Jon Lester pitched very well, but unfortunately for Red Sox fans he just didn’t pitch as well as Tampa’s Matt Garza and so the Red Sox are home and the rays are on to the World Series.
Let’s face facts, the Rays were a better team, maybe just barely, but there much better health makes them a better shot to win it all than the Red Sox.
I still maintian that the Red Sox, considering their health woes, overacheived, exceeding realistic expectations.
So now what? what do you do with Varitek (you offer him about 3-4 mill a year for 2 years)? and another pitcher(Jake peavy, CC Sabathia)? and another power hitter? Big questions that need to be answered by Theo Epstein this off-season, an off season that seems to get shorter and shorter every year. We’ll be talking about the Red Sox in some form or fashion on a weekly basis. They are New England’s obesssion, and they will continue to be our obsession.
