Gratitude Day: What a satisfying win last night, my jaw is still hanging open at Dru's grandslam-just can't wrap my head around that one!

But this "not-posting-in-the-gamethread-while the-game-is actually-on" I am unoriginal and unfunny. Please put me out of my misery is killing me. KILLING me. :lol:
Apparently though, it's worked so far. So, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"

Boston Red Sox...never easy!

WIN TONIGHT!!!!!! :lol:

A Jose Melendez tribute post:

"Poor Faust-ee-o"
with apologies to Lewis Carroll

'Twas Schilling and the slithy Tribe
Did flail and falter in their woe.
All rested were our bullpen arms;
The rook was in for Co.

Beware that Faust-ee-o, JD.
The sacks are juiced, pop-flies abort.
Beware his nasty cheese and see
The looming Betancourt.

He took his sleeping bat in hand,
Longtime the big-time hit he sought.
So, stepped out he, for the balls were three,
And stood awhile in thought.

And as we pleaded, "Do not swing!"
Poor Faust-ee-o, his eyes with shame,
Sent whiffling fastball lacking sting.
JD would make his name...

One, two! One, two! And through and through!
That long-dead bat went pow and smack!
He sent it high, into the sky--
It was not coming back.

And thou hast slain Poor Faust-ee-o.
Come to our arms, you well-paid boy!
O frabjous day! Calooh! Callay!
We chortled in our joy.

'Twill Dice-K be, then Wake for three,
If gyro has not he.
Still rested are those bullpen arms,
Save Gagnes, glory be!

Of course I want the Red Sox to lose tonight. But I am betting BIG on the RS, so I win either way. Push comes to shove my desire to make $ may even overwhelm me and I may end up rooting for the RS.

Here's to a big night from the captain. And here's a personal recollection of my longtime favorite player, Jason Varitek:

Posted Image

May 1993, from a Georgia Tech baseball game. I was six when this picture was taken, playing for my first little-league team, the Royals (2 in the park homers that season). Back then he wasn't yet playing for my favorite MLB team, he was merely the greatest catcher in college history on my favorite college team. If I remember correctly, Nomar is somewhere off to the side of that picture, and Jay Payton was also on that team. They had some success later on as well. The autographed ball I'm holding is still on my bedroom shelf.

Posted Image

Fourteen years later, I'm the one on the Tech baseball team and he's the captain of the Sox. This was taken in January of this year, I asked him how he would communicate in game with Matsuzaka. He said he was trying to get Dice to learn at least one English phrase: "THROW STRIKES!" And no matter how much Tek struggles at the plate, he's still my guy, and I wouldn't see him anywhere but the Sox.

So Dice: THROW STRIKES!
And Tek: Take us back to the Series, man. Have a big night!

Good evening, bitches.

Last night really freaked me out. The win itself was awesome, but I experienced this for the second time now: lightning in a playoff Red Sox game, in which something amazing happened.

The first time was WS Game 4, 2004. I was watching the game, in the 8th inning, already imagining what was about to unfold, when thunder struck the power supply in my block, and my lights went out for about 90 minutes. In those 90 minutes, the Sox were world champions. I turned my TV on to see Orlando Cabrera chugging an over-sized bottle of something close to champagne. Note: back then, I lived in São Vicente, and there, power never fails. In my entire life there - until 2005 -, it only happened once.

The second time was last night. Power didn't go out here, but the sky was definitely angry. And about 10 minutes after the lightning started, JD Drew hit a grand slam.

I am freaked out.

The Indians thought they had it in the bag. Hubris is a bitch. The Red Sox, I believe, knew they had to work hard for it. They have and they still do. If they take the same approach, as I believe they will, they will win.

For the Red Sox, the theme of this ALCS seems to be about redemption. For Curt and for J.D. Drew.

The rule of three's must apply: setup (Drew), reinforcement (Schilling) and payoff: Matsuzaka.

Tonight we get the payoff.

WIN.

When we were in this spot in 1986, I honestly had not the slightest concern that we would lose game 7 and, really, did you think we would lose game 7 in 2004? I think it is hard for a team on the brink, as Cleveland was, starting to think about the World Series, to come back and deal with a game 7. If the shoe was on the other foot I would watch that game with great trepidation.

I might watch the game upstairs tonight, but will try to check in once or twice.

So Millar is throwing out the first pitch? Does Fox even show that during its crappy pregame show?

p.s. I can't wait to see Dave Roberts throw out the first pitch in Fenway during the WS...

Lucked out and scored two tickets for tonight (can't believe the ticket office still had them today), and called my dad, who's spent his life as a Red Sox fan in upstate NY MFY country. He's never actually been to Fenway; he dropped whatever he was doing and immediately drove 300+ miles to get here.

I don't want to get too misty-eyed about this before the game begins, but there's some kind of special feeling about being able to take your dad to his first Red Sox game, and having it be Game 7 of the fucking ALCS. Is there any doubt they're going to win?

I believe it's on.

Winning the World Series is simple. Never lose your last game. It's, on bitches!

Did you hear the Indians cut Kenny Lofton today? I kid, I kid.

Kenny has been to the playoffs every year since 1995 except 2000 and 2005. He has lost each time with multiple teams. More importantly he has been on the wrong side of some of the most dramatic chokes in MLB post season history (including the biggest... 2004 MFY). This futility will not end tonight.
