There can be ONLY one Wildcard

Got that, Jon Lester? Only ONE. Here. Let me illustrate it for you using the cult classic, Highlander.

Jon Lester! It would help if you were at least enthusiastic about your HEADSHOT.

We’ve got this. Oh. We’ve got this.

Or else.

And today, that’s literal…


So, Soxies. It’s been a great season. And… if… if…

You know I love you guys, right?

Any last words?

    Tonight, we dine in hell?

    Is it a bad sign that I can’t get the movie 300 out of my head? But maybe we’re the Persians instead of the Spartans. Let’s get this done!

      “Tonight, we dine in hell.” I like that, Jup. I really do.

    I’m ready, and really not nervous. I think it’s because I’ve come to accept the reality that this team is going nowhere, even if it gets in the playoffs they are getting their ass kicked by some one. If our pitching can’t come up big in September I have no faith that it will in October either, the pitchers just seem to have no heart, no fortitude, no balls for the pressure games. I’m hoping they get heart transplants before next season.

    Is it too early to start drinking?

      It is NEVER too early to start drinking.

      Especially if you are Terry Francona.

    It’s cocktail time SOMEWHERE, agoodnow. Drink up! By the way, watching the MLB Network and a rumor the Red Sox are trying to pry Bruce Chen from the Royals to pitch a potential tie-breaker game. He cleared waivers but is a Type B free agent so if the Royals lose him to Free Agency they would get a draft pick…questionable whether or not the Sox would trade for a guy who may never suit up for them. What a finish. What a season. It’s been a long, bumpy ride TooSoxy…and TooSoxy admirers. (by the way L, love the new ‘do)

      Bruce Chen as your big-game go-to guy…

      Which level of hell is that?

        hopefully a step above september…

    Having seen Meat Loaf in concert seven times (the wife is a fan, don’t judge me)…I thought of him when Jup wrote “dine in hell.” The Red Sox will emerge like a “Bat Out Of Hell” from all this and be better for it. Believe, Boston. Believe.

      I’d rather have Meat Loaf pitch for me than Bruce Chen…The Meat used to kick-ass in those Rock N Jock softball games.

        He was scary in Celebrity Apprentice. Scary awesome. Youtube. Meatloaf. Gary Busey. Paint. Look. It. Up.
