So there’s one game and 8.5 innings left to go in the Red Sox’ forlorn season. It seems we should finish strong here at YFSF and post the last two game threads — we’re not fair-weather fans. We were here when the Sox were in first place. We’re here now that they’re fighting for second.
Another person who’s here, at long last? Manny Ramirez — DH-ing as David Ortiz takes a seat. Are we seeing perhaps the second-to-last game (or maybe even the last?) with Manny in a Red Sox uniform? Will tomorrow be the last time we see perhaps the greatest 3-4 combination in our lifetimes hit in the same lineup? It certainly makes these last two games feel special. An historic era could be drawing to a close.
