    Nah not at all. I am just not at all confident that the Red Sox can pull out of this. Not with their pitching and batting where it's been.

    I don't believe in Ryan Howard. How's that?

    Ok, that works. Anyone with the Red Sox you don't believe in?

    I don't believe in jack squat at the moment. :(

    Ah, well. It was a good 95-win season in a tough division and we probably have the AL MVP. We have a lot of good players who'll be back in top form next year, so I can't get too depressed.

    Tie game! Incredible comeback, now going into the 9th...

    EDIT: and Boston wins, and the series goes back to Tampa. Wow. :eek:

    Wow. Just wow. I really didn't think they had it in them after the whooping TB has been putting on them the last 3 games.

    At least there will be no champagne popping tonight.

    Holy &@#$.

    I'd called it a day and gone to bed, but I couldn't sleep and got up and checked the score, just to confirm that everything was done. I cannot possibly describe how much I love Big Papi and the guys.

    Call me a sentimental lonely BoSox fan who has no one with whom to watch the game, but when Papi had that three-run homer, I bawled and screamed and jumped around my living room, probably to the extreme annoyance of everyone in the apartment below us. I have been so despairing because I am the person who believes in the Red Sox and insists that they can come out of anything eventually in my family and circle of friends and when my family started mass-calling me and going "I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS IS HAPPENING!" Yeah, I cried harder than I did when my dog died.

    Well they took a huge step towards proving me wrong. Last night's game was intense. Coming back from being down 7-0 to win was incredible. Nice to see Ortiz get a major hit like that. So here's hoping that Beckett can pull it out and pitch well, something Red Sox starters have not been doing this series.

    I'm cautiously optimistic now. I don't want to jinx them. But they have come back from 3-1 or 3-0 a few times... So TB shouldn't think it's going to be a walk in the park just because they're going to Tampa now. ;)

    Masterson is going to drive me crazy. I wish Francona would have put anybody but him in there.

    I'm glad we fought back and made the series respectable.

    Hats off to the Rays. =D=

    Despite this loss, I think the Red Sox are pretty clearly the best team in MLB for the last half-decade, so at least you can take comfort in that :)

    This.

    And we are in pretty good shape going forward. Catcher is the major concern, but other than that we fairly well off.
