Here I am, sitting in my living room watching this Sox game on ESPN, and the Yanks have blown a 4-0 lead. I can very clearly hear the crowd from the stadium cheer/chant “Where is Roger?” at an unbelievable volume from my couch. Now, I wasn’t actually at home during the back-to-back-to-back-to-back home run derby at Fenway earlier this season, but this is definitely the loudest it’s been here so far this season. Amazing.
Also, Andy Pettite clearly winced/screamed in pain after one of those last few pitches, and left the game straight into the clubhouse with the trainer. We watched out the window as Doug Mientkiewitcz left the park in the back of an ambulance yesterday headed for MGH. Now, I’m going to reserve comment about this particular game (there are still several innings left) But, as far as the season goes, could things possibly get any worse for the MFNYY?
