"The important thing is for us to get our house in order, be healthy, and try to get everybody at-bats. But not too many." -- 9.26.08, Terry Francona dampening the division hopes of the Nation
No Risk, No Reward ...
"Shame on you, Boston Red Sox. Yeah, you're in the playoffs...but as the wild card. You're the defending World Series champions, for Yaz's sake, and you've conceded your division title to the Tampa Bay Devil Rays of baseball--the Tampa Bay Rays! As both a Red Sox fan and a fan of Major League Baseball as a whole, I find this outcome unacceptable. You have one chance to set things right, Red Sox, and you've got one month in which to do so." -- 9.26.08, Metroville, Darkness Falls Upon AL East
