Thursday morning in the Boston Globe, everyone's favorite Red Sox columnist writes:
This feels like revenge for 2004 and 2007. It is as if the baseball gods are punishing Red Sox Nation for hubris and arrogance and good times that seemed so good, so good, so good.
About 12 hours earlier, though, Dan Shaughnessy was singing a very different tune during the Red Sox rain delay on Wednesday's NESN broadcast.
Just when you thought this story couldn't get any better...
"The Rays are not going to win tonight. The one thing that we have eliminated tonight is that the Red Sox season is not going to end tonight. They live to play another day. ... The worst thing that could happen would be to have to play that game in Tampa tomorrow... But the Rays are not going to come back from 7-0 with an inning-and-a-half to go."
Wait, so what was that he was saying about hubris and arrogance punishing the Red Sox?
So good, so good, so good.
