Haha same. Go Dodgers, I guess. Back to wasting my time watching football!


You can watch croquette!

They have the benefit of having been to the big dance, so now they know what to expect & that'll put LA over the top, some are saying
Wrong
Believe the pundits are also wrong saying Dave R will get a his usual big ovation -- he won't be booed obviously but they won't go crazy for him -- Dave's gotten many big ovations at Fenway, this is the WS tho

It'll be cold 2nite, they're not used to that & will struggle w/it
A Chris-Clayton matchup would've been amazing a couple years ago -- Chris is limited now -- maybe the cold will benefit him -- he's 12-4, Clayton is 9-5 -- the 2 former Cy winners won't go more than 5, by design

still think Chris should be used later in games b/c of that (being limited) -- Eduardo is 13-5 but hasn't pitched in weeks -- mayb Steven W could help if healthy -- Drew P has been called up as last option

LA is very good, they're not 2 time pennant winners for nothing
SOX IN 6 -- it'll all depend on the bullpen

I saw the line. Boston is -135. I can't believe it isn't more than that. Almost a sucker bet if you ask me. Red Sux should be favored by more then that. Well rested with home field advantage. That line really puzzles me.

Oh. And they are just better anyway. Lineup is playing better. Betts is playing out of his mind. Wonder if Machado has extra personal security.

Yep they were the Robins when they last met, in 1916 -- Wilbert Robinson was one of the greats
they set a record that won't be broken this century-+-2 later -- more than 42,000 at Fenway!?!?

I've been to Fenway once and loved it. It seemed like I had been to minor league parks bigger. Very quaint. And a cool neighborhood. Way better than Wrigleyville in my opinion.

We won 3 there last week (Hou)
don't think it'll come as easy this wknd

biggest thing is securing Series on road, coming back on either side of 3-2, it'd still be leaving too much to chance -- LA is still dangerous & can go off anytime

but two solid games so far & yep, everyone has been pitching in -- depth, balance, key players etc -- so far so good for the RED SOX

"On This Day"
2007
Hideki Okajima becomes the first Japanese-born player to pitch in the World Series. The former Nippon Ham Fighters hurler comes out of the bullpen in relief of Curt Schilling and retires seven straight Rockies, including Kazuo Matsui, making it the first time Japanese natives have faced one another in the Fall Classic.

It becomes an endurance contest now -- the equivalent of 4 games in 3 days -- (befitting the season) they'll be zombies out there 2nite, understandably, & if it comes back to Boston the 3 hour jet lag will have more of an impact than usual, for both teams w/the cumulative 4-in-3 effect)

EDUARDO (13-5) -- when he's on he's got great stuff -- good call for tonite
Ian won't join Boone, Bill Buckner, Bucky, Pesky etc in Sox infamy -- If We Win The Series
I knew we'd tie it aftr they took their ace out in the 7th -- Eduardo has that kind of stuff too -- only a no hitter will enable a CG however, & even that...
Watta team, let's go Sox

It'd be interesting if L.A. won the next two games. If I were a betting man I'd say it goes back to Boston with them up 3-2.

Kershaw got lit up. Kind of anti-climactic sine the Sox have been the top of the league since before the All-Star break. Another banner year for Boston, congrats.

But price was great. I think he should have been the MVP. Kershaw just can't come up big when the pressure is on (at least not with any consistency)

glad we were playing them not Brewers PCBob -- Awesome -- beat by 15 the win total of the previous 2 years, setting a team record along the way
Mookie or JD, JD or Mookie -- there's no pick, make em co-MVPs
previously a journeyman, Steve Pearce becomes a monster when putting on red socks -- who coulda forseen that

…..when Mitch hit that 3 run jack Sat nite, you knew a monster dormant the previous many innings, was A-wakened & no EL-A pitcher, ClayK incl, would be safe

Eduardo R became the 1st to pitch on 0 days rest, since Firpo Marberry for 1924 Senators
teams went a combined 18 for 118 in the 18 inning game (read it somewhere)

…..yeah we have the highest payroll -- but none can say that the boys weren't tops in every phase -- depth, balance, speed, power, good bench, good pitching

in short, BOSTON RED SOX are tops in 2018, huge parade/town turned upside down Wed

Saw this thing that said this year's World Series had the worst ratings in a long time. Interesting given that there were two iconic franchises.

Seems the World Series parade got a little out of hand yesterday. One fan arrested for hitting Cora with a can of beer and the World Series trophy was slightly damaged by another can of beer. Some idiot fans in the world...

Wow, Dodgers give Kershaw $93mm for three years. Guess his less than stellar post season record (and that's putting it mildly) doesn't bother them.

His lifetime playoff E.R.A. is just a tad south of 5.

Christian Yelich & Mookie Betts win their respective MVPs. Can't argue with that. Though I was kind of surprised J.D. didn't finish with more votes. That guy is amazing.

Same here -- as great as those two players were this season, JD I thought should've been MVP -- 43 HR, 130 RBI, .330 BA -- #s not often put up --
