We do not pirate media in this house*

Usually the awesome picture posts are the province of Out In Centerfield, and usually we don't, er, loot Boston Dirt Dogs for content, but this bears repeating:

Well, considering the bullpen is the Black Pearl, it was only a matter of time. Still, the Jack Sparrow hat/wig really puts this over the top.

We eagerly await spring training, when Tek will have to explain to the pitching staff that, no, this doesn't mean they're allowed to use swords and pistols against the Detroit Tigers this year, and, yes, his wife is still laughing at him.

*Please tell the RIAA we said so.

No pistols against the Tigers? Eek. Are we gonna be able to beat them without Adimral Timlin's sword? No? Hopefully his fastball is enough.

Those Tigers scare me. Magglio Ordonez has scared me for a good seven months, since I saw him play at Fenway. But add in Miguel Cabrera & co. and you might as well sign the death warrant for every other AL Central team.

I'm pretty positive that Tek secretly wishes he could be a pirate in real life. And that he's a little jealous he's not an official member of the Bullpen Band- but would never admit that to Timlin.

Hmmm, kinda looks like a pirate with that beard.

You people are soft and scaredy cats!

These are the World Champions: The Red Sox form Boston Mass and nothing can stand in their way for a repeat championship!

Every other team's fans are scared of the Red Sox!

We will again be GREAT in '08. REPEAT will be the FEAT!
