Blue Jays vs Red Sox boxscore

Congratulations, Roy Halladay! You just dominated a Triple-A lineup!

That was so bad it was funny. So bad that Dusty Brown pitched the final inning. So bad that Joey Gathright led the Red Sox with two hits. So bad that Kevin Millar hit in the No. 3 spot (for the Jays, not the Sox). So bad that ...

Well, how much does this loss really matter? The Sox are in the playoffs and although they've looked really bad, the most important thing is a lock: October. Sure, momentum is nice, but it's been proven in the past that the regular season doesn't mean much come playoff time.

Maybe -- just maybe -- it won't be so bad when the Sox finish the season with the Indians in a four game set that starts Thursday. Four game winning streak to finish the regular season?

Maybe.
