I would like to see pirates in there. Being an underdog type of fan that I am, however Mrs izittrue is a RedSox fan so we are hoping for them. Maybe if I pray harder....
Well obviously both can be in the series but I would root for the Sox.

Well they both advance to the next stage. The other two series are going to game 5.

That would be a pretty exciting matchup though.

Verlander's good. Lucky for Boston that Detroit needed him for game 5 so he can only pitch one, maybe two games in the ALCS.

That certainly helps, but Boston is cornering the market on toilet paper.-

Not for the Red Sox Image

But, it is not like Detroit has anyone good for Game 3. . . .

First pitch.

Hunter almost had a play on it. The Interwebz radio was a few seconds before the HDTV so I hear Dave O'Brien screaming the call, "It's over his head," which means at least Ortiz gets a double scoring two . . . "IT'S GONE!" Image

To quote what Steven Wright said about the 2004 ALCS: "If it was a movie, it would be a bad movie, because no one would believe it."

Wow. That was an amazing game.

Great day to be a Boston fan, isn't it?

That was clutch. Down 5-1 and Ortiz comes up with bases loaded and puts the first pitch into the bullpen over a diving Hunter, who goes over the wall.

The bottom of the 9th was a pretty cool coup de grace too.

Pretty big game too. It's only game 2 of a 7-game series, but going to Detroit with the series tied is a lot different than going there already down 2 games to face Verlander.

Seriously. NO ONE believed that would happen. At best, maybe a double . . . cut it 5-3 or even 5-4 if Pedie runs, which he would since it was two outs.
The bottom of the 9th was a pretty cool coup de grace too.
There were about 17--17--guys who were suppose to be set-up and closers. Koji? He was "some guy." Maybe mop-up or something. Seriously.
Pretty big game too. It's only game 2 of a 7-game series, but going to Detroit with the series tied is a lot different than going there already down 2 games to face Verlander.
Oh shit yeah. 0-2 against Verlander? Feh! Lucky to lose it in Boston. Now who knows? In fact, the post game discussion as I type discussed this very point: "Oh yeah, you're walking the plank!"
