In case you’ve been living under a rock, Game Six is TONIGHT. The Sox are leading 3-2 with the opportunity to win in all at Fenway Park for the first time since 1918. If you recall our preview from last week, myself, Matty D, and Thunderblog Expert Greg Piatelli all picked the Red Sox to win in six games. Eerily enough, Greg has called how this series would play out:
As Greg pointed out to me yesterday, I did not quote him on that in the preview. He has self-proclaimed himself, “The Prophet.” Therefore, I would to issue a formal apologize. I assumed when people saw the name “Greg Piatelli” before the pick, they would know that it was, as Matty D likes to say, a Cold Hard Lock. I mean look what happened to the two that did submit a quote, they’re wrong.
Speaking of, Monday afternoon, a certain Executive Producer of the Thunderblog issued this statement to the world of Facebook:
Bold strategy Cotton, but it didn’t pay off. Turns out the intern enticed JSB to post that, goddamn intern.
Tonight, Michael Wacha, JSB’s boy, faces off with John Lackey in a rematch of Game 2 where both pitchers went at least six innings and let up at least two earned runs while striking out six batters each. If the Cards win tonight, Jake Peavy will take the mound for Boston against Joe Kelly for the Cards. Just remember these wise words from the seemingly unstoppable Big Papi:
Don’t doubt Greg “The Prophet” Piatelli (or Matty D and the G-Man), it’s ending tonight.
