Come on Brayan , it's not the series just throw the ball. Even if we lose at least we can spend less time in misery.

This might be the most obnoxious broadcast of all time. Certainly in the running.

They just said on the ESPN broadcast that the Red Sox have had 26 batting champions (batting average). I'm trying to name them. Obviously there are guys who won multiple times. Not cheating here...

Ted Williams (5x)
Wade Boggs (8x)
Carl Yastrzemski (2x)
Mookie Betts (1x)
Bill Mueller (1x)
Nomar Garciaparra (1x)
Jimmie Foxx (2x)

That's 20 - and of course, I have NO idea if the number of times won for Ted and Boggs and Foxx (if he even won one) are right. This leaves 6 more. Totally guessing here now...

Mike Greenwell (1x)
Tris Speaker (4x)
Joe Cronin (1x)

Let me check now to see if this is right...

Agreed with runners in scoring position Casas has to want to hit not take pitches. The final one was right down the middle. Recognize this ump is giving strikes that are close to being strikes.
