CSN is showing a special showing every half-inning in which Abreu homered this month, with a little commentary, called "Abreu's April".

I got interrupted by a lengthy phone call during the show, but I recorded it and will watch it later. Perhaps I will save it for after a particularly painful Sox loss. :D:

Abreu sure is fun to watch, even on replay! However, when I first heard about it, I wondered how it could possibly be 2-1/2 hours long. I didn't get to see much of it, but it seemed there was a lot of filler --- not just Abreu's at bats, but most of the half inning prior to and after his at bats as well. I thought that was too much.

Also, Garfien said the Sox were 9-1 in games that Abreu homered. Didn't Abreu have 2 multi-HR games? So, his 10 home runs came in 8 games. So, the Sox couldn't have been 9-1 in those 8 games.

No, they'll be 146-16...I'm just saving it for that only other loss of the season...you know, that ONE particularly painful loss. :D:

Yeah, I felt the show was probably overkill too as far as length. Probably could have been edited into a one hour show. However, CSN was no doubt looking to fill a prime time programming slot with the Bulls eliminated, the Sox and Cubs both off, and the Hawks currently in between playoff rounds. It probably got better ratings then their usual fare of poker or fishing shows when Chicago's teams are off.

Oh thank goodness... I suppose I can live with one more loss, but like you it's going to be very... very... painful.

I look forward to watching the broadcasts of Abreau's May, Abreau's June etc.

I know there was some fluff, but I settled in for that 9th inning vs the Rays and Balfour....that was one great inning, with a little bit of everything...nothing like seeing PK get truly pissed at Balfor...don't mess with the captain.
Then the hustle play by Eaton.
Then the unsuccessful replay challenge by madden.

The great at bat by Marcus...

and the game winning homer by Jose...

very cool inning.

I thought love was only true in fairy tales
Meant for someone else but not for me

It's a tough division
That's the way it seems
Disappointment haunted all our dreams...

Then I saw his swing!
Now I'm Abreuliever!

Not a peep, of doubt in my mind!

I'm Abreuliever, with baseball fever, I can't lie!

My parents live in the same building as Jose in the River East area. My dad met him in the elevator a few weeks ago they tried to have a conversation even though my dad doesn't know Spanish and Jose doesn't know English.

He said Jose was super-nice, all smiles, and he gave my dad a fist-bump when he left the elevator. :smile:
