Because stranger things have happened

I didn't watch the end of the game because I had to go to a meeting (with a Boston fan no less!)

A teeny tiny whisper in my brain said "don't leave, who knows what might happen!"

But I argued with the whisper and thought "yeah, Alfie Amezaga might just hit a home run and start a rally. Whatever, I'm leaving."

Turns out, there is a reason that games are nine innings and not seven. Inevitability can only be determined after the fact. Still no win, but it was pretty cool that the A-team's B-players forced the Sox to bring out their closer.

As for Alfie. He was due. He was majorly due. He could hit 2 more slams just like it and *still* be due.

It was reported during the telecast that Jeff took swings during practice and looked good, and would have been available to pinch hit last night if it was warranted.
