I turned on the Mets game just in time to see Shingo give a bases-loaded, bases CLEARING double to Miguel Cabrera to put the Mets down 5-4 in the 7th inning. None of the runs were earned, but it feels like they should when the the relief pitcher comes in and right away gives up every inherited runner on base.

Keep your head up, Shingo...

Hold your head up..whooooooooa..hold your head up..whoooooooooa.

And if it's bad
Don't let it get you down, you can take it
And if it hurts
Don't let them see you cry, you can make it

Hold your head up, whooooooa, hold your head up
whooooooa, hold your head up, whoooooooa, hold your head high

Hang in there, Shingo!!!

A Lot of Argent fans on this thread,eh??

"Hold Your Head Up" was a top 20 hit for the group
Argent,led by Rod Argent in 1972.Argent's first claim to fame
came 8 years earlier when,as a member of the Zombies,
he wrote his first song.It went to # 1 both here and in
the UK. The title: "She's Not There".He later wrote and
recorded "Tell Her No" and"Time Of The Season" with
the Zombies.Both landed in the Billboard top 10 singles
chart.Hang in there,Shingo.I'll struggle right along with you.

To quote an old R and B band,The 5 Stairsteps,
"Ooh, child,things are gonna get easier.Ooh,child,
things will get brighter".

Enough Rock (or pop) school for the night!:D:

The Santana version of She's Not There from Moonflower is one of the great hard rock guitar solo's of all time. Raw power unleashed - Carlos at his best...

I hope Shingo gets lit up. He could have stayed with us and got a ring.

Argent was quoted some time ago as saying that Santana's
version was his favorite.Hard to argue the solo.Raw,emotional
power.Definitely a Santana highlight.:cool:

Won't he still get a ring if we win the World Series, since he was a contributor for part of the season?

Or, if you're assuming he would have been called back up in September and actually pitched in the Series, who do you remove from the bullpen to make room? And don't say David Sanders, 'cuz Shingo's not a lefty.

I won't quote myself, so just read the second part of the post before yours (#15).

I believe that it's the owner's choice on who gets the rings...I'm not sure though.

Could be, since the giddy Red Sox owners seemingly gave rings to anyone who's ever used the words "Red" or "Sox" in a sentence.

For example, I once said, "I read somewhere that it's a good idea to bring an extra pair of socks when camping," and they sent me a World Series ring!

Shingos has no more control, he should be out of baseball.

Shingo was with the team for about half of the season or more. Doesn't he still get a ring anyway if we win?

I'm a little confused about the whole who gets a ring process after the BlowSox gave rings to everybody.

I dunno, but it seems like the Sox may be distancing themselves from Shingo considering I noticed they edited out his appearance in the pre-game video and replaced it with a pic of the old brick facade of Comiskey Park.

Seems to make sense considering, you know, that he isn't part of the team anymore. But maybe that's just me... :cool:

I agree. It was a popular misconception around here that "the league was catching up to Shingo." Really, it had little to do with that. Not too many pitchers can survive in the big leagues when they are 2-0, 3-1, ball four on every batter. That was the main problem.

His main problem is mental, if he doesn't think what he is throwing works, it doesn't.

Well I'm half right. The clip of Shingo, and one right afterwards that looked like Ted Klezuski, have been replaced with a new clip that looks like Iguchi (or possibly Frank) and another old pic of Big Klu. For those watching closely, look for the segment where Bo Jackson rides in on the motorcycle they presented to Carlton Fisk, followed by a pic of someone I can't recognize, followed by Mark Buehrle, followed by a really old team photo from early 1900s. Right after that was where the Shingo segment was.

I feel like I'm decoding the JFK film! LOL But if Shingo's being disrespected we'll know for sure!

:wink:

That's absolutely correct.

That "catching up" theory is a ton of nonsense. There are pitchers that have made careers out of changeups. Some of them didn't (or don't) throw their fastball as hard as Shingo does. Why has't Foulke been run out of the league?

It's all about control. When you fall behind 2-0, 3-0, 3-1 constantly and can't control your junk pitches, everyone knows the only pitch heading to the strike zone is a meatball.
