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 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tilt-shift_photography) 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.
