Boston Red Sox Versus Tampa Bay Rays Game 7 ALCS Live Thread [2008 MLB Playoffs]

This One Is For All The Marbles

10/19/08 in MLB   |   Pat   |   5233 respect


After a thrilling series so far, the Red Sox and Rays will meet up in St. Petersburg at the Trop for the deciding game. Red Sox ace Jon Lester (16-6, 3.21) will take the mound against Matt Garza (11-9, 3.70) for the Rays.

The Red Sox won Game 1, but the Rays came back strong with 3 straight victories. The Red Sox followed that with one of the all-time greatest comebacks in postseason history, as they came back from down 7-0 to win Game 5. They won Game 6 behind Josh Beckett, and now look to win their 10th straight ALCS elimination game under Terry Francona.


55% think that the resilient Rays can bounce back and win this one to move on to the World Series. I disagree, and I'm predicting the Red Sox to win in a blowout, 11-2.

Chat it up here, or on the game page. Enjoy.

Worst one on here was Chris, but he stopped after post #4...

well, that wasn't whining or complaining about unfairness, it was the usual heckles and mouthing. LOL. I complained about the lack of offense, and of course i was worried and nervous... but who wasn't? That was a different feeling then back in game 5. Thanks for the acknowledgment though, i just hope i didn't go too far in my little rants here and there. I've been really trying to keep my blood below boiling temperature. LOL!

By no means am I to be confused as a Sox fan myself, but I think you're taking this a bit too far. There's heckling, which was what you were doing in your first 2-3 posts, but now its in the general area of straight up unsportsmanship and stupidity.

That and the fact your posts always seems to be jumbled sentences put together with a little bit of ".............." to space it through. This just simply implies you aren't intelligent enough to attempt trash talking if you are not intelligent enough to even put a sentence or two together.

Game 7 is over with, on to the World Series; and as you so nicely pointed out, the BoSox are not a part of. Ya done?

could happen, unless they pull a Rockies like last year. All that time off plastered on a ton of rust on their bats and never really got it going in the whole series. Of course, the Phillies this year are a much much better squad than the 07 Rockies, so i don't expect them to crumble easily. This will be a long series.

We wouldn't have made the playoffs if Manny were still here.  We wouldn't have gotten the Manny that's been tearing up NL pitching.  We would have gotten "Operation Shutdown" "Boston hates me" "My knees hurt" "Oh and about those two club options on my contract....." Manny.

If the Red Sox had gone to the World Series, I would have been home just in time for a Game 7, if it went that far. However, there's not a chance in hell that I could have gone, because I don't have $2000 to drop on the cheap seats.

$2000 might get you Standing Room.  In 2007 I saw pairs of $12 face bleachers going for $3200.  This goes back to my statement about how the real Sox fans are watching the games on TV at places like the Beerworks and Cask & Flagon and the well-to-do celebrities that saw "Fever Pitch" one time get the tickets to the game.

Fever Pitch sucks by the way, but that's another story for another thread.

Well played, Tampa Rays.  Congratulations and good luck in your first World Series.

Hopefully your fans will behave differently than Florida Marlins fans in the coming years.

I'll be visiting your fine city in April or May of 2009 and if I attend any games with less than 25,000 fans in attendance, I am holding MarktheShark personally responsible.

If you are anything like Papelbon...let's hang out...after I saw that clip of him on YouTube with the Mohegan Sun sports guys...I actually think he's kinda cool...in a jerky but funny kind of way, you know, like Pat....He was pretty hilarious drinking and subsequently spitting out that champagne.....and no there won't be less than 25,000 for THOSE games....come to a Rangers game in the middle of the week.......oh yeah there'll be less...

Actually, shouldn't be any other way. The Rays are now firmly entrenched in the psyche of both the Red Sox and the Yankees. Cashman and Epstein now have to account for the Rays and build to beat THE RAYS, not each other. I'm not counting out the Blue Jays either...This is going to be one incredible division for years to come......if the Yankees can catch up that is..

Why do the pick-ems still favor Tampa? FanIQ must have a lot of:
  • Mis-clickers, clicked on the wrong team.
  • People who haven't been paying attention to this series.
  • Too many Red Sox haters, and
  • Too many people thinking the Rays will somehow cut off this momentum.
How can a brickwall stop a wrecking ball swinging at it at 50 MPH? Correct answer. IT CAN'T.

Boston wins tonight.

Man, you talked a LOOOOT of crap this series: Face it the Rays overcame the greatest odds in the history of professional sports in North America from March 31 until right now. They were the longest of long shots EVER. The Red Sox have every advantage, from money spent to money earned. From supposed "experience" to mainsteam media backing(ESPN).
It's yuppie fans of the Red Sox that give their hardcore base such a bad name. My sister has never stepped foot in the state of Massachusetts and she sits at home and roots  from some sorry ass team that she's been to two spring training games of rather than go to the Buccaneers game, a team she has loved her WHOLE life.
SUCK IT CHRIS
SUCK IT BOSTON FANS            
Out of all the Boston fans outside the Trop tonight the guys who had any dignity were a coupla Providence RI firemen the rest just shrank into the night and cowered when they heard the Shaq rap "hey Red Sox, tell us how our ass taste?" Some fans.....

(Edited by Ryan)

In all fairness, I can understand the slide to take out the SS.  With Ortiz running at first, you have to do your job to give the next batter an at-bat.

He should have realized he was closer to the bag than normal, though.  You've got to take a quick peek back to see where the ball is played to know whether you need to take out the SS or not.

Gotta give the next batter a chance, though - and that happens by doing whatever you can to get a slow-running Ortiz to first.

10/19/08   |   MrNFL   |   175 respect

If Crisp didn't suck at sliding, he's safe.  He went to take out Bartlett and not get to the base. 

10/19/08   |   MrNFL   |   175 respect

Boy, that was risky.  I would've taken the out at first, they BARELY got him.

Along with the Aybar cushion - hopefully it can buy Garza atleast a start in the next inning.

Good to see that Lester is pitching well. The Sox are going to blow this one open any minute now.

Speaking of delusional...

Garza has given up a total of one hit, that being Dustin's solo HR in the 1st, how can you possibly determine there's an offensive explosion in the works for the BoSox?

 Funny you should use the word delusional then say that the Sox are about to blow the game wide open.

I'd be surprised if there were a total of 6 runs scored in this game.

Why do the pick-ems still favor Tampa? FanIQ must have a lot of:

  • Mis-clickers, clicked on the wrong team.
  • People who haven't been paying attention to this series.
  • Too many Red Sox haters, and
  • Too many people thinking the Rays will somehow cut off this momentum.
How can a brickwall stop a wrecking ball swinging at it at 50 MPH? Correct answer. IT CAN'T.

Boston wins tonight.
