How psyched is the Nation right now??!!
I know I said I didn't want to see the Sox play the Angels. I meant it. I didn't think we couldn't win - I just thought it would be a series that would run down to the wire. We all know that there's a possibility that it might....but it sure feels good knowing that game three is at Fenway with Beckett on the mound.
Now, at risk of sounding cynical -- last night has a couple of questions for me to pose:
1. Am I the only one who gets frustrated beyond imagination watching DiceK pitch? It just seems like he wastes so many pitches. Just asking...
2. Okay. So, after last night's unbelievable 2 run HR I'm feeling as if I need to eat my words about how JD Drew is a diva, and doesn't seem willing to put in an effort to help the team when he's not horribly injured, yada yada yada. Now he's a hero, right? Well...call me crazy but in some ways seeing him hit that and bring something great to the table almost irritates me more. There are some really injured guys on this team who bring it every game - and who really don't like being forced to sit out (ala Mike Lowell, for an example). Imagine just how much Drew could've contributed to the team's success over the past few months.
Drew's efforts last night sort of made me see that I can draw a parallel between him and other "really great ball players who often opted not to work through their injuries, and who shall remain nameless" -- and I am wondering if anyone else feels the same way?
