Boston Red Sox...LAST CHANCE TEXACO - GAME ONE

Good morning on this too early Thursday morning. Tonight's game will be game one of must win contests for the defending world champion Boston Red Sox. Why did I call it LAST CHANCE TEXACO game one? Just scroll down to the preceding post and you'll understand completely. The Tampa Bay Rays, firmly in complete control, have made a pitching change. Instead of James Shields, we'll see lefty but sometimes (lately) erratic Scott Kazmir. If he's on and has his control and can pitch more than six effective innings, this will be the last game for the team we love. But Boston has won three games in a row many times before. If Matsuzaka can do it once again and the Sox hitters can drive in some runs, we'll see Florida baseball starting on Saturday. With Beckett and Lester slated for games six and seven, well, those are the two guys, under normal circumstances, that we'd want to see. Obviously, these are anything but normal times for Boston.

So good luck to the Boston Red Sox. May Daisuke daze and confuse the Rays much like his first start of the series. May we live to play again. The game starts shortly after 8pm EDT and will be televised by the usual culprits-TBS and TBSHD. It all goes over to Fox and Fox HD for the World Series. By the way, the Phillies beat a game and determined Dodger team last night to make it into "the big one." Who will join them? We'll see, soon.

Please click on the title of this post, with your sound on, to listen to that Rickie Lee Jones song LAST CHANCE TEXACO. Just click on the title, look below and on the right side of the little image and click "watch in high quality," and you're all set. Haunting. As always, BE WELL. GO SOX...GO SOX.

Like Ray Goulding of Bob and Ray, once said, playing a Hockey Coach in a Cigar Commercial:

"Please, Win!"

Appropo Here.

What I am hoping for is a win tonight so that at a minimum, the Rays will not clinch in Fenway Park. That would be embarassing for us, and not as festive for the Rays. If the Rays are going to win, we'll all enjoy it more if they do it in Florida.

Of course, if we win tonight, I sure hope Lester get's the ball for game 6, and Beckett gets one extra day for game 7 (or would Tito go with Byrd for game 7? scary thought).

A legendary comeback, Mike! WOW!!

Byrd will not start for this team unless Becket ABSOLUTLY ccannot go. He'll go and pitch game six, I bet. Unless...thanks Rooster.

Just in time for the dramatic playoffs!
