  • how come you didn’t use the picture of manny trying to field his hat while waving at the ball going past him from earlier in the game to celebrate this moment?…after all, it was that play that allowed the ninth inning drama to happen at all… ;)
    tournament time = sox are hot again
    it’s up to you guys to give us something to talk about beyond this weekend…

  • Well, if the ball hadn’t taken that weird bounce past Manny (not sure anyone else could have gotten it either though), O-Cab’s double would have scored two runs. Anyway, I know you’re just kidding anyway, dc, but I felt compelled to throw thst out there.

    I think A-Rod’s doing that by himself ;-)

  • Is manny waiting at home for himself to run around the bases?

  • Paul-SF — The Sox are having a great series after winning the division and you’re thinking about A-Rod? Winning the World Series was supposed to cure Sox schadenfreude.
    Are you saying you wouldn’t take him next year?
    Cleveland pitching is stopping Yankee hitting, not A-Rod.

  • One could make the same point about the Yanks losing two straight and YFs want to make cracks about Manny’s fielding and posturing. I think Paul was answering snark with snark. Maybe you should worry more about the Yanks lack of clutch hitting instead of the guy who was clutch for the Sox.

  • That was an amazing moment. I threw my arms up, my husband, all of Fenway too- we all threw our arms up just like Manny when he hit that ball.
    One more guys and it’s on to the ALCS! Go big Schill!

  • How was paul answering “snark with snark” exactly?
    For the record, im plenty worried about our lack of clutch hitting.

  • It’s called a sense of humor, guys. I think it’s on sale this week.

  • Paul, thats what I assumed. I was just pointing out there wasnt much “snark” in any of the posts.

  • In Manny’s defense of his awkward, almost child-like celebration pictured above, I don’t know that anyone has hit a walk-off with more authority than that one.
    The ball was so far gone — went out of the park so quickly and so deep — that there was no time for an elegant, hopeful Fiskian dance down the first base line.
    That was an instant walk-off.

  • For the record, though I generally don’t like long stares after home runs, there are a few exceptions. Playoff walkoffs are definitely one of those.

  • There hasn’t been much talk of Manny’s “posing” at home plate, and for good reason. It was a monumental, game-winning, walk-off homer of Ruthian proportions.
    In the picture, it’s clear that Manny has quickly turned to face the dugout and his teammates, not Landsdowne Street.
    What a great moment.
