The Red Sox are now one precious win from winning the World Series. In a clean game played with exemplary defense, the Sox beat the Cardinals, 4-1. Pedro pitched masterfully. He was the old school Petey. David ("the Big Cat") Ortiz, our designated hitter in American League games, came up huge on defense. And St. Louis just looked flat out dejected, after some missed opportunities.
I'm a Sox fan, a member of the ever-growing Red Sox Nation, and I know nothing is certain. But I'm in a heightened state of alert. We're right now in the same position as the Yankees had us a few weeks ago, up 3-0 in a best-of-seven. But the Cardinals don't look like the Red Sox.
