If you watch the Red Sox at all regularly on the NESN cable channel, you’ve been sick for weeks of seeing their ad for their computer recreation of Game 7 in 2003. What if Grady Little had pulled Pedro in the 8th with Boston up 5-3? Would Boston have won the game and, very likely, the Series against an inferior Marlins team, instead of leaving Pedro in despite his obvious exhaustion to extend the Curse for another year? Would Little have had to be kept on as manager after that despite his obvious cluelessness? (Well, they didn’t address that, apparently)
Well, I did intend to actually watch the thing, out of morbid curiosity. But, well, I didn’t. Did anyone catch it? What was the result? Was the guy who called the WEEI Whiner Line every day for the next 2 years, just to say “Timlin in the 8th, Williamson in the 9th”, right?
