Calm down, people. It's certainly not like we thought that the Sox wouldn't lose another game this season. Or was it?

It's one game, one loss. Still only 4.5 back w/ 12 games remaining against the leader. A team that we know we are better than.

On the plus, maybe JM will really stop going with Koch in closing situations.

On the minus, we shoulda put up more runs against the devil dogs.

All will be better after tonight's win...

Kilroy, I couldn't have said it better myself.

Ditto. Some of us really need to chill out. I feel 100-times better about upgrading center field, second base, and the top of our anemic batting order than I feel worse about one stupid blown save.

Agree with everything here. This was one game. The Sox should have won, yes. Botch blew it, the Sox sound like they are addressing the weakness at closer that needs correcting.

We are 4 1/2 back, we still have a bunch of games against the teams in front of us, plus the next 20 against the bottom feeders of the league.

You can't win them all. Just keep winning series. Today's and tomorrow's games against TB are very winnable. Zambrano is the type of pitcher that gives the Sox fits - effectively wild.

Relax. If they get swept by Tampa - I'll start to panic.
