It did waste a great outing by Dahmer. The double play to end the game was very much like a kick to the gut from someone wearing cleats. Watching Pedroia come out with a turned ankle was a solid punch to the face. We lost this fight, and it did hurt.... especially knowing that they had the chance to jump into first last night. At least no ground was lost. That's about all I've got for positives from last night; we didn't lose ground. I just grow increasingly tired of losing to Fetus. Can I call him Fetus any more? He's sporting a beard now, and doesn't exactly look like a child any more. They grow up so fast, don't they? I think I'll stick with the nickname, though. For old times' sake.
One of the reasons I can't get too worked up about this loss is that the Bruins and Lightning put on one hell of a show, but the B's came out with the win. So one Boston team goes home happy. Sure, I would have loved for the Sox to win this one, but.... meh. Beckett/Carmona tonight. Four years ago, this would have been one of those can't miss match-ups. Now? All I know is that I'm not going to miss it.
