Focusing on positives

Yes, the 11 game win streak came to an end last night in Cleveland. Not only was it a loss, it was an ugly loss. The Sox gave up 4 unearned runs and left 24 men on base. Still, it was tied in the bottom of the ninth, and what looked like a sure out to send the game into extra innings turned into a horrible error by Javy Lopez which allowed the game winning run to score. 9-8

So, we start fresh tonight. Hey, you didn't really expect them to finish out the season undefeated, did you? As one writer said recently, each season you can expect to win 50 and lose 50. It's the other 62 that are key to the season. Last night may have been one of those 62 squeakers, and we came out on the losing end. Meh.

In the meantime, Mike Lowell was named AL Player of the Week on Monday. Yeah Mikey! He seems to be getting stronger with each game, and that bodes well for the Red Sox.

All positive here!
