    It's going to be midnight. I am still wondering why in the world you use Brian Bass in a scoreless game. Bass has not pitched in awhile, and to use him in that role is putting him in a position to fail. It was easy to second-guess tonight.

    Tek! I concur. You forgot to mention all defensive gems are also coming from the right pitches Tek called.

    Wait, Okajima gets us out of a jam, Papelbon blows away everybody in the 9th 1-2-3, Manny hits a game winner? Is it 2007 again already?

    Don't jinx it Sean.

    Possibly…or it's just that we're playing at Fenway.
