    Great ALCS

    This has been fun to watch. Clearly the two best teams in the A.L.  Well played, hard played , first rate baseball. Some really great pitching.  All of the drama and suspense you could ask for. Outstanding managing by Farrell and Leland. Contrary to some of the things posted here , Farrell has managed brilliantly, Buck and McCarver are doing a fine job of announcing , the umpires are doing a good job of officiating and the quality of play has been terrific. There really has been a lot to like , and nothing to complain about. Now , just one more win and on to the Fall Classic. We are looking at the third World Series Championship in ten years , and in our lifetimes. Enjoy it all.

    Re: Great ALCS

    Can't agree more... it has been an amazing series so far.  I wanted the Sox to go through Detroit because I felt they had the best team besides the Sox.  Nobody gave us a shot to start the year, but this has turned into one magical experience.  I hope they keep up this level of play and can pull one out vs. the two best pitchers in baseball the next two games.

     

    Holy ____ ... Bill Belichick said the last Pats game took 5 years off his life... glad he isn't a baseball fan.  This is taking about the same off this fan's life.

    Agreed, although I've been watching most the games without the sound (not so much out of choice, but because of venue).  What's there to complain about?  These are indeed glorious times for Red Sox Nation.

    Yeah, its been fun. But I think that Farrell has had a bad series. There are many examples of mismanaging: first, not using Berry to pinch run for Bogey instead of WMB. Second, not warming someone up when it became clear that Lester was weakening. Third, having Vic bunt on the first pitch instead of allowing Ells to steal second base. Fourth, using Gomes instead of Nava tonight (unless Nava is hurt). There are other examples in other games. He has not had a good series.

    Sherriff, you are sooo predictable. When the RS lose, you're nowhere to be found. When they win, you're back in all your glory. I think they call that a pink hatter.

    Since the RS are my pick to win the whole thing, here's guessing we'll be seeing more of you.

    You lost me at " Buck and McCarver are doing a fine job of announcing , the umpires are doing a good job of officiating"

     

    Buck and McCarver are a joke. They are clearly biased. They whined about a called strike on a Tigers hitter for ten minutes the other night. But when the Sox took the same call on the same pitch and it was called a strike, those clowns had nothing to say but praise Tigers pitching. I don't see any point in whining about it. I just hit the mute button now.

    And the home plate umpires have been erratic on both teams. There is often little rhyme or reason to the balls and strikes calls. Strikes are balls and balls are strikes. Joe West is a moron. A lot of the calls Sanchez was getting in game 1 were ridiculous.

    Sox are up three games to two and heading home. "Let the good times roll".

    In March when the teams were breaking camp to head north, if anyone would have told me the Sox would be within a game of advancing to the WS. Given all of the drama of the previous two years. I'd think we'd all have taken that. Win or lose this has been perhaps the most enjoyable season of baseball since the Idiots of 2004...

    I don't think you can really complain about Middlebrooks since he made it to 3rd. He pulled Lester after the second guy got on. It was pretty quick. Nava is a better hitter but they seem to find away to win with Gomes in the line up. I think he has a great series when you look at how good he has been with the bullpen.

    Great ALCS, undeniably.  Every pitch counts.  Thrills, chills, and excitement.  And all fox wants to do is interviews while the games are being played!  Clearly fox thinks the games themselves are borinG.  Fox also does a lousy job showing us the defense when a batter comes up.

    Tigers are very much the worthy opponent.

    We scream for Farrell to yank Drew for Bogey, instead he switches for the equally struggling Middlebrooks.    Victorino is also struggling and looks bad at the plate, same with Papi and no way will they come out.

    If the series was 3-5, who would you pick for MVP?  Uehara or Napoli?

    I'd go with with Koji.  2 saves and a win.

    Yes it is a great series.  Probably one of the best one I have ever witness.  All games are a tight game.  

    Farrell is doing a phenomial job managing the game!!  Glad Boston hired him!!

    We need Buck to step up in game 6. He has been average in the playoffs far. He has to dominate on Saturday. I do not want a game 7 against Verlander. A lot of good pitching on both sides. But he is the opnly true ace on either team. He has been inconsistent this year. But he is still capable of no hit stuff on any given night.

     

    Let's close this out on Saturday and hope the NLCS goes seven.
