It’s been 4 years since the Red Sox were in the playoffs and 5 since they won a postseason game. One streak ends this afternoon for sure (weather permitting); we can only hope the 5-year streak ends as well. I want blood. F*ck the Rays; those scumbags need some payback for ’08.
So it’s time for your stomach to swoop and your head to spin as every game, every inning, every pitch takes on magnified meaning. Savor the fear, savor the joy–it’s October baseball. Comment away.
