This is also pretty funny. Dan Shaugnessy jinxed the Red Sox hard in the rain delay.

Sports are so hard to predict. You can analyze everything and your analysis be right on the money 9 out of 10 times. But when they play the game or series or season that 10th time might still show up and bite you in the backside. Still, predicting 116 or more wins and a WS title is a bit outlandish. I, for one, never would have imagined them not making the postseason.

Never say never. That is funny. I felt the same way though. 7-0 heading into the bottom of the 8th. I kinda liked the Yankees chances in that one.

Me too. And I hope Jacoby Ellsbury and Clay Buchholz are coming our way in return! :laugh:

Cincinnati has Axe Marty during the games.

Boston has Axe Terry after the season. :D
