  • Beckett dances in the proverbial rain, never getting wet.

  • It was a good game. Tying run scores on a squeeze, go-ahead run scored after Andrus was HBP then scored on a WP. All off Beckett.
    Then Albers gives up homer to Cruz to make it 5-3.
    Sox again failing to execute w/ RISP.

  • Pretty much hoping the Yankees take at least 2 of 3 so that brass understands this isn’t the year to go for it. It really, really isn’t.
