Redemption


I've been hoping for it all month. A chance for J.D. Drew to erase a season of disappointment with a big postseason. Putting your team up 4 in the first inning of an elimination game does just that. Two out, bases loaded...exactly the kind of situation he's NOT come through on all year. Each time Drew's been in one of these spots, I'm talking to the TV, "Come on, J.D., now's your chance!" Only to have the weak cut at strike three or the 4-3 groundout.

The Sox are alive for Game 7, and J.D. Drew is the reason why. Nice to see you smile...

I've been very quiet during the ALCS, not wanting to upset the karmic apple cart. But just so we're clear, I hate your fucking team.

I wouldn't mind seeing the Sox get to the Series and see if they can stop the Rockies. Maybe they'll get it to game 6, up 3-2 in the series, 1 out from the title and then...

And the Toast Hex -- in its truly vicious reverse-double-whammy positive boost for the enemy form -- comes through again.

Hm, Rickey had always figured you for a Sox fan... You Boston fans have things going too well for you at the moment and Rickey dislikes this.
