« Some Sort of Homecoming - Rays Run Over Sox, 9-1 | Main | Best...Comeback...Ever -- Papi Be Back - Come On Pap - J.D. Has Our Back »

October 15, 2008



I had the same click about Dice, Beckett and Lester today. I know it's a seven game series, and I know we're in bad shape and not the team of 07, 04 or whatever, but I feel like if we can pull out a good win tomorrow, the series is ours. I think Beckett will rise to the occasion and if we hit a game 7, forget about it, it's ours...

I think we're both crazy, but it just feels like tomorrow is a game 7, like if we win it, the ALCS is ours.

tomvons, I like what you're spittin' kid.


I agree w/ you both. If Dice K goes out on that mound tonight and pitches the way he did in Game 1 we really have a chance to come back and back door these pesky Rays.

Come On Sox!!!!


Until the last pitch of the final out, I still believe. It's been hard to keep any faith with them looking the way they have, but I'm taking it one game at a time. A win tonight is huge...

Win or go home, same as always...



I agree with your sentiment, but not the order. If Dice-K wins tonight (which is feasible), then I would pitch Lester in game 6 on normal rest. Lester has been pitching way better than Beckett lately, and if it were not for two home runs, his last outing was decent. Have Lester pitch game 6, and give Beckett an extra day of rest and have him go game 7. That should get Beckett's heart rate flying!

You know what Rational, I think I may have to agree with you on that one. I almost would fear for Beckett's health if he had to pitch a Game 7! Either way, we're in one game at a time land now...we'll see how Dice holds up.

If he doesn't have a good night though, beware the jackles.


You're delusional.

Game over.

Now you know what I've felt like as a Yankee fan since 2004. Rooting for a team that once they get punched in the mouth, they dont get up. No Rocky here.

Take solace in knowing that at least Yankee fans care about what the Sox are doing now. It used to be we didn't even pay attention. We def pay close attention now. VERY CLOSE. I was rooting for the Rays almost as hard as I would have rooted for the Yankees had they been in the ALCS. It's fun to root for a winning team again ha.

Looking fwd to future battles.

Rays = Eriks second favorite team from now on. And another one off the wall for upton. WOW.


I absolutely can not believe what has just occured. Even if the Rays win this game(which I doubt now that it is a tie game going into the bottom of the 9th) I will go on record in saying that that was the WORST managing I have EVER seen in my life by Bill Maddon. EVER. I cant stress it enough.

Dude... you may be watching the impossible happen again if you win this game. I'm stunned and nauseous.


Have fun in the world series. I'm not even watching baseball again until next season. My 30th B-day will surely be ruined.

Oh... and I have to eat crow. You're NOT delusional. Cus it's entirely possible with Beckett and Lester going. Have fun watching. No way I'm subjecting myself to it.

  • Bar & TV's and Boston Dirt Dogs had a playoff push party at Game On! in Fenway Park on September 19. The game didn't go so well as the Sox lost, however, a lot of people had a good time hanging out while getting to "meet" the trophy!

2004 World Series: Game One

  • Mounted Police
    My brother Chris flew into Boston from Chicago to help me root on and pull for the Sox in the Series. We went right from Logan Airport to the Park and ended up watching the game across the street from Fenway at Bills Bar on Landsdown Street. We looked into scalping tickets but standing room only were going for $1,200 and up!This was a great and memorable day to be able to be with my brother in Boston to see the Red Sox in the World Series. This is a snap shot of two weeks of my life that provided a lot of sorrow, joy, sleep deprivation, and hangovers. Two of the best weeks of my life...
