8th...what could have been...

8th inning - Another chance that goes by the wayside....

Red Sox: 1st and E6 chased Garza. Single by Coco into the hole that looked so inviting on TV to me to shoot a ball through. Then Dustin pop'd out to left. 1 Out. David Ortiz up.....Wheeler out. JP Howell in. This is the move that everyone talked about in Game 5....and it worked. Papi bounced to 2nd but Coco, if he slid directly into the bag, might have beaten the throw if he had slid into the bag straight. He was out instead....Bradford in. 1st and 3rd - 2 outs. It was now or never - and it was up to Youk.....and he walked. Rookie David Price comes in to face JD Drew....ok FLASHBACK: JD Drew, bases load - Game 6 of the ALCS last year - Grand Slam....Baseball is crazy...but this crazy to repeat like that?.......Price is in a HUGE SPOT - Rookie - Bases Jacked.....Drew strikes out on a check swing that went too far..

Wasn't it called a strike because he went around?

What inning did Matt "turn off the tv" on his favorite team of all time?
