Schilling was incredible. Again. If he never pitches again, he is already a God in Boston. I liked the "K ALS" on his shoe tonight. He should have thought to do it last time, though; Fox didn't show the blood nearly as much as they did in the LCS.

Varitek, Bellhorn and Cabrera all got big hits. All three of them are free agents after this year. That's the way to make your case for some big money in the offseason.

Mueller made three errors. He's also a free agent. That's not the way to make your case.

Can we just sign Keith Foulke to a lifetime contract and be done with it?

Paul, bleeding profusely, climbs onto Booker T's shoulders and dives into the second row- landing shoulder first onto the fixed chairs, getting more hardway color from his quickly sweeling upper lip. 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.

I'm not unconvinced that wasn't the exact same sock he wore in game six. When they showed a close-up of it, it didn't look like the color the spot would be if it was blood that had just come out; it looked a little bit darker to where I thought to myself, "if it were fresh blood, the stain wouldn't be that color".

Not that I mind, since he's 2-0 wearing that thing.

Naaah. Blood that old would've turned brown since NLCS Game 6. Schilling's sock's stain (say that 5 times fast) was still nice and pink; ergo, it was fresh. (God, I sound like Foley talking all scatological from his first book.)

Plus, the stain on his sock last night was a bit smaller, and differently shaped.

But we should probably hear from some experts. Where are you mid-90's ECW fans? :-)

How are they winning with four errors per game?

Not that I'm complaining, but it doesn't exactly inspire confidence. I find myself looking away when the Cards come up to bat.

Do you start Ortiz at first? That's scary, but so is leaving him off the lineup. Maybe move Bellhorn to third and put Pokey at second, with Mueller available as a pinch-hitter? That would shore up the defense somewhat, as well as having more than one good hitter on the bench (Mueller and Mirabelli).

I hate the National League.

I agree on hating the National League rules. However, you don't go double pitcher spot by putting Pokey in the line-up, and you actually would weaken the defense taking Mueller out and replacing him with Bellhorn. Mueller had some awful plays in Game 2, but he also made some very nice plays on rockets to end the first and second innings without damage being done. And, except for Game 2, Mueller is a steady/above average glove at 3rd. For an example of Bellhorn at 3rd, see Boston at Toronto in May. He was so bad that Youkilis was called up the next day because Bellhorn was such a disaster.
And, being the eternal optimist I always am, why do I just have that bad feeling that the baseball gods have a really warped sense of humor and will let the Red Sox jump out 3-0 as a prelude to disaster?

How did they decide home field advantage. Was it because of the stupid allstar game?... St. Louis went undefeated at home last round, they will have to do the same to have any chance of winning this.

Yep, and before that, it was rotated yearly. This would be the AL's year for home-field advantage anyway.

Well, the Sox have taken a stranglehold on the series. Pedro (former Expo) pitched an incredible game. The defense didn't fail them despite the fact that the no DH thing hurt them.

At least the Cards can look no further than their opponents that it IS possible to win four in a row.

And when it comes to Red Sox Nation, history does show us that there is cause for no celebration until it's all finished.

Wow...one game away from Red Sox Nation completely becoming unglued.

But yeah, SOMEONE has to say it. Imagine the irony of the Red Sox blowing a 3-0 lead to lose the World Series. At this point, I believe ANYTHING can happen.

Also, you can't help but be in disbelief with Jeff Suppan's baserunning. Suppan's name will live in infamy in the annals of Red Bird Nation.

Worst. Baserunning. Ever.

To see fantastic defensive plays from both Manny *and* Ortiz made me jump up from the couch. Un-freakin-believeable.

Hmmmm - what will the effects be from the entire Northeast holding their breath for at least 24 hours? And what will happen if the Sox win 1 more and they all exhale at once?

And I think you can count on the worst baseball announcer in the history of the game to comment on it about a zillion times - because that is not going to interfere with his astute comments on the game - he doesn't have any.

OKay, I am absolutely DONE with Fox. How in the hell, during a World Series game do these asshoats think its a GOOD idea to "interview" Leon, thier Budweiser commercial actor? WTF was that about? And, Joe Buck and Chris Meyers playing along was pathetic.

Fuck Fox Sports.

But there is a BIG difference between Job Buck doing a commercial, and calling a game, and some joke of an actor being 'interviewed' during the game.

Buck was on the local radio and PROMISED he wouldnt say SLAM A LAMA DING DONG if a homer was hit.

Intentional or not, that's kinda funny.



I was bowling last night...was "Leon" in character?

And I still wait for Buck to do that. I have no problem with these guys doing commercials for products; but when the products are such a big sponsor for the game, it gets hard to seperate commercials from the game. Buck just comes of as a shill while doing this. You don't see John Madden plugging Tinactin, ACE Hardware, or his video game six times a night on Monday Night Football, for example.

Yes, Leon was in charector. Joe was like "Lets go to Chris Meyers who is with superstar Leon"

They cut to the two of them, who are surrounded by girls in Budweiser shirts. Meyers is trying to talk to Leon and 'interview' him, but Leon is on the phone handling "Monetary situations".

So, Chris says something about wanting to interview him and he says "Well, you know, it costs 10,000 to interview me" to which Chris Meyers pulls some cash out and says something about only having 8 bucks.

It was pathetic.

I actually thought Leon was quite funny (though the commercial preceding the segment with Leon in the on-deck circle was much funnier) and that Chris Myers was the one who ruined the segment.

Of course, my team was, you know, winning. Think that affected your enjoyment, Stagger? (Nah.)
