- It's a seven-game series. Winning by twelve runs does not give you an automatic lead in any of the next six games.
- If they were going to lose, it was going to happen against Beckett.
- The Rockies hadn't played a live baseball team for eight days. Now they have, and they've got their blood flowing again. Scrimmages and practice sessions are no substitute for the real thing.
- They got embarrassed last night. This is the most important thing to me. Last night left them bruised, battered, and embarrassed. A team in that condition is a dangerous team to face.
The Red Sox are feeling proud, cocky, confident. The Rockies are feeling angry, humiliated, and hungry for revenge.
Let's see if they can bounce back tonight and make it a series.
