Henry Hill Puts Last Night Into Perspective

Jon Lester had nothing, and gave up seven runs. Mark Melancon gave up three home runs and didn't get an out, and now has an ERA of 49.50. (And a ticket to Pawtucket coming?)

The Red Sox lost and lost butt ugly, 18-3 to Texas.

Reformed gangster Henry Hill (as played by Ray Liotta) said it best in the classic film "Goodfellas":

"Every once and a while I'd have to take a beating. But by then, I didn't care. The way I saw it? EVERYBODY TAKES A BEATING SOMETIME."

But hopefully not this bad again.(It was also the first time the Sox lost by 15 runs in 12 years.)

Josh Beckett goes for his second win tonight.
