The team was a bit conflicted with their new pitcher. On the one hand his dominating presence and 112 MPH fast ball was a welcome addition to a team struggling late in the season.

“And yes fans are still disappointed with MLB Union not signing a contract extension. But the replacement players brought in from Hollywood has proved to very entertaining for many of the crowd, bringing in sellout crowds to all of the end-of-season games.

And that’s all from Los Angeles Angels of Anahiem field.”

Last year, the Red Sox broke the fabled curse of the Bambino and won the World Series, but only after coming back from a 3-1 deficit to the Yankees to win the AL pennant. In the Star Wars movies, the wookie Chewbacca was a pal of Han Solo, who was played by Harrison Ford. Harrison Ford also played Indiana Jones, who found the Ark of the Covenant but then lost it somewhere in a government warehouse. Remember that an army that marches with the Ark of the Covenant before it is invincible. And now, Chewbacca appears in Fenway with the word “ARK” above his head. Coincidence? Dan Brown and I think not!
Chewie didn’t mind putting in celebrity appearances at Fenway, but he resented being made the focus of yet another caption contest.
The fur flew at Fenway today, as another heat seeker takes out a Blue Jay Mascot.
