It feels so good to see the arrogant Red Sox fans grieving over their team's loss to the Orioles. Makes my hardened heart all soft and gushy to see them weep. I hope they have a long, cold and bitter winter.

I would say quit whining, but the Sox fans' tears are like candy, so keep it up!

The Red Sox simply didn't deserve to make the playoffs this year and they would have been eliminated in short order anyway. Go Rays!
