I didnt watch the game so yes it is different. But what happened to Rios happens a lot when teams are in this situation. Some stay longer on the DL, some get in the buffet line twice, some stay out later, some take less batting practice, some watch less film etc. The Sox just havent been in this situation for awhile, it happens to all at one time or another.
