Heavenly win

October 7th, 2008

God is a Red Sox fan. Just ask the Angels.

(Oh, and not that it even matters anymore, but just for the record: these guys started their vacation even earlier this year.)

P.S.: We’re all in agreement that Tito (who I rarely second guess; the guy’s record kinda speaks for itself) pretty much screwed the pooch by not trotting Lester back out in the 8th, right? I spent three innings listening to the announcers marvel at how he was getting stronger with each passing inning, and suddenly Justin Masterson is out there hucking balls over Varitek’s head and coughing up the lead.

If nothing else, Tito should have at least had Lester go out to the mound to start the 8th and then pulled him once the inning started so that Lester could get some love from the crowd on his way back to the dugout.

    So Bring on the Rays.

    You know I always knew we would win it – last night.

    Even when Franconia Took out Lester who was Cruising along – in favor of Sashimi No 2 Because – hey, why would we want to just get the last 6 outs and go home the easy way?
    Obviously he must have had subscribed to the Ned Yost – Magic 8 Ball of Pitcher Selection. I mean tell me you didn’t see him with that 8 Ball in the corner of the Dugout – Asking it – “Should I pull the guy who is Cruising Along, in Favor of the Sushi?”, apparently the 8 Ball came back with “Most Definitely “

    Even when Franconia then took out Sashimi No 2 to put in Rookie No 1,
    Even when Rookie No 1. Walked the First Guy he faced, and Francona stayed with him.
    Although he had Ace Delcarmin Available. (Who – by the fucking way – not weigh – is whomst he should have gone to in the first place if he was gong to pull Lesterffic, guess the 8 Ball Said – “Most Definitely NO!”

    Even when Franconia left Rookie No 1. In the game to Face Vladimir (we don’t need no stinking batting gloves) GreeeeaaatO – who previously was 5 of 7 off of Rookie No 1.

    Even When Rookie No 1 fucked up the pitch which allowed 2 guys to get into scoring position – Even then I still believed – believed we needed to shoot the Manager.
    (Calling Grady Little – Calling Grady Little – Clean Up on Mound No 1?) HELLO MC FLY???? ANY ONE HOME?????

    Even when Franconia Left Rookie No 1 in to give up a Double to start the Ninth inning- come on? Are you shitting me?

    So what happens- we get out of it due to a botched Suicide Squeeze and some good play and a little luck in the bottom of the Ninth. I will take is – You will take it, but it shouldn’t have ever got there.

    I am as loyal a fan as they come, and I jumped for Joy – but between the 7th Inning and The Joy ……………….

    There was the Magic 8 Ball known as Terry Francona
