Baltimore has a 5-0 lead with 1 out nobody on in the 9th. Guthrie is lights out. Then Crisp reaches on an error and Guthrie pulled....Boston wins 6-5.

Hi, Fens. If that is an attempt to make me feel better, it falls a bit short.

In case you were fortunate enough to not see today's Sox/KC game, but are feeling masochistic, check out my recap. I watched EVERY LAST PITCH and somehow managed to not kick in the TV screen or smash my banjo. (Yet.)

I guess you will be rooting for Boston the next 4 days as the Kitties come to Fenway

Uh Fen, we're Chicago White Sox fans, not Los Angeles White Sox fans.

Along the same lines, Joe Borowski came in to protect a 7-5 lead in Oakland today. After retiring the first two, he gave up a single, home run and two more singles before Cleveland decided it was time to yank the closer. Cabreara's second pitch was a game-ending home run.

I know Aardsma did something similar in Detroit, but Borowski is the go-to closer on the Indians' staff.

Not that we haven't been saying he had such explosive abilities in him.

I stayed for all 9 innings of today's 11-1 disaster. I never leave games early. I paid good money for the ticket so I'm going to get as much out of it was possible, even if it's painful to watch.

There are some rumblings out of Baltimore that this game could have cost Sam Perlozzo his job.

Just heard on The Herd's spanning the globe segment that some Boston guy is reporting that Beckett's finger injury isn't a blister, but an avulsion (http://www2.merriam-webster.com/cgi-bin/mwmednlm?book=Medical&va=avulsion) . I remember seeing somewhere before the start of the season that Beckett takes some kind of medication due to a skin condition.

I have no doubt that he'll miss time if only because I have him on my dynasty team that includes Pedro, Carpenter, Liriano & El Duque who are all on the DL. I wish it were just a blister.

EDIT: well, after reading the story below, they're relieved that it isn't a blister. I would've thought that an avulsion would be more serious. For Beckett's sake, I hope he can bounce back right away because he's having a great season so far.

I was standing on the concourse by the gift shop during Buehrle's no-hitter and people were actually leaving after the Sox batted in the 8th. Morons.

I worked for a guy who always left early, even in close games. This was bad for me because we went to games together -- and he was my boss.

I never leave games early. I've been to a lot of baseball games, but no matter how many I go to, there is a chance I'll see something I've never seen before. A few years ago, I heard Art Kusnyer say he had seen a triple play without anybody hitting the ball. I couldn't conceive of such a thing, but a few months later, I read that it happened in a Phillies game.

Granted, with the Sox down by 10 with 2 out and none on in the bottom of the ninth, you aren't going to see a triple play. The Sox would have to a major league record -- which the 106-loss 1970 White Sox share -- to win it in 9. They would have to break a 106-year-old record set by the Indians just to tie the game in that situation. It's not going to happen. It didn't happen.

But if it did happen, I want to have been there.

The price is a little bit of my time. I've already made the investment of going to the ballpark.
