I turned to my daughter and said, "I'm so glad you're sitting here with me to enjoy this walk-off victory, which will occur on the next pitch".

But, really, if I get any points for that, it's only for calling the pitch, because it was completely obvious to anyone watching how this game was going to end as soon as Bogaerts reached.

Some day we'll be telling our grandkids about @davidortiz and they'll think we're exaggerating. But we won't be.

IIRC the "greatest clutch hitter" discussions started around the 7/31/06 one.

AHA! Here's the discussion from that time.

And of course, let's not forget the Boston Strong speech from 2013, and his dugout speech in the 2013 WS, both of which sparked the team to success without the use of a bat.
