Season is winding down

Until late last night, it was a great weekend for Baseball.  The Sox vs the Yankees at Yankee Stadium and we took the first two games easily.  Then last night that all changed.  When I went to sleep we were winning.   When I woke this morining and found out the score I felt sick.  But after thinking about it, it’s okay, it really was a stretch to think they could pull off the Wild Card this late in the Season.  And two wins against the Yankees in their Stadium, well that was just unbelievable! And beautiful to watch.

The Red Sox [team stats] have nothing to be ashamed of.

It was a tough year with injuries, and the rookies put in a lot of time.  Some came through with flying colors.

We all wish it would have turned out differently, but they certainly make it interesting.

Mike Lowell is retiring after this Season, and I thought Friday night he was on his way to the hospital.  Getting hit in the face is no way to end your career.

I’m sad. I’m very sad today.

Seriously,
The way this Red Sox team stuck in the thick of it until now just shows the heart and determination of that squad. Injuries and some inconsistencies they did not expect kept trying to drown them, but they refused to stop fighting the good fight.
Boston must be extremely proud of the way they played this season even though the end result was not the desired one. One thing was certain the whole season,no matter what part had to be replaced or repaired over the season, the Red Sox heart was always beating strong.
