This blog has been up and running for a little over a month, and last night we reached the 200-post and 7,000-comment milestones. I am very grateful for you support. Thank you.-JD
We watched a historic comeback last night. Down seven, the Red Sox blitzed the Rays to stay alive and send the ALCS back to Tampa down 3-to-2. The Red Sox have Beckett and Lester going the next two games, Saturday and Sunday, so it’s not crazy to be thinking they might pull it off again.
Do you believe that will happen or will the Rays’ magic ride continue?
Well, do you think the Rays will close it out tonight? A lot of people are saying if the Red Sox stay alive, that with Beckett and Lester, they might have an advantage in Games 6 and 7. It’s not that unreasonable an assumption.
But, in a surprise move, tonight the Rays are starting Scott Kazmir, whom the Sox rocked in Game 2. Good or bad move?
We could have an interesting night.
Prior to the next game, teammates taped to Victorino’s locker the photo of him running the bases and wrote ‘J. Reyes’ above it.
A slap at Reyes? Of course it was. But, if this irks you, blame Reyes, for it is stuff like this that upsets other teams enough to put the Mets in their sights. Reyes is a good player with the potential to be great, but he’s been given a free reign for the most part about his celebrations and behavior.
Reyes provided the motivation to the Florida Marlins for the season finale in 2007, and undoubtedly inspired teams against the Mets this year.
