Sox Topple Rays In Late Innings

You have to admire the Sox's ability to wait until the point of no return and then make their return. Last night's game was a perfect example of that. Down 7 runs, the Red Sox made one of those epic comebacks they've been known for over the last few years. I still give it to the Rays, but they will have to win tomorrow, because game 7 would have too much momentum in favor of the Red Sox. Hopefully, Maddon has calmed his players down and is preparing them well for this up coming game.

Meanwhile, do the Mets still feel the sting of trading Scott Kazmir for Victor Zambrano? I assume they do. Speaking of Kazmir, should Maddon have let him stay to pitch the 7th? He was at 111 pitches, but was throwing a 2-hit shutout through that point. Usually Balfour is pretty good, so I know why they went with him, but would the game have been different if they had let Kazmir start the 7th? I don't know...

I'm waiting for the movie about the Rays to come out. As I mentioned in the comments section, I expect Kazmir to be played by Samuel L. Jackson, and Maddon to be played by Robert Deniro. Last night's game would feature a dramatic argument between Deniro and Jackson when Deniro tries to pull Jackson for Balfour played by Russell Crowe. Jet Li would play Iwamura who has to break them up as the argument escalates. Jackson ends the scene by saying "I want these motherbleeping innings pitched by motherbleeping Scott Kazmir." Referring to himself in the third person. Robert Deniro yells "You're just one man Scott! The Red Sox are a Nation!" The twist in the movie comes when a paternity test reveals that Maddon is Kazmir's father, and the movie ends with them playing catch together at the Trop, after defeating the Phillies for their first World Series championship. If you're a movie producer reading this, I will write you the script.

In what is sure to be a ture drama, the one bit of comic relief will be Eva Longoria and Tony Parker playing Evan Longoria and Carl Crawford.
