I think the Sox are going to get croaked early.
Bad Karma Team. Great run, but ended badly and about to get worse.
Can you imagine giving up a walk off, grand-slam in New York, to lose a game and immediately walking into your locker room and CELEBRATING with Champagne? WTF is that?
I were managing the Red Sox, here is what would have happened. Once a 2 runners reached base for NY in the 9th, I would have called the locker room staff to say that there will be no celebration until I give the go ahead. Then, when the Sox lost, I would have canceled the celebration altogether.
Instead, we would have had a team meeting to communicate my disappointment in losing a game, on a walk off grand slam. Good teams don't blow 3 runs leads in the 9th. This is a disaster for a playoff team because you don't 161 games to make up one bad loss.
Backing their way into the playoffs in mind mind DOES NOT COUNT> There will be no celebration and no tee shirts until they EARN the title. As far as I am concerned the magic number is ONE and they only way they get into the playoffs is if they win.
but no, the Red Sox lost a three run lead and the game with one swing of the bat and then went into their locker room to celebrate. MF'ing Stupid.
Then, Jackie Bradley Jr. is interviewed on the field. He is exuberant! What is he looking forward to most about the playoffs? Watching the RUN that Big Papi will put on. WRONG ANSWER JACK ASS! The right answer is "competing in the playoffs for the first time and earning a first win".
With the exception of Ortiz. Boegarts, and Pedroia... they Red Sox have no post season experience. Most are first year participants. The rest of the veterans have never worn a Red Sox uniform in the playoffs. Price has never won a post-season game.
Now, they are lined up for a 4 Game Sloppy Wet Farewell Kiss to David Ortiz. There will be singing, speeches, gifts, hugs, kisses, video montages, midgets riding motor cycles, cartwheels, and best wishes from the President.
By the time the playoffs roll around for these clowns, they won't know what hit them when the games begin and the competition gets tough.
I hope I am wrong, but everything is lining the wrong way and I doubt they will regain the hunger.
