Following the euphoric walk off courtesy of Big Papi again last night I am feeling extremely confident that the sox can follow up with win number two tonight.
Despite JJ’s two previous performances I believe I will step up tonight, I believe this as I was lucky/unlucky enough to not witness either of his previous starts and am basing what I see on his Triple A stats not his recent big league stats!
Also pitching against his own team, surely this will provide extra motivation and he can deliver.
On the trade front as good as it would have been I am not overly upset of no changes, I would not have wanted to lose any of the current every day players, I believe Coco will come good, and I am a big fan of Willy Mo, have been championing him since he joined even if I do miss Bronson!
My prediction for tonight is another close game sox by two runs with Johnson lasting long enough to pick up the W!
(I hope I am correct!)
Prediction for this weekends series against the Angels. The angels have been hot of late catching up in the AL West again. However I am predicting the Sox to return to Boston and have a strong series. I expect at least two wins but have a feeling a big run is around the corner again so I am predicting the Sox to sweep!!!!
Last game in Oakland just one run very dissapointing so this weekend is going to make up for it with Manny continuing his streak!!!
Roll on the deadline although I am expecting no changes. Maybe Theo will surprise me!
Beckett gets the run support and comes through for win number 13. The best thing about this is that this is generally accepted as a season lacking consistency from Beckett!! What will happen if he can have a consistent year – or maybe I am thinking to far ahead and I should just hope for a consistent September & October!!
Side news – Premiership in England starts soon and I am predicting Liverpool to win it for the first time in 17 years!!! You read it here first, I will also suffer through that season as soon as the baseball finishes, thats the problem when is there a break from all the stress!?!?
To those of you who replied thankyou! Good to know people read my random thoughts and dont feel I am a bandwagon jumper!!!!
Although I partied the night of Game 4 in St Louis I have to admit that the victory came to early for me to understand what it really meant, it is only now I can start to understand, I just hope the wait next time isn’t to long as I love to party and am ready to see the Sox celebrate again!
Ok so another loss last night, but how good was Varitek s homer? That was pure clutch surely a good sign as the important time of year heads our way.
I am still feeling positive particularly if Coco can continue as he played last night. The fight in that team is looking good.
Tonight Beckett on the mound? Good Gosh or Bad Josh? Excuse the pun I couldn’t resist. I am hopeful for a solid outing on the road for a change.
So a little about me, I am not from Mass or even the USA, I lived in the USA for 18 months and caught the Red Sox bug, ok I arrived in New York in September 2004, and immediately disliked the Yankees, I am English and they reminded me to much of Man United that will make sense to any soccer fans reading, (if anyone ever does read this that is!)
Yes, September 2004 makes me a bandwagon jumper if they hadnt been 3 down would I have ever become part of Red Sox nation? Honestly I dont know, I know the "Idiots" made me appreciate and become obsessed with a whole new game, which I will be forever thankful for.
Anyway enough for now, I have the game to look forward to courtesy of MLB.com at 3am tomorrow morning, the joys of being an international baseball fun!
If anyone ever writes this feel free to contact me, I promise to reply!
