They're playing well and doing just enough to cover their flaws. What a stressful last two innings!


The 2-3-2 format sucks. It sucks in the NBA Finals, it sucks in the MLB playoffs.

Absolutely hate series formats. Blame it on my one-second attention span, but it's why I prefer single elimination and dislike baseball in general. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The best comment I have heard came from a caller on one of the sports stations (I can't remember which one). He said "The Red Sox will win the World Series because Cora has a horseshoe up his ass. Every decision, good or bad, seems to work out."

I don't like 2-3-2 either. It tends to give home court / field advantage to the 3 team if they split first two. It is then a a best 3 out of 5 with 3 team hosting 3 consecutive games.

I still think the DH should be allowed every game. Who wants to see pitchers hit (try to hit)?

If you're a sports fan, you gotta love Boston in the fall. All 4 major sports teams playing at once

If the starting pitching gets healthy and in line, I like the chances of another ring in TitleTown

As much as I love playoff baseball, I gotta say, playing in late October is hit or miss with the weather. Hate to have games affected by cold temps. Hopefully, it's not a factor

Essentially, in other words, we can all agree that the baseball season is too damn long!

Sox win game 5 to take series 4-1.
David Price is now a Boston legend after a superb pitching performance

Another one for Titletown

A nice 3-hour game that produced a World Series championship. Even the naysayers can't have a problem with that.

I didn't hear anything about "Southwest rioting". Did the kids behave themselves last night and did the police use restraint and not inflame the situation for a change?
