FUN FACT:  Watching your team lose twice to the Indians [Monday (4-2) and Tueday (7-3)] on TIVO fast-forward is no less painful than watching it unfold in real time.

I have no empirical proof of this, yet I believe it to be true.


MEMO TO RED SOX:  Your rare back-to-back-to-back home runs would have been soooo much cooler had you not allowed the other team to score seven runs in the previous inning!!!!! 

Just sayin’….

Do I despair of the Red Sox? 

Well, yes, frankly I do. 

Does it comfort me that we have "been here before", most recently in 2004 when we were down three games to one?

No.  Not in the least.  I don’t care, nor do I believe, that’s how we roll.

Do I have confidence in Beckett for Game Five?

Yes.  But that confidence doesn’t extend in to Game Six and Game Seven (even if it does send us back to Boston).

So is that it for Red Sox blogging for a while?

I suspect so.
