Game 4 Sox sweep the World Series!!


For the 2nd time in 4 years, the Red Sox have won the World Series. It wasn't an easy road, which started during the Cleveland series. Being down 3-1 against the Indians, the Sox took the final 4 in the series with the Indians and continued the wrath with the bats and good pitching against the Rockies. The Rockies gave the Sox some evidence that they are a good team that just came up short on some great defense by Julio Lugo and friends and also the bats of Ellsbury, Pedroia, and even Dice K when needed.

Game 4 was another roller coaster in Colorado. The pitching match up was Jon Lester vs. Aaron Cook. Lester looked great in 2+ innings of middle relief during the playoffs, and was a good choice to start Game 4.

Game 4 started with Ellsbury getting on early with a double. Pedroia moved Ellsbury to 3rd with a ground out 5-3, and then Ortiz (clutch) drove in Ellsbury with a single. That was the start to the game for the Red Sox. As far as the pitching match up went, they were neck in neck the entire night until they departed. Their were 7 half innings that went 1-2-3 in the game, so over a third of the game went in order. Scoring didn't continue till the 5th where the Sox got on the board again with a double to the gap in left center by Lowell, which was followed by a single by Varitek and the Sox were up 2-0.

Lowell added to his Game 4 assault with a HR in the top of the 7th, knocking out Cook for the night. It was now 3-0, and the HR's would continue. In the bottom of the frame, Brad Hawpe went deep to put the Rockies on the board, 3-1.

In the top of the 8th, Bobby Kielty pinch hit and widened the gap to 4-1 with a first pitch shot to deep left. In the bottom of the 8th the Rockies countered with Holliday grounding out, Helton singles, and Garrett Atkins blasted a 2 run shot off Hideki Okajima making it 4-3.

It was a smooth 9th for both clubs, and here is the 9th and how it ended.

Top 9th: Boston
- M. Lowell flied out to left
- J.D. Drew grounded out to second
- J. Varitek grounded out to pitcher
0 runs, 0 hits, 0 errors
Boston 4, Colorado 3


Bottom 9th: Colorado
- Y. Torrealba grounded out to second
- J. Carroll lined out to deep left
- S. Smith hit for M. Corpas
- S. Smith struck out swinging
0 runs, 0 hits, 0 errors
Boston 4, Colorado 3

Mike Lowell was named 2007 World Series MVP.

After watching the last pitch, I immediately noticed that Varitek put the baseball in his back pocket. I can't see Red Sox having another issue with the ball not making it to the Hall of Fame. If you don't follow baseball, in 2004 when the Red Sox won the World Series the ball was tossed to first baseman Doug Mientkiewicz who refused to turn the ball over to the Red Sox and the Hall.

The Red Sox will be celebrating the Championship with a parade in Boston on Tuesday.

Red Sox 4
Rockies 3
Boston Wins the World Series (4-0)
--------------------------------------------
In other sports new, A-Rod has opted out of his contract with the Yankees. He will be the AL MVP, and the Red Sox have deep pockets to sign him if they can't resign Mike Lowell. Stand by...

Question: Do you think that A-Rod will sign with the Red Sox? If he does will he play 3rd or short with the possibility of trading Lugo? Let me know.

Tonight at 10 EST I will be on http://www.talkshoe.com/ talking Game 4 of the World Series and also talking NFL, and other sports that you want.

Red Sox Sweep......2007 World Series Champions!!

This just about says it all...



He is the real deal.....

Red Sox Sweep (4-0)

World Series Game 3 recap.

Game 3 between the Red Sox and the Rockies was if anything an indication that the Rockies have a strong bullpen. 'The one thing that isn't helping the Rockies is that they aren't getting out to a lead so that they can hold it.

As I mentioned on my show, this was a roller coaster of a game. Dice-K was on the mound for the Sox and looked like her was the $100 million dollar man the Sox got in April. He had great stuff, good location and also a key hit in the game to help his cause.

Their were 2 key innings in the game. Here is the breakdown of an explosive 3rd for the Red Sox and the 7th inning for the Rockies.


Top 3rd: Boston
- J. Ellsbury doubled to left
- D. Pedroia reached on bunt single to catcher, J. Ellsbury to third
- D. Ortiz doubled to deep right, J. Ellsbury scored, D. Pedroia to third
- M. Ramirez intentionally walked
- M. Lowell singled to center, D. Ortiz and D. Pedroia scored, M. Ramirez to second
- J.D. Drew popped out to center
- J. Varitek singled to left, M. Ramirez out at home, M. Lowell to second, M. Lowell to third advancing on throw
- J. Lugo walked, J. Varitek to second
- D. Matsuzaka singled to left, J. Varitek and M. Lowell scored, J. Lugo to third
- J. Ellsbury doubled to center, J. Lugo scored, D. Matsuzaka to third
- F. Morales relieved J. Fogg
- D. Pedroia grounded out to third
6 runs, 7 hits, 0 errors
Boston 6, Colorado 0

Here is the 7th inning for the Rockies where they made a good run at the Red Sox and had a huge hit from Matt Holliday off Hediki Okajima.

Bottom 7th: Colorado
- K. Matsui reached on bunt single to third
- K. Matsui stole second
- T. Tulowitzki singled to center, K. Matsui to third
- J. Ellsbury in right field
- H. Okajima relieved M. Timlin
- C. Crisp in center field
- M. Holliday homered to deep center, K. Matsui and T. Tulowitzki scored
- T. Helton singled to left
- G. Atkins struck out swinging
- B. Hawpe struck out swinging
- Y. Torrealba grounded out to pitcher
3 runs, 4 hits, 0 errors
Boston 6, Colorado 5


This looked like it was going to be the Rockies night because their bullpen was better than Boston's. On the other hand, the bats were better for the Red Sox.

The line up that Tito Francona put on the field started Ortiz at first instead of Youkilis because their isn't a DH in the NL.

As I have said since the Cleveland series, the Red Sox need to get production on the front of the line up and also at the bottom from Lugo and in this case even the pitchers. Dice K did his job in Game 3 with a base hit in the top of the 3rd. The production came from Jacoby Ellsbury who went 4-5 with 2 RBI's. He had 3 doubles to spark the scoring. Also, Dustin Pedroia in the 2 hole was a key bat for the Red Sox as well going 3-5 with a double as well.

The Red Sox added 3 additional runs in the 8th and 1 in the 9th.


Red Sox 10

Rockies 5
Red Sox lead the Series (3-0)

I plead the 5th...inning that is. Red Sox/Rockies Game 2

Game 1 hinged on the action in the 5th inning, and Game 2 was no different for the Red Sox scoring efforts. Here is how things started.

World Series Game 2 started off looking like the Rockies were going to be very aggressive and run on Curt Schilling and the Red Sox. The Rockies started the game with Taveras stepping into the box and was "grazed" on the knuckles and was on first, 2 pitches into the game. Matsui stepped in and flied out F-8, and Matt Holliday proceeded to hit a single to left when Taveras hit the bag at second and headed to 3rd. Holliday ended up at 2nd on a throwing error by Mike Lowell. Todd Helton gets up and grounds to first and the Rockies were on the board 1-0. Atkins grounded out 5-3 for the final out of the inning. It looked like the Rockies were going to be aggressive.

It only lasted 1 inning, and the only other threat was in the 8th. Read on to find out why.

That was, until they saw Curt Schilling settle in. Schilling looked like he has fully settled starting in the top of the 3rd. Schilling went 5 1/3 with 2 walks, and 4 K's. He looked great in what some are calling his final outing in a Red Sox uniform. Free agency awaits Schilling in the off season....where will he end up?


The Rockies started their 23 year old rookie sensation Ubaldo Jimenez who has velocity in the high 90's. Joe Buck and Tim McCarver said that he would hit 100+, and that never happened.

Jimenez walked 5 and stuck out only 2.

Both the Red Sox and the Rockies stranded to many runner on the bases and with key fly outs and ground ball out. The Red Sox stranded 12 and the Rockies 11. That will make for a close game, which it was.

Schilling was relieved by Hideki Okajima who went 2 1/3 in relief and was spot on. He had 4 K's out of 7 batters and the other 3 were 2 ground outs and a fly out. He was key in this Boston win. Papelbon closed the contest out for the Red Sox, and also made the key play in the game in the 8th inning. Matt Holliday who was 4-4 for the Rockies hit a single in the 8th and fell asleep (not literally) during his lead and was picked off at first. This was key because Todd Helton was up with 2 outs and with a swing of the bat the Rockies could have gone ahead. With Holliday making the 3rd out, Helton never made it to the dish.

Red Sox 2

Rockies 1

Red Sox lead the series (2-0)

Game 3 Saturday night 8 p.m. EST on Fox

-------------------------------

America can thank Jacoby Ellsbury for stealing second in the bottom of the 4th, because he won everyone in the USA a free beef taco at Taco Bell.

World Series Game 1 Rockies / Red Sox

(Click on any picture for a larger view.)

If you look at the above picture and know just the slightest about baseball, you will know that Josh Beckett is unstoppable. It happened for the 4th time since October 3rd that he has been unbeatable. Beckett has allowed only 5 runs in the last 4 straight wins, and will be the starter for game 5 if necessary.

Beckett racked up 9 K's in 7 innings of work followed by Mike Timlin who worked the 8th and had 2 K's for himself. Eric Gagne held on to the 12 run lead with 3 up and 3 down in the 9th.

Tonight for Game 2 on Fox @ 8 pm EST, Curt Schilling brings his post season resume to the table and will show what he has done in the past. Win.

The offense was started with the lead off batter Dustin Pedroia, who hit a solo shot to start the game. That was his 2nd post season HR, his first of the World Series.

The Red Sox had plays in the game that were going their way, like here in the top of the 3rd, it's Manny being Manny...

After 4 innings last night the score was 6-1 Red Sox, and the 5th is an inning that the Rockies sure would love to forget about.

It went a little something like this:

Bot 5th: Boston

- K. Youkilis doubled to left, J. Ellsbury scored
- D. Ortiz doubled to deep center, K. Youkilis scored
- M. Ramirez singled to left center, D. Ortiz scored
- J.D. Drew singled to shortstop, M. Ramirez scored, M. Lowell to third, J. Varitek to second
- J. Lugo walked, M. Lowell scored, J. Varitek to third, J.D. Drew to second
- J. Ellsbury walked, J. Varitek scored, J.D. Drew to third, J. Lugo to second
- D. Pedroia walked, J.D. Drew scored, J. Lugo to third, J. Ellsbury to second

The 3 straight walks given up by Ryan Speier didn't help the cause for Colorado. It was Franklin Morales that relieved Jeff Francis and the doubles started to flow in the bottom of the 5th. Morales threw like they were on a tee, and Speier couldn't have hit the strike zone if it was 10' X 12' high. The bullpen didn't make a great first impression with what was on the field in Game 1, as compared to what they were made out to be.

Overall it was a great night to be a Red Sox fan, and watch a game that should have been called with the slaughter rule after 6 innings.

Red Sox 13

Colorado 1

Boston leads the series (1-0)

Indy vs Jacksonville MNF

In the last meeting between Indy and Jacksonville the Jaguar's ran allover Indy racking up 375 total yards. Monday night Indy would put a halt to that. If you didn't see the game you didn't miss much. It was a Jacksonville's defense that looked like a brown paper bag with huge holes in it. The Jaguar's starting QB, David Garrard was taken out of the game in the first quarter and it didn't help the cause at all.

It was all downhill for the Jag's.

Peyton looked good, but I think that my nephews Pop Warner team would have scored against the defense of Jacksonville. In a final of 29-7, the Colts move to 6-0 for the 3rd season in a row and will face the Patriots in 2 weeks.

When the game was over the big debate is "who is the better team, the Colts, or the Patriots?"

You make the call.

Red Sox take Game 7 - World Series bound!!

Deja Vu? Nope.

The Red Sox played a game 7 like they wanted it. It was a struggle after game 1 and being down 3-1 in the series, they played as if they wanted it more. I have thought from the beginning that the Indians were a team with an attitude to win. They were tied with the Red Sox in wins this year (96) and gave the Sox a run for their money.

Just as I mentioned the only way that the Red Sox were to win Game 7 was to get production up front and in the bottom 3rd of the line-up. They did just that, like they did in Game 6. Pedroia came up big in Game 7 going 3-5 with 5 RBI's. His hits were a single, double that clean all the ducks on the pond (3), and a 2 run homer in the 8th. Youkilis was also 3-5 in the game and that was an important part of the game to get out front. Getting out front didn't happen until a 6 run 8th that broke it wide open.

In this game their was a key play where Kenny Lofton was held up at third on a ball that was fair down the third base line and then took a Fenway bounce off the wall in foul ground and into shallow left. The third base coach was waving Kenny home and that would have tied the game at 3, but instead he changed his mind and held him up. the Red Sox got out of the inning on a double play ball from Casey Blake.

Here is a look at the bottom of the 8th where all the damage was done:

Bottom 8th: Boston
- M. Ramirez popped out to second
- M. Lowell doubled to center
- J.D. Drew singled to center, M. Lowell scored
- J. Varitek ground rule double to left, J.D. Drew to third
- J. Ellsbury intentionally walked
- J. Lugo struck out swinging
- D. Pedroia doubled to center, J. Varitek, J.D. Drew and J. Ellsbury scored
- J. Lewis relieved R. Betancourt
- K. Youkilis homered to deep left, D. Pedroia scored
- D. Ortiz struck out swinging
6 runs, 5 hits, 0 errors
Cleveland 2, Boston 11


Jake Westbrook was good through the 6, and was with the assistance of the Red Sox and double play balls in the 1st, 2nd, and 4th innings to get the Indians out of trouble. This game was a close game up till the 7th inning, despite the score being 11-2. Momentum was swaying back in forth in this game and it was anybody's contest up in the first 6 innings.

The Red Sox will host the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night at Fenway Park.

Josh Beckett who was available tonight to go 2 innings if needed was awarded the ALCS M.V.P.

For the full box score, Click Here.

Who knew? I guess J.D Drew knew...

He said that he was going up there and looking for something to hit up the middle. He found it and J.D Drew hit a rope to center field that made it over the wall in deep center for a grand slam and a 4-0 lead for the Red Sox. Fausto Carmona, the Indians pitchers didn't have it at all. He walked 4 and couldn't get out of the 2nd inning. Before Carmona left he had given up 7 earned runs and it was out of reach at that point.

One of the points that I made on our show yesterday was that the Red Sox had to get production out of the 7,8,9 hitters and also Pedroia to make it work in game 6. That bottom 3rd of the order was 4-13 with 2 walks and 6 RBI's. In the top 2 spots the Red Sox had Dustin Pedroia and Kevin Youkilis both contributing a combined 5-8 with 2 walks and 1 RBI. Manny and Ortiz were quite for the Sox and with the help of the bottom 3rd and the top 2 in the line-up, the Sox force Game 7 tonight @ Fenway.

Cleveland will have Game 3 starter Jake Westbrook on the hill going against Dice K for the Red Sox.

I wanted to mention and I don't know if anyone that watched the game felt the same way, but did you think that Victor Martinez was trotting around the bases at warp speed? I felt that was the start of what was going to be a bench clearing situation later on. During the early innings, Eric Wedge didn't like the calls from behind the plate and with that in the air and the Martinez (Manny like) trot, I figured that was on the horizon.

It was great to see Schilling stay composed in the 3rd inning where things almost got away from him, and the solo shot and trot wasn't a factor in the 2nd for him. Sox win 12-2.

Tonight, Game 7 @ Fenway on Fox at 8:07 EST

Torre says NO, Red Sox say GO!

Joe Torre, Manager of the New York Yankees turned down a 1 year contract worth 5 million due to the terms being more based upon performance. Joe had enough and told George that he is all set, and walked. I would be very curious where he ends up and what he is making next year. Just one thing he can throw in George's face when the season starts next April. Offering him 2.5 million less that what he made this year is an insult. FU George! Way to go Joe!

Tonight, the Red Sox were facing elimination and faced the devil in Cleveland and came through with a 7-1 victory. The series is Cleveland up 3-2 and they are headed back to Fenway for game 6 and 7. The players for Cleveland before the game were saying that they would like to finish it up tonight, but I hate to say it, it just wasn't so. See you in Boston...for game 6

For more information on who scored and when, check out the box score presented by Yahoo Sports. Click here for the box score.

Tonight it was all Josh Beckett going 8 innings and walking just one batter on 11 K's. Amazing night for Beckett and a wrap I would say for the Cy Young Award.

Sox/Tribe Game 4

This is a tough one to write about as a Red Sox fan. I have so many opinions and questions for Tito Francona, so here goes.

Tito, why didn't you use Jacoby Ellsbury, in right field when J.D Drew isn't doing shit for the team in the playoffs?

Tito, why are the starters not able to get out of the 5th inning?

Why isn't Jon Lester in the starting rotation? He looked great tonight in the game and seemed to get stronger as time went on.

Why is Pedroia leading off when his bat is as cold as some of the women that I have spoken with in my life? Switch it up for Jesus sake...

O.K, now that I have that off my chest I can tell you that Tim Wakefield looked great through 4 and when trying to field a ball that could have saved a run if it went through, was all push that the dam needed to burst. Casey Blake (Grizzly Adams) busted a HR in the 5th and then the fielding attempt by Wakefield was followed by a 3 run blast by Jhonny Peralta. The Tribe showed how to put up a quick 7.

In the top of the 6th, the Sox decided to show some of their muscle with back-toback-to-back home runs by Kevin Youkilis , Ortiz and Manny Ramirez. That was all the gas that the Red Sox had. The Red Sox are down 3-1 in the series. Game 5 is Thursday night and the Sox will try to force a trip back to Fenway.

The Rockies swept out West and are off for 8 days before they face either of these AL teams. Stay tuned for more action.

As a reminder, I will be hosting my weekly podcast/talkcast on http://www.talkshoe.com/ and I will be revealing the schedule for the "Today's Sports Beat" show on Talkshoe. Join us tomorrow night for our show- "Sound Check...". Our talkcast ID is 45577, and all you have to do to find us is look us up by either the ID, or the name. We are on at 11:30 pm EST for 1 hour.

Hope to see you there and I hope that you are enjoying the content here again!

Red Sox/Indians & Giants/Falcons

I am sure that at this point, some Red Sox fans are on the edge of their seats. Last night the Red Sox fell to the Indian's 4-2 losing Game 3 and going down 2-1 in the ALCS.

Tonight is a huge game for the Red Sox.

The Game 4 Starter for the Red Sox is 15 year veteran knuckleballer, Tim Wakefield (17-12) and he will be facing Paul Byrd (15-8) who shut down the Yankees and brought the Indians to the ALCS.

Game time is 8:07 EST on Fox

Tonight's line for Game 4:
Red Sox -1.5 (+130) Moneyline -110
Indians +1.5 (-150) Moneyline EVEN

Under/Over is 10
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Last night it looked like Eli Manning may have turned the corner for the NY Giants. He started out a little shaky, but settled in nicely with some nice passes to Plaxico Burress who went 6 passes for 97 yards in the 31-10 win. The Giants will face the 49ers at the Meadowlands next Sunday. They will be going for 5 in a row.

As for the Falcons, they are no doubt in a rebuilding year. Joey Harrington isn't the best QB, and the defense looked like it had many holes in it last night. I hope that they get the money back from Michael Vick so that they can have some flexability in the salary cap for next season. They need player. The Falcons are 0-5.

We are back!!!

It has been over a year and I was thinking how I could revive the Sports site...and I found a way. I am going to start blogging here again, and also match this site up with a podcast/talkcast on sports that will feature on www.talkshoe.com
