Back in 2004, I blogged a short message about the game four performance of the Red Sox against the Yankees.
I had turned off the game after 7 innings, missing Bill Mueller’s RBI single in the bottom of the ninth to tie the game, and ultimately Ortiz’s game winning homer in the bottom of the 12th to win the game for Boston.
In my post, I warned the Red Sox that their defeat was inevitable.
Of course, this was 2004, where despite trailing the Yankees 3-0, the Red Sox rallied with four wins in a row in some of the most thrilling post season baseball I can remember, and ultimately going on to win the World Series.
I apparently don’t know much about baseball. “Inevitable doom” indeed.
