Tonight our intrepid upstarts take on the mighty Angels. And coolstandings confirms all our suspicions: we need to overcome the odds to take this series. We’ll be watching*, knowing that we’re rooting for a little engine that could, a wily David to the fleet-footed and aggressive Goliath that is Mike Scoscia’s AL West juggernaut. A series win for the Olde Towne Team would be a boost to upstarts everywhere, proving once and for all that bullies need to be dealt with fearlessly, regardless of the odds. Go Sox!
*the first two innings that is, then we’ll probably fall asleep – we’re old and these west coast games don’t help us fight the battle for rest against our chosen bedding.
