One down, 10 to go!!!
A few random thoughts on last night’s game:
1. As I’m sure many of you did, I felt so bad for Jed, and was praying the game didn’t come down to that error.
2. Jacoby being “playoff Jacoby”???! – I sure hope so, because that’s a great way to kick start our offense.
3. I don’t know why Lackey threw Bay anything other than an outside curveball, but I’m sure glad he did.
4. Love Masterson setting up Papelbon. Even when he got into some trouble, I felt pretty confident.
5. Amazing play by Youk to get Vlady out at third. You really have to watch the replay a few times to really appreciate how great of a play that really was. In particular, watch the way he scoops up the ball (in a singular motion), gets to his feet and hits Lowell in plenty of time. In an odd way, that play reminded me of when Ortiz threw out Jeff Supan in the 2004 World Series. Game changing play.
6. Lester is the man.
7. 10 wins away!!!
