ALDS Playoff Notes
With both American League Divisional Series over and done with I thought I’d take a look at some of the more interesting highlights.
Here is a comment from the article “Is Jonathan Papelbon Being Overused?”
Early: It almost cost the Sox when their bullpen melted down tonight.
Isn’t that the truth. After recording two outs the Sox in the eighth the Sox turned to Justin Masterson, who preceded to give issue a walk, passed ball and a two run single before getting out of the inning. Had Papelbon been available he certainly would have been called upon with two outs in the eighth. The Red Sox went on to win the game in the ninth but they also came close to giving up the leading run in the top half of that inning as well.
