2004 was obviously satisfying and cathartic. 2007 was a dominant team. 2018 was the best ever. But that 2013 team and their run through the playoffs might have been the most fun of all.I find '13 WS so much more exciting than 2004 NOW. But the '04 ALCS is exhausting to watch even today.
I disliked that less than I disliked her commentary. I mean, she missed a few notes and got the phrasing all wrong a few times, but as an amateur singing job I've heard far worse.OK, so I'm combing through YouTube for classic games and decide to settle in for the 1986 ALCS pennant clinching game 7. I've re-watched Game 5 of this series a few times, but never this one. At the time this game aired I was a lonely 15-year-old, a rare Red Sox fan growing up half a world away in Iowa. A curious kid to be sure, but ignorant and naive about the world at large. Anyway, just as I pop open my first beer and prepare to wax nostalgic about one of my first tastes of Red Sox glory, the national anthem gets underway and I see this:
What in the mother of god....?
On the plus side, vintage pre-career-implosion Daniel Bard is now on to bridge to Papelbon in the ninth. That man was filthy when he was going right.Ugh. NESN is showing Opening Day 2011, Phil Hughes v. John Lacking, who never saw his team lead without giving it away.
Now the Sox are facing Boone Logan of the 13.50 ERA. Not the best game.
Yes he was.On the plus side, vintage pre-career-implosion Daniel Bard is now on to bridge to Papelbon in the ninth. That man was filthy when he was going right.
I just watched a few innings of an Eduardo Rodriguez-controlled Chris Sale getting roughed up by Blake Snell and the Rays.
Yesterday, I watched a few innings of a random CPBL game from last year while I did some cooking; today I watched a few innings of the one CPBL game that has now happened this year.I just watched a few innings of an Eduardo Rodriguez-controlled Chris Sale getting roughed up by Blake Snell and the Rays.
But I also just bought a CPBLtv subscription for ~$35. I'm looking forward to supporting the Fubon Guardians, employers of former Sox farmhand Che-Hsuan Lin.
The league starts without fans this weekend, but last night's/this morning's opening game was rained out.
I liked Walker. He hit 5 home runs in the playoffs that one year he was with the Sox. I was surprised they didn't keep him around, but his departure for the Cubs led to them getting Bellhorn the next year.Tonight's victory against the Orioles was from September '03, brought to us by Todd Walker (on NESN right now) and David Ortiz. The 3-run homer by Walker in the ninth to tie the game was lovely.
Seems like Fox has an exclusive on the true HD version of the game broadcast and doesn't let anyone else use it. Game 4 of the 2004 World Series is on MLB right now and it is the standard def (4:3) version.Did anyone notice that this was the letterboxed version that was originally broadcast and I had not seen since, not on the DVD's or any web downloads... looked great for 2004!!!
