August 9, 2004- Sox started young Felix Diaz. He stunk the place up and got the Sox off to a 8-0 deficit. Backed by slumping Jose Valentin's 2 homers they fought to come back and trail 9-8 going to the 9th. Reliever Cliff Politte gave up 4 runs, the final one coming in on has-been Mike Jackson's balk. The Sox got 3 in the bottom of the 9th and had a couple on base with Valentin representing the winning run at the plate. He popped out. Game over.
The Sox would go on to win their next 14 games and recaptured 1st place, going on to eventually win their first World Series in nearly a century.

I think it's funny anyway.

*EDIT: You're a winner, Mike. A real winner.

I'm waiting for the fans to start chanting "M-V-P!" whenever he makes an appearance. The man sucks. He absolutely sucks.

That was a pretty marginal balk. Still, the man's Charlie Brown, get rid of him! :angry:

At least that year I enjoyed the game on my birthday. They didn't give me much of a gift when I was out there last night.
