Rangers 10, Red Sox 9
Josh Beckett rocked again as Red Sox lose
Reporters asked manager Bobby Valentine only six questions Wednesday afternoon after the Texas Rangers beat the Red Sox, 10-9, at Fenway Park. The Sox are a paint-by-numbers story these days. They lose a few, mix in a few wins to avoid total irrelevance, then lose a few more. Little changes, only the details of each game. As the quick press conference ended, Valentine sighed and rose slowly from his chair. On his way back to the clubhouse, he softly punched a closed door. His anger, what there is left of it, is muted.
