OK, so several people have emailed me, begging the Vice President of Red Sox Nation to blog about the rest of this Cleveland series. When Rem Dawg appointed me, he gave me a crystal ball, and this is what I see:
Sox will win tonight. Beckett is pitching. Beckett is like the ace of spades, he beats all comers.
Sox will then come home for game 6 on a big high, very confident, and Curt Schilling was born to win do-or-die game 6’s. One way or another, he (and the team) will find a way to win.
Then we’ll have game 7 in Fenway. The Indians players won’t be able to shake that fear that they’re about to choke away a 3-1 series lead. The Sox will KNOW they’re going to win, having taken the last two in a row. We’ll be ready to throw a committee out there (Daisuke, Okajima, Lester, Timlin, Papelbon) but we won’t need to because the Sox will slug their way to a dominating no-doubter.
