Pure Premium at Tropicana Field

At 8:37pm tonight, all eyes, or at least mine, will be on this guy and the Red Sox as they play the first game of the ALCS series against the Tampa Bay Rays. Dice-K Matsuzaka is on the mound and we hope he has his A-game on................. Go Red Sox!!!!!!!

Oct 11th: Next day follow up: THEY WON! Now it's Josh Becketts turn 2.

Oct.12th: next, next day follow up: They Lost........ but they are coming back to Fenway and I'm sure Jon Lester will do it for 3.

Oct. 15th: Ok, it's panic time. Lester, then Wakefield, failed to produe a win at home. Now we are down 3 games to 1. Tomorrow, after a day off, it is our last chance to stay in the games. If they don't win on Thursday, it's time to clean out the lockers and say "there's always next year"............

Oct. 16th: Can you believe it! The Red Sox comeback from a 7-0 deficit in Game 5 of the American League Championship Series to beat the Rays 8-7 tonight and cut Tampa Bay's series lead to 3-2. It was the second largest comeback in postseason history, eclipsed only by the Philadelphia A's rallying from 8-0 down to beat the Cubs in Game 4 of the 1929 World Series. But no team facing postseason elimination had ever rallied back from seven or more runs down. Talk about an October comeback......... Now they're off to Tampa Bay looking to take two more, and we better not doubt it.

Oct 18th: Game 6, They Won! And now, each team has 3 wins. The 7th game is tomorrow night and hopefully Jon Lester can take us to the World Series aganst the Philadelphia Phillies. While the Phillies have had a week to rest since they won their National League title, that didn't seem to work too well for the Colorado Rockies last year. The RedSox seem to be at their best as along as they keep playing. Good luck guys..................
