    World Series GM 1 - Beckett vs Francis

    Early for the game thread Theo...but its good you started it before someone else did...your karma is better.

    Those numbers against Beckett are pretty good for some of those guys, but I do not expect that they will be able to hit him quite as well tomorrow. In fact, when Beckett is "on", no one is going to hit him well. I am looking for a Sox win tomorrow-once again on the back of Josh Beckett, the AL Cy Young winner, and our Mr October

    Nice numbers if your a John Denver fan : ) but Beckett is throwing the off speed stuff better than any time during the regular season. Both teams are hot now but the Sox have the most recent mojo going into tomorrow's game & more importantly the Home Field Advantage.

    Anyway, we'll be watching from the warm Hawaiian sunshine with our beer in hand again.

    ALOHA RED SOX !!!!

    Evening Theo & All!!! Great job on the game thread, as usual. BTW, very jealous of the tix to the game!! Have a fantastic time!

    So, I wasn't around for Sunday's game, due to computer issues, but what an amazing game! I loved every second of it! I loved watching the celebration & loved watching Becks named as the MVP. Very good night!

    I agree with you ynnam42, Tavarez has been a team player despite his temper =D. Too bad we won't be able to see him pitch a couple of innings in WS.

    Yes, I too am so excited to see Yaz throw out the first pitch. When I was a little girl my first trip to Fenway was in '76 and the excitement of Yaz was great. I still have the program.

    Hope Beckett brings it again tonight. I am hoping the layoff has cooled the Rockies bats. However, I did see the Rockies play the Padres here at the end of the season and lots of breaks seem to go their way.

    Hope the weather at Fenway is good, has to be better than the smoky air out here.

    Afternoon Jete! I am good today, how are you? The family knows very well not to mess around with the game tonight. Fortunately for me, I live with Sox fans...well the older nephew says he's a Sox fan, but he's kind of disinterested in actually watching the games & likes to harrass me as often as possible. Ungrateful wretch...

    Mr. Pemliza on the mound huh? I like the sound of that!

    HI Pem..how are you??...so..where did you hide the remote...LOL!!!!...time to get it rolling!!...Game 1.. Mr.Pemliza on the mound!..LOL!

    Tulsa as always a great post. I too am having an incredibly tough time focusing on work today especially as we are approaching 3 PM these last two hours are going to be excruciating. Every member of Red Sox Nation around the country and around the world is amp'd beyond belief for this evening. I think you will see a focused Red Sox team that I fully expect to hit the field and play inspired ball tonight. We are riding a huge hot streak too coming into the World Series. We're averaging 10 runs over our last 3 games and that is the offense that this team is capable of producing on any given night.

    There is no messing around and the loose band of Red Sox that we have come to know and love appear to be all business in preparation for this evening. I am confident that Josh Beckett is going to out there pound the strike zone with his scorching fastball and mix in his incredible breaking pitches that we saw in game 5 in Cleveland. Who knew? I couldn't agree with Tulsa more scoring early and being out front early in these games will be pivotal for the Sox and especially for our pitching staff. If we are able to stake Josh to an early 3 run lead it could be lights out for Colorado very quickly. A pitcher pitching with a lead especially a power pitcher like Beckett is an entirely different animal than a power pitching who is trying to keep his team in the game by nibbling on corners trying to make that perfect pitch.

    We are flying high and rest assured that they will be ready to go at Fenway and Red Sox Nation around the world is ready to go. Colorado you have no idea what is about to hit you.

    I think Beckett (aka Mr. Pemliza) kicks you know what tonight.

    Is that sticking? Because I really could get used to it! Anyone wanna give him the memo? But not til after he pitches, of course!

    LOL, one of my students has tickets to the game tonight (he became mysteriously ill after 3rd period) and I told him to deliver a message to Josh after the game about this wonderful woman from Idaho... : )

    LOL! You rock 64! Mysterious illness from your student huh? I'd be willing to be there's quite a bit of that illness going around today & tomorrow!

    64, his post season numbers are just sick. He's an excellent pitcher all the time, but in October, he just dials it up t oa whole new level. He's amazing to watch.

    : ) Depending on this series outcome I could become mysteriously ill...by the way, did you see Josh's post season LOSS lines? Even in those he pitched great with the Marlins.

    Hey Guidry, go to the Yankee post... oh that's right the Yankees are not playing tonight!

    Sox will take this series in six or less.

    I know everyone will point to the 3 game series in June, but both of these teams are better now than then.

    Let's admit it, not one of the Rocky starters has us worried. Their pen is good, but not any better than Tribe had against us.

    Their lineup is not hitting solidly 1-9.

    Our defense is not #1 like theirs but #3 is pretty good.

    Sure they are on an unprecidented streak, but they are also cold.

    They beat the smoke and mirrors D-backs while we had to fight of the team with the same best record in baseball. Our pitchers would be sporting a .200 ERA against Arizona also.

    I will say I would love to have their shortstop.

    Off to the tube, maybe they'll show Yaz throwing out the first pitch.

    Enjoy guys, I'll read the posts later.

    GE SOX FANS!!

    I've read everything that's been said here and have nothing of value to add so I'll just say "I'M STOKED!" 2007..... The World Series..... The Boston Red Sox.....Man, it doesn't get any better than this!

    LET'S GO SOX!!!!!!

    Chris I am with you, also in CT. Not sure what to say at this point, in many ways it feels like 04 but in many ways is different but in a good way if that makes sense. Anyway go Sox, I hope we get to see Yaz throw out the first pitch.

    Lucky you to get to watch games during school! Back then teachers could do that. We got as far as "The Price Is Right!" some days when we complained the teacher was giving us too much work. Out came the TV and on came Bob Barker.

    GO SOX
