Get ready for a seventh game on Hallowe'en night in Boston.

Young Goodman Brown is rested and ready to pinch-run for the Sox....

If you so much as adjust your cup, you will wake up with a horse's head in your bed. See that man over there with a bat? If he starts running this way, I want you to go like hell toward that base over there by the little guy with a beard, and dump him on his ass if he gets in your way. Then go and see my colleague, Mr. Oquendo. He will make you another offer that you can't refuse."
Kolten can speak English just fine. He's from Hawaii. I can't believe it's 2013 and we still have these comments.

Interesting lineups tonight on both sides.

I do hope Craig doesn't hurt himself. Luckily for him, Sox best bunter, Victorino, is out tonight.

Then why didn't he understand when the coach (presumably) told him to stay close to the bag? You do realize, don't you, that one of the challenges of coaching at first base, is communicating with runners whose might have difficulty with English, and I don't think there is anything reprehensible about making that observation "in 2013", whatever the hell that has to do with anything. Or are se supposed to be politically correct, and pretend that there are no language problems in MLB players who are not fluent in English, because it might make them pout to have somebody admit it. Don't forget my insensitivity for referring to a "little guy", who is probably very self conscious about that.

Now, if we can go back to analyzing what is happening on the field, instead of building a more formidable monster of political correctness,
If Craig can play first replacing Adams, why can't he play third replacing Freese?

It's the first inning, and I predict the final score will be 1-0.

Winning run forced in when batter is awarded firstbase on catcher's interference?

Apparent walk off home run strikes bird a few feet from the outfield wall and is caught?

Batter hits apparent walk off home run but is ruled out for passing teammate on basepath while trotting it out?
Fifty bizarre world series endings....

Red Sox completely demolishing the Cardinals. They could have won the games that the Cards won, but there is no way the Cards were ever a threat in the games the Sox won. It could very easily been a sweep.

I wouldn't call it a demolition.

Lester was great tonight. Aside from the Holiday HR, he was in control and kept the Cardinals down. The Cardinals have not been good against lefties this season.

Except for the best lefty in the game. How can that be that they have Kershaw's number but no one else's?
