I don't mind losses like these. I mind the losses where the team goes into a shell and gives up at bats, waiting to get off the field ASAP.
Agree with this post. The only thing I am really concerned about after last night is Quintana - why he couldn't compose himself and limit the damage. Seemed like things went off the rails dramatically and with no warning. That's not good. Like others said, if he was able to hold it together just a a little bit better, that game ends differently.

That's an interesting thought. He sure started Flowers off with a killer curve after I figured he had lost control of the pitch. That set up the whole at bat. Hawk said the temp was 32 degrees during that at bat. Never saw a baseball game played in that kind of weather before.

That was the key to the entire inning. If Wilhelmsen doesn't get that curve over for a strike, he likely has to try to locate fastballs against Flowers, who had a good chance to square one up if he knows it's coming. Wilhelmsen was only able to catch Flowers flat-footed on the last strike because of that first strike curve. Clutch pitching beat a locked-in hitter. It happens.

I'm with the others who are not terribly upset with this loss. The team played well, with the exception of Quintana and Jones, but Seattle played just a little bit better. As long as the team plays like professionals and we at least stay within striking distance of Detroit well into June, I'll take it as it comes.

The Sox are in first place in the ALC! No, wait, make that last place.
