It seems that a lot of Red Sox fans woke up this morning wondering if that Game 5 comeback from 7-0 was a dream.
Rays fans will note that they still have a 3-2 lead in the American League Championship Series, which will shift back to Tropicana Field on Saturday night. They might want to take another look at that record home run display in the early going.
Everyone also can download and own the full TBS broadcast from the MLB.com Division Series and League Championship Series area on iTunes, and then replay it to their hearts' content forever.
The game also will be available through MLB.com Condensed Games, a 20-minute on-demand highlight product featuring every out, hit and run.
It is a keeper, a postseason classic that people are going to talk about for a long time.
It was long balls by irrepressible forces like Carlos Pena, Evan Longoria and B.J. Upton of the Rays. It was all those zeroes and Ks rung up by Scott Kazmir, answering any question about whether he should have started.
It was the "Kings of Comeback," as one sign said at Fenway. So close to the end of their run, they kept alive the hope of a rare World Series repeat champion and they also kept alive the possibility of a Wild Card reaching the Fall Classic every year since 2002.
It was David Ortiz finally looking like Big Papi of old, clubbing a three-run homer off reliever Grant Balfour in the seventh inning. It was a gassed Jonathan Papelbon setting down the Rays in order in the eighth, then a J.D. Drew two-run homer, then Mark Kotsay's double and Coco Crisp's memorable 10-pitch at-bat concluding with the hit that brought in Kotsay with the tying run.
Unbelievably, it was Drew's walk-off hit to bring in Kevin Youkilis with the winning run. Suddenly, a sure Phillies vs. Rays World Series was left up in the air, and that's where we are right now. While we wait, it's a great time to see what just happened again.
You probably won't believe it this time, either.
