God we hope not.
I tweeted that right after the Red Sox lost 4-1 to the Angels, putting them down 0-2 in the American League Division Series.
The Red Sox Nation loves and respects NESN play-by-play announcer Don Orsillo, but was this really the worst mistake ever having him announce the Red Sox-Angels series on TBS instead of the Yankees-Twins or one of the National League series?
It has to kill him being neutral and so far he's been forced to show more excitement towards the Angels.
Now Boston finds itself in an 0-2 hole with the series heading back to Fenway.
The matter of the fact is, the Sox bats need to wake up. Scoring two runs in the first two games isn't going to win games unless the pitching is absolutely flawless.
Kevin Youkilis finally broke out of his slump in the top of the ninth inning. Maybe this is the hope lingering?
And who's shoulders is this all resting on come Sunday?
Lets see what happens.
