A fine first effort by the Sox. Here’s hoping Pedro and our mini-man Nelson have the charm going tomorrow.
Post-game on WFAN Mike Russo says “the Sox have gone on to lose 5 of the 9 series in which they won game one, so keep that in mind”, as if that statistic has any significance whatsoever to this year’s team, or even to any team at all. The Sox may go on to lose, but I fail to see how winning game one on the road should give us pause. The Angels are good, and I wouldn’t have doubted the Sox’ chances down a game, but I wouldn’t have wanted to lose game 1 with Schilling pitching – what would Russo have said about the Sox if that had happened?
