I love Baseball. I can be thinking this is the last game, we've done well, but it's time.........wait .......wait.....did you see Mookies catch?!!!! One play changes the world!
Of course many of our players played hard and got us here today. This week, every game is one of those all or die games! GO RED SOX!!!!!



Charlie Morton, RHP

Morton won his only start against Boston this season, going 5 1/3 innings and allowing two runs at Fenway Park on Sept. 29.

Rick Porcello, RHP
Porcello’s season was a far cry from his Cy Young campaign a year ago, but he could help Sox fans forget that with a solid start in Game 4. Porcello has a 5.82 ERA in three career postseason starts with Boston in 2016 and Detroit in 2011.



ps Thank you David Price
They're here. Every April, they're here. At 1:05 or at 7:05, there is a game. And if it gets rained out, guess what? They make it up to you.

At 9:50 am the forecast says light rain all afternoon. I haven't seen anything about game delay .

WFH lunch break with the FS1 pre-game show on. Actually it's the Big Papi show. He is an unabashed, cheer leading homer and makes ARod and the others look ... small.

He's even got his batting helmet with him, and claims Mookie is watching him "right now!".

I love David Ortiz.

Porcello has to work out of trouble in the first
inning. But only gives up 1 run. So I hope he comes back.
