Observations:

1) Boy, did Wakefield emulate one of his own knuckleballs last night. A gem through the first few innings, rollin' smooth, and then...drops right off the table. Kudos to the Red Sox bullpen.

2) Was that the frickin' "Theme from nWo Wolfpac" I heard the Yanks' Jeremy Giambi coming up to bat to in the 2nd inning or so? Ye gods.

3) God bless picture-in-picture to make up for weird Fox/FX playoff scheduling.

Go Sox!

Kev: Cool, I like Chicago too, dood.



The memories of my family outings are still a source of strength to me. I remember we'd all pile into the car - I forget what kind it was - and drive and drive. I'm not sure where we'd go, but I think there were some trees there. The smell of something was strong in the air as we played whatever sport we played. I remember a bigger, older guy we called "Dad." We'd eat some stuff, or not, and then I think we went home. I guess some things never leave you.

If a kid asks where rain comes from, I think a cute thing to tell him is "God is crying." And if he asks why God is crying, another cute thing to tell him is "Probably because of something you did."

      Giambi is a HUUUUUGE wrestling fan, its one of the things that is always noted about him in any interview. I actually met Giambi a few times and he always will talk about wrestling.

      I have read stories where Giambi was spotted having a beer with Nash and Hall during the Wolfpac days at the WCW Cafe.

"Deep down, we worry that our lives will pass us by without ever seeing the Red Sox win a World Series ... which is what this whole thing is really about in the first place. That's why Red Sox fans are so insanely passionate about our team. We're haunted by the possibility of living an entire lifetime -- 80-90 years, followed by death -- without celebrating a World Series title. That's not a curse; it's an imaginary guillotine that hangs over us every season. We're just waiting for it to go away, that's all.

That's pretty simple, isn't it? Well, it's true. I have made thousands of arguments in this column -- some of them good, some of them bad, some of them insane -- and feel more strongly about the above paragraph than anything else. Blaming Babe Ruth's ghost for 85 years of failure makes for a cute story, and as WEEI's Gerry Callahan likes to joke, the premise put Dan Shaughnessy's kids through college. But it's not true. It's a myth kept alive by writers, columnists, talk show hosts and producers of slanted documentaries for HBO. The only "curse" is that the media keeps bringing it up.

But plenty of sports fans battle similar demons, don't they? What about Cubs fans closing in on the 100-year mark? What about Bills fans losing those four straight Super Bowls, including the horror of the Norwood Game? What about Browns fans losing their team, for God's sake? Who's more tortured than Maple Leaf fans? You think Astros fans have had tons of fun over the past four decades? You think the Bengals and Cavs have been laughing it up?"

Oops, sorry about throwing the table out of whack, folks. I could blame the long link, but instead I'll place the blame squarely on Derek Jeter.

    Where was Jeter's vaunted defense tonight as ball after ball slipped under his glove? You can be sure he takes better care with Joe Torre's balls.

    You're all just jealous that we don't have a castrating ownership that prohibits players from - gasp! - wearing facial hair. (Clearly Steinbrenner has a thing for small boys and as such prefers his players as youthful as possible.) You can take your snappy suits and self-important aura, along with the media fellation and Yankee mystique, and stick 'em right back in your pocket. I rather enjoy rooting for a bunch of "gritty, blue-collar dirt bags." (tm Kevin Millar).

    And the only reason Derek Jeter doesn't hurt himself jerking off is that Tim McCarver is down there on his knees taking care of business for him.

    I shall leave deducing the source of Don Zimmer's hemorrhoids as an exercise to the reader.


Odds are, Nomar Garciaparra would have missed that one too. (Here it comes: "Oh no way you shitfuckassheadsuckmycock!!")

Let's see, Steinbrenner wants his players to look more clean-cut, so automatically, he's a kid-toucher. Yeah, you nailed it on the head. Say, my dad wishes I shaved more often too, you gonna call him a pedophile too?

How the hell could any professional baseball player call themself "blue-collar?!" And how could any fan agree?!

And as for Yankee mystique: That's a by-product of, you know, winning the World Series once in a while.

Anyway, I don't really want to get sucked into this too much more, so I'm going to wait for the series to end to talk any more about it.

One more thing: Wakefield and the Boston bullpen played really well last night.

Yup. Definately hoping for Boston to lose to the Cubs in Game 7. That'd be what, the 5th time the Sox had choked at the end of the series?

And I thought Yankees and Braves fans were annoying.

Well, there goes the sweep. If Burkett wins Game 4 at Fenway the Sox'll take it in 5, but I think this one's going back to the Bronx for a Game 6.

My dad, when he follows baseball at all, is a Phillies fan. Thus, the notion of playing baseball in October is generally strange and confusing to him.

He's also not a pedophile. I take care of that sort of thing in our fam-- oh, wait. Never mind.

If he was going up against anyone except Wells I would have to agree with you. But I just see game 4 being a slugfest and its hard not to like Bostons's chances in a slugfest. I do se NY beating Wakefield and Lowe in 5&6 but I just like the matchup in game 7 (3 will be a blowout).

Yeah keep thinking that. I believe people convince themselves of that because they enjoy bringing up the "curse" crap a little too much and enjoying Sox fans misfourtune.

EDIT: I think the series goes back to NY with Sox up 3-2

A few thoughts:

First: Please, I'm begging the other Red Sox fans on the board. Don't talk shit until we win the series (or, maybe, just maybe, 12 runs up with 2 outs in the 9th of a clincher. Nah, even then I'll still have Ken Ryan flashbacks). For the love of God, we have no right talking shit after 1 game. By now, we should know better. Keep quiet, and after we win the series, then gloat (and hell, I'm greedy. No gloating until after winning the World Series. After the near heart attack with 2 outs in the 9th against Oakland, this team is going to take me away from this world real soon).

Second: Has the Seventh Inning Stretch ended yet? Sure, its no coincidence that the Yankees have scored in all 4 home seventh innings in the playoffs this season after the human rain delay takes the field. Sing the song before the game, or don't sing it at all. If there is a desire to play God Bless America, pipe in a tape of Kate Smith. Its a hell of a lot better. If the Red Sox were smart, they'd bring in Robert Goulet or Jim Nabors this weekend to sing Impossible Dream during the Seventh Inning stretch of each game. Either that, or land the spaceship we won from Oakland in the Division Series.

Third: If I never see Gabe Kapler or Sauercrap in a game again, it'll be to soon. And Jackson has slipped so bad I actually call for him being replaced by 'I'm from Framingham'.

Fourth: If the rest of America and Canada hate the Red Sox and their fans, screw them. Its about time people started hating us. Being the losers that people pitied and mocked was much worse than being hated.




Where's the spaceship? The Mayor promised a spaceship if we beat the A's, and I want my spaceship.

1. I'm not gloating. I'm predicting. I think Pedro and Wakefield have an excellent chance of winning their games, and thus, if Burkett wins Game 4 the Sox will take it in 5. I myself even said that I thought it was going back to New York.

2. I agree with you on that point. The opposing pitcher just needs to realize that he's going to be out there for a while longer and pace himself accordingly. Or bring the fat fuck to Fenway and let Roger, Wells and Mussina deal with it.

3. Sauerbeck only made the playoff roster because of preconceived notions of needing X amount of pitchers that aren't Ramiro Mendoza. I like Kim being off the roster for the LCS, but didn't Mendoza have a great start against the Yanks in the regular season? Kapler's fine. He's not the type of guy to be a leadoff man, but the only guy for that spot is Johnny Damon. He'll be back Saturday and Kapler will do well in right for Game 4. Trust me. Damian Jackson is uberspeedy and a better defensive player than Merloni or Walker. He just can't hit. Lou hits a little better but is slower and can't field as well.

4. I don't think everyone hates us, just Yankee fans and people who get a little sick of Sox fans. Some Sox fans are overanxious with their celebrations and probably should taper off a little, like the morons who overturned cars at Fenway. Deep down, though, I'd say that 9 out of 10 baseball fans in this country are pulling for a Cubs-Red Sox Don't Say It. The 1 is made up of Yankee fans, Marlin fans and Bud Selig. The New York market is the largest in baseball, and Selig can't comprehend the draw of 2 80+ year droughts meeting, with something having to give.

The TV ratings for the Met/Yankee subway series in 2000 were among the lowest ever. If Selig thinks having a NY team in the Series would get better ratings instead of a Cub/Red Sox one then he should leave baseball and go back to selling used cars.

Well, having ONE NY team is different from TWO NY teams. With one, you get the New York market and at least one other market playing close attention; with two, New York is all you get.

Not that I'm rooting against the Red Sox in any way, shape or form, mind you.

I can see your point on that. I think a Sox/Cubs series would still draw more ratings than any other possible combo of teams you could have this time around though.
