We’ve got them right where we want them! (ok, I admit that it was not easy writing that, and I’m not quite sure I believe it myself)
However…only 4 teams have ever come back from down 3 games to one. Three of those four times, the team that made the dramatic comeback was the Boston Red Sox. So if any team can do it, it’s got to be us. But let’s not pretend everything is dandy on the good ship lollipop.
Our pitching and offense have got to get it together. But, with that said…don’t let us win on Thursday, because then we have Beckett pitching in Game 6, and Lester in Game 7. And I know a couple of people just chuckled about the fact that I’m basing that statement on the supposition that Beckett and Lester will pitch well. But I honestly think they would. A P.O.’d Beckett may be just what we need. And I can’t imagine Lester having a repeat performance.
Buuuut…we still need our offense to get going. Let’s hope the day off will give them some time to think about how embarrassing the last two games have been.
All the best from a very frustrated (yet hopeful) Front Office,
