Let's Try This Again

There's an old saying, courtesy of George W. Bush: Fool me once, shame on you... if you fool me you can't get fooled again.

That's how we feel about tonight's Game Five of the ALCS. We got burned pretty bad by the Red Sox last game, but with Daisuke Matsuzaka on the mound tonight against the oft-injured Scott Kazmir, we feel confident going with the Red Sox again, who are no strangers to a playoff series deficit.

Boston Red Sox ML -155 over the Tampa Bay Rays

The Sox will try to fend off the Rays and prevent them from a match-up with the Phillies in the World Series, at least for another game.

In honor of Bush's last months in office, we're hoping he was right when he said we can't get fooled agian.
