Shef's at-bat was the best I've seen since Paul O'Neill's at-bat in the 2000 World Series in which he fouled off a zillion pitches before drawing a walk. And Heredia did a terrific job; best inning I've ever seen him pitch for any team.
I wonder whether the Babe might have been out there quietly loosening the laces on Ortiz's glove.
The game was pretty much a microcosm of a typical Red Sox season.
Can anyone tell me WHAT the Red Sox are thinking about their "look" these days? I know there are always cases (like David Wells) that aren't in finely tuned athletic shape, but c'mon! I have two words for the Bo Sox -- Weight Watchers! Maybe John Kerry can fly in his barber for Johnny Damon.
Anyway, just posting to gloat. Watched the game last night on a station with Boston announcers. They were pretty brutal. Sheffield fouling off a gazillion balls was awesome Sorry George!
