"We’re getting into a situation where, at least with the open bases, we have some room to make some pitches. If we back him to a bind with Zobrist next, if you want to go all the way with the bases loaded, the guy’s thrown 40 pitches. That’s putting [Saito] in an unfair position." -- Terry Francona on his late night decision making

Fan Takes Late Night Loss in Stride: "Francona ought to be concerned about his job after tonight. It's easy to manage a rich and very talented team to two World Series. But, he can't manage to beat a team whose payroll is roughly $85 million less than his own EVER? Guys, this is about RESOURCES!!! I can't believe a team like the Sox would lose so frequently to a team with far less financial resources EVER! Frankly, John Henry needs to quit pouring so much time and money into his extracurriculars and focus on the business on WINNING BASEBALL GAMES, EVERY SINGLE GAME OF EVERY SINGLE YEAR! Nothing should stop him, or the Sox, in their pursuit of perfection every single season. Tonight was a disgrace." -- 8.5.09, Sox diehard 'J. Kerr'
