Stick To The Script You Spaz

Hey Peeps and anyone else checking in. A special "Hey" goes out to Hazel Mae.

Game two of the Stanley Cup Final goes tonight in Anaheim with both teams trying to say the right things. The Ducks are going with the canned responses "We're sure we'll see a much better Senators team on Wednesday" - the Tards are sticking to the old "We have to get back to playing our game" - GM John Muckler went so far as to say "We stunk". Then, there are guys like Tards C Jason Spezza who try to think out of the box, who try to be quotable, but end up showing that they were born to play hockey. When asked about his thoughts for Game 2, Spezza replied "Adversity has been our strength all year." HUH? Good try Jason...

We fully expect the Ducks to win tonight using the same formula they used on Monday night to beat the Tards. The Ducks should come out even faster and harder tonight, knowing that taking a commanding 2-0 lead against a team that, for all their talk, still has some lingering demons to deal with due to past playoff disappointments. While Ottawa claims they didn't have their A-game on Monday night - neither did Anaheim, Dustin Penner and Corey Perry weren't really factors in the game, expect that to change tonight; also, expect the Ducks to tone it down just a bit tonight...they won't be giving the Tards 7 PP opportunities.

Detroit Tigers DH Gary Sheffield had three hits, including two home runs, and drove in five runs to lead the Tigers to a 14-2 win over Tampa Bay. How good would he have looked in a Red Sox uniform...say, instead of J.D. Drew?

New York Mets 1B Carlos Delgado hit two home runs, including a walk off shot in the 12th, and drove in three runs to lead the Mets to a 5-4 win over the Giants. Hazel's old pal is starting to get into a groove.

Boston Red Sox P Josh Beckett returned from the DL last night and shut the Cleveland Indians down - limiting their high-octane offence to two runs on three hits and a walk over seven innings; Beckett finished the night with seven Ks. Its going to be great seeing him go up against the Yankees on Sunday night.

Another 2-1 night with a minimal gain - thanks for nothing New York Yankees. Two day total stands at + $85, we'll bust out with a great night soon enough.

San Diego over Pittsburgh - we'll go with Chris Young today, while we were happy to see Pittsburgh beat the Padres yesterday, we just don't see it happening again. Lay $100 on the Padres - $135.

Los Angeles over Washington - former Red Sox P Derek Lowe takes the mound tonight in Washington, while he has had a hard time on the road, we like him to get it done tonight. Lay $100 on Red Sox West - $150.

Oakland over Texas - Dan Haren goes for the A's tonight - with any run support, this guy would be getting Cy Young consideration (and I'm not just saying that cuz he's a Maeple Leaf). Lay $100 on the A's - $215.

That's it gang - have a great one peeps.

You can take everyone by surprise by doing the unexpected. Don't expect loved ones to be pleased but, if it works for you, go for it. A visit with someone who has experience will help considerably. 3 stars

Hazel, I hope things are groovy in your world.
