Not exactly what I meantNope, NEVER gets old! Not for nothing, but Heidi Watney is pretty easy to look at when she's drenched in Bud Light and Champaign.
It's kind of a funny situation this year. Beckett and Matsuzaka had their extended vacations earlier in the year, so I'd like to see them kept close to slot personally. Lester's young and strong, and doesn't appear to NEED the rest. I'd not be at all surprised to see him get it, though, considering the IP totals he'll hit this year by the end of the (hopefully long ) playoff run.Not exactly what I meant
Question is, with the Rays magic number at 2, should the Sox begin the process of resting their starters now? Or should they try to catch the Rays?
That's what I hope for, as well.I think you hope for the ability to pitch Lester-Beckett-Matsuzaka-Lester-Beckett. If not, I'd take Wake over Byrd.
Splitting in LA would be very good. Winning two would be even better, but either way winning the ALDS in Boston would be very nice.I am excited for tonight but as everyone else trying to figure out how I can stay up for the whole thing. I think a nap is in order but that never happens.
I say its over in 4 - 1 win on the road and 2 back at Fenway.
I hope John can come up big tonight.
Maybe, but I was thinking of the Red Sox alumni who are now in LA. Joe Torre too. He and Francona are friends and a World Series with them each managing one team would be great to watch.I agree....but the true baseball purists would rather see a Red Sox/Cubs series!!
