    • Drew

      I could give two shits if his elbow blows out and never pitches another day in his life.

    • V

      I don’t want his shoulder to explode. I just want it to constantly bark, and for him to blow 10 saves, pull a 4.5 ERA, etc.

      • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

        Agreed.

        I don’t want Papelbon to get injured.

    • Tom Zig

      The last time we lost the first 4 games of the season to them, we won the wild card.

      • Reggie C.

        That’s awesome.

        Lets spend another 400 million next offseason to maybe win the fucking division. Right?

        • Accent Shallow

          Isn’t it a little early to be freaking out like this?

          This game sucked. It hurt. And if it’s the difference between winning the division and not, or making the playoffs or not, it’ll kill me.

          But do we really think that this game means the Sox are a better team in the long haul? Really? That the Yankees are second class citizens in the division? Give me a break.

          • Reggie C.

            Is it early to freak out? Yeah. Probably. But is this an after game spillover thread? Yeah.

            Does this game mean the Sox are a better team in the long haul? No ONE game tells you this. But last week’s squaring off doesn’t inspire confidence.

            Tonight… the only good thing is Aceves showing swing and miss pitches and maybe … maybe Teix is gonna start hitting some singles and doubles and sustain a 2 homer outburst.

    Disappointing – BUT – All of these Yanks/BoSox games have been very exciting except game three at Fenway

    Looks like the Yankees can’t make lemonade from these lemons.

  • James

    We had the best umpires this game… NOT!!

  • Bob Stone

    Over the past four years the record between the Yanks and Sox is something like 51-51. The Yanks will come back and beat them.

  • pat

    Eh, considering our starter went 4 innings and sucked and theirs set a career K mark, not too bad.

    • Accent Shallow

      I think that makes it even more frustrating. Hughes was lousy, Lester was on, and the game was still close.

      • pat

        True true I just never really felt into it until that last inning, so it wasn’t one of those real bad emotional rollercoasters.

  • Smitt Dog

    I’m going to the game tomorrow and will be doing everything in my power to will an injury on Papelbon and Pedroia from the grandstand. Particulary Papelboner. That douchebag really grinds my gears. You just know he wears tight t-shirts with rhinestones and shit on them.

    Completely honestly, and without remorse, I honestly hope he dies in a firey plane crash.

    No I don’t care if you think I shouldn’t say that.

    • Bob Stone

      That’s a terrible thing to say but I do share your dislike of Paps

    Another game against the Red Sox where shit just unfortunately did not break our way. Honestly, I know it reads as annoyingly optimistic, but I’m not in any way upset over the four losses to Boston this season.

      I agree completely. They’ve been very exciting games and with a few breaks we could be 2-2 or 3-1
