What a Game!

It's been a while... I've been a little under the weather and was in Europe for a couple of weeks.

Last night was the greatest comeback that I have ever witnessed in MLB playoff history. The crazy thing is that I continued to watch the game even though Boston was down by 7 runs in the 7th inning. Normally I might change the channel but I was just waiting for the Sox to make their run. Everything just came together all at once for Boston. All of the sudden every ab was a good one, they were patient and they took advantage of the weak bullpen of the Rays. I didn't disagree with taking Kazmir out of the game, however, I did disagree with bringing in Wheeler. Wheeler doesn't have dominant stuff and is not a major threat to strike people out. I'm a little curious why they wouldn't have brought in their left hander that they had ready to go for Ortiz and Drew. I think had they brought their left hander in they would probably be on their way to the WS. Nonetheless Boston played spectacular for the last 3 innings and shifted the momentum. It was a great game that I will never forget.
