I'm mostly posting this to show Sherm that I CAN stay up this late.

Good game, although I did think it was a bit premature -- tempting fate, and the gods of the thing -- for Francona to change out so many players in the 8th inning. But it all turned out OK.

I watched all game to get a glimpse of Sherm and Erik S. bonding in the stands. But no-joy.

One of my favorite moments was in the 9th, when replacement third baseman Kevin Youkilis made a nice play to first, and the crowd, in this visitors park, began chanting "Yoooooook!" just like they were all back in Fenway.

It's a Redsox Nation.
