Sox can only win three more games before they tell them to stop. A few more like yesterday would do just fine. Screw tension, I want solid, pressure-free wins…especially given the news that Peavy is throwing Games 3/7 and Buchholz Game 4.
But today is Game 2. That would be young phenom Michael Wacha vs. old horse John Lackey. Just gotta go .500 for 6 games. But a better winning percentage than that in fewer games would be dandy. Both of Boston’s last two World Series were sweeps. I don’t hold out much hope for that, but the games will tell all. Hold serve at home. Comment away.
