    This is a bad game to lose, sorry for Rays, happy for Sox !

    21 games over 0.500

    1.5 games behind Phillies for best record

    1.5 game ahead of Yanks, and 7 ahead of Rays

    Watchout for the Rangers, who are on a 11-0 streak

    Soooooo  long everyone !

    No doubt about it, Francona is a genius. I was impressed, especially how he managed the 11th inning. You know, when Ortiz and Youk walked with no outs. Bingo, there it is, THE FRANCONA FACTOR. He pinch hits DMac for Drew. Everyone in the park and watching TV knows what he's up to. Don't you? DMAc is going to lay down a sacrifice bunt. LMAO, nope, with his anemic average, the genius figures he has a better chance of getting a hit than he does of sacrificing the runners to 2nd and 3rd. I don't have to look up stats, DMac gets a hit less than twice in 10 at bats. I wonder how many times he'd be successful in laying down a sac bunt if he had 10 chances at it? But we had no idea that they'd walk DMac, and Francona, in his infinite wisdom, knew it. Don't ask me how he knew, but I'm sure his minions will come up with exactly how he knew. Okay, bases loaded and no outs. The Sox are sure to score here, aren't they?? The manager will surely try to squeeze that, desperately needed, run in, won't he?? He used his masterful managerial mind and SAT & SPIT as he watched the players try to win the game. They looked for guidance and he SAT & SPIT, or STOOD & SPIT. To be fair, I'm sure he uttered words of encouragement, such as, GO GETTUM or YOU DA MAN or HANG IN THERE, YOU'LL GETTUM. Absolutely inspirational leadership!
    I can't wait to hear the excuses , this should be truly comical.
    I'm betting that he knows more than we do about his players, and having DMac bunt was inadvisable, since he has been having trouble shifting his feet to turn and face the pitcher, which he'd need to do in order to bunt effectively. Also, asking him to bunt would have been chancy, since he's been playing more than he's used to playing, and is in need of a day off. Who but Francona could have known these things?? Masterful managing job?? Absolutely, when you learn, after the fact, what Francona knew.

    More drivel from 1941.  Tito has confidence in DMac to put a good swing on the ball, which he did.  He ended up with a walk and the Sox had the hitter who EVERYONE wanted up in a big spot, the heir apparent in rf, playing instead of Drew, etc.  The game was right there to be won and it didn't get done.  Bases loaded with no outs vs. 2nd and 3rd with one out in 1941's twisted world and 1941 is b!tching about Tito.  Too bad Tito couldn't grab a bat and do the job himself.  The Sox did not fail to score a run because of Tito, they failed because they struck out 2x in a row and popped out to the catcher.

    In case you have not figured it out yet, the Sox don't like to give up outs via sacrifice bunts.  This is an organizational decision.  To sit here and be surprised and worked up because the Sox don't bunt in that spot is the definition of insanity.

    1941 is never happy unless he is miserable. His only happiness is annoying posters on BDC.

    No ... was it his fault that Reddick and Varitek struck out and Scutaro popped to the catcher?

    Kudos to all you East Coast folk -- J-Bay is the only one I know for sure, but I'm sure there were others -- who made it all the way through last night. I caved after 12th, I think it was, though I did check my phone when I woke up around 3.

    Oh, and London ... heck, you're more East than any of us.
