    Does anyone really think that the lowly Boston Red Sox have a ghost of a chance against the mighty Detroit Tigers juggernaut? I think that when the Red Sox are down 3-0 they'll just forfeit the last game rather than suffer the humiliation of another crushing defeat.

    Sox don't swing at bad pitches. All your "aces" will have 100 pitch counts before they can see the fifth, then that about wraps it up. Plus your prime slugger has paralysis below the waist at the moment, I like our chances. Juggernaut? Never heard of it. Heard of Red Sox Nation, never Detroit Tiger Nation.....I say 6 games, then its lights out for the Tigers. That's lights out meaning series over, I wasnt talking about your street lights, theyre already out.

    That's OK. We'll let them have one. We'll just clinch on Thursday instead of Wednesday.

    Uh uh. You said sweep. 3-0 and we dont play the last game remember? I said Sox in 6. I'm still in the running. YOU, are up against the best team in MLB for extracting 115 pitches from a starter, then its time to send in the clowns for the coup de gras......and the streetlights are still out.

    Those are mere details. The only thing that really matters is that Detroit will win in the end. I will personally be in attendance tomorrow to make sure there is not another late inning mishap.

    It won't help. Big Popi is hitting. Detroit Pussycats will be neutered.

    Yup. A one hitter. Pitch # 100 to be exact. Losin 1-0 hurts like hell, dont it? Dont suppose you were the lucky fan to catch Napolis blast?

    It landed in the bullpen.

    If we can't beat a cretin like Lackey then things may not turn out quite as planned. Still plenty of baseball left. No worries. Fister shall triumph tomorrow in glorious fashion. I'm sure of it.

    In truth, either Fister gets it done, or Detroit gets fisted!!

    Just saying!!
