I never doubted they wouldn’t make it. A quote from a post I made in a domain forum on October 17, when the Red Sox were losing the series 3-1 and a friend conceded the ALCS to the Indians:
“You gave up????? I will remember this when Beckett delivers tomorrow, Schilling shows up on Saturday and D-Mat and The Kid John Lester shut them down on Sunday. My only concern is that my parents are throwing Karen and me an engagement party on Sunday and I have a game to watch!!!
LETS GO RED SOX!!!”
