Pedroia was 0-9 and left 11 men on base. Talk about a crappy night for him.

Deserved or not they can't take that win away. Good job I guess.

The score doesn't reflect the pathetic offense the Sox produced this game.

Sox will be in the playoffs either as the division winner or as a wild card team. They are 6 games up for the 1st wild card spot and 9 games up for the 2nd. It will be what it will be.

Wild Card is not acceptable.  WE NEED TO WIN SOMETHING THIS YEAR!!!!!!!!!!  Besides, unless there is a complete reversal of the way the team plays vs some of the other teams in the league we are not going to go very far in the playoffs so an AL East Title gives us something  that we accomplished this season.  Anyway, that's my take on it.

Seven runs in the 15th!
What were they waiting for?
Not important, they won.
We're still three ahead of NY.

It's been a while to have to sweat this much to hold onto a 3 game lead....ugh ::)

Thank you Rays, for spotting us 6 unearned runs.

Happy the Sox won.  BUT,  It seems the Sox only score when the other team makes repeated errors or other defensive lapses.

Well we seem to take advantage of those opponents mistakes and that is one good thing to say about this team of ours, but it would be swell if the team could start hitting earlier and put some balls in the seats.  Hear me Mookie, Jackie, Benny, Mitch and the rest of you?

AGREE, also, looks like teams are going/aggressive in the first inning knowing that Sale is always around the plate and it's better to get the bat on the ball than get boxed in on the count....
