**MOJO** - Unstoppable Killing Machine Day 1

The Left on Base bug bit the Red Sox offense again last night against the Royals. It was an offensive display (pun intended) which seemed to lack urgency, and which failed to put the game away despite given plenty of opportunities to do so. With Curt Schilling coming back to make his first start since April tonight, the Sox will want to be unrelenting and unmerciful today, if for no other reason than to make up for letting last night's game get away from them. The team has a variety of music they like to employ for coming into the game, whether for an at bat or out of the bullpen. However, today the music will be much simpler:

Ch - Ch - Ch - Ah - Ah -Ah

Drown him, burn him, stab him, shoot him, blow him up... it doesn't matter. He's going to keep coming back, and there is nothing you can do about it. May the Sox offense learn from this example, and treat each inning like another chapter in Friday the 13th (and hopefully we won't go extras, because Jason X kind of blew). You can get them out in one inning, but they are just going to come back swinging the next.

Also lets see Curt's splitter work today and cut down batters like his last appearance in Anaheim, dropping the hitters like bags of meat. And yes, those knife metaphors are no accident.

Show no mercy.
