I’m still amazed over what I saw last night. That’s not something I’m gonna forget for a long, long time, and probably forever. That’s one of those games that stick with you.

  • Look at this win expectancy graph! This is absolutely amazing. The Red Sox had less than a one percent chance of winning. And yet…miracles do happen, on occasion. (Fangraphs)
  • We saw it with King Felix. The Red Sox are getting handcuffed by stellar starting pitching. While it means little in the regular season, it presents a problem in the playoffs. (Top quality pitchers shutting Red Sox down)

WARNING: May induce chills.

    I really hope they keep Johnny Gomes for a while.  He doesn’t even have to put up huge numbers  – I just want him there. I hope he becomes the Kevin Millar who years later you see sitting in the dugout long after he’s left and it doesn’t seem weird. He’s got a little bit of Millar and a little bit of Youk, with a little bit of Manny’s random craziness thrown in for good measure (the GOOD parts).

    And. Stephen Drew is such a Drew it’s not even funny.  The Drew children must have been taught that any show of exuberance is the Devil’s work or something.

      New Lyndsay I believe if anyone was the first to reach true nirvana, it would be either J.D. or Stephen Drew
