but i'm going to go with: the Angels needed this win.*

things i could blame tonight's loss on:

--Wakefield's Matsuzaka impression. need proof? i give you somehow getting out of a no-outs bases-loaded situation without giving up so much as a single run.

--the Sox inability to hit the ball anywhere that there isn't a fielder standing with an open glove.

--the fact that Tek was out of the lineup tonight. don't look at me like that! he currently leads the Sox in the home run category**. go ahead, look it up. i know you don't believe me. it's ok. go! i'll wait right here.
back now? ok. by the way? i told ya!

--anyone coming out of the pen, not named Ramirez or Papelbon.

--those ridiculous new alternate hats. and their goofy red buttons on the top. who pitched this idea? Lugo??

--it's only April. the Sox choose to win their West Coast games in October instead.

*truthfully, i know that the Angels really needed this kind of game to honor their fallen teammate and i really don't begrudge them this win. that being said, i'm really not liking this whole last in the division thing*** so, much as i wish the Angels could have a few wins in a row to bolster their spirits, it's going to have to wait til the Sox leave town because it's time to get some wins in our W column.

**could alternately be filed under: Things You Didn't Think You Would Say After 2008. (not that i am complaining one iota!)

***for real, Sox fans. i'm not one to panic in the first week of April, but do you not feel like you're looking at the AL East standings in a mirror or something?! Toronto-Baltimore****-New York-Tampa-Boston.

****i would like to personally thank the Orioles for handing the Rays a loss tonight. much obliged for your contribution toward stuffing them back down to the bottom of the American League from whence they came.

Yes, the standings are leaving me confused. It's like Bizarro World.
