    Matsuzaka, Bucholz, Lester, Beckett = a great pitching staff for the next 5 years.

    Just to add to the sweetness of it, I just picked him up on my fantasy team last night lol.

    4 of the last 6 AL no hitters were Sox pitchers:rocker:

    Wow that was great, I get so nervous watching a no-no, I didn't move for the last 3 innings.

    Also saw Tek becomes the first pitcher to catch 4 no hitters.

    Colon is looking good in his rehab and Schilling should be ready pretty soon. What a sickly deep staff, man. The Red Sox could get their second straight WC with this pitching. Sweet.

    Don't forget Wakefield will always have some good games, and Masterson will be up for a few this year.

    It was quite moving at the end of the game. He's 24. He is gonna be a special one. Amazing.

    The kid was awesome. If he can attack hitters and get ahead early in the count he will not get into frequent trouble like he has in the past with all those walks.

    #95 Jersey

    Lifetime/Hallmark movie within two years, bank on it....
    Look at the talent that has come uo from the farm system in the last few years Paps,Lester, Buchholz (?sp), Pedroia, Ellsbury with Masterson, Lowrie and others in the pipe.. (Hanley Ramirez pre-trade)
    In the past, they would have traded away talent as a quick fix to win the elusive World Series. Remember Jeff Bagwell?? The win in 2004 gave the front office the comfort to not feel obligated to pull the trigger on quick fixes...

    Hah, evidently I was a little caught up in the moment.

    Still gives me goosebumps, what a great story.
