Today is the day we’ve all been waiting for….the opening game of the ALCS, featuring the Boston Red Sox and the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field. I am excited. It will be Dice-K Matsuzaka vs. James Shields. I’m anticipating a great game. But my motto of the playoffs comes in here: “We’ll see.”
Last night the Phillies beat the Dodgers 3-2. It was a strange game, as in the Dodgers were leading but got erased and then lost. Manny had two hits. Chase Utley had a big 2-run homer followed by a homer by Pat Burrell. Otherwise, Greg Maddux pitched as a reliever. So, the series will continue tonight with Chad Billingsley against Brett Myers. GO RED SOX!!
