Ah wouldn't that be sweet if the Sox could put up similar numbers against Randy Johnson tomorrow? He's shown he can give up a lot of runs lately.

Wow, I remember that game! I remember Big Frank came within inches of hitting a third home run that night!

I was at that game. I think Graffanino hit a grand slam that night too.

Jaime Moyer took one for the team that night, the M's had a bullpen to go to the night after and take 3 of 4 in the series.

I remember the doubleheader the day before. First game, I had my hands on a foul ball by third base, but the Cub fan (grown man) behind me wacked me in the eye with his mit. Garland got the loss. Second game, they blew a lead late.

That was part of Seattle's hot second half that sent them on the course to sweeping us in October. So I'd call it a hollow 19-3 win at best.
