Jonathan Papelbom blew a save against the Angels the other night and before you could say “Fore” our beloved Redsox were done. This is usually a great time of year for the Redsox, Bruins and Patriots and Celtics are all playing at once. Being a spoiled Boston fan I expected the anticipated NY /Boston showdown in the ALCS. The Angels had other plans.
All we can hope for now I suppose is that the Dodgers somehow win the NLCS and Manny goes Manny on the Yankee’s. It would be nice if the Angels took the Yankees out but we will just have to hope and wonder what if?
The Redsox offense was offensive in the Angels series and could not ammount anything against an Angels pitching staff that usually isn’t that good. The Redsox were not patient like in years past they were anxious. Confidence goes along way and our Sox seemed swaggerless this year.
We need a bat, Jason Bay is now a free agent so re-signing him is job numero uno. If he is hesitant to take the hometown discount however we have noone to blame but Theo Epstein. That idea that 3 old guys = 1 good young arm #failed. Let’s get a real free agent and lock up a real 5th starter for next year also.
I still believe in the Redsox however, see you in April.
