I hear you Papi

This picture says it all...

There were a few points today that I thought "Man... it's going to fall into place for the Sox!"

Dice-K wiggling out of potential Yankee rallies while matching Sabathia zero for zero.
No inning better than loading the bases with nobody out and having A-Rod dribble a ball about 3 feet for a spectacular out by Victor Martinez.

And seeing Brett Gardner getting caught in a potential rally killing run down made me think "Oooo. This could end well."

Then Chris Woodward dropped the ball... literally.
And I stopped watching the game.

A great effort for Daisuke blown...
And after an 8 game head start the Sox might not even win the season series?

You are DAMN RIGHT I am grinding my teeth!
