End of summer. The Red Sox and first frost confirm it. If we had any more beloved fusty Frostian old New England poets around here, I'm sure they could make something out of this congruence. 2007 was truly a team effort and we owe thanks to A-Rod for reminding us of that.
I love Mike Lowell too, but I hope he gives one of the cars to Papelbon. And now... we can sleep for a week or so, but let's bask in this moment one or 2 more times.
Very excited about the future. Imagine the top of next year’s lineup: Jacoby, Pedroia, Papi (w/healthy knee) and Manny. And the pitching staff: Beckett, Dice 2.0, Lester, Buchholz. Back end of bullpen features Paplebon, Okie and Delcarmen. There could be very good things ahead. I hope Reader #1 can look back at the end of next year and say my optimism was justified on this, too.
Reader #1 is right, btw: Paplebon might’ve been a better choice for WS MVP.
