About Me: Born Portland, Maine. Spent 21 years in New England. Catholic schools-Priests asked if I got the calling (to be a priest)but instead got the calling for the draft so chose(USMC). Lifelong Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins, Patriots fan. Been in the other BAY AREA past 50 years(SF) and as there is a rivalry similar to NY-Boston with SF and LA, the sports bars here in No. Cal. have fans rooting for us as if I were in Boston. Still go to New England once-twice per year to visit family---extremely partial to better seafood on East Coast & better sports fans as here they are more fair weather. Had a great run though with Joe Montana/Steve Young & 49ers and recently the SF Giants 3 World Series victories in 5 years and now the Warriors to hopefully, along with the Clippers, keep the Lakers out of the playoffs. Remember Wrigley's Spearment Gum Ad ? Double your pleasure, double your fun. I get almost as much pleasure watching Yankees lose as I do watching the Sox win and ditto for the Celtics winning & Lakers losing !!! When Sox & Celtics don't play NY & LA, I root for any team that does!

    I watched a lot of Panda with the Giants. He happened to get very hot during the playoffs but his stats during the year were ave. I opposed the Sox signing him. If he could go over the the monstah 20- more »

    I recall when season started we were predicted to win a lot of games, 9-7, 8-6, 5-3 etc. and lose them too by those scores as we were predicted to have a good offense. But more important, we were pred more »

    Only thing left is to root against the Yankees and they look tough.... better coach & better management. Fortunately, I'm a Giant fan too. Bet Panda wishes he were still in SF as he'd have a chance fo more »

    When we started season I felt we'd be at least a .500 team and I'd bet 2:1 we'd been better than the Yankees. And yup I'd enjoyed a good offense winning 8-6, 9-7, 6-4 etc. and losing by that much too. more »

    From SF was in Boston visiting family and was lucky to see Sox beat Houston on July 4 with Buckholtz pitching. We won 4-1 and he had shut out until Astros last batter with 2 strikes got a hit. Maybe b more »

    A lot of people like pitchers duels and these 2 games were 1-0 & 3-0 but we Sox fans would like to win some of them. I recall when season started we were forecast to have a good hitting team and medio more »

    Again, I cite Mookie's last at bat...please no scathing rebuttals about singing Sweet Caroline as I know he's been perhaps our best performer and has great potential but when we need a hit and not a w more »

    The glimmer of hope in the 9th adds to the frustration. 12 hits and "0" errors to 11 hits and 2 errors and we lose by 2 runs...it's just not fair.

    How can Mookie let the first 2 FAT pitches go w/o swinging. Now pitcher has 4 balls to not toss a strike and have Mookie bite as he did. Was Mookie looking for a walk? We didn't need leave the bases l more »

    On that strike out by Ramirez, he took a Panda swing !!!

     

    Shame to have 11 hits( out hiting them & behind by 2 runs) and we have a good chance to lose this game !

    We are leading the LOBSTERS stat in this game and maybe in the league too especially with men on 2nd & 3rd.

    The thorn Gardiner beat outs a wimpy grounder and too much for us to ask for a DP, our other thorn at Fenway Arod stings us ! Why can't we get key hits like this ?

    Shucks...seems this guy has become unhitable past 2 innings. And that thorn to us Gardiner is leading off.

    Shame...men on 1st & 3rd no outs and w/o the balk and same scenario of the next 3 batters they'd been held scoreless !
