Let’s get it started!
And now the real season begins. One of the advantages of working from home is that I can flip the TV on in my office when the Red Sox game comes on at 4pm. I need to make sure I get a lot done early today so that I can handle being a little distracted later.
Dan Shaughnessy lays out the plan for the next few weeks.
The John Henry/Larry Lucchino/Theo Epstein blueprint would have Boston beating the Angels in the first round, overthrowing the hated Yankees in the ALCS, then winning the World Series against the ancient Cardinals or Dodgers. Fall Classic Game 7 is slated for Sunday, Oct. 31, Halloween, in Fenway Park, with the parade through the Hub’s canyon of heroes on Tuesday, Nov. 2, which happens to be the same day a Massachusetts favorite son hopes to win the presidency.
Boy, wouldn’t that make for an exciting November 2nd?
