Orr, Bourque and Bruins Legends First Skate

Fenway was filled with Bruins hockey legends today as the new ice hosted names like Orr, Bourque, O'Reilly, and Neely for the inaugural skate. Bobby Orr has been hanging out in the Front office for the past few hours and he signed a copy of the Lussier photo of him flying through the air after scoring the Stanley Cup-winning goal in 1970 a bunch of us. (

That is the one of the most famous sports photographs of all time so I'm especially pumped about it. How many times has he signed "Dear Mike, Good Luck Always, Bobby Orr" in his life??? I don't really care.

New Sox for Christmas

The Red Sox had back to back press conferences today to announce the signings of John Lackey (five years) and Mike Cameron (two years).
Bringing Lackey in makes me feel less sick about the Yankees signing Curtis Granderson last week. A little bit anyway.

Rink Installation Under Way

Well, the outline of the rink is taking shape at Fenway. The boards will start going in tomorrow and we'll really be able to see how it's going to look. More to come as the progression continues...

World Series Program

MLB sent me a copy of the World Series program this week and I had a pretty nice double-truck of J Bay leading off the pictures section...

All Quiet on the Fenway Front

I was hoping/expecting to have been posting some of the best photos of the year this past week.
Things, obviously, did not turn out so well and I've avoided the blog as I haven't felt like re-living the last three games. Maybe later I'll post some stuff from game three...

Fun with a Tilt Shift

My friend CJ is letting me borrow a tilt-shift lens ( which basically lets you fine-tune selective focus. Holy Crap! This thing is cool. I am very excited about this...

In the first minute of fiddling (and with absolutely no idea how to use the thing) I took this picture of Pedroia's bat and glove on the dugout bench.

More to come on with this puppy soon...

(Thanks Ceej!)

Ellsbury Pads Record

The first inning last night:

Boston took a 1-0 lead when Ellsbury singled, stole his major-league leading 68th base and advanced on fielders choice by Victor Martinez and scored on a sacrifice fly by Youk.

This is the Red Sox playing small ball.

Ellsbury is starting to look like a top-tier leadoff hitter. His average is sitting at .301 and he has collected 186 hits. If he can take a few more walks and raise his OBP a little bit the Sox will be in good shape in Center Field for long time.

Sox Robbed by Toronto

The last time I posted from the photo pit the Sox were rolling. Now they are scuffling. A win tonight would have meant a wildcard berth and hopefully some halfway decent celebration photos. Now who knows? (mid seventh, down 8-2 as I type) @#$%^&

Great game tonight! Defensive whiz Alex Gonzalez is batting .300 and collected his first walk-off hit as a Sox. And the team is rolling now, seven in a row and ten at Fenway.

Dice Rolls

DiceK returned from a three-month stint on the DL and dominated the highest scoring offense in the AL last night with six shutout innings. Anyone see that coming? He hasn't pitched like that since last season (thanks a lot %^&* World Baseball Classic!) Not to mention this is most likely the team that the Sox will face in the ALDS next month. Wow. Good timing. Now it looks like our playoff rotation is all set. How do you say "gelling" in Japanese? I'm starting to look forward to California.

V-Mart Equals Badass

Victor Martinez comes off the bench cold to pinch hit and sends the first pitch into deep center for a three RBI triple. He is a bad man (like Leon Powe). Brian Snyder and CJ Gunther can kiss my butt.

Blogging from the "Pit"

I decided to bring my laptop into the photo pit tonight in an attempt to make my time between innings more efficient and not save all the editing for after the game. Seems to  be a great idea. The obvious next progression is  live blogs from the pit...

Byrd is the Word

Don't believe anyone who tells you they expected Paul Byrd to come into Fenway Park today and out pitch Roy Halladay. Granted Halladay has been terrible his last few starts. No complaints though. Nice game today. Quick and victorious.

Fenway, From Up Above

I'm not sure if I can think of a cooler perk of my job than getting to update the aerial photos of the park. Thanks to Mike Peavey, the coolest helicopter pilot I know (okay the only helicopter pilot I know but still) for taking me up and predicting that Thursday would be the best day of the week for it. Check out his IMDB page to see all the movies that he has worked on, it's impressive.
