Torii Hunter is getting old

Aug 26, 2012, 6:32 PM EDT

37-year-old Torii Hunter is tired and aching after taking his third straight 0-for-3 and getting hit by a pitch Sunday in the final game of the Angels’ six-game road trip.

Injured Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks has little better to do at the moment, so he intends to foil Torii’s plan.

    Tori’s aging process is precisely what distinguishes him from the rest of us.

      And in other news today, Mr. Snail was reported to be recovering at Macondo’s Jackson Memorial Hospital this morning after a hit-and-run accident with an unidentified gopher tortoise in the Loxahatchee Wildlife Sanctuary. Mr. Snail sustained a fractured shell and lacerations to his foot in the accident. Police are following up anonymous telephone tips about the identity and whereabouts of the tortoise. When questioned about how the accident occurred, Mr. Snail replied, “I don’t know – it all happened so fast.”

        Obviously you do not want to jinx the Fish today against the Evil Empire West. I am watching that game and it brought back memories of a youthful indiscretion during a trip to Miami Beach in the 1970’s.

      My entire youth in Miami Beach in the 1970s consisted of indiscretions.

      Don’t sweat it Scouter. I am sure there will be another 10 – 15 Redsox articles by day’s end.

    I haven’t met anyone who is not getting old.

      Yes, there is only one other option.

      Wow, how did anyone as stupid as you are ever learn to type?

    • raysfan1 - Aug 26, 2012 at 9:59 PM

      So, did you mean happy, or brightly colored? Those are the first and second definitions of gay in the dictionary.

    I’d feel old too if I got hit by a 95 mph fastball!
