well, I working on a documentary, trying to stop a train, saving a river and some endangered birds, helping to organize a labor conference, working and trying to have some fun. The Red Sox had to take a back seat with my attention, but not with my heart.

...well, it turned out to be game 5. See people, I'm gonna tell you one thing you all gotta understand....the Red Sox are a spiritual cause. Plain and simple. They almost have a need to be kicked in the teeth and down by impossible odds to show the world that the zen maxim "7 times down, 8 times up" is indeed quite quite true. They just do it over and over and over again. God loves the Red Sox.

I missed the last couple of game as I was driving from montana to NJ. Everyone I had talked had written the sox off. But I wasn't so sure on that. But just like they did when they were losing to the yanks, they came back.

Did you hear about the Yankee fans turning out to root for Boston at fenway?

I'm sure it freaked out a lot of boston people.

Lets go Boston!

Momentum is with the Red Sox and they will prevail. See? Didn't I make my point?

yes the momentum is now with the Sox a team with post season experience which makes them better suited for the pressure of a final tie breaking game.

Beckett played his game like the beckett of old. Master of control and placement. He was great!

SAVED BY BASEBALL

There’s something going on in the USA right now- changes and challenges. Perhaps not since the Great Depression has the US been faced with such serious mounting economic and social problems. The experts say things will be getting worse. My mom told me that when she was a kid growing up in the Depression, that people and communities helped each other. It seems like we’re being called on to turn in this direction again, and we have the signs on how it’s to be done.
I point to the 2008 Boston Red Sox. Yes, a baseball team, but not an ordinary baseball team. In 2004 Boston beat all the odds to come back from a 3-0 deficit against the New York Yankees to win the American league pennant race and then go on to beat the St. Louis Cardinals 4 zip in the World Series. The doubters were far flung and pretty vocal, but some say “magicâ€

Sad to see the sox loss but a big congratulations to the Rays and their first win in the playoffs!!

The lose of Manny caused the Sox to lose the playoffs. You can see the gap in the needed clutch hits. Too many runners left on base. Key hitters like veritek not hitting consistently along others.

Best of Luck to the WS headed Rays. They should win it!

Lets go American League!!!

I think that baseball is the epitome of the American spirit.

America is a team. We all want to be on the winning team. Yet it is the individual being that excels above the shadows of the team that we all aspire to be.

Baseball is very much a part of that dream. No other sport has those qualities where a person, an individual takes on a whole team by themselves. The batter is that person posed against the whole opposing team in a ratio of 1:9 with a herculean task of hitting 4 inch diameter sphere hurling a 60 feet a second: a mere split second.

The heroes of past stand sentinel to the present seem more mythological then real. We read historical stats as if like they were demigods compared to mortal humans of today's' games. They didn't even have steroids or other enhancement drugs. True pitchers are better trained, but stadiums fields are shorter, balls bouncier and bats lighter. There are more games per years. We have better weight training, better doctors that reconstruct torn ligaments or other modern miracles to lengthen playing careers. Still today players can't match up to those of old.

Of all today's sports, baseball is the only game that has no time constraints as most of our modern games do. In the days before modern inventions such as the light bulb. Games could last days mimicking everyday life all without mandatory commercial breaks.

Baseball is timeless!

Agreed. And so happy that the "old guy" pitched his heart out and beat the devils in a weird game. Win tonight guys, I don't subscribe to the American league fidelity thing Zeus, sorry. I'm a Giants fan when in SF (unless inter league play brings the team of God here from Boston)

I bet you even shop at TRADER Joes too!

I think the wrongly mis-called play on third in the first inning basically drove the nail into the confidence of the Rays along with Howard coming out of his home run slump.

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/28/sports/baseball/28baseball.html?hp

The Rays have the american league's "we can't get the crucial hit syndrome!"

I don't think the Rays have it in them to come back in the next game, but this is baseball and we've been down this road too many times to say its over.

Sometimes I buy their 2 buck chuck wines when a good one comes along

Well congrads to the Philies though I think it was unfair that they had to play game five in Phili instead of playing it in FL.

Baseball's best and deserve to be.

I always said that the best team always win.

And they hate its ownership. Did you hear them booing the owner

Personally I don't like the Philies fans!

They have no class!

They won because we we beat the will to win out of the Rays in 7. Hail to Kevin Garnett for setting a new team record 1000, games played!
