Ending the first half on a high… um… higher note…
The laws of physics did not fail us. Um. Entirely.
Crisis averted. Thanks to a rally.
And this win feels much, much, much better than it should.
“It actually means nothing,” said Red Sox manager Terry Francona about the first half being in the books and what that book is all about. “When we’re done with the season, I’ll give you a better answer. I don’t think you’re ever content or satisfied with where you’re at until it’s over and you won. We always talk at the beginning of the year, getting into the grind. We’re into that, and we bailed ourselves out after the miserable start and we certainly have a long way to go — but we’re playing better.”
A miserable start.
And a MISERABLE NL road trip. MISERABLE is the word of the day, a word that even a rally victory can’t totally dissipate.
“We need to play better and get out of this interleague stuff and we’ll be fine,” Dustin Pedroia said.
Play… better. Wow. Tito! Why didn’t you think of that?
I am just ready for this day to be over.
Just got back to my office. At… oh… 1:53 a.m. On a FRIDAY. So. Yeah. My day’s still sucking.
So, if you want to rescue me, I’ll probably still be here by the time you make the drive from Boston. Bring cheese.
