How can you really describe this team at this point? If there was a word that combined excitement, love and admiration all into one, that would be just the start.
- The longest 5th inning ever. Blowing a 7-2 lead. Beating Mariano Rivera in the 9th, and the Yanks in the 10th. Last night had no shortage of wild moments. (Red Sox rally vs Rivera, then beat Yankees in 10th)
- Pinch-runners don’t get a lot of publicity. But in a town that was seemingly defined by a stolen base just 9 years ago, Quintin Berry can’t wait for those moments. (Berry hopes for more ‘Dave Roberts moments’ with Sox)
- Through thick and thin, Craig Breslow has been there for the Red Sox. Sure, the bullpen might not inspire trust, but he sure does. (Breslow’s steadiness, versatility prove welcome additions for Red Sox bullpen)
- Is he finally back? Jon Lester, after being predicted to bounce back for so, so long, might have actually returned to his former self that we know and love. (Jon Lester’s velocity is back, and so is he)
- David Ortiz has built himself into a Boston legend, much like a blast from the past, Larry Bird. What does it take to reach those lofty heights? (The Tale Of Two Boston Sports Icons)
- He’s gotten healthy. He’s gotten his control back. Hell, he’s even gotten himself a second daughter. So you know Clay Buchholz is ready to return. (After 3rd rehab, Clay Buchholz good to go)
- This never happened, but boy, that would’ve been something to see, huh? (Larry Lucchino to go after Randy Levine if a Sox-Yankees brawl breaks out tonight)
