Game 7

NESN reruns game seven tonight. In a way, to me, the mood of the game was a lot like the mood of the World Series. After the tension and the turmoil, it was almost a blessed relief. Ortiz-homer. Damon-grand slam. And they (and we) never looked back.

One thing that annoyed me with the coverage of the game. McCarver, Buck and Leiter throughout the game, kept discussing how amazing it was that Derek Lowe was pitching so well on three days rest. Well, guess what Announcer Boys, it's even more amazing than that. He pitched on *two* days rest. Two. Something that a pitcher has almost *never* done, or done so well. Even someone like Jim Lonborg, back in '67. I'm almost afraid that in the progression of the years, when the game is rerun on ESPN classic and clips are utilized that this may be forgotten. That the real, amazing fact might disappear from recollection. I hope not. What DLo did should be remembered in baseball minds forever.

And speaking of the man, Lowe speaks

I, for one, will miss him.
