(Temporary) Joy in Beanville

Well, nicely done Big Papi. No delusions here, as I read somewhere that the statistical odds of the Sox coming back to win the series stands at something like 4%. But I guess this is why baseball is so enduring and magnetic: with Pedro and Schilling going in the next two one can always dream.

On to game 5!

  • The bottom of the 12th is what we call an “expected outcome.”
    After Quantrill got squeezed on two calls (how bad has the umpiring been? seriously) against Ortizzle I figure he’d have to pour one in and voila.
    With all the work both bullpens put in last night, Mussina and Pedro are going to nailed to the mound.
    As much as I hated last night’s final score, boy do I love baseball.

  • Agreed, cheers to the One True Game. And cheers to Pedro Martinez, who may be making his last start in a Sox uni tonight. Thanks, #45. Maybe the Yanks were your daddy (in recent years, especially), but man, have you been a blast to watch for the last seven years.
    Now go get ’em, Pete.

  • Letting the Sox of the hook? Bad Bad Bad. Throw out all of the odds-against-a-comeback crap. The Sox need a three game win streak. How many times did they accomplish this during the season? Not a pleasant thought for Yankee fans.
    But we’re just going to hope last night was yet another case of Sox hopes being elevated (and we know that they are), only to make their dashing all the more painful.
    Let’s have the dagger.
