    Re: Sox win

    The Sox are two wins from the World Series. Don't see why it's that crazy to have a thread in here about them, considering that most Pats fans are also Red Sox fans. Some Pats fans are really weirdly anti-Sox, though.

    Hell of a performance by Lackey tonight. Breslow, Tazawa and Uehara too. Total domination.

    Re: Sox win

    Haha, pretty much. I'm good for maybe a dozen regular season games per year, and I try to attend one or two in person when I'm back in Boston. It's a lot more fun to watch once the postseason starts and the stakes are raised, though. Would never claim to be a diehard Sox fan like with the Patriots.

    Hopefully Ortiz doesn't crush him with his steroid strength. Tee hee. Just kidding. David Ortiz never did steroids and is steroid-free currently having a career year at 38 years old.

    Back over here in the Sawk section, it's pretty quiet. There was what, 2 pages of complaining about where the thread was?

    anyway, looks like this is going the full 7.

    A win tonight = a very successful road trip ...

    However ... the offense needs to find a way ... pitchers alone will be a hrd way to a series victory.

    We've won 2 games by virtue of timely home runs ... there needs to be more.

    series is tied but Detroit has it up on us in the stats categories ... they have been playing a bit better.

    The offense has to do something, anything to get a few runs. Hopefully Lester can bring his A game tonight. I am worried none the less. We have to go through their 1-2-3 in the rotation now. The offense has not shown many signs of life yet.

    These at bat approaches by the Red Sox have been significantly better than any other game this ALCS. 4-0. It's up to Lester and some D to send this back to Boston for the close out game.

    OT but how good was that play by Iglesias!

    I don't hate the trade but I would have been happier next year to have Iglesias at short and Xander at 3rd ... use the Drew money elsewhere ... but who knows Peavy may yet be a hero.

    Middlebrooks looks more like a bench option than an every day starter at this point in his career.

    what about Napoli? you were talking about the peavey trade and not doing the deal? if so then you have to factor in Napoli because hes still on the team.

    I don't think he will be here next year ... his price is going up.

    I am all for him raising it to the sky right now ... keep swinging Nap. :D

    What a series so far. This bull pen is freakishly good. 1 more win to get in. Absolutely love this team the way it was built.

    Weird stat thrown out there tonight. The Sox have never won a 7 game series after being tied 2-2. Find that hard to believe.

    Two very good arms going for Detroit, but I like the momentum. It feels like there's just no stopping them.

    so you would have just benched him? :eek: I don't know. I like the trade. you can never have enough pitching. I think they bring him back. he was originally inked to a three year deal.
