Shaughnessy: Rays Bring Sox and Fans Down to Earth

"The Rays completely took the crowd out of the game. The Fenway unfaithful booed captain Varitek when he popped up to end the fourth, but for most of the night the ancient yard sounded like the quiet car on the Acela. In the ninth, Fenway looked like Gillette Stadium three weeks ago when the Dolphins went ahead, 38-13. Talk about your alternative universes." -- 10.13.08, Dan Shaughnessy, Boston Globe
