Wow, we are 4 wins in a row on road in playoffs going for four in a row to win this series. We face their best tomorrow in Verlander and we most likely see Price although not sure as he was throwing a ton of pitches in bullpen as our heart attack closer got six outs......

Best case scenario, we play next game in Fenway in Series, worst, we go back to Fenway for game six and Sale....

Lets do this!

Hopefully Jonathan Papelbon will close tomorrow night.

Well, Price is getting the start. They said the bullpen warmup last night was actually planned to help him get loosened up better the night before he pitches. He said it is a new thing and they are testing. I say, Whatever works....Come on Price....Shock the World tonight and out pitch Verlander!

For those that missed last night's fireworks...great summary with video clips of ten plays that made the game so special.

Unretire Beckett for an inning.

Rather see Byung Yung Kim or Eric Gagne at this point!

Nah. The media  narrative is that the umpires/league are giving the series to Boston. Despite the cheating and the fact that the Umps blew a call in game 3 that cost Boston 2 runs. The media conveniently ignored the video evidence on that one.

Yeah, that is obnoxious.  Both were huge plays that could have been called either way both on the field and instant replay, but the media only focuses on the one that benefited Boston.  There were so many great plays by both teams yesterday and so much drama, yet 90% of the coverage is on that one first inning play.
