Hey, this beer is warm!


BTW, that's a classic. I do
   3. Darren Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:19 AM (#2598127)
Also a shout out to all the Red Sox fans here on Primer. Everyone hates us now but I still love us. Woot!
   4. Sam M. Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:19 AM (#2598129)
How 'bout them Sox? Congrats. Best team in baseball, all year long. Much deserved.
   5. Answer Guy Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:19 AM (#2598131)
Fortune has smiled on New England again. This will never cease to be weird to me.
   6. Darren Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:20 AM (#2598136)
Wondertwin powers activate! Form of a giant Red Sock, shape of an ice broom! Sweep. The twins remain undefeated!

Everyone hates us now but I still love us. Woot!

And it's going to get worse. But such is the price you pay.

Congratulations everyone.

And Wok comes through in the clutch, delivering the inappropriate comment that we've all come to depend on him for!
   11. 1k5v3L Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:23 AM (#2598153)
God must've taken a vacation. He'd never let this happen to his chosen team.

Newsflash to O'Dowd and Monfart: God doesn't give a rat's arse about your team. Really.

Congrats to the Red Sox on a great year. They were the best team in baseball, and deserved this.

And thanks to the Sox for saving us from more articles about how the Rockies are the chosen people.
   12. chemdoc Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:23 AM (#2598154)
Everyone hates us now but I still love us. Woot!


Stay classy, Sox nation.

Enjoy your celebration.

Good job Sox Therapy.

The Red Sox were better than the Rockies. It is correct that they won.
   17. chris p Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:26 AM (#2598166)
that was fun!
   18. John DiFool2 Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:26 AM (#2598168)
I have never followed a team as closely as I did this year (thanks to MLB's webcasts-I live nowhere near a ML city), and frankly it wore me out to death. But after Beckett's ALCS game 5 win I knew they had "it" again, just like in '04.
   19. Pat Rapper's Delight Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:29 AM (#2598179)
I hardly watched the Sox in '04. Couldn't watch. Didn't want to jinx them. My wife called me in to come watch with 2 out in the bottom of the 9th in Game 4 against St. Louis.

I watched as much as I possibly could this post-season. I think my own personal curse is over.
   20. John DiFool2 Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:29 AM (#2598183)
The key to this season is the faith the Sox showed in their kids. Without them Cleveland is probably out there tonite celebrating. Most organizations probably wouldn't have stuck a September callup in CF in the middle of a do or die postseason series.
   21. SoSHially Unacceptable Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:30 AM (#2598185)
Great performance capping off a start-to-finish great season.

Lowell was a fitting MVP, though it again could have been a bunch of guys.
   22. Infinite Joost (Voxter) Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:31 AM (#2598188)
I have nothing coherent to say. Just wanted to be on the front page. So here's my comment:


!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Congrats to the Rockies and their fans. I probably would have been rooting for you had the opponent been anybody else.
   23. Repoz Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:32 AM (#2598189)
I just left a bar full of Yankee fans totally beside themselves (re: cocainic attack) with the A-Rod deal and the Sox winning.

Blow Ajax, blow!
   24. Joel W Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:33 AM (#2598192)
I'm just smiling, there's really not much else to do. I guess my optimism was rewarded.

What a great team. 11-3 in the playoffs, so 107-69, pretty damn good. And that's while playing under their pythag! and resting for a month heading into the playoffs.

But really, they checked off everything on the list. Win the division. Best record in baseball. Win the World Series.

And oh yeah, develop young guys. God I'm excited for next year too.
   25. Tom Cervo, backup catcher Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:35 AM (#2598195)
I'll try to not be a jerk and congratulate the Sox fans here. I guess I can be happy for most of you here.

Now can your team please go back to sucking in the playoffs? K thx bye.
   26. Xander Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:35 AM (#2598196)
Joshy got the Wheaties box.
   27. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:36 AM (#2598199)
Whoo! I wanted Ellsbury to get the MVP, but it really doesn't matter all that much.
   28. Sam M. Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:37 AM (#2598201)
You realize, don't you, that this century is starting out pretty much like the last one did? Then, they won two titles in the first 9 World Series (1903, 1912). This time, it's two in the first eight World Series (2004, 2007).

I've got some good news: three more are coming soon!!!

And I've got some bad news . . . . ;-)
   29. rLr Is King Of The Romans And Above Grammar Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:38 AM (#2598206)
And I've got some bad news . . . . ;-)

These guys are Primates. They'll have drunk themselves to death before they have to endure too many of those lean years.
   30. IronChef Chris Wok Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:38 AM (#2598207)
So, what time is the game tomorrow?

*ducks*
   31. Infinite Joost (Voxter) Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:39 AM (#2598209)
I said this in the chatter, but I'll say it again: I feel like this is the best Sox team of my lifetime. They seemed inevitable. I just knew. Even when I doubted . . . I knew. They were too good. In the real world, that could totally have gone wrong. But it didn't.
   32. Dan Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:39 AM (#2598210)
I said this after game 1 vs. Cleveland (at least that's when I think it was? it was in some ST thread): This team is the best baseball team I've ever followed. No, they don't hit quite like the 2003-2004 squads, but their pitching is slightly better, and their defense is miles, miles better. I love this team twice as much as I liked the 2004 squad.
   33. Exploring Leftist Conservatism since 2008 (ark..) Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:39 AM (#2598211)
Congrats, Red Sox. Very well done.
   34. Random Transaction Generator Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:40 AM (#2598213)
PLAYOFF CO-MVP'S - PHIL'S SPERM AND MRS. PHIL'S EGGS!!!!

I don't even know what that means...
   35. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:40 AM (#2598214)
I don't even know what that means...

They didn't lose a game after Phil Coorey's second kid was born.
   36. Hugh Jorgan Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:40 AM (#2598215)
Biff, you and I mate, never waivered all season. Congrats to the Rox on a great season and WHOOOO-effing-HOOO to all those Sox fans!
So next season, whats our starting rotation?
   37. Dan Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:40 AM (#2598216)
Damnit Voxter, you stole my sentiments by mere seconds.
   38. Xander Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:41 AM (#2598217)
Can we start talking about the 2008 Draft?
   39. rLr Is King Of The Romans And Above Grammar Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:41 AM (#2598218)
I don't even know what that means...

It means Wok is perilously close to violating the restraining order.
   40. Joel W Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:41 AM (#2598219)
This is definitely the best Sox team I've followed.
   41. Dan Evensen Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:42 AM (#2598220)
Congrats to the Sox fans! Sorry the Rox couldn't make it exciting.
   42. Joel W Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:42 AM (#2598221)
Oh and Jon ############# Lester. That was awesome.
   43. Infinite Joost (Voxter) Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:43 AM (#2598222)
Oh and Jon ############# Lester. That was awesome.

This is true.
   44. Hugh Jorgan Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:44 AM (#2598224)
The starters did a nice job. However in saying that, the Rox were never really hitting even before the series. We just needed to get our 4+ runs a game and it was pretty much a done deal.
   45. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:45 AM (#2598225)
Girls are 7-0!!!

Best few weeks of my life
   46. Joel W Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:45 AM (#2598226)
This Sox team had 103 "Third Order Wins." That was while sitting one of their best hitters for a month when he probably could have played in some of it.

I'm not sure what the team that played in the playoffs was on its true talent level, but it's a Great team. It had the Manny that didn't really exist all year, and the JD Drew that was expected coming in, and Ellsbury who is superior to Crisp. I'd put the team that just played those last 14 games up against almost any team I can remember.
   47. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:45 AM (#2598227)
And Wok comes through in the clutch, delivering the inappropriate comment that we've all come to depend on him for!

I thought it was hilarious, and true!!!
   48. Pat Rapper's Delight Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:45 AM (#2598228)
Mientkiewicz doesn't have the ball, does he?
   49. Infinite Joost (Voxter) Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:46 AM (#2598231)
I'm going to cross-post this from the chatter, even the part about how it's a stupid question, because it's a stupid question that makes me happy:

So, this has occurred to me. Obviously, if he retires tomorrow, Tito is not a Hall of Famer. But if he hangs around for another seven or eight years, and the Sox continue to be similarly successful, does he make the Hall of Fame? Would he deserve to? I mean, Joe Torre seems like a no-brainer. Would Tito, come 2015, if the Sox continue to make the playoffs all the time?

This is a dumb question, but I'm posting it anyway.
   50. Infinite Joost (Voxter) Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:48 AM (#2598236)
Mientkiewicz doesn't have the ball, does he?

(insert crude comment about Mike Lowell's testicles here)
   51. IronChef Chris Wok Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:48 AM (#2598237)
I thought it was hilarious, and true!!!

Pop a few more out!!! WHOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
   52. Jay Seaver Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:48 AM (#2598238)
Man, this feels good. I can definitely get used to this feeling.
   53. The Piehole of David Wells Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:49 AM (#2598240)
on the los angeles fox channel, they're showing the celebration at sonny mclean's. rocking joint. people were watching the game from outside.
   54. Sean Forman Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:49 AM (#2598241)
No, I saw Varitek tuck the ball into his pocket running out to Papelbon.
   55. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:50 AM (#2598244)
Paps looked exhausted in the post game interviews. he was my MVP, just like Foulkie in 2004.

God love him!!!
   56. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:53 AM (#2598246)
Can we start talking about the 2008 Draft?

Agree, what about A Rod?? Lets just resign Mikey Lowell!!!
   57. Pat Rapper's Delight Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:53 AM (#2598249)
also x-posted from Chatter, when does the World Series DVD hit store shelves?
   58. Jorge Luis Bourjos (Walewander) Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:53 AM (#2598248)
Congratulations Red Sox fans. Even when they made it hard, the team was just too good to lose.
   59. Pleasant Nate (Upgraded from 'Nate') Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:53 AM (#2598250)
Congrats to the Red Sox and all their fans. It's been a great year following this team, and looking to the future just brings even more joy.

With 2004 shaking all of the curse nonsense and now 2007 proving we could do it again, is it time for Sox Therapy to get a new name?
   60. HowardMegdal Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:54 AM (#2598252)
Congratulations, Red Sox fans! Anyone who begrudges you two titles in four years after the drought you went through is an idiot. And not the good, Kevin Millar kind of idiot.
   61. IronChef Chris Wok Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:54 AM (#2598253)
Agree, what about A Rod??

Please kindly leave the AL.
   62. SoSHially Unacceptable Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:56 AM (#2598257)
Agree, what about A Rod?? Lets just resign Mikey Lowell!!!


I'm with you here. I hope he's gone from NY, but I'd really prefer the Red Sox let him go somewhere else.
   63. Darren Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:58 AM (#2598261)
Wow, good to see Joel and Sean come out of the woodwork! Where's OleP these days? If you're reading OleP, I'm thinking of you!

Have to agree with the sentiments about Lester. What a great thing for him.
   64. Hugh Jorgan Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:59 AM (#2598265)
So the statement...new starting SS...Alex Rodriguez...wouldn't excite you?
   65. Gambling Rent Czar Posted: October 29, 2007 at 04:59 AM (#2598266)
Agree, what about A Rod??

Please kindly leave the AL.


No way. He is LA of Anaheim bound.
   66. Dan Posted: October 29, 2007 at 05:00 AM (#2598270)
Can't we just sign ARod to play SS and Lowell to play 3B?

CF Ellsbury
2B Pedroia
SS Arod
DH Ortiz
LF Ramirez
RF Drew
3B Lowell
1b Youkilis
C Varitek

Now THAT's a lineup.
   67. Darren Posted: October 29, 2007 at 05:02 AM (#2598274)
Seriously guys, WTF are you talking about next year already for? Great season, great ending! Enjoy the moment!
   68. Joel W Posted: October 29, 2007 at 05:03 AM (#2598272)
Darren I have been back for like a month now!

And Hugh, even though this team w/ ARod next year could win an unfathomable amount of games, and even though I even kind of like A-Rod, I just don't want him. I just don't want to deal with the bullshit associated with him.
   69. Matt Clement of Alexandria Posted: October 29, 2007 at 05:04 AM (#2598275)
!!!!!!!!!!!

Just ran down Boylston, it's a really good level of crazy there. Not the once-in-a-lifetime carnivale of 2004, but just a whole lot of people celebrating, Dominican flags everywhere. It's great.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This was a great game. Great season. So many players who are so much fun to watch. I'm a very lucky fan right now.
   70. Matt Clement of Alexandria Posted: October 29, 2007 at 05:06 AM (#2598277)
Thanks, Darren, for running Sox Therapy all year! Awesome work. Best place to talk Sox there is.
   71. IronChef Chris Wok Posted: October 29, 2007 at 05:07 AM (#2598278)

They're not burning Japanese flags are they?
   72. Hugh Jorgan Posted: October 29, 2007 at 05:07 AM (#2598279)
Darren, I wouldn't have mentioned next year except for the A-rod announcement and of course Schillings undetermined status, but hey you're right...time to enjoy. I'll go home tonight and enjoy several cold ones...
   73. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: October 29, 2007 at 05:07 AM (#2598280)
I just can't get over Lester today - wow, just wow.

EDIT - What about the Keilty homer??? That was huge
   74. Darren Posted: October 29, 2007 at 05:07 AM (#2598281)
I know Joel, just nice to see you here more regularly is all. Good to see all of you here. What a year! Francona's a genius!
   75. Matt Clement of Alexandria Posted: October 29, 2007 at 05:08 AM (#2598282)
Wow, good to see Joel and Sean come out of the woodwork! Where's OleP these days? If you're reading OleP, I'm thinking of you!
Bartlebooth, anywhere? Chris R?

And congrats, Phil. This must be about as good as it gets. (I can send you a Globe again - let me know.)
   76. Matt Clement of Alexandria Posted: October 29, 2007 at 05:09 AM (#2598284)
I just can't get over Lester today - wow, just wow.
Absolutely. How many months from his last chemo to clinching the World Series? Eight months? Just incredible.
   77. Infinite Joost (Voxter) Posted: October 29, 2007 at 05:11 AM (#2598286)
is it time for Sox Therapy to get a new name?

Sox Populi?
   78. Joel W Posted: October 29, 2007 at 05:12 AM (#2598289)
MCA I can't say I'm jealous that you're in Boston right now (as living in New York is great), but that's a great feeling there.

And I have to say, Francona really does impress me (though I know you're joking Darren, a bit). I guess I just mean that during the season, we fault his tactical decisions, but we never really know all of the long term considerations being considered. In the playoffs though, we see his strategies unfiltered. Even though there were a few mistakes, I was generally very happy. Going to Paps early and often is great. Putting in Ellsbury is reminiscent of the guy who made the move for Papelbon over Foulke and kept Bellhorn in at 2nd. He's a good manager.
   79. Gambling Rent Czar Posted: October 29, 2007 at 05:12 AM (#2598290)
Dusty Baker looks pimp explaining how and why the Sox won the series, you see.
He would be good for the Red Sox, you see. If this Francona fella, ever feels disrespected. Dusty could be a good fit, you see.
   80. The Piehole of David Wells Posted: October 29, 2007 at 05:13 AM (#2598293)
i love "sox populi." great idea.
   81. Darren Posted: October 29, 2007 at 05:14 AM (#2598294)
And I have to say, Francona really does impress me (though I know you're joking Darren, a bit).


I'm joking a bit, but I'm also trying to give him his due. It's easy to criticize from where I sit, but he's the one doing the job and he's getting it done. He deserves his share of credit for their success.

   83. tfbg9 Posted: October 29, 2007 at 05:16 AM (#2598301)
Francona is a great skipper. I'm very happy right now.
   84. Phil Coorey is a T-Shirt Salesman Posted: October 29, 2007 at 05:16 AM (#2598302)
And congrats, Phil. This must be about as good as it gets. (I can send you a Globe again - let me know.)

That would be swell, I'll contact you by email after this thread (and the A Rod one) settles down!!!
   85. Darren Posted: October 29, 2007 at 05:17 AM (#2598304)
I'm very happy right now.


I believe that is a first. :) Congrats!
   86. Pat Rapper's Delight Posted: October 29, 2007 at 05:17 AM (#2598306)

Ditto.
   87. PJ Martinez Posted: October 29, 2007 at 05:18 AM (#2598310)
another fan of sox populi here.

great work all season, Darren. I'm with #70.
   88. Answer Guy Posted: October 29, 2007 at 05:19 AM (#2598313)
It's easy to criticize from where I sit, but he's the one doing the job and he's getting it done. He deserves his share of credit for their success.

Indeed. For someone not used having to manage NL games, he was very adept about using the double switch, the proper pinch runners, and the proper pinch hitters at the right points in the game. He also proved adept at not leaving Schilling and Dice-K in the games too long.

My top complaint about his managerial style was his over-reliance on Okajima to the point where poor Oki would wear down.
   89. Darren Posted: October 29, 2007 at 05:21 AM (#2598321)
Sox Populi might make us forget where we came from though. Plus, what do we call the regulars there? Populians? Populists? No ring to it!

(thanks for the kind words too fellas)
   90. Infinite Joost (Voxter) Posted: October 29, 2007 at 05:21 AM (#2598324)
For the record, I posted the Tito question thinking that, if the Sox continue to win 90-100 games a year (maybe with the very occasional stumble), he's probably a HoFerm but also kind of a litmus test for the New Model Manager: To me, what he is, is a fabulous middle manager. He's able to take instructions from management and implement them on the fly. He's much better at that than, say, Eric Wedge.

Tito is no Sweet Lou, but then, Sweet Lou is no Tito, if you see what I mean.
   91. Darren Posted: October 29, 2007 at 05:22 AM (#2598325)
On the subject of selecting pinch-hitters, why did he go to Kielty over Youks there?
   92. Infinite Joost (Voxter) Posted: October 29, 2007 at 05:23 AM (#2598331)
Sox Populi might make us forget where we came from though. Plus, what do we call the regulars there? Populians? Populists? No ring to it!

There's some merit in both of these arguments.

Michael Chilis on Postgame - hilarious

Darren, wouldn't it just be "Gli populi"

Top 10 quotes from Red Sox Fans from the September 18 Sox Therapy thread:

10. "I don't see a really good reason why I should give a #### about the rest of the games this year if the management doesn't."

9. "Did [Okajima's] bad appearance against the Yankees move him down to mop-up duty?"

8. "I hate this Sox team, no killer instinct at all."

7. "Also, what the hell is up with Ramirez?. . . I'm suddenly glad that contract runs out next year."

6. "Francona's not a good manager.Let me add: if he has a good relationship with his bosses after the way he's handled this season, then it reflects badly on his bosses."

5. "Also, I'm willing ot accept not making the palyoffs at all if it gets Francona fired."

4. "Why can't I for once just have some sort of victory celebration without drama and endless F!@#ups?"

3. "To be honest it makes no damn bit of difference who makes the playoffs the way the yankees are playing. If they play this week for another month it's in the bag. My god I want to shoot myself."

2. "Another year, another late season collapse."


And the #1 quote is:

"O.k. whingers, bring it on!! So the lead is a might skinny. Yee of little faith, we will win this division by taking at least 6 or our next 9 games and then pummell all comers in the playoffs! We just took some time to get our bad play out of our systems...not its time to rock!"

Congratulations Red Sox fans... hope you enjoyed the rollercoaster ride. ;-)

On the subject of selecting pinch-hitters, why did he go to Kielty over Youks there?
Because if Youks was used and it was a 1-2-3 inning then he'd have to take Ortiz out when he's 1st up next inning.

Also want to express my thanks to Darren for ST, though unlike the season, his work on that front won't end with tonight's game.

And MCoA, I'd be happy to reimburse you if you could ship me a Globe. I collected front pages from New England newspapers after 2004, though one would suffice this time.

Ah, good answer Temple. Makes sense.

This is baseball. Don't argue with results.

[/sarcasm]

More realistically, it's gotta be the splits, right? Tito has shown that he finds those very convincing in the past (starting K earlier in the playoffs, for instance). Kielty murders lefties, and Youk is merely very good against them.

Also, I just discovered that if you search for "Youk" at BB-Ref, it takes you to just exactly the page you want.

I believe that was me :-), as only an Aussie would use whingers over whiners...
