So the Red sox win again on Sept. 22nd, clinching a Playoff spot. Very dramatic win, Gagne blows yet another save in the 8th, Tek and Lugo go deep in the 9th to tieing and go ahead runs. Wake's turn to pitch and Mirabelli had missed a few games but was coming back for this game...which brings us to...
The Paths of the Knuckle
Scene: Red Sox Locker room, During last nights playoff clinching celebration.
Lowell: We clinched a playoff spot, thanks to some timely hitting.
BigPapi: A Defensive Shortstop that hits the game winning RBI When a DH can not, I’ll never hear the end of it.
Lowell: We still need to align our pitching for the playoffs. We must seek out Wakefield and show him that Mirabelli is ready to play.
Lugo, BigPapi and Lowell carrying a very large sack, travel through a long forgotten access tunnel from the locker room to the visiting bullpen.
King of the Knuckle: The Pitchers do not suffer the Batters to pass through here.
Lowell: You will suffer me. I summon you to take your place in the playoff rotation.
King of the Knuckle: None but Mirabelli may command me!
Lowell reaches into the large sack he is carrying and pulls out…
King of the Knuckle: That catcher was broken!
Lowell: He has been re-made.
Lowell: Pitch for us. Regain your honor. What say you? WHAT SAY YOU?!
King of the Knuckle: We will WIN!
