That's my profound statement of the day.
Winning is awesome.
That's my second profound statement (and why I get paid the big philosophy bucks.)
After dropping 6 straight one-run games, you'd figure the coin would flip the other way (i.e. theyze was dueze), and now the Sox have won 2 straight by the smallest of margins.
But these can be the biggest of victories, and citing the law of averages just doesn't capture how fun it is to come back and win.
Winning is fun. (Now I'm a Pedroia-esque 3-3)
And with Manny taking charge with go-ahead and tying RBIs in the 8th inning of consecutive games, he's finally shoving back against the bullying slump that comped him a great seat from which to watch his teammates try to do his job.
With morale high after cutting the deficit to 5-3 in the 8th, and with Pedroia on 2nd, Manny tagged the first pitch from Guerrier like he wanted to study its behavior.
But I don't think this one's coming back.
