Wow - 12 straight.

There is just not much to say except WOW!! Best home stand in like forever, longest winning streak since the boys of Morgan, a four game lead in the division and every facet of the game played at a top level. Its hard to even begin to describe this game.

Where does one start, with the pitching? The fabulous catch by Coco in the 8th? The 1, 2, 3 inning by Papelbot? The scratch run in the 7th? The Shot to Center by Ortiz? The ok you scored two on a shot by Beltran but we've got some hitters on our side also sixth?

Wow! This team might be the best defensive team ever for the Red Sox. Sixteen straight games with out an error which ties the Major League mark, the fewest errors after 78 games since they started tracking this stat in 1960. The starting rotation seems to say, ok, you went six with only 2 runs so I am going to go 7 and pass it on to the next guy who takes the ball, stares into that mitt and says, no, no, no, I am not going to be the reason this streak ends and throws another gem. Wow!

Three games in Florida (actually 7 since they go to TB for the fourth), against a very young Marlins team who is playing as well as the Mets were before they ran into the Buzz Saw otherwise known as the Sox. The Marlins are currently 7 games under 500 but have won 6 of their last 10. Willis starts tonight against Johnson for the Sox. I hope, that Johnson's sinker, sinks and the gloves set the mark tonight, but no matter what, I expect to see that never say die attitude continue to make it's presence felt.

Starting tomorrow I should be back to a daily posting, was working on an outside project, which I hope to post pics on later this weekend.
