After a long agonizing night of missed opportunities (at home watching the Red Sox NOT at a bar), I decided to check in on the largest Red Sox community on the web.
If you’re looking for one more example that everything about the Boston Red Sox has changed since 2004, there’s this: The Red Sox, gaggers for decades, have become cold-blooded postseason finishers. They have played six games in which a victory would give them a playoff series win since 2004. They have won them all.
Of course they did not extend that streak to seven, losing to the Angels last night and now play in a nearly must win game 4. Not sure if I want to go back to Anaheim (which is nowhere near LA) for a game 5 with Dice BB on the mound.
Anyways, the more interesting thing to note is the calm that Red Sox fans exhibited in the comments on that post.
Let’s see if there is a similar calm if the Sox don’t get the job done tonight.
