bullpen blowup much?

all i can say is that the rays better not win tomorrow night (it'd be even better if they didn't win saturday or sunday, either...) I know we've gotten out of the 3-1 hole before (cripes, we've gotten out of a 3-0 hole), but this ain't lookin' too good. (hence the reason why i wore my alex jersey on top of my ellsbury shirt for sports day today)
oh well. could be worse.

*scoffs* aww, i wish i lived closer to the big K (that being kauffman stadium), or at least was in the vicinity on sept. 20th for the 'shirts off their backs' hooflah (scroll down to the bottom) 'cause then i would've had a chance to meet alex and get an autographed jersey. i'm bummed. (although, game-fresh jersey, game-fresh dirt and sweat... but still! what might've been an opportunity to meet one of my buddies!)

it's okay. at least the red sox bullpen didn't blow the game when they had the lead. as the mets season went on i got kinda used to it and yet it stung the most on the last of the season.

it's hard to get used to in the big spots (like the playoffs) and it also happened to the dodgers earlier this week.

yeah. bullpen blowups are one of the reasons why the postseason isn't made up of 1-game series.

i think last night's game was more of a bullpen blowup

yeah. a starting blowup for the sox, a bullpen blowup for the rays.
