Can you dodge a bullet and grind your teeth in the same game?


Games like tonight’s game piss me off.

The Red Sox had a great comeback in the 8th inning and blew it in the 11th.

I feel like that is a late innings comeback wasted!

Let’s have no more of that.

The Yankees have found their groove and this year, and this season is promising to be Sox and Yankees swapping first place at least 3 or 4 more times.

Doesn’t mean I can’t be grinding my teeth tonight.

Let’s update the board.

DODGED A BULLET GAMES – 10
