RED SOX’S PREVIOUS GAME: Boston 5 vs. Minnesota 2 on 9/28/07
GAME NOTES: We did it. Perservering through numerous late season injuries and a historical Yankees push, your 07 Red Sox battled and bruised and won the marathon. Last night was crazy, and I won’t be the first to start a Melvin Mora Fan Club. We still have won more object to accomplish: homefield advantage throughout the playoffs. Tito will rightfully rest a good portion of his regulars (Ortiz, Lowell, Ellsbury?) but a win would still be nice. And go RoyAAAls!
Note: Expect a full division series preview/breakdown from me on Monday in our tilt against the Angels.
