For the Red Sox fan who has everything but a life: Fenway Park grass

Leave a comment

You can buy a ten pound bag of regular old grass seed for, oh, $12-15 or so. Or, you can buy a ten pound bag of regular old grass seed with a Boston Red Sox logo on it for $22:

The Scotts Co. yesterday unveiled a grass-seed product that “contains actual varieties” used for the lush lawn at 4 Yawkey Way.

The $22 bags of baseball blend bear the Red Sox logo and the
signature of David Mellor, the team’s director of grounds, who helped
Scotts create the Kentucky bluegrass seed mix and companion lawn
fertilizer.

The David Mellor?  Well, why didn’t you say so . . .

For those curious, Wrigley Field blend will be a little later in arriving to store shelves because they’re having trouble getting the blend of pebbles, crabgrass, divots and old pipes just right.

We know Clayton Kershaw will oppose Dallas Keuchel in Game 1 of the World Series. We now know the rest of the Dodgers’ rotation order, per Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times. After Kershaw, it’ll be Rich Hill, then Yu Darvish, followed by Alex Wood.

No surprise, that’s the same order the Dodgers used in the NLCS against the Cubs. Dodger starters combined to post a 2.67 ERA with 31 strikeouts and four walks across 27 innings in the NLCS.

The Astros haven’t yet announced their rotation order, but we can safely assume Justin Verlander will follow Keuchel in Game 2.
