... and you know I mean it when I inexplicably compare the local nine to some 80's flick. INCONCEIVABLE!!!

Only mostly dead
Remember that scene in the Princess Bride when Westley is captured by Prince Humperdink... and they torture him within an inch of his life... and then Andre the Giant and Inigo "You kill my father, prepare to die" Montoya save him in his near lifeless state, get the secret potion from Billy Crystal, and Westley slowly comes back to life to the awe of Andre when Westley notes "I've always been a fast healer, Fezzik." Well, it's not so much a scene as it is half the movie, but that right there is the embodiment of the 2009 Boston Red Sox. Just when we think they're dead and lose 6 critical division games in August, they come back to life, outwit the Sicilian, kill the 6-fingered man, and save the Princess.
