Enjoy ’em when you can
2010 is shaping up to be the kind of season that will require us Red Sox fans to take our satisfactions in small doses. Like last night’s comeback win against the Yankees and Mariano Rivera. But even this small victory was marred by the poor pitching of Josh Beckett, he of the big new contract, and two errors by our run-prevention defense (both by Marco Scutaro).
And, it didn’t get them any closer to first place, or any closer to third place. And it didn’t erase the pain of the previous day’s gacking loss to the Skankees or Saturday’s disaster in Detroit. No, it was just a nice win against a better team. We’ll take ’em when we get ’em.
