    Pats now trail again. Real red-letter day for Boston sports.

    And it's not just because of injuries and poor pitching.  When was the last time the offense came up with a clutch hit?  When was the last time they rallied to win a game?  Blame the pitching all you want (and, yes, it was a huge contributing factor), but the offense is equally to blame.  I don't care what the statistics indicate: Eliminate the 3-4 games in which they scored 12+ runs and then what?

    Red Sox are lucky the Yankees don't care about these games.

    They'll be tied with the Rays for the WC by 10:30 tonight.  They'll be a game behind after tomorrow.  Dare anyone to challenge that prediction.

    AGON for a guy that says he's here to beat the Yanks you never seem to show up for the games.
    Rays are about to win.....this is getting real interesting real fast!

    Oh, you mean AGon didn't come up with a clutch hit and spark a rally? Shocking.

    That's about what I expected

    2x he ended a yankee loss looking

    he now has more GDP's than HR's

    he's been less than impressive down the stretch

    With nothing on the line, and playing only half their starters, the Yanks still did not even break a sweat in this game.

    I give up, it looks like the Sox just have nothing, and are lost out there.

    Some day, some one is going to write an intriguing book about exactly what happened to this team.  Would be interesting to know precisely what's going on inside the clubhouse.  This team is not just "snake bitten".  Something happened to cause this fundamental meltdown.  Poor chemistry?  Tito lost the team?  They just weren't as good as thought?  All that and more?

    Lackey is all that stands between the Sox and the Rays being tied for the WC after tonight - says Jim Rice after the game.  I still have hope that the Sox will get the WC...can't give up until it's over.

    I don't know either, but it sure looks like something did.  I can see CC having a bad year, players who get big contracts and then go into tough cities like Boston and NY often have a bad first year.  But looking at the numbers, AGon looks good, Ortiz looks good, Peddy looks good, Ells, I am satisfied with Scutaro.

    I am not at all happy with the battery, though.  Maybe that key component breaking down has dragged everyone down with them, I don't know.
