How do you kill zombies again?
Seriously, Lugo looks dead in this photo! We gave up a bunt single to a corpse!
(No, I did not alter this photo in any way!)
If you are looking for me to make excuses for Thursday’s loss you will be disappointed. Josh Beckett beat the Indians. That’s it. Should Sabathia have pitched in the seventh? No. Did that cost us the game? No. The Indians will travel to Boston and have a 1 in 2 chance to go to the World Series. And honestly, I like our chances. Fausto Carmona vs Bloody Sock, then Jake Westbrook/Paul Byrd vs Dice K/Tim Wakefield. I think we end it in game 6. I really do.
Fausto will get ahead of hitters with the fastball, then make them swing at the sinker. The same recipe he used all season. Jake Westbrook should be his guide, and the Tribe wins at Fenway. That’s my prediction. Remember the pressure is still on the Red Sox. They are facing elimination, not the Tribe.
