What was "his job"?

Who pitches the eighth and who closes?

Yanks were far the better team in 2003.

Sox took the proper steps for '04.  Still lost the division but on paper we were so much better in 2004.

Sox should win this year, as Yanks did in 2003.

When at first I learned to speak, I used all my words to fight.  With him and her and  you and me.  Oh, but it's just a waste of time.  Yeah, it's such a waste of time.

kid

you suck at  supporting your positions.

Seriously, you're not very good at integrating facts and opinions.

Nor giving an honest count about your "predicting" prowess

But to give credit when credit is due, you're half-decent at changing the subject when you're hopelessly lost.

I knew you wouldnt answer

Yanks had Nick Johnsonleading off, then it was the heart of the lineup.

Give me the moves.

Most important - who closes?  Wakefield?

It wasnt a good bullpen that year.  Not sure why you remember it as such.

Just one matchup was for certain in that eighth.  Embree for Giambi.

I provided the information before you asked the question

Google "Timlin in the 8th and Willimson in the 9th"

It was a pretty popular phrase WBW, and I think it what was Theo yelled at Grady as he fired him.

or re-read my post a few posts upthread.

Little has Timlin intentionally walk Sierra with 2 out in the eighth.  Boone runs for Sierra - the rest is history

Timlin had 3 8th inning holds

Williamson had 3 9th inning saves

in that series.

Why Grady deviated from that successful duo by overworking an obviously spent Pedro remains a mystery to all but Grady and kid.

"Timlin in the 8th, Williamson in the 9th"

Kid glad I could explain the meaning of some Sox lore to you and ease your confusion.

I think a good guess sees Nick Johnson get on vs Timlin, then we are in the soup anyway with Jeter up, Giambi looming later that inning.

Kid thank your mom for your lunch. I left you the banana though.

So you can eat it.

Congrats - and watch out for that peel in the future.....
