watching the player intro's, I have concluded that the Boston PA announcer sucks. Give me the White Sox PA announcer any day of the week.

Ouch. Back to back errors for Ramirez. He must have a gold glove, he can't catch anything with it!

That called 3rd strike on Edmonds was an awful call. You can't miss a call that badly.

Dang Foulke. He got stinking lucky with that strike three call with the bases loaded. That was the biggest pitch of the game. The ump pissed that game away.

All the announcers and analysts are making a big deal of how in the world the Red Sox could win a game with four errors and so many walks. Well, that called strike may be the reason.

Oh please. You Cards supporters are sounding like a bunch of :whiner: whiners :whiner:
That Foulke pitch was borderline. I'll admit it was slightly outside but you also have to admit that the ump blew the call at the plate where Varitek clearly had the plate blocked and tagged the guy out.

The Cards aren't impressing me much so far. By all means, they should have won this game handily the way the Red Sox kicked the ball around. 4 errors, Wakefield and Arroyo pitched terribly, and Manny looked like he has never played LF in his life and Boston still came out on top. The Red Sox have Schilling and Pedro on tap for the next two games. Unless Pujols, Rolen, and co. start really swinging those sticks, this could be a short series and we'll be minus one "curse" in major league baseball.

However, the fact you thought a pitch a foot and an half inside was "slightly outside" makes me think you need to lay off the http://www.flyingsock.com/vbulletin/images/smilies/gulp.gif and :smokin:. http://www.flyingsock.com/vbulletin/images/smilies/biggrin.gif

Yeah, those 9 runs they scored were the reason they lost the game. The fact that The Card's starting pitching and bullpen laid an egg had nothing to do with it. *****.

Whats the big deal with this "curse" ordeal. big FREAKING whoop. it's there fault they believe in it. "One more curse we have to worry about"...who's "WE"...you mean "YOU" as a red sox fan. Personally i like the "curse". It's funny that all the red sox believe it acually exists. I hope the cardinals dominate the red sox. Im not worried at all that they are down 0-1. They can certainly come back. I was discussing this with my dad..Wouldn't it be AWSOME..i mean like the funniest thing in the world if the red sox blew a 3-0 lead to the cardinals? :rolling:

I see nothing wrong with my statement that Pujols, Rolen, and Edmunds will have to carry the torch for the Cards. I think the Cards pitching is inferior all the way around to Boston's so in order for them to win this series, they are going to need a lot of offense. Those big sticks they have in the lineup are going to have to carry them. They are going to have to outslug the Red Sox in this series which they weren't able to do last night.

Oh man - weird game - this is the World Series already - supposedly the two best teams in the whole of baseball - how many errors and walks?

That said, the conditions were hardly perfect, and the highest number of runs scored ever - exciting!

Whaddya reckon for tonight's Game 2?

I'm guessing at a tight 'pitching duel'-type game, with a narrow win for the Cards (my prediction is 3-2 Cards).

Unfortunately, because of the time difference, I have to tape it and watch it after work tomorrow.

I just hope it's as exciting as Game 1!
