I would prefer the Red Sox not be a losing team, but I don't particularly mind losing to the Rays. I like the way that team has been constructed, and have enormous respect for their ability to develop pitching. If they won the WS, it wouldn't bother me the way a win for the NYY would.

That said, Geaux, Sox!

My dislike for the Rays has gine down many levels since Maddon left.

I just hate that they play the Sox like it’s Game 7 of the WS sometimes.

I kind of respect the Rays pulling success out of a dog poop bag, but that stadium is an abomination and it’s not clear that they would have fans in a good stadium even. I hope this new Nashville group gets them. Dombrowski and that team would be interesting.

Tom Caron is not going to be on the entire broadcast tonight is he? Sorry but his voice is like fingernails on a chalkboard for me. Gonna have to go with the Rays broadcast.

His voice is not good for broadcast media, that's for sure. But I'm always happy to have Eck And Remy, and a break from DOB is nice.

It's terrible.

And so is he.

I'd rather listen to a creaky screen door open and close for two and a half hours than this guy...................

so that's the second weird play that should be 100% routine for Arroyo already. Downs can't be ready soon enough.

Yeah, but no "off the green" or "all filled up" or "dead away center" or "player y LOVES hitting against team z" based on stats from 2 seasons ago. But I admit, I hate DOB's work.

100 plus years of history made and they are talking to some random woman about her dragonfruit iced tea. Fucking lame

It's funny to hear someone with no accent whatsoever talking about Dorchester and lobster boats.
