BOS 1 4 1
CLE 3 5 1
One would think that a quality baseball team like the Boston Red Sox would come off of a severe beat down deep in the heart of Texas, and they would come up to poor Cleveland and take out 3 games worth of hurt and embarrassment on their poor LeBronless selves. One would think that. One would be wrong.
The Red Sox went down like grain before a thresher, letting young Josh Tomlin have his way with them to the tune of 7 innings with only 3 hits and 1 run allowed. Josh Beckett pitched adequately for Boston, allowing 3 runs over 5 innings, but, just like Buchholz' efforts down south, too little, and too late.
If I were billionaire Red Sox owner John Henry, I might be asking myself why exactly I am paying Carl Crawford American money, because Josh Reddick, and perhaps even Josh Groban, could hit .133.
I know that's irrational, and I don't care. I'm frustrated.
