Game One of baseball’s World Series last night turned up pretty much everything I would have expected, for better or worse. The Red Sox won, 12 pitchers were used, and the game ended after midnight.
Basically this is 2013 all over again. My only question going in was, “Who’s going to be the Ortiz this year?”
Would you have guessed Eduardo Nunez?
Yeah, that guy. Former Yankee hitting the first World Series pinch-hit home run since a certain Mr. Matsui in 2009. Broke the game open.
Guess those reports about his being unable to play were a bit off.
Said that about Gibson for Game One in ’88 as well.
