All I can say is, fantastic :)

Ortiz da man, 3 run homer to start the night off :)
Very happy chappy.

Fantastic start, 4-0 to end the first inning...who'd have thought :)

I really fought against getting into Baseball but here I am with my red socks on cheering like a mad thing!

What d'you reckon the chances are for another double digit final score for the Sox?

Yeah I know what you mean, but then after going to see a couple Sox games up at Expos, got right into it...
I just hope the Sox keep it up, with big pappi, who knows, and now Damon is playing well, could be a good thing....
wonder how long wakefield lasts though...

Would be awesome to be out there wouldn't it...

Arsecakes. A score from the cads. Not sure how I feel about Timmy boy. He can be a bit (pardon the pun) hit and miss.

Aye, that's the prob I've seen with wakefield...so who knows...
Thought what the cards did to Kline was a tad rude though...

Mr Sibsie just called from some hick town in FL. He was in a bar watching the game with his co-pilots and two chicks were making out at the bar. The owner and a couple of the customers complained and the lesbian police turned up to cart the two chicks off. Bit harsh I thought. Mr Sibsie was so looking forward to dinner and a show. ;)

Just heard on the commentary that Bank of America are paying $10k per home run.

Re: World Series
 
Damon doing good again, another run, though that first hit...almost a grandslam...shame it was on the wrong side of the pole...

Bob Oct 24th 2004 2:32 am

Re: World Series
 
couple more runs...this could be very good..and still loaded bases...

sibsie Oct 24th 2004 2:47 am

Re: World Series
 
I'm not liking the look of this. Timmy boys looking tired and shouldn't be giving walks like that. Who's warming up in the bull pen?

Fer ferk's sake. 7-7. Still, it's not over til the fat lady sings, and I ain't singing yet.

Bob Oct 24th 2004 5:42 am

Re: World Series

sibsie Oct 24th 2004 5:56 am

Re: World Series
 
Busy day tomorrow. I've got a bar appointment for the Pats, swiftly followed by Mr Sibsie landing and then heading off to another bar for The Sox.

It wasn't the most inspiring game I've won and they've no reason to feel cocky but it was good enough.

Aye, a result is a result at the end of the day...

Does the world end if the Sox win it all?. lol


I'd personally like to see the Cards win it, due to the fact that I am already bored with my Bostonian friend bragging about the Pats. :)

Hehe...well i'd like to see the Sox win it, a few relatives are on their last legs and want to see a world series, so would be nice...and would be cool to suck it to the yankees :)

Right, getting ready for tonights installment....anyone else watching?

Bob Oct 25th 2004 4:50 am

Re: World Series
 
Sweet, 6-2 win, brings a clean 2-0 series lead... :D

Pimpbot Oct 25th 2004 4:55 am

Re: World Series
 
Lets see how Pedro likes a little chin music tuesday when he has to bat. It will be interesting to see how the Sox play National league ball without the DH. I'm asuming that Ortiz will play at first for the three games in St Louis?. Of course Francona was a NL manager, so he should know what he's doing.

Not really. St Louis's home record and stats are far better than their road record. Tonights pitcher Morris, had a far better home record this year, which kinda makes you wonder why they started him on short rest?. You cannot keep that line up quiet for too long and a home stand might be just what Rolen and Edmunds need. Pedro's start on tuesday is going to be interesting. Because if the Cards start making hits and scoring run's early, Pedro's not going to be able to intimidate batters like he usually does when his backs against the wall, because like I made reference to in the other post, he'll get some nice inside pitches right back under his chin. Infact, with La Russa managing, don't be surrprised if you see it early just to get under Pedro's skin.

I see the Cards taking 2 out of 3 to send it back to Boston.

to think that they aren't gonna win one in Busch is yes, optimistic, but Sox have won 6 in a row.......

Don't the Sox only have to win two more games to have done it? Or have I miss calculated.

I'd like to see a clean sweep and perhaps with a few less errors from the Sox, they could just do it.

Aye, best of 7, so first to 4 would do it :)
I wouldn't mind if card won one, that way the Sox could win it on home turf, now that would be fantastic to see :)

It's so nervewracking, I'd just like it over with sooner rather than later.

Thought Monday's game was 100x better than the opener.

Hi-def noticeably better then?

4-0....looking good :)

sibsie Oct 27th 2004 3:39 am

Re: World Series
 
Hi-Def is hugely fantastic. Without it I find the pics over here a bit grainy. My only gripe is that not all the channels have it, so when you watch a show in normal it looks total pants.

Great throw by Ortiz earlier. Other than that, not a hugely exciting game.

Aye, and the cards guy that flapped, could have made the run, but went back to third, plank, nice :)

Dull game but great result. They really should do "Man of the Match" over here. Martinez would get it for today's game.

Bob Oct 27th 2004 4:46 am

Re: World Series
 
Sweet, they won again 4-1 :)

Aye, hardly a classic, but it did the job, didnt' help with the heavy rain. Martinez kicked arse though.
