Though the evacuation of Fenway Park midway through Sunday’s game probably had more to do the revelation that the Indians had been eliminated than the fact it took 2 hours and 10 minutes to play 4 innings, it was weird to see the finale of such a crucial series turn so anticlimatic.
Even self-annointed Red Sox superfan Bill Simmons, perhaps hoping to pick up some scratch after Saturday’s disappointing book signing, cut out during the 4th inning. This time, Bill wore a friendlier costume whilst greeting shoppers on Yawkee Way.
I think it is usually a mistake to read much into a player’s choice of music played over the tannoy as he steps into the box, but I’ll make an exception in this case. Trot Nixon is the only person in the entire world that listened to ‘St. Anger’ more than once.
