    I would like to ease WAY the fuck off on my Cora bullpen criticism in game 1. Wright is a game changer.

    I think we all do.

    Velazquez would be my pick to replace.

    Leon is the player of the game.

    Agree. I'm 61 and I have had mild shortness of breath thinking about this. Probably mild panic attack. I just want to beat these guys sooooooo bad.

    Gammons is making me LOL "I don't care for the Yankees" isn't a great 2-word chant, so we shall see.

    Perhaps this is the lesson you need that you don't actually know everything going on at the park and that THIS FUCKING MANAGER KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING and doesn't have to spell all his moves out for you to know he doesn't suck?

    Large sample size and all that, but if 108 wins (now 109) didn't teach you anything about his ability to run this team, I don't know what will.

    Would BP be referring to Bullpen or your Blood Pressure readings starting in the 6th.

    People in my section didn’t want Cora to bring in Kimbrel in the ninth. The thinking was we finally had a pitcher who threw strikes.

    Great game. The only pitcher the Sox did damage was Happ, the supposed Sox killer. I can’t believe Hicks didn’t get anywhere near Mookie’s double.

    Yeah seriously. I was 23 in 2004, 37 today. Luckily my sister is getting married today so I didn't really watch game 1 and won't really watch game 2. Better for my BP.

    Yeah, I felt so sick last night after the sixth inning I had to stop watching, take 1/2 a clonazepam, a hot shower, and begin re-reading my favorite novel to calm down. I may not be able to watch any of these games in toto, but that's why I have a DVR. This bullpen is reason enough for DDski to take a long, hard look at himself.

    You people are amazing. It's playoff baseball. It's intense and gut-wrenching and it's why we're fans.
    Scream at your tv, drink a little whiskey, find a lucky position on the couch. But damn, just enjoy the damn ride and hope for the best.

    What if you can't drink for medical reasons? I was longing for a drink last night and I can't drink. Have a little empathy, for pity's sake. Alcohol must help immeasurably. No wonder most Sox fans seem to be drunk most of the time.

    Have a big bowl of ice cream or a some delicious pie. Or some great French fries. Anything comforting. Find your happy place.

    Exactly. As much I’d like the Sox to beat the MFY 18-1 every game and stomp them in three, this is more fun. Well, maybe not more fun, but much more exciting. And it’s exactly why I’m glad we’re playing the MFYs not the As. Nobody goes to Disneyland for the A-ticket rides. Enjoy the roller coaster.

    Mookie’s double was high off the wall. That’s the way announcer Brian Anderson described at and I just relooked at it on my DVR and it was. Hicks did the right thing; get too close to the wall and it could bound away from him toward the infield and Mookie has a triple.

    Btw, the bullpen just came in. (Last night's game is now on mlbn, in an abbreviated version.) Brasier gives up the single to Babe Hoit to score the first nyy run. Ugh.

    Honestly, it could be in a chair, or the floor, or standing up. But it's there somewhere.

    It's more complicated than that. It can change every few innings.

    This is why I watch these games alone.

    And they pooped on my deck.

    There better not be any autocorrects in this.

    As I recall, you said it would be best if there were not joint-game threads because of what you might say there.

    Now I really wanna know.

    I would like to sign this resolution.

    Word.

    Let's use different pitchers tonight! ;)

    ...or can I?
