This is going to be the year! What better match up then Pedro and Clemmens.

Let's hear everyone chant - LET'S GO RED SOX!

That was amazing. I am ready to believe but although I have my fingers crossed I don't want to jinx it.

Gotta hand it to the bombers too, what a perennial gang of hard cores. Fantastic series, the best of baseball, the worst of baseball the other day as well, but despite such moments it's a contest worthy of champions and no one could come out of this a loser even though either fan base will crucify the one who does not come out statistically on top.

On to game #7... what a series!

What a game!

I arrived home to see the bombers down 4-1 and Pedro looking unstoppable. Things sure can happen fast in this game!

And then there was Grady!! I can see letting Pedro continue, but to leave him in with two on and Matsui coming up- What was he thinking!! The pen has been on fire he should have given Pedro the hook and the win....

No doubt about that, I felt they could've enjoyed a lot more pride among the whole team from the win then any one player's pride could ever justify in preserving.

But I hope the city celebrates how far this tough gang of gritty, never-say-die warriors got this season, most cities didn't have the honor and privilege of having a group like these guys digging it out for pride of ol' Beantown.

Thank you Red Sox, you are "the balls".

People keep saying it was a mistake in keeping Pedro in so long...My feeling was that the real mistake was putting Wakefield in... he is a great starter... but his Knuckleball does go south on him... and the team can handle a couple homers early in a game... to put him in with the Yanks last up and the unpredicability of that Knuckleball... My fear was that someone would homer against him and the knuck turned into a meatball that evem Boone could hit.I would have kept Timlin in for an extra inning and then go to Wakefield as a last resort...

THE CURSE OF THE BAMBINO LIVES ON!!!!

If you didn't believe in curses before I'm sure you do now. I feel bad for you RED SOX fans. Everytime it looks like they are going to win they always find a way to lose.
