Pap's Perfection? POOF!

We knew it was going to happen sooner or later. After all, he's human. But this game was lost well before Jonathon Papelbon shuffled to the mound. Josh Beckett-101 pitches in 5 innings. Clearly he's having problems with location. In fact, the Red Sox have been a sub .500 club ever since their 6-1 start in the first week or so of April. Is this what we have to look forward to? Middle of the pack mediocrity? Only time will tell. But right now the club is not playing well. And without their two sharpsooters pitching near-perfection baseball, things look gloomy. But for Pap, this is, as he put it, just a minor bump in the road. And I believe him.

It is just a bump for Pap.
I think it's because it wasn't a save situation.
Hopefully there'll be some redemption for them all tonight.
No more wasted opportunities!

No pitcher was safe last night. As much as the cold and rain is supposed to be bad for hitters (with a final of 7-6, I'm not sure how anyone can say that!), it must be worse for the pitchers in terms of getting the proper grip and controlling the release.

Pap still rules. He'll be back with a vengeance at the next opportunity.
