Frustrations are starting to mount for the Red Sox. Big Papi didn’t like the calls from the plate umpire. Even Terry Francona got tossed last night, although he’s no Phillip Wellmen. Wakefield pitched well for the Sox but got no help as the Sox hit into 3 more double plays, bringing the the total to 7 in two games. Is this the June swoon? I certainly hope not.Let’s take a look at what the Boston and Oakland area media has to say about last night’s game and the two teams.
