FINAL: Red Sox 8 Dodgers 1

Leading up to this series, we heard a lot about how great the LA Dodgers were.  They had a 9.5 game lead in the NL West (at the start of this series) and were considered a lock for the playoffs.

Well, the reality is the NL West is as soft as babies shit and this weekend they played a legitimate playoff contender for the first time in a long time and ended up losing 2 of 3.  What a friggin weekend.

And Jake Peavy was pissa last night.  The guy pitched a complete game and only allowed three hits and one run.  The dude was friggin lights out.  Dustin Pedroia had a good night, going 3 for 4 and Mike Napoli went 2 for 4 with a home run, a double and three RBI...thank you Rachel Starr.

A lot of people were calling this series a World Series preview.  Christ, after what we just saw, I really, really hope so.

Oh yea, and the Tampon Bay Rays lost to the Yankees, so the Red Sox lead in the AL East is one game.
