ZOMG UPDATE: Michael Bowden to debut for Red Sox tomorrow evening!

The Sox have announced tonight that tomorrow evening's starter will NOT be the erstwhile-discussed David Pauley; rather, we of Red Sox Nation will at long last be treated to the major league debut of sizzling hot prospect MICHAEL BOWDEN.

Bowden is a simply smashing specimen after whom I've been pining since Spring Training. His 22nd birthday is coming up in just 2 weeks (!) and he's been excellent in Portland thus far this year, posting a 9-4 record with a 2.33 ERA in 19 starts. The 6'3", 215-pound righty [Ed. note: yee, I could get down with that] has an Okajima-like finish and excellent control along with a low 90s fastball and a nicely developing curve. Add to that 101 batters struck out in 104.1 innings, and, well, DAMN. Let's take another look, just for good measure:

Yowza! Welcome to Fenway, Michael. I can't wait to see you pitch tomorrow night!

And just look who it is:

Aaaannnnd the Sox just won, 8-0. What a night!

Sizzling hot prospect?

When did MH turn into Babes on Baseball?

First of all, it's Babes Love Baseball.

Second of all, the "sizzling" is CLEARLY referring to his 4-seam fastball. Duh.

Yeah but he probably only goes for girls who like a nice steak.
