Back in action

Pay no attention to the circumstances, Jeff made a return to the game yesterday.

What? The circumstances matter to you?

OK, fine. For most of the game the Angels trailed the Sox 3-4. But they threatened. And in the 9th inning Troy got a hit. But then he got thrown out attempting to steal 2nd. 1 out. Then AK struck out. 2 out. Then J. Molina was up. Jeff Pinch hit for him. Jeff hit a pop-up and was an easy out number 3. So we were swept. We just didn't have it. We couldn't compete. Our pitchers didn't bring their best "stuff". Our hitting was unproductive. And we were sorely lacking in magic.

Whenever I watched the games in this series, it seemed as though the Sox just had magic on their side. Things came together, they got breaks, they made plays that stopped our rallies cold. Did Disney (who would like to corner the market on any and all magic to be found in the world) keep the magic when they sold the team?
