Think You’re Upset? Just Listen to Ozzie…
The details of last night’s 4-3, 14-inning loss to the Mariners are almost too painful to recall, but I’ll try.
The Sox took a 3-1 lead into the ninth after a superb eight-inning performance by John Danks and looked to win the series and gain a game on the Tigers…Not so fast, Bobby Jenks proceeded to cough up home runs to Jose Lopez and Bill Hall, blew the save and the Sox ultimately lost on an Ichiro walk-off single off of Scott Linebrink. And I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that Jermaine Dye and Alex Rios were 0-12 between them.
OK, I got it all out. Now let’s hear from Ozzie, who had a few choice words after the game and even promised lineup changes for the series opener tonight against the Royals at the Cell:
“I’m tired and I don’t have anything…it was 2 1/2 hours of satisfaction and then 2 1/2 hours of horse (bleep) baseball. Go ask them. I don’t have any more quotes, seriously. What the (bleep) am I going to say? They’re horse (bleep)? Yes, they are…if they give up on me, then I give up on them.”
As if that’s not enough, Ozzie came out with one of his classic gems before last night’s disaster:
“This is a tease, man. “It’s like when you have a girlfriend and you are kissing her all over the place and you get to the mambo, and she says no. That’s where we are right now. That’s the way we are.”
