    Hey, if it's ok for you to ask Democrats to let the 2000 election go, is it fair for me to ask you to let a play from 8 years past go?

    .


My God I still despise that Maier kid. This series has been great. If the Sox came back from down 3-0 to beat the Yanks and then do the unthinkable and break the curse, there will be [pandemonium in Boston. I'm thinking that they can do it. It's been so improbable so far, and I think that they can keep it up. My prediction: Sox win 5-4 tonight.

I'm also really impressed that the Umps got it right twice in the Bronx. I mean, if I were a more cynical person, I'd say that those calls were so obvious that they shouldn't have been made incorrectly in the first place, but I'm glad that they were overturned.

A-Rod's move was really cheap. I guess part of me feels that you've gotta do whatever it takes to win, but I still think it was cheap. And I'm shocked that the Sox didn't choke in that inning. 25 hours of amazing baseball.

I've got to agree...I've never been the biggest baseball fanatic. More of a football person...

But my Uncle was with the Milwaukee/Atlanta Braves organization in the 50's and he used to tell fantastic stories about the game. This series has just taken me back to his stories...the rivalry, the curse, etc...it's just all very nostalgic.

Great stuff...and "Go Sox!!!"

Game over! Sox win!

And who would have ever believed it would be DEREK LOWE who would shut down the Yankees? What an amazing series and a great game for Johnny Damon.

The moral of the story, once again, is that money can't buy a championship. Joe Buck's quote earlier in the game about the Yankees having $25 million on the mound through the first few innings (Brown and Vazquez) as compared to the smaller salary of a David Ortiz is very telling.

Unfortunately, I really don't think the Yankees will learn their lesson here, either. Anyone else think the Yankees payroll will skyrocket next year?

MLB Payroll, 2004:

1 New York Yankees $184,193,950
2 Boston Red Sox $127,298,500

3 Anaheim Angels $100,534,667
4 New York Mets $96,660,970
5 Philadelphia Phillies $93,219,167
6 Los Angeles Dodgers $92,902,001
7 Chicago Cubs $90,560,000
8 Atlanta Braves $90,182,500
9 St. Louis Cardinals $83,228,333
10 San Francisco Giants $82,019,166

I'm just sayin'.

Congrats, Red Sox fans. One question, though (for someone who watches ZERO baseball): How OLD is Theo Epstein? He looks like he's barely even thirty. Talk about a dream job.

I can't begin to say how great it was to see Boston win this game......

.........but WHY did Francona bring in Pedro?!?! Just to kick dirt in the Yankees' faces? Lord knows who's going to be pitching the first game of the World Series; Cyborg Foot Schilling, Wakefield or (shudder) Arroyo.

My guess would one of Wakes, Pedro, or Lowe. Lowe pitches better on short rest, and he only threw 69 pitches tonight on two days rest. Pedro threw 20 pitches on his what would be his day for side work, so he is a possibility to go as well, but, I would like to see him get that extra day's rest just because. I would save Arroyo for Game 3 or 4, depending on which one Schilling throws. Arroyo's home/road splits were baffling:


G GS W L SV CG SHO IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP BAA
Home 15 13 3 5 0 0 0 75.2 90 61 45 8 24 58 5.35 1.51 .291
Away 17 16 7 4 0 0 0 103.0 81 38 35 9 23 84 3.06 1.01 .214


With the way Lowe pitched Game 7, I wouldn't be afraid to throw him out there at home for Game 1 of the WS. I think Wakefield is too valuable coming out of the pen, and the Sox still have four other Good->Great starters.

To try to keep pace with the Yanks. But it's all for naught because they spend their money on the wrong players (with the exception of Piazza).

Thank god the Sox won. It's been tough dating the Sox for these past few years, but it's finally paid off. What an amazing series.

    It will go 7, but I'll take Sox in 6 anyway because it really is pissing into the wind to pick against the Yankees in a game 7 at the Stadium, especially since it would be Arroyo rather than Wakefield pitching Game 7. Boston NEEDS to be minimum 1-1 coming back from the Bronx though...

    This game just confirmed my belief that the Yanks will win in five. ... The Sox are prime for the taking. I don't really know how they can win even one game in Boston the way they're playing. I don't really want to agree with StaggerLee in this situation, but it seems to me like a sweep is a pretty good possibility.

    To say that the series is over would be wrong, but the Sox are looking cooked to me.

    Originally posted by PalpatineW in post #41
    Last year, I predicted a Sox World Series win within five years. This is the first time the Sox have gone to the ALCS in back to back years since I believe the early 1900's. All of this might be a way of talking myself down from an impending defeat, but I'll remain optimistic, about this season and all those seasons upcoming.

    Guys, it was a fluke last night. The Yankees are in Pedro's head and won't leave. Even if they do win tonight, they still have to go back and try to win game 6 and 7 in the Bronx withouth Pedro and Schilling. Trust me, you don't want Schilling back, it will be another disaster for you.

    The Sox must lose in the most bitter way possible. Coming back from an insurmountable 3-0 series deficit only to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in Game 7 in the Bronx. It is how it must be written.

I think Pedro went to Francona (or called him from the bullpen or something) and said "Put me in or I will kill you while you sleep."

After he got settled in, he was hitting 97(!!!) with his fastball. If there's any way we can do it, we need to sign this guy and turn him into a closer.

London runs into the ring and opens up Booker T's fist and raises it up to his face, as if Booker T was staring into his own hand. London when dives over the turnbuckle face first into the Spanish Announcers table. After the countout, London comes back into the ring and lays Booker T down on the ground while bending Booker's arms and legs and then spins him around.
