    WOOOO HOOOO!!!

  3. andy grabia says:

    I. Can’t. Believe. That. Just. Happened.

  4. andy grabia says:

    Where the hell did you get that pic, btw?

    Never in my life did I think I’d see something to top April 20, 1997 (Weight, Kovalenko, and Grier in 1:56 to bring the Oilers back from 3-0 down with less than four minutes left in the third period of Game 3 vs. Dallas).

    Tonight, I did.

    If Beckett can be Beckett in game six, Jon Lester would follow on Sunday. I think we’ve got ourselves a series. Dis ain’t ovah…..

    And LT, you know damn well God hated Boston until October 2004.

    What a great AB by Crisp in the rally inning.

  7. raventalon40 says:

    Amazing. Isn’t that the playoff record then?

  8. Black Dog says:

    Great pic LT but I didn’t peg you as a smoker.

  9. Coach pb9617 says:

    Ew gross.

    You all like Boston?

    The photo is of Luis Tiant, who had the most amazing delivery. He was also a great, great pitcher for a long period but is seldom mentioned among the best pitchers of the 1960s and 1970s.

    I’m not a Boston fan, but have been interested for quite some time about their team building. Solid decisions over several years.

    Can’t believe I turned this off when Dustin Pedroia called for time.

    All you Bosox fans owe me for that. Because who knows what would have happened had I continued to watch.

    …That’s the way it works, right?

    LT: I’ll say Tiant had an amazing delivery, completely turned his back on the hitter, looked out to second base, and then wham! he would throw one of about six different pitches from one of about five different arm angles at a speed somewhere between 49 and 94 mph. One of the most deceptive pitchers ever. Will Ferrell did a passable imitation of it when he recently threw out a first pitch at Fenway, dressed to the hilt in a vintage Tiant #23 uniform.

    From pitching a four-hit, 11 stikeout shutout in Yankee Stadium to beat Whitey Ford and the “world champion” Yankees in his major league debut in 1964, to starting all three of Boston’s wins against the Big Red Machine in the ’75 Series, Tiant had a great run, occasionally interrupted by injury. He was one of a kind.

    Maddon takes a different approach and I like guys who come at things from different angles but I just don’t understand how he didn’t have Howell pitch to Ortiz in that 7th inning; even Miller for that matter.

    Then again, I was savage when he let Pena and Longoria swing away on 3-0 in G1 but he explained that’s how he does things and that’s it.

    That being said, when you saw the look on Wheeler’s face last night you know he didn’t want to be out there. I would’ve went with Howell and brought in Price or Bradford or Jackson for the 9th.

    Not really sure how I see it all playing out, though. If TB can put it all behind them, they’re still in the driver’s seat in a big way. I doubt Beckett’s gonna get healthy enough in the next couple of days and Sheilds/Garza trumps Beckett/Lester.

    The only thing that could change the tide is if Drew gets hot for the next two games and becomes the de-facto Papi.

    Didn’t see the game, I was at a hockey pool. Why did Kazmir get pulled after six shutout innings of two-hit ball? Was it a pitch count thing? Looks pretty bad when the bullpen can’t hold a 7-run lead.

  15. mc79hockey says:

    The Sox strategy of permitting long, long tops of innings, with many runs scoring, finally paid off as they didn’t want to run Kazmir back out there.

    I’m a little bitter that I was at Fenway for G3 and G4 and then watched that one in the office on mlb.tv, having sold my tickets.

    I was mystified by the decision to leave Balfour in too. Papi can’t hit right now and especially can’t hit lefties. With two on and the potential to make it a game…why take the risk?

    We’ll see if this matters – I’m not usually one to believe in momentum and crap like that but it really felt like the Sox just couldn’t buy a break for the first 24 innings in Boston while the Rays were crapping gold doubloons. In the 7th, 8th, 9th, it felt like the luck shifted a bit, like the gods smiled on the Sox once more. Kotsay hitting that ball to Upton, who missed it…Longoria with the error…all of a sudden it turned around.

    Might be an exciting weekend. If the Sox win, I assume I’ll get knifed in Philly. Hopefully it’s after I taunt some Andy Reid lookalike about the Sox taking the whole thing in four.

    Let it be known that IF the Sox fail to complete “epic comeback III” this weekend, I will cheer for the Phillies, because I could not cheer for another AL East team (with the possible exception of the Jays, as soon as they get around to firing that tool Riccardi).

    However, despite an impressive NLCS showing, I fully expect the Phillies to get crushed by the AL representative. Because the junior circuit is flat-out a better league right now…..

    @dorito grande: That is exactly how it works, so thank you!

    Coco’s at bat was a thing of beauty, I was shrieking that it was “positively Valentinian” by pitch nine or so.

    The real worry now though is the scheduling conflict on Saturday. Sox/Rays @7 my time, Oilers/Falmes @9. My head will be exploding no matter how I choose to approach the problem.
