I know I laughed heartily yesterday. But the first victory means little on its own: MLB informs me that the winner of Game 1 in the ALDS has only gone on to win 21 of 36 such ALDS series–an advantage, but not a decisive one. And they don’t give bonus points for a rout.
So today’s a whole new ballgame as David Price (who has positively owned the Red Sox in his last few outings against them, including twice at Fenway) takes on John Lackey (who is a much better pitcher at Fenway this year than on the road). Who laughs last today? Who laughs last in the series? It’s sports–we don’t know! Stay tuned and find out. Comment away.
