ALCS Game 7 Open Thread

I love game 7s. I hope we get one more before the season fades into history. According to Caleb Pfeiffer at BP, 11 out of the 14 teams who have forced a game 7 after being behind 3-1 in the series have gone on to win Game 7. Advantage Sox. Only 1 road team has lost game 7 -- that great game where Sid Bream made his mad dash to home plate. Does anyone remember who made the throw that almost nailed El Sid at the plate?

It's Lester vs. Garza tonight -- two excellent young pitchers. Most of the country has no idea who these 2 guys are but they are truly two of the best young pitchers in the game. Lester, right now, is one of the top 5 pitchers in the AL. Advantage Sox. I know that 99.9% of us are pulling for the Rays but I'd say the Sox are now the favorites. I hope I'm wrong. Is there any doubt right now that these are the two best teams in baseball? Not in my mind. I hope the Phils can stay w/ this game's winner long enough to drag the season out a couple extra days.

BTW, the Rays better win this game in the first 7 innings. Jonathan Papelbon has NEVER allowed a postseason run.
