Come On

Again we're mere outs from first place and again more bullcrap happens. Real games start October 1. We can beat anybody.

What we saw last night was a confirmation that Tampa Bay has a much stronger, deeper bullpen than the Sox do at this point. That's certainly a major issue at this point.

Andy Sonnenstine, on the other hand...he's doing it with smoke and mirrors. I think the Sox will finally handle him in the playoffs. If we make it to the 2nd round, that is.
BUT! They were facing a lineup without Drew or Bay, and Mike Lowell should be in a wheelchair.
See, I don't buy the Drew/Bay excuse. The Sox lineup still featured Pedroia/Papi/Youks/Lowrie, and I think was still just as strong as (if not stronger than) the Rays' lineup even with the missing pieces.

I think we have to concede that Howell/Balfour/Wheeler/Bradford have been very good, and that the 'better bullpen' nod goes to the Devil Dogs.
