*MOJO* - BOS @ CLE - Gangsters Day 1

"You have an all out prize fight, you wait until the fight is over, one guy is left standing. And that's how you know who won."



Wins aren't just handed to you on a silver platter. You have to claw and scrape from nothing and make wins for yourself. You think Cleveland is just going to roll over and hand you a win? Of course not. You have to see what you want and take it, just like Al Capone would.

You think they are going to just going to get easy fastballs over the plate, David Ortiz? You are going to have to take the slop they give you and either beat the shift going the other way, or send it over their heads where they can't catch it. You think everything is going to be soft grounders right to you, Alex Gonzalez? Not a chance, lets see you get that jersey dirty and make some plays for the highlight reel. You think those hitters are going to be getting themselves out, Josh Beckett? They've got some talent, but so do you, so use that great stuff of yours to show them the way back to the bench.

Tonight's game won't be delivered on a silver platter. You know what you want, now go take it. We'll see which team is the last one standing.

I did some reading on the Cleveland mafia. Read about the Lonardos and the Porellos, who were the progenitors of La Cosa Nostra in Cleveland, and all those who followed in their bloody wake.

Boy, you sure like "words". I'd call you a "literati", but I don't even know what that means. I could be calling you a clothing iron for all I know.
