WS 4: Red Sox 4, Rockies 3

The Red Sox lineup remains the same:
Red Sox                Rockies
Jacoby Ellsbury, CF Kazuo Matsui, 2B
Dustin Pedroia, 2B Troy Tulowitzki, SS
David Ortiz, 1B Matt Holiday, LF
Manny Ramirez, LF Todd Helton, 1B
Mike Lowell, 3B Garrett Atkins, 3B
J.D. Drew, RF Ryan Spilborghs, CF
Jason Varitek, C Brad Hawpe, RF
Julio Lugo, SS Yorvit Torrealba, C
Jon Lester, P Aaron Cook, P
***

Jon Lester / Aaron Cook

If you are worried about Lester starting -- though at this point, why are you worried about anything -- consider that Colorado is pinning its post-season hopes on a guy who has not pitched in a game since August 10.

Well, it has been really special blogging with all of you tonight. What a performance! 2 blowouts and 2 one-run wins.

I want a chance to post again after this all sinks in. I'll look for the appropriate post tomorrow.

Enjoy your good feelings!

Amy said...

So whose the MVP? Pap?

phrenile said...

Tek needs another hug. C'mon Paps.

tim said...

LOVE THAT DIRTY WATER

Amy said...

Stoic Tek so emotional.

tim said...

LOOK AT ALL THAT PAGNE

L-girl said...

Tek is choked up. I'm glad to hear that. Let it go, boys. Enjoy it.

westcoastsox said...

Papelbon or Lowell should be MVP.

nixon33 said...

thank you
redsock for this blog!

SoSock said...

s1c - Thank you!
I just listened to the whole Snoopy song while watching the celebraqtion. Just sitting here, by myself,(Bob had to go after 8)smiling like a kid, enjoying it!

tim said...

"Shippin up to boston" cues up right as the papelbon interview stars!

phrenile said...

Paps is already drunk on adrenaline.

L-girl said...

Paps was crying too. I love it.

This time I'm not crying. I was in 04.

Amy said...

Allan, I want to thank you and everyone else for creating this space. I have said it before, but I will say it again. Watching these games with you all has made such a huge difference for this fan. I really will miss these game threads, but will continue to check in regularly for your posts.

tim said...

this bottle of champ tastes BETTER than it did after the ALCS...seriously.....it tastes sweeter! no metaphor or anything!

thatdietcokegirl said...

it was 'inevitable' but fuck...it's still a shock and a THRILL!! can't believe it. we're on top again. world champs ;)) and we're so the righteous winners. WE RULE ;D

westcoastsox said...

And just in time - laptop battery dying. Good night!

L-girl said...

They just showed LBJ running in from the OF. Can we even imagine how that guy must feel?? Damn. Fantasy beyond fantasy, I would think.

Ofer said...

Well, what can you say? It's been a great, great, great year.

And I want to say a big thank you to our virtual hosts, and for me, even physical hosts two weeks ago. You've built a special place here, really.

I hate the 'thank you so much', because it's usually undeserved and fake. But here, it fits very well: thank you so much.

redsock said...

1st of many titles with game threads!!!!!!!!

s1c said...

TO EVERYONE

A hell of a ride and it was made better by you guys. Gawd, I love this team, I love this pagne (rhymes with gagne) and SOX ARE THE CHAMPS.

mmm, swig, mmmmm!!!

L-girl said...

diet coke, yeah! i was wondering where you were. enjoy!

redsock said...

these did not exist here for 2004 --- we'll be rocking in 08 too.

Amy said...

I will look for a couple of Globes tomorrow--not sure how many I can snag, given that we don't live in Boston, but I will do what I can.

Colin said...

Here's to the best fucking team in the MLB all of 2007! Great effort Rockies. I tip my hat to you, but those white towels were your Achilles Heel. Hope to see you again next year.

redsock said...

time to max out the credit cards with shirts, caps, books, maagzines., etc. -- yet again

WOOOOOOOO
HOOOOOOOOOOOO

L-girl said...

I'm happy that everyone feels good about this community.

Here come the awards. First the boring ones with the suits, then the fun ones w/ the champs.

redsock said...

FUCK YOU YOU ASSWIPE SHITSTAIN CUNTDICKFUCKASS, BUD SELIG

SoSock said...

Lyndon - hauling ass!

Now we get to hear people who can't really talk try to talk

Amy said...

Good night, westcoast (even though it is only 9:16 there!). My laptop battery has about 30 minutes to go, but not sure my human battery does. But got to see Pap dance, if I can last.

L-girl said...

curse??? oh no you di'int!!!

redsock said...

john - pls hit jeannie with that trophy --she is a moran.

Amy said...

My daughter (the Boston one) just called to say she will be getting me a hat and t-shirt tomorrow and that she will take photos at the parade.

tim said...

tim said...

LOWELL MVP!!!!!!!!

SoSock said...

Doc - with the hardware!

L-girl said...

Let go of his hand Bud, it's getting creepy.

Amy said...

Does Lowell really need the gas guzzler? Somehow I bet he doesn't care much about that right now.

redsock said...

DOCTOR -- fucking A

s1c said...

Doc doesn't want to give up the Series trophy lmao!!!!!!

redsock said...

lowell "middle in"

Who the fuck is that Zelasko woman? Sheesh, she's a freha if I've ever seen one. I know you don't understand that word, but it describes her exactly.

Andy said...

redsock said...

SoSock said...

Kinda liking this Champions stuff - think I could get used to it :)

BTW - I don't want to add to the cascade of long good-byes, but,
Some of you who frequent wmtc know we've had issues around the Southern stronghold of the Sox. You guys, and my LL community, have been an incredible place to escape, to find a small bit of normalcy, and to smile a lot. I've loved every single moment of it.

Cue sappy music

Now PARTY, DAMMIT!

Amy said...

Lowell at the podium on NESN.

tim said...

just talked to my mom wasted - whoooo! i love how the discussion was like "whoo! sox! Lowell, sweet!......... so, how bout those patriots eh?....."

hahahaha RED SOX!!!!!!!!

redsock said...

sosock -- so glad to give you any measure of happiness.

cheers!!!!!!!!!!!!

tim said...

DO DO DO DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Lord Lynch said...

Enjoy. I'll appreciate this more in the morning.

tim said...

imma need that fucking DVD of this celibration!

tim said...

There it is again!

DO DO DO DOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

tim said...

Oh look, radio nowhere again

s1c said...

Remy - I thought it was disgusting and classless taking attention away from Lowell and his MVP (ripping Boras on the A-rod opt out).

Amy said...

SoSock, my heart is with you. So glad we shared this joy, and may it give you lots of strength in the time ahead.

SoSock said...

RS - great perspective on Kielty!
I didn't realize it was a 1st pitch dong. What an experience for him!

Amy - at least the humongous vehicles are hybrids :)

SoSock said...

Lowell on the podium on ESPN

Amy said...

Oh gee, battery about to go on the laptop. Feeling very joyous (and tired) and also that sort of sad realization that there are no more games! Just no pleasing some people.

Better say good night before the laptop crashes. Going to watch a little more and then dream of baseball!

Lord Lynch said...

Can't believe I slept this long.

It has been a long London ride, and it is great to see. Great to see Paps finish it in style.

Enjoy. I'm back to bed. It has been fun.

s1c said...

well good night guys, am going to turn off the laptop and will see you later!!!

OH YEAH World Series Champs!!!!!

Zenslinger said...

What a blast this year was. Ups & downs, but a solid team throughout. Who could ask for more?

My wife watched most of the game with me at The Bar. Anyone rooting against the Sox was just wanting the season to go on a little further.

Say what you want about or against FOX, and I have plenty to say in that regard, but the Springsteen / U2 "Walk On" montage was really nice.

MVP was a difficult choice, but it had to be made. Well done, Mike Lowell. "Opt-out" or no, I hope he's with us the next 2 or 3 years.

Thanks to RS and L-Girl for providing this forum for us. It's nice to have a home on the Web to come to.

World Series Champions! It's what we hoped for all year. What could be better?

SoSock said...

Well, my mind is sorry to see all this fun come to an end, but my body is going to be glad to get some more normal sleep time
We'll have to thread all of our damn celebrating tomorrow!
night,all ! :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

thatdietcokegirl said...

diet coke, yeah! i was wondering where you were. enjoy!


;D! i am. i'm....fuckin...STOKED!! (and i rarely say that;))

just basking in the aftermath of our 21st century dominance ;)

SoSock said...

Oh, 1 last thought.
Anyone noticed we haven't heard from our hosts in a while?
Just how ARE you guys celebrating?

Don't answer that :)

phrenile said...

From SoSH:

"ALCS MVP- Josh Beckett
WS MVP- Mike Lowell

Even if Hanley goes on to a HOF career, no one can hold that trade over our heads."

tim said...

AGAIN...thank you JOY...this season for me has been like ANY OHTER, thanks to the intrawebs! ive said it before and ill say it again (but not tonight!!!)

Hey, did Allan catch the Rockies fans with the sign that said "Its" instead of "It's"?

Pitchers and catchers, yeah! I've already got a makeshift '08 sked going!

Ma, I'm sure glad Babe Ruth let up on the curse for the second time! Maybe one day we'll actually lift that monkey off our backs, though. Hahahahahahahaha....

I had very good fortune with the audio.

In the coming days, I will compile it all and make a postseason package.

Allan, is there anyone who is getting you newspapers? I could get you a copy of the Boston Globe and Herald.

redsock said...

Night, moderation back on.

Sweet trophy dreams.

Jere said...

"jere -- reading your post to L and she's crying with laughter. we love the babe!"

Sweet. It was supposed to start with "Man," but I left out an N. But "Ma" works, too.

World Champs!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Again. And Tek made me so happy right after the win, saying the Sox fans are the "extra guy--AND WOMAN"! Yes, there are female baseball fans. That was so cool.

chief said...

Tired, exhausted, happy. I will catch up with the thread in the morning while I pretend to work.

Thanks everyone - it's been wonderful. G'night.

L-girl said...

And Tek made me so happy right after the win, saying the Sox fans are the "extra guy--AND WOMAN"!

I missed that, but I'm thrilled to hear it!

I have to say, the front office, Tito, NESN and most of the players are pretty careful to refer to the fans as men and women.

If anyone should know that, it's the Red Sox. Every-other day NESN trots out some 90-year-old woman who watches every game!
