Monday's Labor Day afternoon game didn't go so well for the Red Sox, as they were shutout by Doug Fister and the Tigers despite yet another strong effort from John Lackey. Let's push that aside for now, though -- there's another game on Tuesday, after all, and the Red Sox didn't lose any ground thanks to the Rays' loss against the Angels.
Instead, let's take a moment to absorb what the Tigers did in their trip to Fenway Park: they sang along with "Sweet Caroline."
Brayan Pena is apparently the ringleader here, bringing Miguel Cabrera and Max Scherzer into the fold, as well as Tigers dude I can't seem to recognize for some reason. At this point, I'm pretty tired of the whole "Sweet Caroline" thing, and having it sung live by Neil Diamond at this summer's All-Star Game was basically torture. But this, I liked this, just because it's goofy and Max Scherzer clearly just wants to run away but can't.
