We Almost Won, But Didn't

Every other team in the division lost, and we lost 1-0 against one of the best pitchers in the game. Not that hard to move on from this one, although it woulda been nice if Salty had held on...or if AG's ball had just a little more juice in it. Oh well. This series can still be won.

A game where we score 0 is a good time to bring up the following: A lot of people act like the loss of Ellsbury/Crawford is meaningless, because our offense hasn't been a problem this year. Did these people ever think that with those guys, we would have not only won the games we've already won, but won a few more on top of it? Ellsbury was practically the MVP last year. When you lose a guy like that, you can never say for certain that your results would have been the same, even if the replacement is having an MVP year of his own. Because the injured guy could have been even better than that. Maybe in some of the games where we've been shut down, Ellsbury would have produced 2 runs and turned a loss into a win. We don't know what he would have done all this time he's been out, but to say he wouldn't have made a difference makes no sense to me.
