In response to TheExaminer's comment:
Stephen Id like to see it, but I dont think it will happen. I see more In the 95-98 range. But this NY series is not all wine and roses. Your pen was putrid, but ours has been horrid, especially Thornton and Tazawa to a certain degree. Lackey was soft today, but that could be because of the big lead. But what ticks me off more than anything is Ellsbury. I am sick, sick, sick of this team having good chances ruind by injury. Now clearly hes not as bad as Pedroia was when he smashed his navicular becasue Ellsbury played at a high level after injuring it, and Pedroia could barely walk to first base that night. So hopefully its not as bad, but its still annoying. Even if they win it all it takes some of the fun out of it when you dont get to see key players play out the string. The Red Sox have bones brittle like plaster of paris.
If ellsbury not playing today is ruining your season the I am at a loss for words. This postis geo/adg worthy. Way to go. The sox are in first place and rocking so far in September. If your upset because ells is hurt, get over it.
Just how many Buds do you have under your belt in celebration of today's win? At what point did I say it was "ruining the [whole] season"? What I said was:
1. Im sick of seeing key injuries to players that I like
2. By extension, despite enjoying the wins, they would be more enjoyable if all the players I like (and that got us here) were participating in the victory.
3. Therefore, it stands to reason that I not only want to beat the opposition, I want to leave them speechless and destroy them with a team hitting on all cylinders at peak moments when the seasoon is on the line.
4. Dont expect to score from 12-20 every night in the postseason, meaning microscopic advantages like Ellsbury's speed may make the difference between winning and losing. We need him.
Now then, what part of this statement implies the season is "ruined"?
