Is This the End?

End Game?

Goodbye Guys?

Is this the end?
Idiot friends
Is this the end?
With just one prize, the end

Of our elaborate plans, the end
Of everything that stands, the end
No comeback or surprise, the end
We'll never see some of our guys...again

Can you picture what will be
If South Side does the sweep
Desperately in need...of some...knuckled hand
In a...desperate land

Lost in a Boston...wilderness of pain
And all the children wait in vain
All the children wait in vain
Waiting for the autumn pain, yeah

"There is doubt in the 2005 Red Sox. You can see it in their eyes and hear it in their voices. The Sox said all of the right things, at least publicly, following their Game 2 loss Wednesday night in Chicago to the White Sox. They said them again yesterday at Fenway Park. But when the lights are off and the notebooks are closed, they have the same feelings and observations about this team that you do.

"They wonder if they are good enough.

"'Maybe,' one Sox player said in the aftermath of Wednesday's defeat, 'it's just not meant to be.'" -- 10.7, Tony Massarotti, Boston Herald

"Our problem has always been our pitching. The three years I've been here, we've always hit well. The question is how our pitching is going to be. It's not news that letting Pedro and D-Lowe go, everyone was questioning how our pitching was going to be. When you don't know what to expect from the starting pitching, it's a little crazy." -- 10.7, David Ortiz, ProJo

Goodbye Columbus?
