Even with the rout, I'm not buying the Red Sox yet
I love a nice blowout. A game where the Sox can pitch well, hit well and pad their stats. It is good for morale and good for me when I am raising my kids to not be staring at a computer screen to see how the Sox did.
A 10-1 final is nice. 8 innings, no earned runs for Buchholz is great. 2 homers for Hall is fantastic.
But forgive me if I am not on the "Sox are back in it" bandwagon.
If the Rangers didn't choke against the Yankees tonight, I'd be listening. But the Sox are still 4 games out in the loss column behind the Rays... and Tampa just has so much talent that making up the 4 games might be a chore.
If the Sox get to within 2... I'll get excited. Instead I am happy that they are winning and are on pace to win about 93 games.
