Sox guarantee they finish no lower than 2-seed and are assured a bye into the semi finals.
The Metro Red Sox won their third Masters title in a row, this time with the much needed support of the Boys from Saugus. Merlina, Nicolo, and Capozzi worked their bribery, extortion, corruption, graft, and embezzlement in varying ways to secure the title.
In addition, the Sox bats destroyed opposing pitching, belting out 250 hits in 17 games for a .436 average and a league record 208 runs. Details for a Rolling Rally to the Aurora Club will be announced soon.
The Metro Red Sox remained unbeaten after a close 6-3 game over the Billerica Indians. Glenn Watson
didn't have his best stuff but hung in there for the win. A web gem by Pete Nicolo
ended the Indians one big rally.
After the game, there were snacks and salsa left on home plate. Although no one saw who left it there, the Locke Middle School surveillance cameras picked up the grainy image below. Coach Pencil issued a statement that the pretzel caper is a closed issue and no further comment or suspensions will be discussed.
We can't have this hanging over the team the entire season. After last weeks game, two bags of pretzels were mysteriously missing. A loud shrill laughter could be heard in the distance and a trail of salsa led to the location where Eric "Wonderboy" Kimble's car had been parked. Metro Sox pitcher Officer "Rhino" Garofano was woken up in his cruiser and alerted to be on the lookout. Manager Pencil vowed to get to the bottom of this even if it meant calling in Cappy Capozzi to break some knees.
