Close, but no cigar

I'm hoping that the historical rivalry will jump-start the Red Sox for the game against the Yankees tomorrow, because they sure as hell had a flat battery today against the Devil Rays. Back-to-back homers from Lowell and Wily Mo in the ninth made it interesting, but not interesting enough, and the Sox finished up on the wrong end of a 5-4 scoreline.

Yankees tomorrow, and the great "should we boo Damon or should we cheer him?" debate. I really don't care what we do - boo, cheer, roll out the red carpet, light fireworks, bring in champagne and naked cheerleaders, whatever - as long as we win the ballgame.
