Finder Of Lost Leads (Sort of)

EDITOR'S NOTE: The following update is certified vituperation-free by the Red Sox Starting Pitcher Sensitivity Institute.

The Red Sox, as a collective unit, lost two separate leads tonight on the way to a disappointing 9-6 defeat at the hands of the excellent Cleveland Indians. It looked like the Red Sox might overcome the pesky Tribe, when they took 1-0 and 3-1 leads. But, son of a gun, some tough luck 400-foot fly balls left Fenway and—suddenly—the home team was behind. Golly, gee!

Well, you can't blame starting pitching for everything. Maybe next time, our starter will do a whole lot better. In fact, I'm sure of it. Group hug?
