Death Rays? Dead Sox?

Don't bet on it. Four times a team has been down 3-1 in a seven game post-season series and come back to win. Three times, that team was the Red Sox.

10/17 Update: Didn't I tell you? Down 7-0 in the middle of the 7th, the Sox come back to get four runs in the bottom of that inning (three of them thanks to Papi's bat), tie it in the 8th, and win in the 9th. I couldn't see them getting swept at Fenway. So, we go back to Florida, where the Rays will, I hope, prevail.


  1. The Sox really blew the last two games. If they pull the next 3 out I'll eat my hat.

  2. of course, having manny for 2 of those 3 time sure as hell helped. as did having a healthy beckett.

    still, i've seen them pull off amazing comebacks. i'll be watching tonight. hoping my team wins. and if not? it'll suck, but damn, the rays are good this year.

  3. clarification: manny 2 of 3. beckett only last year. just realized it could have been read the wrong way.

  4. that was fucking awesome.
