Red Sox Season Over
For the first time in 4 years, the Boston Red Sox will not be playing in the post season. Last night game, the last game of the season, was called off after the 5th inning due to the rain.
I was very lucky to have the opportunity to attend 5 games this year. The best games was on July 30th and August 11, both games the Red Sox came from behind and won! The last two games were a disapointment because it was very obvious that the Red Sox weren't going to the post season. The croud wasn't in it, and quiet frankly the Red Sox just didn't seem to be playing competitively.
Maybe the Red Sox will make the playoffs next year. However I don't expect that the Red Sox be out of the papers. Boston is a Baseball town, and the rumors of the changes that the head office will make will certainly be headlines to no matter what the Celtics and Bruins are doing.

Red Sox win!
I know its been a while since I posted anything, but I have been pretty busy with work. I have been working on some pretty busy projects and have done a little bit of travel in the past few months.
The Red Sox are playing in the post season again! Once again the Red Sox nation will be up late every night partying like its 2004!
The Red Sox vs White Sox match up looks to be a good one.

Once again, David Ortiz hit a game winning home run in the bottom of the 9th against the Angels.
The feeling at fenway was almost the same as it was last October when Ortiz did it against the Angels. I have a feeling that, unless the bases are loaded, that he will be walked in the rest of the series.
The Red Sox are now 3 games a head of the New York Yankees!
I plan to record every Red Sox game that is broadcast on WEEI in September. The Red Sox are playing much better than they did in 2004!

Manny being Manny
Its great that Manny Ramirez is not leaving Boston. The radio host on WEEI told his audience on Saturday night that it would be best for the Red Sox if Manny were to leave. He argued that Manny cost the Red Sox too much.
However, given that the Red Sox won the last two games and are now 3.5 games a head of the Yankees in early August, I would think keeping Manny is worth the investment. Manny was a key player in the past two games.
We'll have to see how this plays out during the next two months, but things are looking pretty good for the Red Sox!

Red Sox win!
The Red Sox, who left Fenway Park on June 19 trailing Baltimore by three games in the AL East, returned home leading the Orioles by 2 1/2 games. The 6-0 trip extended the Sox' winning streak to seven games and completed the club's first perfect road trip of six-or-more games since July 29-Aug. 7, 1977 (9-0, with stops at California, Seattle and Oakland).
The Sox, who won for the 12th time in 13 games, had 15 hits in the road trip finale, extending their streak with 10-or-more hits to seven straight games and 12 of the last 13. They scored at least five runs for the 14th time in 15 games.
