OK, show of hands
Hands up if you muttered an F bomb when Torii Hunter tied the game with 2 outs in the 10th.
Hands up if when Ortiz struck out in the 8th you thought "Crap. We're not going to win this, are we?"
Hands up if you thought there was no way in Heaven or in Hell that the Red Sox were going to prevent Willits from scoring in the 8th.
Hands up if when Teixiera caught Kotsay's line drive you thought "Damn, we're not going to score are we?"
Hands up if in that little span between Kotsay's at bat you thought "We should have started Wakefield or Byrd and save Lester for a do or die game 5."
I expect to see a lot of raised hands!
Let's all exhale.
That was a truly great series...
clutch hitting... odd plays on the basepaths... 1 extra inning game and 2 more decided in the 9th inning.
I've had my excitement for October.
I'd love for Lucifer to come back and put the Devil back in Devil Rays.
But for now, you can put your hands down.
