Do or Die

So, tonight. Game 5 of the ALCS. We're down 1-3. If we lose, we go home and the season is over. If we win, the boys return to Boston for more baseball.

I'm not ready for baseball to be over. April seems like a long time ago, and there have been so many ups and downs over the course of the 162 games. Some great moments, too.

But I'm talking like it's over. There's plenty of time for rehashing the season - hopefully, around the 1st of November during a parade.

Tonight: BECKETT!! Our ace takes the mound, with the season on the line. He's the guy to do it! However, he can't do it alone. He needs the offense to produce. First, the "table setters" have to do their job - Pedroia, Youkilis and the bottom 3 in the order need to come up big. Manny, Big Papi and Lowell can't do it all. We need to make Sabathia pitch - none of this swinging on the first pitch crap. They've got to be patient!
