When your team has lost a few games and everyone is starting to get nervous and wondering if you are going to collapse, there's nothing more refreshing than a series against Tampa Bay.
Suddenly Tim Wakefield and Jon Lester look like Cy Young contenders, Eric Gagne strikes out the side without letting up a run and gets the win because of a great bottom of the 9th rally!
And that lead expands a game.
It's like going to a spa.
And the Red Sox play the Rays 10 more times, starting tonight when Dice-K goes after someone named Andy Sonnanstine.
I am sure the Sonnanstine family is proud of him. (Watch him throw a no hitter.)
Devil Rays fans, I admire you... both of you.
