World Series Cup - Game 6 Preview

You just knew this column was coming, didn't you?
We have seen Game 6 heaven and Game 6 hell.

Game 6 gave us Carlton Fisk’s 12th-inning moon shot off the left-field foul pole and a video for the ages. Peter Gammons wrote a book titled, “Beyond the Sixth Game,” and a couple of kids named Affleck and Damon used the story line to win an Oscar.

Game 6 also gave us a little dribbler by Mookie Wilson, Vin Scully exclaiming, “Behind the bag . . . !’’ and Bill Buckner riding a Train They Call Infamy all the way to a featured role in an episode of “Curb Your Enthusiasm.’’
Wacha vs. Lackey? To pitch (or not) to Ortiz? That's too much real work!

Victorino looks like a guy whose best days are behind him.

Dan really nailed it back in February.

I can't wait for Shank's references to the early-60s Dave Clark Five tune -

I Knew It All The Time.

Of course Mike Smith, Lenny Davidson, and Dave Clark gave it a conviction Mr. Shank doesn't have.
