It is come to this.
The defending World Champion Boston Red Sox have been reduced to “Oh please don’t just TOTALLY suck this season!”
There is no hope for a repeat.
There is little hope for a winning season.
They are currently on pace to go 73-89. Somehow that is significantly better looking than 72-90. Something about book ending a title with a pair of 90 loss seasons really hurts. Knowing that Tazawa’s melt down in the 7th could also have lost Jon Lester’s final Red Sox start also hurts.
The Rays are insane right now. An 8 game winning streak and tapping on the door of the playoffs.
As for the Red Sox and their fans? We always have the 2013 DVD.
Time to update the Dodged Bullet/Teeth Grinder tally.
An explanation of what this is all about can be found HERE.

Another Dodger and Giant game today. Let’s see if the Giants can hold them to 3 triples.
