Josh Tomlin's playoff performance is the most surprising thing I've seen in a long time. He kinda stinks.
I was away at the time, and I guess it doesn't matter now. But was that the right time to pull him?

Great job Allen. I think I found the Cubs bar in seattle. There was a collective groan. I clapped and cheered in response. Thanks beer

There really wasn't a need to pull Tomlin in the 5th with 2 outs and a runner on 2nd with Montero coming up. It's a new world when a starter can retire 14 of 17 batters, not allow a runner to reach 3rd and get pulled after throwing 58 pitches.

why no miserable cubs fans faces? whenever red sox fans were miserable, Fox couldn't take its cameras off their miserable faces.
I agree. I've been watching this game since the 3rd inning, and I don't think I saw one unnecessary replay of Leon Durham letting a grounder go through his legs. We'd have seen at least 20 Buckners in that amount of time, plus a few Bucky Dents.

Plus a few Enos's and Boones

So a runner picked off in a first and third situation, running into an out at third with one out, playing a fly ball into a triple, bases loaded GIDP, stealing an out from Shaw against Schwarber, a move that had even Smoltz cringing....and yet the pitching was elite enough to preserve a 1-0 win in the first WS game at Wrigley in 71 years. It might just be Cleveland's year.

yeah, but then there were 3 passed balls by Varitek in one inning in a game and they won anyway...really harshed FOX's mellow.

I'd pay big $$ for a game 7, but baseball is too much of a crap shoot. I wonder how many fans on the way out muttered .. "I just blew $2000"

Their pitching really, really has been shut down 90% of the time so far this October. Tough to break through.

I don't think I'll ever forgive FOX for showing the montage of miserable Boston fans during the middle of the 9th in Game 4, set to U2's "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For".

I enjoyed that knowing the sox were sweeping Joe Buck and Tim McCarver's cardinals. Suck it!

Edit- Oh, THAT game 4. Everything after that was gravy
