Sox Baiting

Some fodder for Red Sox Nation (I'm looking at you, A.W.):

When you give up 7+ runs a game, that's on your pitching staff. But when you give up 7 runs in an inning, twice, isn't that on the manager? You can't blame a manager if his team gives up, say, 4 runs at a time. But isn't his job to keep a firm enough grasp on the game, the opposing lineup, and his bullpen, to be able to hold keep the bleeding from becoming a hemorrhage? Particularly in the playoffs?

Yeah, Francona blew it by not yanking Wake earlier. Somewhere, Grady Little is laughing from grave.

Of course, this will all be academic after the Sox win the Series and go on to give the Rockies a nice kick in the ass.
