In response to TheExaminer's comment:
I predicted Sox in 4 before thise series started, so that is right in line even with this annoying loss. However, my common sense is forced to rcognize the high possibility that we could still lose this series. Nobody on this forum needs to be reminded of the history of games in that building. We just saw it again tonight. If they win game 4, theyre going to fully believe they will win 5, will have Price again, and with the momentum on their side, the Sox will be the ones under pressure. If you say theres no way it could happen, youre naive. I just watched it happen last year in Cincinatti.
The problem with tonight was that it was not just a routine loss. We blew a three run lead. Clay serving a meatball to Longoria with first base open was inexcusable. The infield meltdown in the 8th was confounding. Playing for the tie in the 9th, on the road makes no sense. Farrell pushed all the wrong buttons and got himself outmanaged by Maddon. The walk off against our closer was hard to take. The Rays are back from the dead, with all the momentum. The Sox have been able to bounce back from these kind of things all year. Now , they are going to have to do it again . Let's just hope they can.
