Co-Co Comeback

Great game yesterday. I don't have much time to blog about it, except to say that it was good to see Cora and Coco play key roles in the game. The comeback win gives the Sox some good momentum going into this weekend's series against the Yankees.

The Yankees also had a comeback win last night, thanks in part to a walk-off home run from A-Rod, but, more crucially, to some amazingly stubborn managing by Cleveland's Eric Wedge. Jere suggests that Wedge was asleep in the bottom of the ninth, as he left Borowski in to give up six earned runs in 2/3 of an inning. I yelled as loud as I could to try to wake him up, but to no avail. He was determined to turn snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, and his plan worked. Nice job, Eric.
