    That was embarrassing....... This team didn't deserve to make the playoffs after that September.

    Yeah that's a good thing hah, I feel weird saying this, but the sox losing is almost a relief. At least this nightmare is finally over, I couldn't take it any more. Like you said, go pats, go bruins

    i can't remember the last time 2 teams in the same season had such epic september chokes as the braves and red sox

    how do you blow a 3-2 lead in baltimore with the star closer, and 2 outs none on , knowing you need the win to at least force a playoff


    and it's like the yanks hate you guys so much, they prolonged the game, until they knew your outcome....

    2006: Pats blow 21-3 halftime lead in AFC Championship game.
    2007: Pats blow SB42 and 19-0 season.
    2010: Bruins blow 3-0 Eastern Conference Finals lead.
    2010: Celtics blow 13 point second-half lead in game 7 of NBA Finals.
    2011: Red Sox blow 9 game Wild Card lead with 24 games remaining in season.

    For all the amazing success Boston sports teams have had, we've also had some legendary ugly chokes recently.

    Yeah this one stings, no doubt about it, honestly though, I think pap has to go....and if Lackey is on our staff next year I will tear someone a new one....It is kind of comforting to know that the braves went down just as hard as we did LOL, anyways I won't be losing sleep tonight, just a game, sox will come back with a vengeance next year.

    I just said the same thing, thank God this September nightmare is over and we can concentrate on the Pats.

    Sept 1st the Sox and the Braves both had 9 game leads in the WC, both blew em tonight, who do you think will get the headlines for biggest choke job ever?

    2011 demonstrated that the strengths of the Red Sox were not enough to cover for the many and varied faults of the Red Sox.

    2012 HAS to be all about pitching. I don't care for offense I want to see pitching, pitching, pitching and more pitching.

    Sox were 77-0 when leading after 8 innings, you guessed it, until tonight.

    Last year's team of plug-in players won 89 games. This year's power stack of superstars? ONE more game - 90.

    Crawford should have caught that ball...

    Man, I was actually floating around 2 hrs ago saying the Sox would prove them all wrong when we were up and Tampa was down 7-0.

    Francoma couldn't carry Joe Maddon's spare eyeglass case.

    they're going to need to rebuild the rotation and pen, right?

    At least tampa will have to trade all their good players cuz they can't afford to keep them, I would give anything to see longoria in a sox jersey, dude is a monster.

    Money can't buy you championships, Theo ! Have fun with 3 yrs of John SLackey at 80million and 7 or 8 or 9 or whatever # years of Carl Croakford at 150 million, while you still paying Millions for Dice-IR, Julio Lugo, Edgar Rent-a-wreck

    1978-1986-2011.......lol

    Tito Santana will be fired, and Theodore will be moving onto GM of the loser cubs.

    Well we were spared the spectacle of seeing them embarrassed in the playoffs by the Rangers.
