We had a chance ...
... you know, there at the top of the 8th. David was up with 2 guys in scoring position. We could've come within striking distance. It would have been sweet, too, since Riske is the KC *ahem* closer. Now, we haven't got a chance. I just hope we don't widen the gapper by giving up any more runs.
And what was the deal with DeJesus trying to fake a diving catch? Is this back yard baseball?
Schilling just couldn't find his fastball. The game isn't over yet and I'll bet he's already huffed off to start blogging about it. It would be funny to see him with an Apple Notebook in the dugout, instead of the traditional pen and paper. Guaranteed he's super pissed, too, because he's never lost an opening day game.
Also, I didn't see it, but I heard that Pedroia pulled a wicked rookie move and tried to get 2 bases off of what was clearly a single. I thought the whole point of Spring Training was to get these goofy moves out of the way!
I guess the Red Sox have the night off tomorrow to think about how badly they sucked.
It's just as well. I've got laundry to do.
