    Houston is absolutely incredible and I can live with them winning the ALCS. They’ve got an excellent rotation with two aces at the top, a great bullpen, and a lineup filled with some of the game’s brightest young stars. I’ll be here with everyone else rooting on our guys but I don’t see any shame in losing to a team like Houston if it goes that way. That said, Go Sox.

    Standard baseball procedure is that you don't even take the slightest risk of making the final out at third. Can see arguments both ways but with the way the ball was going all over the place out of Kimbrel's hand I'm with you - I would have tried to put him 90 feet away. Glad they didn't. (Edit to add last sentence)

    And I only pissed myself.

    That was really funny. Sorry, but thanks for sharing.

    Boone and Stanton are going to get flayed by the NY media this offseason. Yikes

    So MLB Network was saying "what happens if they lose and Sale is not available on Friday?"

    He threw like 13 pitches, isn't kind of like a throw day and he could pitch if necessary on Frifay?

    Love hearing Suzyn Waldman with a post mortem on WFAN. Says CC was bitching about Angel. Yeah well join the club fatman, nobody wanted to see him.

    Someone probably mentioned this, but perhaps the best part of this is the margin of victory was provided by Vazquez and a 1st row HR into that pathetic RF bleacher. I can't wait for Yankee fans to complain about a cheap HR.

    Yeah, I'm ready to talk about the NY, NY thing.

    I like Aaron Judge. Honestly. But blasting that song to troll after you won one fucking game was such a tremendously bad look, particularly now.

    Act like you been there, dude!

    Can Mike Francesa and Chris Russo do a reunion show tomorrow morning?

    Their opening duo-logue the day after 2004 is one of my most cherished memories of that month.

    Both are a predictable, entertaining, wild ride with hyperbolic tendencies, but in the end they get the job done

    Agreed through and through. You get what you get when you don't win after that, even Sheffield agreed.

    I didn't like it initially either - Porcello was cruising, low pitch count, the more innings our ragtag bullpen has to cover the less Cora can switch away fast from someone who's not working out, etc. But the more I considered it... it was really the Belichickian philosophy of, better to pull him one inning early than one inning too late. And in a game like this, that move is the throat-stepping move. Good on him.

    Good series. Sox went to YS with some attitude. This is a really good team.

    I’ll elaborate tomorrow but the MFY are surely missing a piece. Is it the manager? No heart? No team leadership? Really bad D? For a team we were confidently told would be in 4 of the next 5 WS, they were not a threat all year. All year.

    CC is complaining about Angel? When Angel really fucked us over in the 2nd half of the game?

    always a fucking loser.

    Projections don't mean shit, he's goin' or he ain't!

    My brother lucked into amazing seats tonight and claims to have talked shit to Spike Lee after the last out and received a "fuck you" in response. Just texted he's going to chant "WE WANT BOSTON" on the subway platform (this idiot has lived in NYC for a decade, his murder is 100% on him).

    He's living it up at great personal risk for all of us and I love him for it.

    That the Sox payed it after they won also tells you that it helped fire them up. That stuff isn’t as important in baseball as football but could you imagine Belichick if his team did something like Judge did. Why risk giving them even a tiny momentum edge in a series that is so closely contested? It reminds me of when Cleveland brought in Josh F Beckett’s ex girlfriend to sing the anthem.
