Talkin’ Baseball: Stayin’ Alive Edition.

Can the Rays stay alive?

Can the Rays stay alive?

Good evening folks. What I’m hoping for tonight is for the Rays to prolong the Series and drag it out to seven. Just like the Red Sox did. Remember the beer commercial that had “man laws.”

I’m thinking there should be some baseball laws, too. The home team should win on Opening Day and the World Series should go seven. And, it would be nice if the National League won an occasional All-Star Game or two.

Anyway, I can tell by the nature of a lot posts that you guys are itching for the Hot Stove Season. It will be here enough. But, we’ve got a World Series to finish.

About Last Night …. Stayin’ Alive.

Here’s the request. Can we not hear anymore comments about choking or not having any heart? Please. After last night, and after the Santana game, it is more than evident this team has enough heart and emotion to win.

What it is lacking is a bullpen and ability to hit consistently in the clutch.

Pedro Martinez showed us all something last night. He’s not the same pitcher he used to be, but his heart is as strong as ever. He somehow found a way to stay out there longer than we all thought. Should the Mets be playing meaningful baseball next week they might need to give Martinez the ball to start Game 4.

He deserves it.
