Red Sox fans, from a Grantland piece: "After three seasons, Rangers owner Tom Hicks had apparently grown tired of Rodriguez’s consistent excellence, and decided it was time to trade him.7 The Red Sox, who had just lost Game 7 of the ALCS to the Yankees on Aaron Boone’s 11th-inning homer in the Grady Little game, and who were in the process of trading for Curt Schilling in their ongoing game of nuclear proliferation with the Yankees, were interested. And so was Rodriguez. A deal was reached, and all sides were amenable: The Rangers would trade Rodriguez to Boston in exchange for Manny Ramirez and a prospect named Jon Lester. The Red Sox would then trade incumbent shortstop Nomar Garciaparra to the White Sox for Magglio Ordonez and a prospect named Brandon Mccarthy. Everyone was happy with the deal, but no one more so than Rodriguez, who was so eager to play for a winning team that he did something utterly contrary to his reputation: He offered to take a substantial pay cut. The Red Sox weren’t willin ...

Game over: White Sox 6, Red Sox 4: The Red Sox' five-game winning streak came to an end. Red Sox starter Jon Lester lost for the first time this season, allowing all six runs (five earned) over six innings. Adam Dunn blasted a three-run homer in the first inning to pace the White Sox attack. Jarroid Saltalamacchia belted his fifth homer, had two hits and nearly tied the game when his drive to center was caught near the wall by Alex Rios. Mike Napoli singled to open the ninth inning off White Sox closer Addison Reed, but the Red Sox were unable to sustain a rally. Middlebrooks hit long drive to the 400 foot market in center, but it was caught.Paul Konerko made a great diving stab of Stephen Drew's hard grounder and throw to the pitcher covering to end the game. Reed earned his 15th save. The game was played in 2:52 before 21,816 at US Cellular Field. Source: Boston.com
Why, Why, Why? Why did Bobby V. pitch to Youk with first base open, two men on, two outs, and the score tied 3 to 3? Because he's smarter than any other manager? NOT! "Youkilis did his OPS battle with Jon Lester there, working his way to a 3-2 count with men on second and third. Then, in one very Kevin Youkilis swing, he ripped a fly that was an over-the-wall guarantee from the moment it touched his bat. Mid 4th, 6-2 White Sox: Welcome back, Kevin Youkilis.
