    Good list. I attended that April 29 double-header (the only 2 Sox games I attended all year, and my first time at a Sox game since 2018 due to no longer living in Chicago) and it was good times. Certainly, the emergence of Rodon and Cease as reliable MLB starters was one of the major storylines of the season and that double-header was a bold announcement of that emergence.

    I suspect that, in the end, the Field of Dreams game will be seen as the highlight of the 2021 regular season, the way that AJ's walk-off against the Dodgers is probably seen by most people as the highlight of the 2005 regular season.

    The next week will determine if we fondly remember 2021 or curse it as an unfortunate year.

                  That, in my opinion, was the regular season game of the decade for the Sox.

                    The Red Sox are 3-4 against the White Sox and 8-11 against Tampa this year.

                    I thought the White Sox were the only team that sucks against teams over .500.

                      And yet again...

                      Overall: 27-29 vs. teams above .500 (not bad...)
                      Home: 17-10 (Very good)
                      Road:10-19 (blah...)

                        Its interesting how all of the talking heads have their "analysis" of who is going to win the World Series. The great majority of them are picking the Rays. Personally I think that the best team in baseball right now is the Rays but that really doesn't matter much. Boston can give them a really good match and they have a nice blend of both power and contact guys. It will come down to pitching, though, and the Rays are better on paper. If Sale was healthy, though, it would be a pretty even series but he is not.

                        On the other side, I think that the Sox will crush the Astros because of their over-all advantage in pitching. Our pitching will dominate this series, especially if Rodon can go 5-6 innings on his start.
