Not too sad about the Sox loss last night. They didn’t beat themselves. Tampa beat them.
They had their shots…especially the pop-up by Pedroia where he just missed a homer, and you can’t ask for much more than bases-loaded in the 8th with J.D. Drew at the plate (though I’d rather have seen him strike out honestly than with a stupid check swing). But they couldn’t cash in, and the Rays were just that good.
I will say that this is the first time since the trade that I actually missed Manny.
