Felger & Massarotti were joined by Jermaine Wiggins and the guys opened the day discussing last nights Red Sox 6-3 loss to the Orioles in Baltimore. With last nights loss and the Rays beating the Yankees, there is now a tie for the Wild Card between the Sox and Rays.
After the recent performances of the Red Sox, should we be surprised that there is now a tie for the Wild Card? Did last night’s loss really show us what kind of team this is? Can the Sox win the next two while Tampa loses one? If the Sox make it a one-game playoff on Thursday in Tampa Bay, do they have a shot?
Should Jacoby Ellsbury have come up with that ball in center? If Johnny Damon was here, would he have come up with that ball?
Do the Red Sox have an ace in their rotation? Can they be successful without an ace? What has changed with Josh Beckett? How much of a diva is Beckett? Where is Beckett’s ace mentality?
