Joy Then Head-Bashing Then Joy!

The Yanks had it all planned out. 7th inning guy gives up no runs. 8th inning guy gives up no runs. Mariano comes in with a two-run lead for the automatic win. WRONG! Mo gives up 2 runs and then has the bases loaded with one out. But he gets the DP grounder and they go to extra innings.

But the Jays get a run off of "Doesn't Go" Nova in the 10th. Toronto wins. And they had to after Mo blew it, or Ida Ben Pissed.

In our game, 1-0 A's in the fifth.

[Update 12:57 a.m.: Red Sox LOSE. It stayed 1-0 through the 7th. In the 8th we had all these baserunners but still couldn't score, thanks partly to a batter's interference call. Then in the bottom, Oki imploded and after a really long inning, it was 5-0 A's, and that was your (and my) final. 3:30 game Tuesday.]

[Optimism update, 1:09 a.m.: In the last five games, our five starters have allowed 6 earned runs in 31 innings. Do that or something close all year and it'll be fun.]

Did you see that they went back on that and they called Ellsbury out by caught stealing, not by batter interference? They decided after that inning that the batter interference never happened but that Ellsbury was out by the throw.

I could have understood the batter interference call, but Ellsbury was safe by a mile.

Between that and the Anderson balk, last night's game was the reason we need instant replay in baseball.
I don't know why Oki is on the team this season. And nice to see Lackey pitch decently, but the Oakland ballpark very much favors pitchers.

Sox are announcing plans for the 100th anniversary of Fenway this morning.
D'oh! Once again used the wrong Google account.
