While watching the game last night it felt like it was going to be one of those 3-1 low scoring Sox wins, but things just started to go wrong. Matsuzaka just wasn't too sharp, and we didn't get the timely hits we needed. We can't win every game even though it's become hard not to get greedy. Having the bases loaded with no out and not scoring one run is never going to help the winning cause. Even though David Ortiz almost had a very "David Ortiz-esque" hit in that inning. We were about 8 feet away from a tie ball game and all momentum.
Oh yeah, J.C. Romero, you're still not impressing us.

The Sox now have a day off with the 13.5 games back New York Yankees heading into town. Two out of three is all the Sox need here, and even if we're swept (not going to happen) we still have a 10 digit + lead. Which means life is good. However, you know who life isn't good for right now? A-Rod.
This guy is just a whole bag of clown. On the night where the NY Post basically called him out on his post losing activities (which looks like may have his wife on the outs) A-Rod went all bush league on the game of baseball once again. On a pop-up in between short and third A-Rod yelled "Mine!" while running the bases. Are you kidding me?!? I play in a couple softball leagues and this would never be done. slAp-Rod said he called "Hah!" which is just a blatant lie, and in all reality not any better. If you watch the YouTube video below it sure doesn't look like "Hah!". I can't wait until the next time the Jays play the Yankees and he gets absolutely drilled.
Same old A-Rod though. Amazing player, who happens to be a really big d**c*e. This also shows that his slide on Dustin in the Bronx wasn't him playing hard and trying to win, it was him being a d**c*e....again. I also can't wait for every pop-up this guy gets in Fenway, that'll be really fun to not only watch, but listen to. Lastly, they should hand out blond wigs at the turnstiles, now THAT would be classic.
