You just couldn’t LOSE, could you Red Sox?
You were down 5-1 early and it looked like a blowout that I didn’t have to worry about.
Not to quote John Belushi, but NOOOOOOOOO. You HAD to come back! You HAD to have a pair of Ortiz homers! You HAD to have a kick ass pick off play!
And THEN lose in the bottom of the ninth on a homer by a Twins player named Chris Parmelee, whose name I had to triple check to see if it was spelled correctly.
Seriously. It is always better to get creamed than endure a game like this!
Giants got crushed. A’s did some crushing. THOSE games were a lot less stressful.

Tomorrow is my birthday. I want nothing but great wins. I deserve it.
