Sox dismantled a scary good team

3 on the road
JFC
that was an impressive win

It was.

And the capper was beating Verlander. The pundits all had decided this game was Houston's before a pitch had been thrown.

I hadn't given up on the whole game, but I couldn't see how Price was going to suddenly be better than Game Two Price was.

He was. If he pitches like that for the World Series, it will shut up his critics largely forever, including this one. And the chances the Sox will win will rise considerably.

Cowboy Joe almost had as good of a series as the Sox did.

His call held-up to not only to MLB replay but the angles/pics that were not shown at the time.

So it looks like Joe West is the new Don Denkinger.

Unless it turns out later that he's the Tim Donaghy of MLB.

I laugh at your humor.

But I know full well that if they get those two runs it is very hard to predict how things would have gone from there.

You mean the doctored photos that suddenly appeared once MLB knew it had a real problem to deal with? Oh, yeah..."evidence".

Little known fact (unless one watched the game-which the troll didn't) the Astros took the lead twice after the correctly called interference call. And the Sox came back twice to win the game.

Sox beat a very good team 4 consecutive game, including 3 in their park, which I'm guessing is a fairly rare event for a defending World Champ who won over 100 games.

Sox for the most part played great baseball beating a great team.

That the troll attempts to suck the fun from the game and the enjoyment fans get from their team's accomplishment is what he tries to do, in every sports forum he contaminates, but in the end he always fails.

Instead he just sucks.
