The Final Lineup

It's here, it's here! Game 162! The end to all suffering!

This is the last time we will see a lineup this bad! The last time we'll see Daisuke take the mound for the Red Sox! The last, the last, the last!

Never before have I been so happy to see this particular season go, and hopefully I never will again. Tonight we end a year of misery, begin an offseason with some reasonable promise, and look to a brighter and better future that has no Daisuke Matsuzaka or Bobby Valentine in it.

Knock on wood. Knock on oh so very much wood.
