So three days ago I was sure the Sox had turned a corner, by taking 2 out of 3 from the Yankees. Turns out even the Royals can take 2 out of 3 from the Yankees. So it's not so much that that the Sox are playing well again, it's more that the Yankees are stinking it up again. Four games above .500 -- awesome.
Thoughts on Shoppach coming in with the Sox down by 7? Obviously the callers on WEEI are going to have a field day, but that's hindsight. As much as I wish it had been Varitek coming in with the bases loaded, I don't know.
