Opted to stay home to watch Game 2 of this series.
And, wow, sorta glad I did. Seven homers already by the 5th (tied the postseason record) and this is looking to be the type of game you don't wanna half-*** watch at the bar with no sound.
Dustin Pedroia is officially back. Beckett is officially not right. Evan Longoria is officially scary. Carl Crawford is officially an idiot. (It's gonna be great how the same people who chastise Manny for minor brain-farts in June will not even mention that potentially game-changing, lacksidaisical and "disgraceful" pick-off.)
Regardless, this is becoming a helluva series and I'll be sincerely disappointed if there is not at least one bench-clearing brawl.
