Default ALCS... anyone still care??

I DO!!

Tonight I'm supplementing Beckett's natural dynamite with the kind of luck you only get by roasting a stout and brown sugar glazed ham ...

My cousin and I roasted a ham for game 1 (cranberry maple glazed), and look where that got us! If I had any sense, I would have roasted one every game since. Ham is a lucky meat.


Also thinking about doing some beer battererd fried pickles, whatever it takes to bring this party back to bean town!!

I have a sneaking suspicion that I'll be consuming heavily tonight...

Beckett will bring the series back to Boston. Then we'll pray that Schill & Dice-K can give us quality starts.

Beckett and Shill can win against anybody. Dice-K, you don't have the same confidence - but Game 7s are always a crapshoot.

Hell, we're in a better position that we were in 2004! This team is still very much flawed, but I wouldn't start printing World Series tickets if I were Cleveland, you know?

yeah I dont know, if we slump out tonight I dont know how well im going to take it, but as a precautionary measure, im dragging my MLT into the living room to use as an actual cooler for immediate access.

I think this game is going to be a pretty easy read early on, either 1-2-(3)-(5) are gonna start hitting or they wont, especially pedroia.

I'm watching the game, but mostly just to see the Sox lose.

Go Rockies!

It's been a pretty good series even if a little one-sided so far. I'm a little torn on who to pull for in this. One one side, I'd like the Indians to do well. As a White Sox fan, I'd like to see my division take the AL crown for a third year in a row. Additionally, the Indians have the the 2nd longest WS droubt next to the Cubs, so it would add a little salt to Cub fan's wounds; and that always puts a smile on my face.

On the other hand, my BIL is a HUGE Red Sox fan, so he's got me to the point where I do like the team.

Really, I just want a good series. This is, the REAL World Series afterall.

It all comes down to run support.
As for Dice-K he is a great pitcher. If he got the run support that Josh and Wakefield garned during the regular season he'd be at 20 wins easily.
