With Carl Crawford getting plunked, picked off and thrown out, and Sox fans chewing their fingernails off, this win might have been sweeter than the Sox-clubbing on Monday.
It really felt like it was out of the Rays 2011 master
computer plan — superior starting pitching, just enough top-shelf defense, and scratching out runs to win. Maybe there really are another 90 of these in the closet.
Joe liked David Price’s intensity and fire, but he sure seemed to be channeling too much Matt Garza with Jeff Nelson squeeing the strike zone all night. No way that’s going to be good for Price long term.
Anyone else feel like Jonny Damon was absolutely the guy the Rays wanted at bat with the bases loaded?
It’s only one game tomorrow, but it’s never too early to throw dirt on the Sox and get deep into their heads.
