GLYNN CEO AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Run date: 10/7/2016 EXTRA Innings ._.. ~ by Sal Giarratani David "Big Papi" Ortiz ~ue Losses in ~nal Six ,Send Red Sox to Cleve~md Well, the season is history. Their final loss to Toronto paired with a win by the Indians on the final day of the 2016 season meant the Sox lost home-field advantage, and open up in Cleveland for the best of five series. All the Red Sox needed in hindsight was one more [deleted] win, but instead the Sox ended the season losing five out of six games. One more win, and the series would be beginning in Boston, not Cleveland. Well, that's all spilled milk now as the Sox must win three games out of five. It would have been nicer to have a possible fifth game in Fenway, but that's not going to happen. The Sox did win 93 games, which was very good. The young- er guys are making the future look pretty good.

Arroyo, Register of Probate Run date: 10/7/16 127 RBIs, and a .315 batting average. Big Papi goes out on top. Mookie Betts had 214 hits and Pedroia had 201 hits. The Sox had three batters in the top five for batting average. Mookie with a .318 average, Pedro'ta with a .318 average, and Big Papi at .315. The team had 176 homers, which is pretty dam good, and the team batting average of .246 wasn't bad either. As far as pitching went, there were a few good surprises, and some unexpected not-so-good surprises. Rick Poreello looked like the ace of the team, going- 22-4 with a 3.15 ERA. David Price, the guy we expected to be the ace, was not so good at 19-9 with a 3.99 ERA (definitely not so good for the price!) Steve MIRACLE PRAYER Dear Heart of Jesus, in the past I have asked You for many favours. This time, I ask you this very special one (mention favour). Take it, dear Heart of Jesus, and place it within Your own broken heart where Your Father sees it. Then, in His merciful eyes, it will become Your favour, not mine. Amen. Say for three days, promise publica- tion and favour will be granted.

Until he got hurt, he was the number two starter, and finished 13-6 with a 3.33 ERA. Eduardo Rodriguez had some good and bad moments, but is looking good for the future. He finished 3-7 with a 4.71 ERA. He had some great flashes, and has a good future here. Buch- holz was Buchholz, going 8-10 with a 4.78 ERA. I would lose him in the off-season. Kimbrel was okay, but not great, going 2-6, earning a 3.40 ERA with 24 saves. Uehara went 2-3 with a 3.45 ERA. Time looks like it is running out for him. Abad, with an 0-2 record and 6.39 ERA, looked real bad to me. The kid, Benintendi, looked good in 34 games finishing with a .295 average. Reminds me a bit of Tony C. Next year will get here soon enough, but now it is on to the post-season, and the Sox are right in the mix. Could the Sox go all the way to give Ortiz a great storybook ending to his career?
