Ugly One Gets Away

What an awful game. Cleveland 13, Sox 6. Few losses are more aggravating for me than an extra-innings blowout. Especially an American League playoff game that's 34 hours long to begin with and ends with team fan whipping gnome Eric Gagne digging the hole that former fan favorite Trot Nixon fills in.

Oh yeah, and it takes place after one in the frigging morning.

I'm going to love watching Scott Boras try to sell teams on Eric Gagne this off-season.

Here's the Useless Countdown update after Game Two. Manny passed Jeter in Total Bases and Walks. moved into a tie with him in extra base hits, and tied Bernie for first on the all-time LCS HR list. Lofton tagged him a bit of Jeter's hide, as well, passing him on the singles list.

Red signifies a failure to pass Jeter or Bernie. Blue signifies moving into a tie. Green signifies a pass achieved in this series. Parenthetical indicates the stats accumulated Friday night in Game 1.
