1-0 Us

In the first, Beckett gave up a solo homer. Considering he always has a bad first, I knew we were in good shape, provided we could score of of Sabathia.

And going in, I was thinking about how C.C. is less fearsome then Carmona, as C.C. didn't look all that great against the Yanks. When every hitter in the first inning hit the ball back up the middle against him, though, I knew we were gold. And we were very gold.

Great job by Beckett--who we were able to take out early with such a big lead, and great job by our big boys. The 2-3-4 hitters were 6 for 8 with 6 walks and 7 runs scored.

Schilling, with his under 2 ERA in 16 post-season starts, goes tomorrow.

I had fun broadcasting the game, and will definitely do it next season, and I'll let you know if I'll be doing it again this post-season.

Loved the Stephen King interview. Made fun of Fox, and said he was relaxed knowing the Yanks were golfing. Awesome. He is the ultimate Red Sox fan.

Could Beckett have been more in control? Could Tito have made a better decision taking him out after 6 strong? Can Manny and Papi be any hotter? Could the Red Sox be playing ANY better? No, no, no and no. And that all led up to a BIG YES last night. I am so happy. And I know you are too, Jere!!!!! Party at my place if and when.....the rest of that thought, I will leave unsaid!
Excellent broadcast !!! Was a lot of fun listening to the two of you. The biggest problem was that your call was about 5 seconds ahead of my TV. Must be because I have Dish Network. The chat kept hanging, but a refresh seemed to get it going again. Your Castig and Troup was hilarious.
And you were right about Pronk.
Thanks for the entertainment.
Glad you enjoyed it! I think another good thing about doing a "TV" call is that I can wait on calls as opposed to describing it the second it happens like on radio, therefore allowing for the inevitable delay. We did test it with two computers, and it's no more than a half-second delay from me talking to it coming out, but, of course, there's the TV/satellite/ delay.
