Further proof that the man is not human. What an incredible end to today's game against the Phillies. With the Sox down by one run in the bottom of the 12th, they staged a mini-rally. Coco doubled, then scored on Youk's single. Youk made it to 2nd on the throw home, then Sweet Mark walked. Up to the plate comes Big Papi, who promptly singles in the go-ahead run. Sweet.

I know that we can't expect him to bail us out every time. But there's an incredible feeling when he comes up to bat with the game on the line. You wouldn't want anyone else up there (well, maybe Manny who bats next). As someone on SoSH said today, I can't wait to be sitting in the "home" in 50 years, boring my great-greats with stories of seeing Ortiz in his prime. We're truly witnessing history....
