    Crap, I'm stuck at work for another hour. After 6 plus hours at the bar yesterday(4:30-7:15 for the Pats, 7:15 - whenever the tenth ended for the sox) I can't go out again tonight so it's straight home after work to watch the game.


    Actually, Anyone from MA or coming to a Pats game, I hung out at the new CBS Scene at Patriot Place yesterday. Pretty cool place with a ton of TVs and even a couple of huge screens including a diamond vision(or some such) outside overlooking the stadium.

    I really did not want the see a game five in Anaheim of Los Angeles.

    Tampa is a really tough team. It should be a very entertaining series. I wonder when the first fight will be? :)

    Red Sox rep handed out.

    i thought so when watching the replay last night, but it had to be accidental as the catcher's obviously watching the ball, not where Bay's hand is.

    It'll be interesting to see what the Sox do with the pitching rotation. I can't see them pitching Dice-K in game one. I'm thinking Beckett, Lester, Dice-K.

    Seriously. That was the most un-Beckett-like performance ever. I don't think he'll have a repeat of that, though. He's a good seed.

    My vote: Beckett (Game 1), Dice-K (Game 2), Lester (Game 3)

    I'd rather see Lester go in game two so they can bring him back in game five. He'll be on full rest for a game two start. No point in holding him back a day.

    As long as Dice-K goes for the away games. Tito won't go against the stats.

    And please, let's keep Timlin on the Bench.

    they are saving either Timlin or Schilling in order to drill Manny if the opportunity arises.

    The Sox have set their rotation:

    Game 1: Dice-K
    Game 2: Beckett
    Game 3: Lester
    Game 4: Wakefield

    Slightly optimistic.

    If it were the Phillies and the Red Sox, I would love to see Schilling pitch against the Phillies. He is such a fvcking loud mouth twat.

    Heh. I was hoping Beckett-Lester-Matsuzaka. What they've got is fine though.
