Goodnight Moon

Game 151 - Red Sox

Rays 2, Red Sox 1
Record: 89-62

Deja vu all over again, as Josh Beckett pitches brilliantly and the Sox fail to plate more than a single run before the bullpen allows the game-winner. It's even less cute this time.

Which leaves us with, gulp, Tim Wakefield taking the ball in a game that effectively decides whether the Sox have a chance to win the division. It's the ultimate test of trust for a fan - can't control a damn thing, so fall back into the void and hope that someone catches you.

Or, alternatively, rant and pout like a nap-deprived 4 year-old. I think you know which way I'll lean this evening.
