One down ...
Wow! What a way to start a series. The Sox couldn’t have scripted a better opening to the postseason than their 9-3 pounding of the Angels on Tuesday afternoon. If you’re like us, you’re walking with a little more bounce in your step today. Talk about the victory, but try not to gloat too much. OK, gloat all you want. Pedro pitches Game 2, care to make any predictions for that one?
Pedro had better come big today and in the rest of the playoffs. He's making $17 million a year and it's time he starts producing. People are sick of his baby act by not showing up for the pre game press conference and for the player introductions. That's a disgrace not only to the Red Sox but to the game of baseball. If he doesn't come through in the playofs it's time for him to go.
We knew Schilling would come up big.....IF Pedro can do the same, we will be like the D'Backs in 2001...unstoppable!!!

It was a great start!! Nice to win Game 1 and win it in their house. Let's take this one game at a time.. If the Patriots have taught us anything, it is not to look to far ahead. Anaheim is not going to go away quietly. That being said, a strong outing from Pedro would be nice and much needed. I have a feeling he is going to be on tonight.. Go Red Sox!!
Yesterday showed who the best team is. The Angels came in as a hot team in August and we swept them. They came into the post-season equally as hot and we beat them again. I for one think this Red Sox team is for real. They have the best team on paper and are playing like it as well. Bring on the Cardinals.
Pedro needs to step up tonight and 'be the daddy." We really need Pedro to be sharp this post-season or the Sox are going no-where. He's the #2 pitcher. Let's hope the Pedro of old finds his way to the mound tonight.

Sox give a re-Pete performance as Angles fail their Colon-oscopy exam.

NESN's worst day of baseball broadcasting is still light years ahead of the very best days put forth by ABC and other national networks. The Remdog is an integral part of watching the Sox, and yesterday's game just wasn't the same without his voice in the background. Why are we being subject to those broadcasting bozos when we could of had a Remdog! I know the reason but, nevertheless, I don't like it! NESN carried the games all season long and made it fun for Sox fans. Now, during the most exciting part of the season, we are forced to endure a panel of Network nitwits whose knowledge of the team comes from que cards and live feeds into their headsets! I just as soon enjoy the game on radio than listen to the clowns who did yesterday's Sox games and last night's Yankees game. Go SOX GO! Wrap it up at Fenway on Friday night!!!
I live in LA. It was soooooo sweet to see both California teams lose especially watching the Sox shut those stupid thundersticks up. The curse : R.I.P 1918-2004
