Earl, smiles all around last night, from the mound to the plate.
It was weird...EEI (yikes) was saying (I can't remember which guy), "At the beginning of the year if someone said Beckett would get his career high in wins, the team would have one of the best closers in the game, Schilling would be back in form, they'd have the best defense in the league, and Papi would hit 52 HRs, would you have believed it?"What is funny is that I wouldn't have. I especially wouldn't have believed that all those things could come true and the team wouldn't make the playoffs...and they might finish in third in their division.
