Hey, things looked bad for the rebels in the Empire Strikes Back too… 

0-2 isn’t the end of the world. We’ve seen teams in hockey and basketball come back from 0-2 deficits in best-of-seven series. Heck, I’ve seen the Red Sox come back from 0-2 deficits in best-of-five series (’99 against the Indians, ’03 against the A’s). It is do-able, but discouraging after watching the Red Sox flail away at Lieber’s pitches.

Here is the upside for the Red Sox: the next three games are all in Boston. Why can't the Red Sox, fired up at home, come out like gang-busters and stick it to the Yankees and send the series back to the Bronx on Sunday night with a 3-2 edge? Undoubtedly, they'll have to play better baseball. In two games this team has managed one walk? Johnny Damon is oh-for-eight? Manny Ramirez has a single? Manny can’t play defense? These aren’t the Red Sox I know! (Well, aside from Manny not being able to play D.)

Bottom-line: Friday night is a must-win, because I just can’t see the Red Sox emerging from an 0-3 hole here. Win or die.

Reading links: Eric Neel at ESPN's Page 2 pleads with fans to watch the NLCS. Sox fan Ben Jacobs finds hope at Hardball Times, meanwhile Yankees partisan Larry Mahnken doubts the Sox. SI's John Donovan adds his voice to the "Red Sox are in trouble" chorus. No kidding.
