Rain Out Revelations
Though the Yankees and Orioles got rained out yesterday the evening was still packed with AL East action as the Red Sox and Rays got their game in. It was Jon Lester vs. David Price and both lefties were dealing, but the main surprise is that the Red Sox took another loss dropping to 2-9 on the season. Now I still hold that its way too early to count any team out, well, Kansas City and Pittsburgh are out, but otherwise its too early to count any real team out. But the Sox are digging themselves in quite the hole, and the strange thing is that they're not a bad team. Eventually this will turn around, but for now its like watching a glorious train wreck. It makes me think what it would have done to Red Sox nation had the Yankees actually won the series. We weren't going to win that night against Beckett, he was just too good, but you kind of wish Hughes had shown up with a bit more on Friday. But either way, a sweep by the Rays could send the Sox into panic mode. Eventually all the pieces will start clicking, but for now its kind of fun to watch.
