    I agree. They should be wiping up the floor with this team and that jerk of a manager who was mad at the Red Sox for signing Carl Crawford. What amazes me is why would JJ Hardy want to sign an extension with this team to stay there.

    [QUOTE]Yet another missed opportunity. Hate to sound like a broken record but while the pitching has been awful during this stretch, the offense's inability to get clutch hits/separate against mediocre pitching is also to blame. There's no excuse for this lineup to be held "in check" by anybody Baltimore sends to the mound.

    The way Buck is managing this game, the O's will never let this game called off.  They would rather wait 5 hours to finsh this one.

    [QUOTE]That was a potentially good inning hurt by stupidity. JBAY you are right this could be the end of Francona if this team does not make it into the post season. I have critisized him in the past but never wanted him fired. In close games he does some dumb stuff like having Papi go for two in that case.

    That wasn't Tito that had him go for two.

    Who said that was Francona's idea? I doubt he had anything at all to do with it. That was a bad decision by Ortiz.

    Papi and Crawful, killing us tonight....
    Bonehead moves...

    It is setting up for more torture...just like the old days
    Rays will lose big..

    Sox will lose  4-3,  at 3 freaking AM after rain delay.....Pap will gak it up..blowing big chances as usual all year.

    Then Sox have to fly to Tampa for a 4 pm game!

    It's in the umps hands now. O's have no say in it. This is such a big game , they will surely wait as long as necessary.

    Agreed but it is a reflection on Francona.

    AJ Burnett to pitch the bottom of the seventh for Yanks.  Still only two hits for Rays.

    Another thing, every time there's rain, we end up getting in trouble and losing.

    If there is a delay in this game how long do they wait 5 hours to continue it ? Suppose the Red Sox loose. How do you expect them to get out of Baltimore and fly into Tampa to play a one game playoff tomorrow ? This is if the Rays loose as well.

    One good thing about the rain is that the TB game will be over before ours. If we win, we'll know right away that we made it.

    Yankees go quietly in the top of the seventh.  AJ Burnett to pitch the bottom of the inning.  Still 7-0 Yankees - only two hits for Rays.

    Sox are torturing.  So many missed opportunities to score.

    Don't know if Sox deserve to make it to the playoffs, but same can be said of the Rays the way they are playing today.
