A Badge of Shame

You know you're having a rough season when a simple single gets your face on a badge.

With Mark Ellis's .215 average and .250 OBP, a single hit was an achievement. And my display cases continues its long walk to Sax-level bloat.

Badge or not, it was still fun watching the Red Sox resemble their old Curse of the Bambino selves. Giving up four runs in the ninth, most of them unearned. Two ejections, including one where Papelbon yelled at the ump after getting a called strike! Passed ball that almost gave the As the lead. Sigh.. how I miss ye olde Buckner-themed Sox.
