Lat nights win makes it 10 in a row for the Sox. The only question is how long will it last. I don't know about anyone else but the reception that Pedro got last night between innings after the video clip was shown was great to see. I wonder how much the year of seperation had to do with it, especially when comparing that reception to Damon's. Granted he went to the National League, not the SpankMees, but he didn't have a lot of good things to say about the organization when he left. Although if I remember right he went of his way to exclude the fans, even then.
It seems the '86ers are finally get their due, there are 2 articles in the Globe, one from yesterday the other from today:
Review of '86 ceremony
Shaunessy's take on '86 Team
The second linik is to an article by Shaunessy, who normally annoys the hell out of me with his perpetual negative vibe, but is well done. The only thing missing was Buckner, it would have been great if he could have made it to yesterdays pre-game. He off all that the members of that team deserves the standing O. With out his bat in the line up all year that team is a .500 team instead of a should be championship winner. It was good to see Boggs and Hurst in the broadcast booth last night with Remy. I'd forgotten that Remy had started the year and retired early on when Barrett won the starting job. The ripples of 2004 continue to mmove across the pond of the Nation. Could Sox fans be so positive about the '86ers with no Championship?
