Last nights extra inning win over the Yanks was one of the best games in a long time. It's a good thing because the ESPN broadcast crew was painful to listen to. I must have said "shut up" a dozen times to the TV!

You are right about that Dun...about ESPN.

I usually go with Joe Castiglione on the radio.

....

A few classic moments with Eckersley and Clemons in "in the booth" together on TV last week!
That was classic.

I used to turn the TV down and listen to the radio broadcast but now they have a delay.I saw the Eck and Rocket, that's how you cover baseball.
But the ESPN crew was so bad they'd get so wrapped up in a conversation that has nothing to do with the game and miss announcing who's at bat!

That Mookie Betts catch in the second was a real mood-changer.
Who pitches tomorrow, I don't even know. Nice to have another game though.

 The weather forecast is a total disaster. The best they can do is play Tuesday afternoon and then fly to Houston. (*)

(*) Assuming they win, of course.

The Sox are at a historic level of hotness right now!

15-2.

And weirdly, have hit four grand slams in the last ten games...
after hitting zero grand slams all last year

I'm going to my first game in years soon, a Sunday afternoon game.

Advice for best travel plans: Drive in and park somewhere, not necessarily near Fenway? Take the T all the way?

They are now in franchise record territory.

Five teams in baseball history have had a 17-2 start. In 1955, the Dodgers went on to 22-2 before dropping two in a row (and later winning the world series.)  So if the Sox go on to 23-2, they set an MLB record.
OTOH, the Dodgers, at 17-2, were a measly 59 runs ahead.  They didn't have all these grand slams. The Sox didn't have a single Grand Slam in 2017.

Taking the train from Gloucester is always a fun way to go.
That's how I did it the last few games. If you have the time, and like the rails.

It is kind of nice to be without a car.

I used to take public transportation from the Gloucester depot in. Waiting for the train back never bothered me because you can stop for food in or around north station.

I literally can not remember when I last took a car to Boston, although I actually had one for a while when I lived in Cambridge. Even then the parking in Boston stank so I would take the bus or red line. Downtown Boston is great for walking.
