Once again, everything—and we mean everything—has a Red Sox gestalt. Even the guys that beat us these days are somehow connected to The Carmine Hose. So it was tonight as ex-Red Sox utility guy Danny Valencia clouted a seventh-inning, pinch-hit three-run homer to bury Boston, 5-2. Valencia played all of 10 games with the Red Sox, and hit a robust .143. Overworked reliever Junichi Tazawa offered up the Valencia blast. So, The Valentine Magic Number is stuck at 12 with just 29 to play. You do the math.
