Dismantled At The Cell

Disappointment. That??s the best word I can think of to describe our Boston Red Sox laying a collective egg at the Cell today. Not only did they look completely uninterested and lazy, but apparently Matt Clement was joking around with David Wells on the bench after being slapped around for six runs in two innings. This is playoff time, now is when you get serious. Enough horsing around and pretending like this doesn??t mean anything.

It was just frustrating to follow a team the entire season, watch every game, go through the ups and downs, then let it all culminate in clinching a playoff berth and soiling ourselves on the field. That was pathetic.
