Pick your cliché

"Win or go home", "Backs to the wall", "One game at a time". They're all being said, and, as is often the case with clichés, they're all true.

The rational me really doesn't know whether this team has what it takes to climb out of the hole they've dug for themselves, but the optimistic anything's-possible-in-baseball me keeps remembering other seasons and other deep holes they climbed out of.

The Sox seem to be in the right frame of mind for the game. If the bats turn up and Daisuke does his thing, a flight back to Tampa for Game 6 could be on the cards.
