So I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m not going to live past my 40s thanks to the playoffs. It’s okay, I’d probably be really bored in retirement anyway.
- The Red Sox scored four runs! And this time, they didn’t need a single swing from a certain designated hitter to do so. I approve. (Sox hold on in ALCS Game 5, pull within one win of the World Series)
- Until Game 5, the Red Sox had led in only four innings of the ALCS. Yet the series was tied 2-2. Boston just finds ways to win, and does it often. (Sox are showing Tigers many routes to victory)
- Remember those times when we worried about the bullpen in the regular season? That’s almost like ancient history at this point. (Red Sox bullpen the postseason MVP)
- Fourth time’s the charm, right? Because it took four tries until Koji Uehara got a shot. A few splitters and high-fives later, he’s a legend and then some. (Koji moves Sox a win away from Series)
- Other than last night, the Tigers’ rotation has been dominant. The Red Sox have to lean heavily on their starters to keep up. (As Tigers Rotation Dominates, Pressure Falls On Shoulders Of Red Sox Rotation)
- Could this be the beginning of a great many things for Xander Bogaerts? The kid has been marvelous this postseason, and he’s welcomed us all to the Xander Zone. (Red Sox insert Bogaerts into starting lineup, signaling start of new era)
- This is the kind of humor that we basement-dwelling saber nerds love. (Parks and Recreation made a sabermetrics funny)
Mike Napoli just took batting practice. There were no survivors.
