    Redsox Win The Pennant!!!
    PHEWWWWWWWW. Im not going to pretend like I wasn't a nervous wreck the past two weeks. I nervously watched the Yankees close in on my beloved Red Sox lead, everyday it seemed like the Yanks were gaining ground. Thankfully the Sox put it together and started playing the way they have all season. We hadn't won a Pennant since 1995. The City of Boston was a joy Friday night. Everyone was in a great mood. It is unbelievable how a professional sports team can bring an entire city together and on the same page for a night. Good times were had by all.

    I have a ticket to the Sox-Angels game on Wednesday, game one of the ALDS. I Cant Wait!!!

    GO SOX!!!

    Don't watch much baseball but I hope somebody beats the Yankees, if not Cleveland then your Red Sox if you get by the Angels.

    And in the National League, Philly and Chicago Cubs is a big deal right? They haven't won anything in forever.

    Ah, I remember watching a show about that goat.

    The Chicago Cubs haven't been to the World Series in over 60 years. Damn. And they haven't won since 1908, a bigger damn.

    "Many people think the legendary goat has something to do about this. According to a Chicago legend, a Chicago bar-keeper and die-hard Chicago Cub fan placed a curse on the team after his goat was not allowed into the stadium (Wrigley Field) for game 4 of the 1945 World Series."

    No team deserves more accolades than the Colorado Rockies. They went on a tear and gained even more ground than the Phillies in the last month to earn today's one-game playoff vs. San Diego for the final post-season spot.

    Excellent!!!

    I hope Ortiz keeps smashing the Angels like he did during the regular season!!!

    ~~~from the mlb site, regarding the regular season Sox-Angels games~~~
    Boston went 6-4 against Los Angeles, outscoring the Angels, 64-42. Ortiz did the most damage, going 13-for-36 in nine games, with three doubles and four homers, the last a titanic grand slam off Jered Weaver. Boston's Curt Schilling posted a 3.21 ERA in his staff-leading two wins against the AL West champs. Los Angeles' Joe Saunders, in turn, went 2-0 with a 3.46 ERA against the Sox.

    Ortiz's OPS was outstanding this whole season!

    I think he's bound to do some serious damage against the Angels. I hope he lands one your way Brent!

    It is excellent Donuts!

    I dont have a doubt in my mind that PAPI will bring his A game for the Angels. He did what he did this year on a bum right knee, which he will have surgery on this off-season, and a bum shoulder he hurt awkwardly sliding into second. The guy is a beast and by far my favorite Red Sox of all time. I will be rocking my Ortiz jersey for that game, look for me on the tube, the drunk guy in the Ortiz jersey :-)

    I'm from Connecticut and a family that's divided among NYY, NYM and Red Sox fans. Makes for some interesting conversations at this time of year.

    I worked for years in Kenmore Square so I guess I acquired a fondness for the Sox back then. And I tell you what, I haven't watched them play this year but last year when they played the Mets they positively shone. They were a joy to watch in that series. I hope they put on as good a show in the playoffs.

    Those poor Mets. I feel so bad for them.
    But, in the spirit of the thread, GO SOX!!!

    I too have a place in my heart for the Cubs and wish them well. A Sox/Cubs World Series would be a win win for me.

    How in the world do you choose a Manager of the Year in the NL?

    Lou Pinella?
    Bob Melvin?
    Charlie Manual?
    Clint Hurdle? (addendum to my earlier post - Colorado went 13-1 the last 2 weeks)

    In the AL, as great a job as Terry Francona and Mike Socsia (and even Joe Torre) did, I'd give it to Cleveland's Eric Wedge.

    As far as Angels-Red Sox, the Angles got some key guys back the past month, and I don't know what they will do with their post-season roster, but after showing they were healthy for the first time this year, Bartolo Colon and Juan Rivera could make major contributions, as could Mike Napoli who had been on the DL most of the past couple of month.

    I don't know how Colon would fit it - they're not going to mess with the big three (Lackey, Escobar, Weaver) and though Saunders has struggled lately, as Donuts said, he's 2-0 vs. BoSox this year. Rivera, though, could give them another big righthanded bat in Fenway.

    Hurdle has to win it, as well as Wedge. Those guys deserve it this season. Melvin did a good job and won his division, but NO-ONE had the Rockies doing what they did. The Indians were a good team going into the season, but winning the pennant over the Tigers was a great feet for a young squad. Especially without the payroll of the Yanks and Sox.

    As far as the Angles are concerned, they are a tough squad. However, lackey has a 7.46 career ERA at Fenway Park. I assume he will be pitching one of the first two games of the series. Saunders pitched well against us this past season, but he doesnt scare me at all. Colon is a donut away from a heart attack, and Weaver is a second year pitcher.

    That being said, it will be a fantastic series. Both teams had great regular seasons and either can win it. Should be a lot of fun!

    I don't know the BoSox rotation for the series but I would think in a likely game three matchup, I would take the 2d year Weaver over the 107-year-old Tim Wakefield.

    Colon has been eyeing that "last donut" since long before his Cy Young in 2005.

    Josh Beckett(potential cy young award winer), Curt Schilling(Post season hero), and Daisuke Matsuzaka(not sure what he is going to bring to the table for the postseason, but I cant wait to watch). Wakefield may pitch game 4, depends on whether or not it is an elimination game or not. if it is, you'd better believe Beckeett will get the nod.

    From a bullpen prospective, The Sox had the best bullpen in the league all year long. They hit a very bad patch in September, but have recently rebounded and righted the ship. With Okajima coming back from a tired shoulder, manny delcarmen doing his best Mike timlin circa 2004 impression, and Papelbon holding down the ninth inning, our pitching is looking quite strong going into the post season.

    These are the best all around teams in the AL, which is why I am nervous as hell about this series. I'm just hoping for a repeat sweep of the 2004 ALDS.

    >> They hit a very bad patch in September

    Don't remind me. I've still got a nervous tick that I'm pretty sure was caused by Gagne.

    I can't wait for Wednesday and this whole thing to get started.

    It's a shame that the White Sox and Cubs can't pull together decent seasons in the same year. A White Sox/ Cubs World Series would be awesome.
