Strong disagree with ALDS Game 5. I'm sure you didn't want to go back-to-back on 1999, but come on. I will not let Troy O'Leary be disrespected a third time. Pedro coming in to pitch 6 no-hit innings of relief, against the Indians' offensive juggernaut? To cap off having been down 0-2 in a best-of-five? That was one of the best *games* I ever saw.

I was at the Game 4, sitting against the back wall of the bleachers under/behind the scoreboard, and thus higher than the top of the monster. It messed with my perspective on every HR to left, as I kept thinking it had to be a double - and then it didn't bounce back! Oh, what a glorious game.

Yeah, I wanted to mix that up a bit. I think enough has been written about Pedro in 1999 that I figured I'd just roll with 2003.

ALDS Game 1 - 1998
I believe this mercifully ended a 13-game franchise postseason losing streak.

The other thing about the Game 4 was the WEEI callers incessantly ripping the team ahead of the game for having a no-name has-been starting an elimination game. "There's no way we're winning a game with Kent Mercker starting."

Then a few years later: "There's no way we're winning a game with John Burkett starting."
