So, yes, I was ready to tar and feather Bobby Jenks yesterday. Â Not just for tying up the game but for blowing Tim Wakefield’s opportunity at a win. Â I also had some choice words for Tito when he took Wake out of the game for Jenks. Â But all of that fell quietly away while I watched Carl Crawford get that game-winning hit.
To see Crawford get his first post-game pile on there on Fenway’s grass is exactly what I’ve been looking for. Â It took an entire month, but I finally got my “moment” (okay we all did!). Â Most importantly, the Sox salvaged a win in this series and are starting the month of May off on the right foot.
I’ll be at Fenway tomorrow night with friends I haven’t been to a game with in quite a while. Â That will be fun in itself. Â Jon Lester throwing a perfect game (okay just another no-hitter) would be a cherry on that sundae!
