Rantings and ravings from an admitted fan (as in fanatic!) of the Boston Red Sox. Updated only occasionally, but with my take on recent developments in Red Sox Nation. Updated more frequently during the end of the regular season and playoffs (hopefully).

At least we got a safety...

OK, so as beginnings to the post-season go, this was not what you would call auspicious. 14-2 loss to the White Sox. The Pale Hose were clearly jacked for the start of the postseason, and they jumped on Matt Clement for five runs in the first and cruised home.

But if 2004 proved anything, it is that one game (or more???) does not a series make. Sure, this is a short series, and the Red Sox don't have much time to screw around, but they basically lost one game at the opposing teams' ballpark, no matter what the score. They can steal one tonight (with Boomer on the mound, who knows?) and go back to Fenway needing to win two home games to take the series. We're ok.

That being said, yesterday's game was so annoying in so many ways, I just had to make a list. So herewith, I present my "Top 10 Annoying Things About Game 1," brought to you by the good folks at Foxwoods Resort & Casino.

10. The ESPN Announcers (I usually love Chris Berman, but hate the 3-person booth)
9. The 5-run first inning
8. Mike Piazza's tie
7. The trendiness of the White Sox. (Listen, we all "get it," ok. The White Sox play small ball, Ozzie Guillen is a great coach with a great staff, yada yada yada. Enough already!).
6. Comparisons of the 2005 White Sox to the 2004 Red Sox. Sorry, no sale. The 2004 Red Sox were a unique band of idiots. Come up with another comparison, because I'm not seeing that from this group of Pale Hose.
5. Mike Piazza's tie (still)
4. Matt Clement
3. The bullpen
2. When Guillen elected not to go for 2 after the 2nd touchdown. I thought that really could have turned things around.
1. The Yankees won. That just put a cherry on the ice cream sundae that was my day.

But like I keep telling myself today, it's just one game. We've still got a pulse. Let's just steal one tonight.
