Oh let us play one more inning!!!


Thanks God.

Really… thanks a bunch.

You couldn’t let the rain ease up for ONE inning!

The Sox were down 2-1 in the top of the 6th… and safe to say there was more than enough time to score one run.

Lester was settling in! Youk could have homered again!

There was more than enough time to complete the sweep of the Marlins! Don’t get me wrong, I am fine with 2 out of 3 against anyone… but still!

Why start the game if it looked like it was going to get washed out?!!!

Look at me.
I’m grinding my teeth!

I guess by definition this was a teeth grinder. And it is no fault of the Red Sox, but if they miss the playoffs by a game, I’ll be thinking of this game!

OK, better add it to the tally.
