It's as on as it can possibly be. Jose, you need to do whatever it is rabid psycho Sox fans do to remain calm, post your keys and go P&G like with the I am unoriginal and unfunny. Please put me out of my misery. Go Japanese on someone dude, it's there for the taking.

Awesome game tonight, Curt! A gutty performance on the mound, keeping the Indians' batters off-balance without your best stuff. And of course, it doesn't hurt to have one or two or ten runs to work with.

ONE MORE WIN! (and then four more...)

On the West Coast tonight, I went out and drank with blissful abandon after an ass-whupping for the ages, knowing that the game I truly wanted to see would be played on Sunday night, by a team that is doing exactly what I hoped it would.

Just win!

I'm feeling some Thomas Paine I am unoriginal and unfunny. Please put me out of my misery. He rallied the colonies in a desparate times despite not always succeeding in life. 46 pages of his ink sparked an entire countryside to win the struggle and in the end, the movement he helped create birthed something monumental. Daisuke Matsuzaka is Thomas Paine. A foreign newcomer who has had rough times this season, but tonights game will be his "Common Sense." Matsuzaka's "46 pages" will be 7 innings of brilliance. It will be closed out by Jonathan Papelbon, acting as Sam Adams, the crazy guy who had it right, who will usher this team to the World Series.

These are times that try men's souls. The Cleveland Indians and the Boston Red Sox will, in this game, shrink from the service of their league; but Matsuzaka who will stand tonight, and deserves the love and thanks of Red Sox Nation.


"I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death." - Thomas Paine

Daisuke, a nation peers their eyes upon you. Do not shrink. Remain Strong. Do not fear. Stand firm. Trust Yourself. Win.

Drew, Lugo and even Gagne gained some redemption last night.

Daisuke does the same tonight...and then some.

Also: Is there any shot that the mashers at 3 and 4 will have another game with one hit between them?

Cleveland, time to order up a giant vat of some of some of this:

Reeeeeaaaaally nice one last night, big guy, but after the break in protocol, shouldn't Daisuke have started this thread to really keep the I am unoriginal and unfunny. Please put me out of my misery going?

After Tuesday night, I kept telling all the MFY fan-dads: one more game, that's all I ask, one more game.

After Thursday night, I kept telling all the MFY fan-dads: one more game, that's all I ask, one more game.

And after last night, I'll be telling all the MFY fan-dads today: one more game, that's all I ask, one more game.

In the immortal words of Big Daddy, "Why Not Us" bitches - one game at a time? Next game is up - KICK ASS DICE-K - your time for redemption is now.

GO SOX - WIN TODAY!

Forty-four years following this team on a pitch-by-pitch basis.

This is the fifth opportunity that a Red Sox team is this close to an American League championship. The other four teams sealed the deal.

It's time for this team to do the same.

I believe.

It is so on.

THE MYSTERIOUS NUMBER SEVEN
The Japanese people appear bewitched by the number seven -- much like the rest of the world. The West, for example, had its seven wonders of the world. Rome, it is said, was built on seven hills. Medieval Christians counted seven deadly sins. In the age of discovery, explorers traveled the seven seas. The modern world revolves around a seven-day week. People still say they are "in seventh heaven" when they are extremely happy (a phrase that originated in Dante's The Divine Comedy).

The mystery of number seven has enraptured the Japanese as well. Ancient Japan was founded around seven districts. In Japanese folklore, there are seven treasures and seven deities of good luck (the topic of this story). Japanese Buddhists believe people are reincarnated only seven times, and seven weeks of mourning are prescribed following death. The list goes on and on -- the seven ups and eight downs of life, the seven autumn flowers, the seven spring herbs, the seven types of red pepper, the seven transformations, and the popular 7-5-3 festival held each November for children, in which special Shinto rites are performed to formally welcome girls (age 3) and boys (age 5) into the community. Girls (age 7) are welcomed into womanhood and allowed to wear the obi (decorative sash worn with kimono).



Obviously, Dice K will pitch 7 strong innings tonight in game 7 and lead the Sox to victory.

I swear to go no matter what team Millar plays for he'll feel like he's on the Sox.
And I have to say I'm down with that. After he retires I vote that he gets to replace or at least join Wally as team mascot.

I had a picture in my mind of G38 bolting up in bed at about 5 this morning and screaming, "I gotta go start the game thread." I'm guessing he was up late rather than early, but either way, cool. (Insomniacs, Unite.)

Go Sox. A Game Seven on a day like today makes life worth living.

Ain't no way in Hell this thing wasn't going seven after the Sox went down 3 -1. None.

Memo to the Grounds Crew:

The Sox play nine innings(possibly more).
They win the game.
There will be a moderate amount of celebrating.
Then, and only then, you can paint the logo.

Thanks in advance.

We all knew the Sox were going to win Game 7 in 2004, and I have that same sense of confidence tonight. I have no clue what the game will look like (slugfest, pitcher's duel, or blowout), but the Sox are going to do this. Beckett (especially) and Schilling deserve to pitch in the World Series.

When the Sox win tonight, Beckett will be announced as the MVP of the ALCS.

But others receiving strong consideration have to be:

G38
Papi
Manny styling Manny; and last, but certainly not least,
J.D. "curtain call" Drew!!

WIN!

For centuries, the Japanese have referred to their distinctive spirit and character as Yamato Damashii. Yamato is written with ideograms that mean "Great Peace," and is the old word for Japan. Damashii means "heart" or "soul". Put together, they refer to the traditional spirit and personality of the Japanese. Today it is used by marital artists as a way to show their fighting spirit.

It has also drawn comparisons to the Samurai spirit. A Samurai will never die on his back, because he is always pushing forward and fighting for what he believes in.

"The Yamato Damashii Way--where you give everything you’ve got until the very end."

Show us the Yamato Damashii way Daisuke!

Kevin Millar = "Norma Desmond." Only comparison I can think of.

And yes, it's very, very odd that he would agree to do this as an active member of a division rival. But not my concern.
