Un fucking real.



Good night.

I think that Charles Dickens foresaw the ups and downs of playoff baseball:

" It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way--in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only."

Onward and Upward. We'll get 'em tomorrow!

Well said. I'm exhausted between the Patriots finish and that unbelievable turn. Take 'em though

I fell asleep on the couch during the 7th inning last night and woke up in the 8th just in time to see Benoit throw his first pitch. I thought it was a bad dream.

A couple thoughts though: First, for once I cannot really blame Benoit for this one, it's not as if he could have really pitched around Ortiz. He sort of had to pitch right to him and hope for something not going out of the park. This bullpen meltdown belongs to Veras, Smyly, and AlAl. Porcello was a disaster too. Second, Hunter actually got his glove on the ball as he was going over the bullpen wall and the more stills and replays I see, the more I realize how insanely close it was; had he made that catch, it would have gone down as one of the most epic game-saving catches in MLB history.

Thankfully the next three are here in Detroit. Hopefully we can make use of that home field advantage.

Oh, and Big Papi - I know you like to run early in the mornings when you are in town for games. And I know where you like to run early in the mornings when you are in town for games. Just saying... patch[1].gif

I got home from the airport and turned on the game only to see Hunter go crashing into the wall.

What a disaster that was. my biggest fear going into the postseason and it cost us a game. I guess we should be happy since the pen was solid in the Oakland series for the most part and won us Game 1.





are they at the Townsend? "Nancy Kerrigan" him when he's running past.

Yeah, all the visiting teams stay there. And I've noticed Ortiz likes to really early every morning through Birmingham in a circle around downtown when they are in town.

Last year during an off day of the World Series I was at the park across the street from the Townsend pushing my daughter on a swing and got to meet Brian Wilson. My daughter (who was 2 at the time) was not a fan of the beard. He was willing to push her on the swing so I could get a picture but she wouldn't even let me step away long enough to grab my phone from her stroller. lol8[1].gif

You let Brian Wilson near your 2 year old daughter?

I figured the police station was right across the street and I was two feet away. How much damage could that weirdo do?

FWIW, he came off about 1,000x more normal of a person than he does in any of his interviews or antics. I am convinced that his shtick is nothing but show (and I actually enjoy it). As long as he didn't have The Machine with him, I wasn't too worried.

Of course it is a schtick but there is something to be said for going for that schtick in the first place. And I would be more worried about what could jump/crawl/fall off of him than aynthing he would do!

He looks cleaner than half the BoSox roster who currently appear to be strung out meth addicts. Watching yesterday's game I wasn't sure if Buchholz had showered since the playoffs began.

Buchholz definitely looks like a tweaker but his pace would suggest otherwise.

I lolled.

Watching a Red Sox game is so infuriatingly slow, no matter who is on the mound. The batters step out of the box so often and spend so much time jawing at the umpire and catcher. I was going to say that I don't know how Boston fans put up with it, but when your team keeps putting up winning seasons you're probably much more accommodating.

yesterday's game was actually 3:28 long http://scores.espn.go.com/mlb/boxscore?gameId=331013102 (all the way a the bottom)

game one was 3:58 (which is excruciatingly long for a 1-0 game).

its when the yankees and redsox play (or other grind out teams like toronto, tampa bay, orioles, basically the AL east) that games get into the 4hour territory.

its the playoff coverage thats too long and drawn out.. there's no need for over analysis and pre game coverage that butts into the actual starting time.


game 3 will be a day game 4pm on tuesday.
