    The NY NY thing is fun but whatever controversy its generated is silly and media fueled. I am sure the Sox used it to get "fired up" but in baseball - as you correctly point out - it doesn't really do much.

    The Sox pitched better than NY and got key hits from some guys who few expected to come up big. Meanwhile, I am sure that Stanton was fired up and yet he couldn't lay off stuff outside of the zone. I am also sure that Voit was fired up and yet he looked like he was stuck in the mud all night.

    Talent, and not the feeling from listening to a Chairman Of The Board song is what generally wins out in baseball.

    Though that won’t happen here sadly

    Absolutely. Pearce, Eovaldi, and Kinsler were huge in this series. Props to DD

    Seriously. As soon as that ball was hit I thought there was no chance in hell he gets the out. There aren’t enough words to describe how incredible that play was. Nunez earned a spot on the “Never has to buy a drink in Boston again.” list.

    I still can't believe that Sanchez ball wasn't a HR.

    There's no more baseball coverage on my hotel TV (no MLBTV). I'm completely lost.

    How about a round of thunderous applause for Mr. Matt Barnes? Dude comes on to relieve Porcello in the 6th with the MFY just having scored in the previous inning and taken back some momentum and he proceeds to blow through their 2,3,4 with relative ease.

    I was going to post how I was ticked off at my puppy for demanding to go outside to “piss” in the 9th, ten minutes after I took her outside to shit. (The real reason she wanted to go out was to chase a stupid bunny rabbit that doesn’t have the sense to be afraid of the coyote piss I spread around my yard.)

    But now I can’t post that, because your story’s better.

    Nunez deserves whatever it takes to dull the pain in his knee after that play to end the game.

    My first thought was “ugh, no play on that ball.” My second thought was “shit, that ball could go into RF on the throw”.

    Just an outstanding play all around.

    MLB Network guys pointing out Hernandez fucked us more than the MFY. Harold specifically pointing out the brutal anal rape of 10D.

    Not sure if this has been answered in the next 6 pages - i noticed on a replay that after he caught the ball, Pearce came up looking at 3rd and ready to throw home in case the call at 1st was safe. Heady play. My deduction from that is that Hechavarria rounded 3rd ready to score should weirdness happen at 1st. But ultimately, no, he would not have scored on that play.

    TBS/TNT is so great with MLB and NBA (not to mention the NCAA BB tournament). I wish they did more sports.

    They were under direct orders to keep them in the yard. No FBs in happy places.

    Fathead desperately throwing his arms over his head on that Kinsler double in the third inning is really an underrated great image/moment in this game.

    Before tonight, I would have been good with this, but dude was clutch tonight, and not just the final play.

    Why not both?

    More offense is clearly the missing link.

    As a side note, I have now watched that clip about 10 times just marveling at the play.

    After a few views, I picked up on other things. The direct crowd shots, of course but also the guy in the white dress shirt off to the right of home-plate who is trying to put a whammy on Kimbrel before the pitch is thrown. The woman in the striped shirt holding a baby right in front of whammy dress shirt guy. And the guy in the classic little/sofball league undershirt who shoos whammy dress shirt guy away. Who are these people? And how did that kid get such nice seats at a Sox/Yanks ALDS game?

    Just watched Stanton/ Kimbrel AB again. That strike three pitch wasn't even close, yikes.

    edit-- not even close to as bad as strike two holy shit!

    Rudy Giuliani was back there mimicking Kimbrel's stretch as well. Rudy can fail.
