Good thing Bellhorn is in there!

Usually he just strikes out. The DP with the bases loaded and 1 out adds a whole new dimension to his suck-ability!  :cry:

Schilling looks good but still looks a bit "off". Lots of long fly balls.

Don't worry we okay.  Schilling'll do fine (random acts aside) - if he was physically unable to we woulda known it by now smile  And the Sox are right on Lieber - finally they're not makin this guy look like a Cy Young contender - knew it was only a matter of time hes gone down hard once already.  I like what Im watchin for now smile

With all the chaos at my university last year when the Yankees won this series, I'm just hoping for it to go to Game 7.  Anything for a little more chaos.   :lol:

WE BELIEVE


My co-worker/employee at work is a BoSox fan and we were both geeked up all day. Everytime another store called we'd say "Go Redsox!" right before hanging up.

I walked around sayin "I Believe!" all day....

I BELIEVE



First year where I've really, really seen Sox fans get into this feeling, We Believe. It's allways been fans waiting for the fallout, but this year it's that who cares, why not us, WE BELIEVE! attitude that's got the Nation juiced up...

And what's better than storybook season that includes a 4 game comeback on the biggest rival in our History.

WE BELIEVE.

Arod's a little baby, he clearly interfered, it was super obvious... and it's great that he's passionate and wants to argue, but you and everyone knows that it was the right call.

Since when have the calls gone Sox way???

If you don't yet, I can't help you...

Huzzah!!!!!!!!

Now we get the two teams try to figure out who the hell they're going to send to the mound on game 7.  Show up to Yankee stadium tomorrow night, you might not only get standing room tickets, you might get to pitch for one of the teams.

At any rate, the Red Sox have set a new record (being the first team to force a game seven after down 0-3).  Just win game 7!!!

Yankees fan entering the thread to complain about officiating in 5....4.....3.....2.....1.....

Can't complain about officiating when they get it right... Clear HR and a clear Interference.

Yeah, I was hoping to see the fuzz busting some Yankee fan heads.  That would've been the only thing better than seeing the official call A-hole-rod out and seeing the "huh, what happened?" look on his face.

Maybe the cops could've smacked that cocky look off Jeter's face while they're at it.

Game 7.  Go Sox!

Man, I'm really getting to enjoy Bill Simmons' columns at ESPN.  They're totally on the mark, and I love the metaphors:

Now you could hear the lightbulb flickering over everyone's heads. Wait a second. If we can hold them off here, we have Pedro and Schilling going in the next two games. It was like seeing a pair of dirty jeans from the previous weekend, then remembering that you may have left $100 in them.

Anyway, they've helped me get through this week.

I'm as ecstatic as the rest of you, but they still need to win Game 7. This time it's been set up with even more on the line than last year and I'm not sure I can take a Sox loss so I'm already preparing.

It's amazing to come back from 0-3 to tie it, but remember the curse is not officially reversed yet.

I've followed the Yankees since the days of Reggie Jackson, which were the days of my youth, so if you're asking me am I a Yankee fan, YES I am.  

Having said that, A-Rod's play at first base was bush league bullshit. I lost any bit of respect I had for him after that stunt. I like the Yankee's, but I don't like a cheater. And then to top it off he raises his arms and goes "What?", like he did nothing wrong and tries to explain it away like he was running and his arms hit it by accident. Geez man, that was lame.

As for the other officiating call, the HR ball was just that, a home run. It was clearly over the wall, fan touched ball and bounced back on the field. No drama necessary.

The referee's did their job, they did a great job of calling the game and that's what any fan should want; a fair game played and called by the rules of the game.

While I may be a Yankee fan I'm not the kind of fan who wants them to win by any means necessary if those means are by cheating or winning on a controversial call that on further replay was found to be wrong.

The other night when David Ortiz was called out a 2nd, to me he was safe. The ref's don't have instant replay so it's got to be a judgement call on the field as to what he see's with his own eyes.

I respect the Red Sox for coming back after being down 3-0 and making this a great ALCS. I've stayed up until the end of game's 4,5,6 and it's been hell getting up in the morning and getting to work on time but I've managed.

As a sports fan I've always had the mindset that the better team wins and moves forward in playoff's or championship series. IF the Red Sox win then they get my respect for beating the Yankee's and moving on to the World Series.

I'm not upset or angry at A-Rod at all. He did the only thing he could. I've done it before myself and have been called out as well. Not a big deal.

If Nixon did it, people in Boston would think it was 'gritty'.  

This is for Koz:

Schilling out there with his tendon stitched to his leg and blood coming through his sock and then think of Bitch Boy sitting in the dugout of Yankees stadium a few months ago not playing as his team is battling away.

With one swing of the bat Bellhorn has more HRs and RBIs than Nomar did last post season.

So you've suddenly become a Bellhorn fan? I told you he had the potential for one of those "where the hell did that come from?" moments, and he sure had it. I had to eat my words about both Bellhorn and Millar, who each played very well (minus Millar's minor screw up on a potential DP).

If we had Schilling coming out for Game 7 too, I'd be a lot more secure. But it's Lowe, probably Wakefield, and most likely 5 or 6 other pitchers. It will be such a whacky game that almost anything can happen, and as a devoted Red Sox fan over the years, I usually expect the worst.

Still no big fan of Bellhorn, just pointing out that his one hit put him past Nomar (my other buddy)

Now is the time to take Bellhorn out. He got his hit and now will go into his 7 game funk. Bring him back out next year.
