Red Sox reliever Hideki Okajima warmed up. Okie Dokie pitched 2 1/3 innings of relief and was named player of the game last night.

The moon rose over the Prudential Center in Boston before the start of Game 2 of the World Series.

The best feature of The Dancing Papelbon is that his legs move when someone swings the stick.

The K-Men broke out The Dancing Papelbon at the top of the center-field bleachers when the real Sox closer came out of the bullpen in the eighth inning ...

With his stolen base last night, Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury earned everyone in the country a free taco from Taco Bell on Tuesday, Oct. 30, between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m.

The Closah puts an exclamation point on his first World Series Save in Game 2 at Fenway. Jonathan ended any Rockie hopes of mounting another 9th inning miracle come-back.
