First, the Sox really tempted fate - and lost - when they had 1986 playoff hero Dave Henderson throw out the first pitch against the Angels. Didn't Boston remember how badly that ended for the Yankees in 2004, when the Bombers dragged out Bucky Dent for Game 7? Anyhow, here are my thoughts on that.
Then there's A-Rod's new October attitude. Is it fueled by his new theme song, a Jay-Z tune?
I also lobbied for keeping Joba Chamberlain in the bullpen - for good.
And I noted that Matt Holliday isn't the only goat in St. Louis.
Finally, I mocked Chip Caray's line drive base hit call.
