the umpires made the right call but the call is strange to begin with... it's sort of like major league baseball's version of the tuck rule. it actually doesn't say anywhere in the rule book that he can't slap the ball away... it says in the umpire's addendum, a section added to the rule book to "clarify" certain rules, that you can't slap it away whatever... they made the right call. it's confusing because if a-rod would have just barrelled arroyo over, dropping the shoulder right into his glove in an effort to dislodge the ball, there would be no interference because a-rod has the right to the basepath. but when he makes that slapping motion, it's illegal. confusing yes, right call, also yes.

Just a bit of info from Game 5, David Ortiz' attempted steal in the 12th inning was a hit and run, but Doug Mientkiewicz missed the sign.

still too big a risk IMO, but what's done is done

dave wallace is on the FAN right now... as expected, all hands on deck for tonight, including pedro.

May The Best Team Win

Seriously...I know that as the #1 Yankees fan in Interland, I should be wishing for the total annihilation of the Sox tonight. But any team that can come back from a 3-0 deficit deserves my respect and admiration. Plus...for all of your angst and overwrought emotion all of these years...maybe it's time for the Sox fans to finally taste the champagne.

I am willing to cede the #1 Yankees fan title to Headache at this time. May the best team win.

And I admit this, too...if the Sox pull this off, I hope it is a good sign for another citizen of Massachusetts to also win 13 days from now...

now here's a stupid yet interesting question... would you consider the curse reversed if they beat the yankees tonight, or only if they go on to win the world series? lots of guys with B's in their name on the astros

If the Red Sox beat the Yanks and lose the WS, the "curse" is not "reversed." It would however, be quite satisfying for the RS to be the team that sends the Yankees into the history books as the team with the worst collapse in the playoffs EVER!

That pretty much sums it up for me as well, except that I don't believe in the Curse of the Bambino.

If John Kerry wants to win the election, he should promise to have Matsui deported on Nov. 3rd. That could swing the Sox fan vote.
