It’s one of those mornings, pregnant with anticipation. Lots to talk about, but nothing to say.
The consensus is that the Angels are too banged up to beat the Sox. No Matthews, Guerrero as DH, no Colon. History — the amazing 1986 ALCS, the 2004 sweep capped by the first of Ortiz’s three postseason walk-off hits — also is on the Sox’ side.
The problem is anything can happen. Beckett has an off night, while Lackey doesn’t. Matsuzaka has a September-like start, and suddenly the Sox are down 0-2 and needing a repeat of 2003.
So, use this thread to speak what’s on your mind about the upcoming Sox-Angels series.
