The Red Sox were down 6-2 early and I thought “Eh, looks like a loss today.”
Then Mike Napoli homered to make it 6-5 and the Sox would tie it and send it into extras.
The result? A loss. NO DIFFERENT than the 6-2 result except it was more frustrating and consumed too much of my time.
It’s always better to lose 10-0.
The A’s played a close game, but I never got the sense they were going to win it. Despite the 3-1 score, it was never that close.
Meanwhile the Giants drubbed Los Angeles.
Only the Red Sox need to be updated in the “Dodged Bullet/Teeth Grinder” tally.
An explanation of what this is all about can be found HERE.

Frankly, I could use a blowout… either as a win or a loss.
