'Tis But a Flesh Wound - But seriously, it can't get worse for the Sox than the bottom of the 5th... can it? Bert, cheer us up!
I’m not sure I’m really qualified to talk Reader #1 or Red Sox Nation off the ledge. And I’m sure I don’t want a “We told you so” chorus aimed at me if things don’t work out.
So with the caveat that this is only how I’m going to position the current situation in my mind, here goes…
--“Momentum in baseball is the next game’s starting pitcher.”
--Josh Beckett is pitching Game 5.
--So is CC and they beat up on him pretty well in Game 1.
--The top of the 11th was worse. Last night we had more time to come back and we hadn’t blown the lead. Plus, I wasn’t freezing in the bleachers last night.
--You may have all off-season to be miserable. Keep hope alive for one more game.
