Game 16: Red Sox vs. Rays

Y'know, after last night's game, I've got a new appeal to Clay Buchholz:

If you're going to suck--if you're going to completely bury the team tonight--please do so in the first. Just get it over with band-aid style. No leading us on for five innings first, no keeping the game close. If we're going to lose tonight, let us know? Please?

If you had "10% of the way through the season with a .600 record" for how long it would take me to crack, congratulations! Your lack of faith is both insulting and wise.
