  • Wasted opportunity: Ellsbury crushes the ball, and Pedroia flies out, both well hit balls but with no paydirt.

  • I like this strategy of not letting Crawford on base.

  • 12 pitch 1-2-3 inning for Lester against Upton, Crawford and Longoria. Nice.

  • Papi with an almost home run to Gabe Kapler.

  • Very easy inning for Kazmeir. Not nice.

  • Wow, that game got away from Lester quickly. 5-1 Rays and still nobody out in the fifth.

  • Well, a pitcher’s duel through four and then Lester can’t make it out of the fifth. 7-1 Rays, runners on 1st and 2nd, only one out, Hunter Jones coming in. Bummer.

  • That inning started out with Lester giving up three cheap grounders, and then it all fell apart. It seems like every bad inning this year starts off with cheap hits.

  • I find it annoying that two of Lester’s three well-pitched games came against the Yankees.
    The Verducci effect in is full swing.

  • Sox get two in the bottom of the 5th, but Varitek leaves them loaded. 8-3 Rays, some sixth inning magic desperately needed.

  • Sixth inning magic confined to two runs (after the Rays scored five in their half of the inning). Jason Bay inexplicably misses a chance for a three-run-homer. 13-5 Rays. Way to go, Sox!

  • This is where Lopez should be seen on the mound: in a 13-5 blowout.
    Longoria with 43 RBI, on pace for 225 in the season (record: 191)

  • Wow McCarver knows absolutely nothing:
    “Manny Delcarmen seeing some action. They want him to come into the game in a mop-up situation because they want him to build up confidence. They’re hoping he can really help them in the future.”
    Manny Delcarmen 2009 stats: 0.59 ERA
    Stats the last three seasons: 2.56 ERA

  • Thankfully this travesty is over. Hope you all spent quality time with your kids …

  • PWNED!
    Gave up after bases loaded Rays in the 5th at 2-1. Wise decision.
