If I beat anyone to punch on chatting about the What if... 2003 ALCS deal on NESN... all I can say is Waaah.
I won't be long, but I watched the end of it and have some thoughts. The ending seems plausable. 80% of the time they ran the simulating from the 8th inning on, the Sox won. What was funny, was that the anal-ysis geek said they ran "only" 20 runs where Pedro was left in. I think they said that the Sox won 75% of those? hmmmmm Oh the sample is much smaller... I think the whole thing is weak, but fun and I took it for what it was. They also said that Aaron "freaking" Boone never enter the game in any scenario they ran! hahahaha
A couple of random thoughts....Big Papi was "Medium" Papi is 2003; forgot that. Manny and Damon didn't look like rock stars....I miss Mueller...I forgot how close they really were!!!! Ugh. I think they have better team this year.
