Big Papi Sends 'Em Home Smiling

Mr. Walk Off, Big Papi David Ortiz, scorched a three run double to give the Boston Red Sox a 6-5 victory Saturday at Fenway Park. What a way to end a game. Wow! Sox starter Daisuke Matsuzaka was mediocre, which is his normal, going six innings and giving up four runs, all of them in the first four innings. But the Boston bullpen put up goose eggs in the seventh, eighth and ninth innings and that allowed the Red Sox offense to take over. They did just that.

Theo Epstein decided that the Red Sox would not make any last minute trading deadline moves, saying this...

“We have a team that has the ability to get really hot as we get healthy and play our way right back to where we want to go."

I hate to say this AND agree with it, but Theo is gearing up for next year. The 2010-2011 off season should be amazing in terms of who will be available. But after seeing yesterday's game, the Boston Red Sox ain't giving up, no way, no how, don't even think about it. GO SOX.
