Yeah, this is not nice. But, they would do it to us if the roles were reversed. So, what the hey! Here’s what R.S.N. is thinking today:
From Sawx Blog -
There’s a part of me that almost wants the Yankees to sweep today. The Red Sox should get freaking booed off of the field. What they’ve done as a team this weekend has been a mockery to the uniform.
From Singapore Sox Fan -
Damn it. Damn it all to hell. At least get one for pride.
From Hardball Heaven -
Sorry for the trite reference, but the fat lady is officially singing. It is 1:28 A.M. Eastern time, Monday morning, August 22, 2006, and the Red Sox are officially dead. It is over. O-v-a-h.
The Yankees just beat the Sox for the fourth time in a row, 8-5, as the Sox bullpen again imploded in late innings. The lead is now 5 1/2 games, and the Red Sox are done before Labor Day. Why oh why do we do this to ourselves?
Excellent team you’ve built, Theo. Long-term/short-term plan be damned – the bottom line is you’ve shown us you can craft an offense, but you can’t craft pitching. Funny, since you say games are won on pitching – try following your own advice.
From the Joy of Sox -
Another game, a new worst loss of the year — as Tito descends to a depth of managerial idiocy that might surprise even Grady Little.
From Surviving Grady -
No more talk of payrolls. No more talk of deadline trades not made. No more talk of injuries. When you shine the cold light of reality on things it comes down to this: the people who were getting things done early in the year are no longer coming through.
From Out In Left Field -
So, are you ready for some football?
After this weekend’s disaster at Fenway, with the Yankees taking four straight games at Fenway in what has easily been the worst series in memory for me, I’m starting to think Patriots and my fantasy football draft board.
All interesting stuff. But, I think FenwayNation.com says it best:
Reading all this, I think it’s important for the Yankees to win Game 5 today – or, if they have to lose, just lose it clean – - don’t let it be an Ortiz walk-off HR in the 9th that will perform CPR on RSN today.
