Well, first two games have been awesome. We have been a force unstoppable. Price and bullpen, lights out. Sale did what needed to be done in game 1. Great to have two aces pitching like aces. When down, we seem to always come through with two outs. Our team is a reflection of our manager and it is all coming together perfectly.

We have a six game winning streak going into La La Land. Expected pitchers will be Porcello vs Buehler. Going for our sixth win in a row on the road in the postseason. This is one time I am hoping next time we see game in Fenway is in 2019.

Beat LA! Lets get two on the road and get ready for a parade! Go Sox

Game is Friday at 8:15pm EST..expect a bit warmer which could mean our bats will heat up even more.

Let's continue building on that road playoff streak and finish them off in LA, a message to Magic Johnson!

Iím flying to Italy tonight to go on a cruise, I hope I can still watch. This team is a lot of fun. I fell out of love with baseball after the 04 Series and this is as enthused as Iíve been about the Sox since.
Give us this pick, Almighty Red
And forgive us our tanking
As we forgive those who tanked against us
And lead us not into the lottery
But deliver us from losing

Disagree that Sale has been pitching like an ace.  Price, yes indeed for the last two starts. But the team has been so focused as a whole it just doesn't matter.  As long as it's close they know they'll be ok.

There's a stat floating around that last night was the first time since Don Larsen's perfect game in 1956 that a team has retired the opponent's last 16 batters in a World Series game.

Awesome for you! One of my most memorable cruises was around the northern coast from Venice to Dubrovnik on a very small boat(200 passengers). Which part of Italy are you sailing?

In a perfect world, the next time we see Sale pitch is next year!

So much of me wants to see a game 5 Price shutout; not because Price is a Cinderella story, but because we have 5 more years on that deal. I kid, Price is a good soul.

Price has won me over in two ways recently. He holds himself completely accountable for bad and good- I respect that- The second way are the last two games- results speak for themselves.

I know he mentioned he will not opt out to go to a lesser team...always get a little worried that some team from NY might try and entice him to shift balance..hope not...

I just got back from a short cruise in the Caribbean this morning. Luckily, I was able to watch both games on the boat. Have fun and keep the 'cruise luck' going!
