With the score 7-0, Tampa in the 7th inning last night, and an early morning trip to Logan on tap for this morning, I sat down and wrote what I thought would be a post-mortem on the 2008 Red Sox.
By about 12:15am the Red Sox had completed one of the most remarkable single-game comebacks ever seen around these parts, my post-mortem was in the trash can, and I couldn’t be happier.
David Ortiz had a three run blast, J.D. Drew hit a two run homer and then had the game winning hit in the bottom of the ninth to complete the comeback and give the Red Sox a 8-7 win and send the series back to Tampa.

Over in the Metro, even with the win, I’m a firm believer that the Red Sox need to do whatever it takes to sign Mark Teixeira and then find a place in the lineup for him.
The Celtics defeated the New Jersey Nets in preseason action last night, 111-108. Over on the BSMW Full Court Press, Kevin Henkin takes the Henry Paulson/Ben Bernanke approach to forecasting the upcoming Celtics season. It’s definitely worth a read.

The Patriots are getting ready for Monday night’s matchup with nemesis Mike Shanahan and the Denver Broncos. The Patriots can never seem to beat the Broncos, and even during the Super Bowl years, it was a struggle. (The all time series is something like 24-15 in favor of Denver.) The Broncos come in with a high powered passing attack, which seems like the exact wrong thing that the Patriots need to see right now. Check in at Patriots Daily and PatriotsLinks.com for all the previews and coverage.
