Congratulations! You broke up a no-hitter in the ninth. You should be very proud.
There is no reason a team with this talent should be playing this poorly. I thought the All-Star Break would give the Sox a much needed rest and that they would come out of the gate ready for the second half. Boy was I wrong. We are now looking at 1-4 on this home stand so far. Matsuzaka, right on cue, is showing his true nature. He lulls you into a sense of false security with some decent pitching then OOPS, POW, SURPRISE! a 6 run inning. Clay Buchholz continues his post no-hitter funk. And now to pour salt in a gaping wound, the Angels manage to get the Braves to take freakin' Casey Kotchman and a AA prospect for Mark Teixeira. Why didn't Boston just offer Atlanta Joe Thurston and Kyle Snyder? They might have given us their whole team.
Oh crap. I think I see War, Pestilence, and Famine riding up over the hill. And you know who comes around right on their heels.
