hour.

9casey said...

tim said...
I liked the replays NESN used to show that were the last pitch of every at bat and resultant play. It was like the whole game in 20 or 30 mins.



Geez, Tim you might as well just watch spotscenter

9casey said...

or sportscenter,

redsock said...

why are mlb such nazis about getting any and all 8-second clips of games removed from youtube?

they are idiots.

tim said...

Yeah, I heard the Red Wings were hurting as well, trying to sell PLAYOFF seats. Wonder how the sales have been for the finals...

I would've enjoyed going down to a game or two there as well...damn school.

Jere said...

"It's hard to buy tickets to a baseball game when you're unemployed."

I never let it stop me!

L-girl said...

Ish, I don't know, it must have something to do with ad revenues. I guess.

tim said...

9c, don't you mean Basketball/Football-center?

9casey said...

L-girl said...
It's hard to buy tickets to a baseball game when you're unemployed.



They said GM couldn't pay for that sign in Center but the owner let them keep it there and also added the Ford and Chrysler sign...

Jere said...

My last comment was meant to be in sort of a Henny Youngman style. Not a "you assholes, buy tickets anyway!" way.

Ish said...

Haha Granderson. How many outs are there? lmao.

L-girl said...

That was a DP?!?! Ha ha ha ha

Jere said...

9-4-3 on that? I looked down.

Benjamin said...

That doubleplay was Natinals-esque.

redsock said...

mlb did that: condensed games, last pitch of every AB, 20 minutes. they don't offer those anymore.

Benjamin said...

Can't count balls. Can't count outs.

tim said...

All sports leagues are idiots. Shutting down streams of games and removing clips from the internet. Deny the fans the ability to watch/follow their team or relive kickass plays. Ugh.

WTF was granderson smoking there?

Jere said...

Maybe I didn't mean Henny Youngman. I just meant it was supposed to be, like, a joke. With a "hey-oh" at the end. Okay, done.

L-girl said...

Or as they say in Canada, Sportscentre.

Which we like to pronounce sports-sentry.

Amy said...

Good evening, all.

Kevin said...

We're getting a lot of luckily-timed double plays.

Whatever, I'll take it.

Jere said...

ooh, third missed pitch, in the fifth. Great ratio, NESN!

L-girl said...

Jere, I'm glad you explained that one! :)

tim said...

Hey Amy!

And Sportscentre totally > Sportscenter.

Zenslinger said...

Hard to believe Drew is batting only .258. Seems to have hit the ball pretty well this year.

Ish said...

I can imagine it'd be weird and sort of risky to drive around the Detroit area in a foreign car these days. Any days but especially these days. But I wouldn't know.

L-girl said...

"All sports leagues are idiots."

This does seem to be true. They create so many hurdles between the teams and their fans.

Ish said...

Eck did very well reading the Amica pitch zone promo. Yay!

L-girl said...

hi amy

Amy said...

I see DiceK has run up his pitch count as usual. I have to say that when I heard he was pitching, I was not disappointed to miss a few innings. But not complaining---obviously the Houdini act is working tonight.

L-girl said...

I just devoured a bowl of delicious strawberries.

And I posted this in honour of Amy (off-topic) and Ish (food).

Amy said...

LOL, Laura. Am I so predictably off topic? My mind just wanders while the rest of you are paying attention to announcers and ads.

Jere said...

MLB should just offer up every game there is for free. The dream is to go to any boxscore on retrosheet or BBRef, and there'd be a little square ON the page, and you could press play and watch the whole game. Games with no TV or pre-TV could have the radio call. Others could have photos. Mind you, this would require a new Internet.

Jere said...

I planted strawberries a few weeks ago. Just today I saw some miniscule leaves in that spot. It's either a coincidence, or they're finally coming up.

L-girl said...

My dream used to be, to be able to do any business I needed to do 24 hrs a day, any day of the week, and to do all my shopping without ever going into a store. Now it's almost possible.

Jere said...

I looooove Jeff Suppan, ha

L-girl said...

Well Amy, put it this way, you're always happy to follow any comment in any direction, and to fill in information as needed.

Ish said...

Speaking of food, I just finished eating a thin-crust BBQ chicken pizza made by UNO... BBQ type pizza sauce: Check. Cheese. Check. Very tasty grilled chicken: Check. Crispy thin-crust: Check.

At this point we have an amazing little pizza here. But as food manufacturers and restaurants always seem to go, they feel like they need to complicate it and bring down the quality by adding red onions. Because a BBQ chicken pizza without red onions is too simple, I guess.

Amy said...

I totally agree with the shopping without ever going into a store idea. I hate shopping, especially in malls. In fact, Harvey used to take the girls shopping when they were little because he knew how cranky it made me.

And there I go, talking about non-baseball matters!

L-girl said...

We had a great thin-crust pizza last night, with garlic and black olives. Yum.

Ish said...

I love walking in grocery stores. I don't mind walking around in malls unless I'm stuck there waiting for someone else.

Unfortunately I live with shopaholics!

Ish said...

At least I could pick the black olives off. Onions are sneaky little devils.

L-girl said...

It's good to know other women who hate shopping. I also hate shopping. I can't believe (and can't stand) how many people shop for recreation.

Jere said...

I was just at Modern (Theo's favorite of the New Haven pizza places) this weekend. Gorged my fucking face with pizza.

s1c said...

Man I will be glad when the next two weeks are over, these award presentations and other stuff is causing me to miss my sox games.

Amy said...

Unfortunately, my daughters love shopping. I think they have my mother's gene for that. Somehow it skipped right over me.

DiceK walks the leadoff batter. Argghh.

Ish said...

Others shop for therapy. They buy things they don't need to make themselves feel better. Or to give them a sense of purpose.

L-girl said...

I sometimes feel like a freak of nature, a woman who hates shopping. And doesn't care about shoes.

Amy said...

I care about shoes. I care that they are COMFORTABLE. End of story. I cannot wear heels to save my life, and if I could wear sneakers or sandals every day, that would be fine with me.

Shopping gives me a headache. The internet has added years to my life by sparing me those headaches!

Benjamin said...

Throw strikes, asshole.

Jere said...

Try being a baseball fan who doesn't drink alcohol and doesn't eat meat.

Amy said...

And DiceK does it again. He sure irritates me.

Ish said...

This is absurd. Walking the 8-9 men, throwing a thousand pitches to them. If you want to give yourself a challenge, just plunk three, load the bases and pitch. GAH!!!!

Jere said...

I heard Dice once walked a man just for snorin' too loud.

Ish said...

Or just being a guy who doesn't like beer.

L-girl said...

Amy, same here.

Jere, same idea.

One reason JoS is so good for me is knowing other progressive/liberal baseball fans. I often know one or the other but not both at once.

redsock said...

Try being a baseball fan who doesn't drink alcohol and doesn't eat meat.

Sounds like hell, honestly.

Benjamin said...

Much better.

s1c said...

How can you not like beer?

L-girl said...

"I heard Dice once walked a man just for snorin' too loud."

LOL!!!!!!!

This is up there with brak brak. We are cracking up.

Benjamin said...

Try being a baseball fan who doesn't drink alcohol and doesn't eat meat.

What's wrong with alcohol? I mean besides the intoxication and carcinogenic properties.

Jere said...

"Sounds like hell, honestly."

I'm quite happy and healthy, thanks.

L-girl said...

It's good to thread heavily during his starts. It distracts from the frustration.

Ish said...

"How can you not like beer?"

See?

L-girl said...

It would be hell to Allan.

I can't imagine life without wine. I'd be very sad.

Ish said...

I've switched channels and put the game on the little TV. Stanley Cup final on the big TV now. Gah Dice-K.

L-girl said...

Alcohol is not a carcinogen.

Amy said...

I live without meat, and I could live without alcohol, though I do enjoy the buzz and the taste. However, living without ice cream is unthinkable.

Benjamin said...

29 pitch inning.

redsock said...

dice toying with the tigers fans. walking the scrubs, nailing the hitters. we forget this is how he operates.

Jere said...

"How can you not like beer?"

See for me, it's the opposite. To each her own.

s1c said...

Black cherry with chocolate chip, is being dished up right now for me. mmmm

Ish said...

I love my meat. I can't imagine being a vegetarian. But I can understand it. I had thoughts when I sat down and had ribs, beef brisket and pulled pork in front of me at a BBQ joint last weekend.

Amy said...

Yes, I think without threads I would just not watch DiceK pitch. The radio might be easier to take. Not sure.

Benjamin said...

Alcohol is not a carcinogen.

WHO lists it as a Group 1 carcinogen.

I'm going to brew some apfelwein as soon as I get my new basement, though.

L-girl said...

Jere, I thought you have never drunk alcohol at all. Which is a totally fine choice, but then, you wouldn't know if you liked it or not. Your choice not to drink would not be because you don't like it, but based on something else, I assume.

Amy said...

Sounds good, S1C. I had something called Lobster Tracks tonight---vanilla ice cream with chunks of chocolate and caramel. Somehow the caramel was red (probably a carcinogen there), and since I am on the Cape, they called it Lobster Tracks. Kosher Lobster Tracks. :)

L-girl said...

I disagree with WHO on that, as do many, many doctors. The jury is still out on that one, IMO.
