When the media finally decides to remove the knee pads and wipe up after the Joe Torre press conference (it’s such a big deal, we hear the Food network will carry the feed live), hopefully they will find some time to ruminate over the postseason dominance of Josh Beckett. Even if you only saw snippets between another hilarious episode of The Office (is there a better laugh-out-loud show on TV?) and the thrilling USF/Rutgers game, then you know the movement on his pitches was filthy. We must have switched channels during commercials just in time to see Beckett strike out at least five Indians. (Actually, it totally reminded us of a time, maybe 15 years ago, when we decided to only fast forward to the best parts of the Karate Kid - Daniel getting his ass kicked on the beach, Daniel getting pushed down that hill on his bike, the Halloween party where Johnny rolls the joint and then kicks Daniel’s ass, etc - and we swear that each time we randomly press play, one of our best scenes was on. There were probably three witnesses. It was epic.) Where does that leave CC Sabathia? He’s 1-2 in the postseason, but if you were on a dig in Tunisia for the last six months, and were told these were the two best pitchers in the AL, there’d be no question who your Cy Young winner is.
Here’s the best part of Game six - it doesn’t coincide with Friday Night Lights! At the risk of interrupting serious baseball talk … is it even possible to play F, Marry, Kill with Lyla, Tyra and Julie? Oh, sure it is.
