"I think the Rays are not going to win tonight."
— Boston Globe sports columnist DAN SHAUGHNESSY, during a broadcast on NESN last night: the Red Sox / Orioles game was in a rain delay, and the Rays were losing 7-0 to the New York Yankees.
The Yankees lost, of course, giving Tampa Bay the AL Wild Card, while the Red Sox — well, we all know what happened there.
Chickens, not hatched, but counted. By a Red Sox fatalist, no less.
