Red Sox v. Indians, 7:05 pm. It seems the good Lord has smiled down upon the Red Sox by granting them 6 straight home games with which to wrap up the season and head (hopefully) into the playoffs. If such is the case, then I'll bet my laciest thong that He spent the better portion of last night yelling "NO NO COME ON DON'T SWING AT THAT WHY WOULD YOU SWING AT THAT" at His television. Come on, Sox! He's handing this to you!
Or maybe He's not, since the Sox will have to send Tim Wakefield (9-11, 4.18) out to face Cliff Lee (22-2, 2.41), MLB's winningest pitcher. Lee is making a bid to become the Majors' first 23-game winner since 2002 (yup, it was Barry Zito for the A's and Curt Schilling for the Diamondbacks. I just blew your mind, didn't I?), but hopefully the Sox bats will be able to get to him AND STOP STRANDING MEN ON BASE FOR GOD'S SAKE. (God approved this message.) The good news: Lee has a 4.91 career ERA against the Sox, including a 5.51 ERA in 3 starts at Fenway Park.
Frivolous prop bet of the night: Fuck, I haven't paid enough attention to the Indians since like May to know or care enough to make a decent joke here. How about this: I bet the Indians suck!
Serious prediction of the night: 2007 Cliff Lee (yes, the 5-8, 6.29 Cliff Lee we all know and love) makes a dramatic comeback; Sox take it, 5-3.
