ALDS Game 3 (I fell asleep with a broom)

Game 3 was quite intense huh? Beckett was obviously off… so we had five innings of hell (or somewhere around five). Mike Napoli… two home runs? What the hell? That was pretty annoying. Lucky for us, our trusty rookie Jacoby was involved in all four runs. Pretty amazing. And by the way, they were not cheap RBI’s, it’s not my fault if Torii Hunter sucks. That one play had three RBI’s and then in the eighth (I really don’t remember this game too well, way too tired anyway) he hit a double right over the right fielder’s head (whoever it is) and then Kevin Youkilis hit another double to score Jacoby. Unfortunately, Jed Lowrie couldn’t produce with the bases loaded and Jacoby struck out even though the ball was CLEARLY AS **** outside. That could’ve cost us the game right there. But then again, that’s the beauty of baseball. Can’t rely on one man to always score the runs for you. Masterson pitched beautifully yet AGAIN. I’m enjoying that I can rely on him in the post season. Him and Papelbon :D. Ironically, the probable MVP is 0-13 (or something ungodly like that) in the ALDS. He is due! We’ll see about that tonight. David Ortiz is also due for some type of home run. Crazy as I am, I was holding on to a broom from the seventh inning on. So I ended up falling asleep with it, holding it very tightly. Kind of disappointing. 

Other than that the NLCS has been locked up. The Philles beat the Brewers and the Dodgers swept the Cubs. Someone bring out a goat, please. Hopefully the suicide rate in Chicago won’t increase. I’m not even sure of who is winning the White Sox-Rays series… I think it’s the Rays. That’d be an epic matchup, the Rays and the Red Sox. Such a rivalry has erupted this year, it’d be great to see another fight. Plus, I’m going to Tampa if it’s the Red Sox and the Rays. That’d be wicked. It’s annoying to see the Dodgers in the NLCS. I’m very annoyed at Manny Ramirez right now, mostly because I miss him, even though I really don’t want to. He was one of my favorite players and he was a total *** about leaving. But I’m kind of in love with Jason Bay (well, not as much as Jacoby Ellsbury) and I want to babysit his new daughter. We’ll see how it all goes down tomorrow. I want to go into school happy (and well rested tomorrow). It’s Lester vs Lackey tonight. Should be great (:

ALDS Game 2 and part of 3

I didn’t get to see Game 2, but it must have been great. I saw it get to 5-5, it must have been crazy. Dice-K did decently as always… always putting two on and then miraculously getting out of it. Masterson did well, pretty cool how he’s a ROOKIE in the post season… hasn’t even been up the entire year. He’s kind of like the new set up man if you think about it. Papelbon pitched GREAT. And then in the top of the ninth with Youkilis on, JD Drew SLAMS ONE and the score is 7-5 and Papelbon closes it out! Hopefully he’ll have a pretty good break now since he (and Masterson) have pitched in the first two games.

I’m in the process of watching game 3 now, and Jacoby has been involved in all 4 runs. First getting 3 RBIs on this crazy bloop single that Torii Hunter surprisingly did not catch. It was a ***********. Then, in the fifth, Jacoby hits a double off the wall and Youk hits another double that scores Jacoby. And Mike Napoli? What the hell? He doesn’t do ANYTHING!!! Beckett hasn’t looked that great. 4-4 bottom six. Gotta love it. I live for this.
