"We lost to a team that's not better than us," growled pitcher John Lackey, who gave up two runs and seven hits in seven innings. "We are a better team than they are. The last two days, we shouldn't have given up anything."
Go buy a lip.

I don't have any real problems with the LAAA, but there is something rewarding about observing the homeward bound opponent whining about how they are really the better team. Maybe they should all get together for a tantrum dance.

Back to the game, I was initially ticked at Francona for not bringing Lester back out for the 8th until I heard him comment that Lester looked like he was mentally done when he came off the mound after the 7th.
It's impossible to rip Tito for acting on exactly what I've ripped Grady since 03 for ignoring.

Luckily nobody did that.
There's a lot of irrational stupidity in game threads but, seriously, anyone twisting Francona's words around to suggest he calling calling out Lester transcends stupidity

All in all, a perfect way to kick off the 2008 playoffs.

Those photos are from a celebration last year.
Sorry about that. I recognized the downstairs of "Game On" and the resulting search produced the link. I failed to notice that they were from last year (although Buchholz's attendence should have been a good hint). Looks like it was fun though.
