What a game!  The good news for the Dodgers is that they wonít have to go back to Fenway Park after tomorrow where itís cold and people say mean things.

I Take full credit for amazing performance of bullpen based on my reverse-psychology post on Ms thread.

In my family we all eventually became Mets fans after the Brooklyn Dodgers betrayed us before my birth.  I got my start with the Amazing Mets of 1969.  That said, I could never support an American League team, especially one from Boston, so go Dodgers.

Those of us who were BROOKLYN Dodger fans in 40s/50s learned to hate Yankees because Dodgers lost 5 of 6 world series to them.  So when Dodgers moved to LA and we disowned them, Red Sox were, after several years of mourning, a logical substitute for some of us.

Thank you for that.  LOL.  Personally I think that Alex Cora is a psychological mastermind and a sheer genius.  He got the best out of everyone in that lineup and bullpen, top to bottom.  Any other manger might not have pulled off what he was able to.  It's my understanding that when Francona left the team he was fed up with meddling from the front office.  I really hope management gives him the latitude he needs to keep this up.  If so, we could be talking about a dynasty.

Ain't it great to be a Sox fan in 2018?  Amazing to think that 20-something-year-old Sox fans have no idea what the rest of us have gone through.  I watched the attached video the other day and I couldn't help shedding tears of joy.

After scoring tickets to the Mariners home opener against the World Champion Boston Red Sox, I went over the the Red Sox webpage to scope out tickets for my summer trip back east and I was surprised on two accounts:

1)  The Red Sox are on the road for the first two weeks of the season.  While the M's first home game at Safeco Field/T Mobile Field is on 3/28, the Sox don't play at Fenway until 4/9.  Does anyone else think that's weird given the fact that the Sox haven't played at Fenway since game 2 of the World Series?  I doubt the NFL would do this to the champs.

2)  Red Sox tickets aren't on sale yet.  I would think that all MLB teams would start their ticket drive on the same date.

I prefer MLB to the NFL lately but these factors seem odd to me.
