Currently trying to work out WTF is going on at Fenway Park, where the Red Sox were 9-0 up and are now 14-9 down, whilst using the tactic "let's intentionally walk someone so that the bases are loaded". They don't look they could buy an out at the minute.
Haha, that sounds like an interesting final inning. Can't wait to watch the entire highlights on ESPN tonight.
The Red Sox ended up loosing that game and are obviously in a bad way right now. The injuries don't help, but the way they have seemingly disintegrated is disappointing. Bostonians are not a patient bunch and at this rate Bobby Valentine will be fired before he gets his full lineup back. I love the anguish all of this causes their fans though. Theirs is the only fandom I hate more than Yankee Nation.
