The Sox will not play better baseball this year, next year, or any year that I'm alive. The Angels know damn well they very well could be facing these guys again in 3 weeks and they have to be sh*tting themselves in horror. There is no good, all-around baseball team that strikes LESS fear in my heart than the Halos. They pushed the Sox to the limit last night only to get b*tched slapped at the end by Nick Green and Alex Gonzalez, the least feared of all the Gonzalezesesses. Add last night to the past Angel performances in the playoffs and they become about as threatening as a fat kid in a foot race.
You see that guy up there? He pitches tonight. It's not a question of how he pitches, it's a question of how many Angels players ears he rips off and wears around his neck because right now, that's what the Sox do. Well, that's always what Beckett does, but I would have sworn I saw an ear-lace around Bay's neck the other day. The boys take this one tonight and then go steam rolling through Baltimore and I'm writing a letter to Selig convincing him to have the playoffs start next Monday, and perhaps mentioning the where abouts of his dog.
