    I agree Bob, Inside if its the same pitch I'm thinking of. The Home Upm has had a pretty wide strike zone all night, both inside and outside pitches. I think Boston better do it now or the game will be over. The Yankees are tired and want to either go Party or go to bed. I feel a little sorry for the Boston fans if they lose tonight for staying up so late. Wonder how many will stay home from work tommorrow.

    He He, Home Run as I was typing. WTG Boston!!! Most likely your only win for the series though

    Jeeze, by the time the people get home it will be about 2:30, then time to wind down and get to bed about 3:30. Then have to get up at 6:00 just like I do (NOT) Man I love affiliate marketing

    Ortiz came to bat and I said I bet he puts it into the right field seats. Should have kept my mouth shut.

    Oh well, the Great Bambino probably fell asleep because of the long game and the curse slid away for awhile.

    But tomorrow THE CURSE IS ON YOU RED SOX FANS!!!!

    Gee, can you tell I'm originally from NY???

    The UMP who called the balls and strikes today was horrible. He called a lot of balls strikes against both teams and a lot of strikes balls.

    Anywho I didn't think NY would sweep them and I had a feeling Mariano would screw up today. I was surprised they started him in the 8th. I thought they would go Gordon Rivera. anywho

    Tomorrow the Yankees will win. Both teams are tired. But the yankees have 2 advantages. Their bullpen is intact. Pedro Martinez pitches badly on 4 days rest.

    Was on the edge of my seat throughout. They had sooo many opportunities to win and pftut pftut, nothing. I can't believe the pitch Ortiz got with 2 strikes??? There was no doubt once he swung. Darn good game, glad the yanks didn't sweep as the BoSox are a good team! I think the Sox might take tonights game also with all their momentum ... well then we can win it at home

    The ALCS needed a game like that after Saturday's blowout. I would like to see Boston get past the Yanks, but am doubtful. Maybe they will liven up now after being so flat in previous games.

    The NLCS has been full of great baseball this October. Sunday's game where Houston tied the series was one of the best baseball games I have seen in a long time, and thanks to affiliate marketing , I see (or at least hear, while I am working) a LOT of baseball.

    I'm pulling for Houston in the NL, seems I like the underdogs this year.

    Pitching has been bad in the ALCS. The umpires want to go home. Sunday's game did have a large strike zone, but a consistently wide one. That is the important thing.

    Great baseball! Love it.

    The bottom of the ninth was one of the most exciting innings ever. Everybody knew Dave Roberts had to steal second.

    One thing about Red Sox fans, we cling to any bit of hope they can pull it off, though I don't think they will.

    Bottom of the ninth was perfect textbook baseball, something we're not really used to seeing out of the redsox.

    Can't believe what Cabrerra was swinging at. Should have pinched him with a cooler batter.
    Worked out in the end.

    Would love to see the Sox take it tonight. I have no world series expectations (as life-long sox fan), I just don't want it to end. These NY/Boston series are always a treat (though I'm glad I turned the game off on Sat before double-digits).

    And Ortiz on his previous at-bat. Damn!

    I'm used to that from Nomar; if you throw the first pitch behind his ears he'll step back and take a swing. But these guys really let their anxiety get to them in this game.

    And I didn't think I could ever say this, even under duress while in a drug-crazed stupor, but Lowe did a nice job. I really don't think he should have gotten the hook just yet. SO you gave up a triple to Mr. Matsui? Welcome to the club.

    Anyway, if the Yankees can beat the Sox 3 times in a row, the Sox can certainly do the same to them. I wouldn't get my hopes up too high though. The odds say that the Red Sox win tonight and the Yanks get their piece of the pie with the 6th game.

    Taking it to the limit AGAIN!!! What a Knuckleball Wakefield throws. Gotta pity the catcher. Yankees go ahead in the 15th is my prediction. It will then be up to Boston to tie or go ahead in the bottm of the inning. This is cool, no one reading or posting in this thread so I can keep changing my predictions until I am right

    Grrrrr, I need to stop posting here during the game. I think I jinx them. Ut Oh, all the Yankee fans will start hating me soon At least we get to win at home now

    I predict Ortiz will get a RBI hit in the 14th and the Sox will will.

    What a can't believe the Yankees left so many on base and lost again!

    [Conspiracy Theory]
    Steinbrener told them to loose the two games in Boston to return to NY and get more revenues, and, of course, win it at home.

    Haiko. We all know how Steinbrener is and it's probably true. Plus anyways it is more fun watching the little Boston fans get their hopes up only to be crushed at the last minute

    Wow, a prediction made BEFORE the event. That's risky!

    Can't believe they didn't walk Ortiz and take their chances with Mientkiewicz. Dave Roberts is now my favorite ball player.

    some poor ump'ing tonight, but I think both teams got screwed equally.

    Can we just have a regular 9 inning game? Please? The NLCS game came 10 minutes from finishing first, and started 3 1/2 hours later.

    WHAT A GAME!
    I bet Boston is, once again, full of tired people today. Tired, but happy and hopeful.
    Wakefield was masterful!
    Wouldn't it be cool if they went back to NY and took the next two games?
    That would make me very happy.

    We'll see!

    No baseball team has won 3 in a row after being down 3-0. Looks like that will happen tonite. And if they come back to beat the Yankees and win the series. Damn.

    Thought you jinxed it for a few stressful minutes there trusty.

    My God. Some wacky baseball. I'd love to be watching the tapes with A-Rod.

    7 games IS the way it has to be.
