The scary thing is the weather last night was pitchers' weather, in the 40's and dropping, and the wind was blowing in from left and across, which should knock fly balls down, and they still put 20 total runs on the board. Of course you had a journetman 3rd starte in Williams going against a never know what you're gonna get knuckleballer in Wakefiled, so that explains some of it, combined with 5 errors.
Tonight won't be as ridiculous, probably along the lines of Sox 8, Cards 4.

Just sayin' that that's how the Sox are built (although Theo Epstein realized that he needed to shore up the Sox defense and thus traded Nomar for Cabrera and Mientkiewicz).

Especially amusing is the fact that both closers in the Series are former A's (one of the precepts of Moneyball, you will recall, is that closers are easily replaceable).

Over? Did you say over? Nothing is over 'til we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?

Tonight is critical for the Cards. More or less a must-win.

Well, no, it's not REALLY must-win.

But I mean, Boston wins and they're up 2-0. I have no doubt that St. Louis will win at LEAST one back home, but that still leaves them down against an equally good team.

Plus, if the Cards win tonight it's 1-1 and Boston has no more home field advantage.

If Boston wins, they guarantee a trip back to Boston if they don't win it all in St. Louis. Huge game tonight, as every single series game always is. What makes it a "must" is the fact that ever single win greatly increases the chance of winning it all.

It's just basic math when it comes down to it -- every series game is the most important...up until that time.

Uh, don't ask me to prove this or anything

I have no doubt St Louis will win at LEAST Game 3 and probably 4 and/or 5 as well. I think Boston will likely win one in St. Louis, and it'll come back to Boston more than likely a 3-2 Boston lead.

Home field advantage is EXTREMELY important though, especially the way the AL/NL rule system works.

By the way, anyone else think this rule switching is really tilted towards NL teams?

There are rumors that this may be Schilling's last start because the doctors are worried about screwing up his ankle by having to keep opening it up to fix the tendon.
