Do-Over: Sox-Rays ALDS Gamer IV

I suppose I was kinda asking for it with the thread title and the Koji-fawning yesterday. If you believe in that sort of thing. I do not. What I do believe is that Peavy will pitch better than Hellickson tonight, though I would expect Moore and Archer to be ready to take over if Hellickson gets in trouble early, which he probably will because the Sox are pretty awesome at the bounceback. I expect the offense to be better, I expect the defense to be better, and I expect the Sox to win. That’s pretty much it. Comment if you got ’em.

  • This has been (and continues to be) a fantastic season, but I will admit that some of the shine might come off if they end up losing this series (though again, I expect them to close the deal tonight–my prediction for this series, though I didn’t say it here, was Sox in 4, and we’re right on pace). I can handle losing (though of course it will suck) in any subsequent round, but I hate the Rays sooooooooo much.

  • Pedey sac fly…3-1…so…very…close. And yet another fucking pitching change for Maddon….after secret weapon Archer, he’s bringing out double double secret secret weapon Wesley Wright for Papi.

  • I do believe I can honestly say I will only look back on this season with minimal regret if the Sox lose going forward.

  • Yesss, we did it! Sorry I couldn’t thread last night. Lots of good stuff. Peavy was great, Breslow even better, not forgetting Tazawa, and then there’s Koji of course.

    Loved how Victorino kissed the crowd goodbye. Happy not to have to listen to the TBS idiots again. And I assume Joe Maddon will get complimentary tickets to watch games 1 and 2 of the ALCS at Fenway since Boston is so lovely this time of year.

    I want it all now, of course, but I agree, a loss to the Rays would have been a real let-down. Now it definitely is a great season, no matter what happens.
