Sox Vs. A's- Game 5

Tue Oct 07, 2003 7:00 am

Who do you think will win tonight?

I think with Pedro on full rest he can easily out pitch Zito on 3-days rest. Pedro does his best in pressure situations like this. The Sox offense is starting to come out of the slump we saw in games 1-3 of the series(most importantly Ortiz and Ramirez). The Sox definitely have the momentum and advantage tonight.

Live in Texas but rooting for the Bosox. Would love to see a Boston/Chicago World Series. Plus, a Boston/New York ALCS would be "can't miss" TV. Those teams just don't get along, ya know.

Sox definitely have the momentum, and you can't go wrong with Pedro on the hill. And yes, a Yanks-Sox ALCS would be cool.

That was a nasty head-banger, no doubt. I think Damon is OK, but I think they just took every precaution. I'm surprised Damien Jackson came to bat the next inning.

And didn't remember who hit the fly ball, but no way should he have tried to take second on that play. And yes, you'll always find asshole fans. They're as common as flies near a no-pest strip.

Well, that's EIGHT STRAIGHT that the A's have lost when having a chance to close out a playoff series. Nice choke job, once again A's. In fact, the choking is all over the Bay Area this playoff season! Well done!!

It's mental with the A's now. They think the're going to blow a series now, and it's so ingrained in them, that they may never get over it.

Go Sox and Cubs!!!  Big thumbs up

The collision was pretty scary. I had a very bad feeling in my gut watching Damon lying on the field like that. Glad to hear that it wasn't terribly serious. Hopefully he'll be playing against the Yankees.

Just got back from the Coliseum... what a game... you gotta give props to Pedro and Derek Lowe. Manny's bat finally woke up.

I was pulling for the Sox, and can't wait for them to go up against the Yankees. Hopefully the Yanks will get smoked.
It's a new day. Every moment matters. Now, more than ever.
