Its being called the worst September collapse in history. The expectations were so high coming into the season. Best record in baseball for 4 months. Out of the playoffs after the 162nd game. Where will Papelbon, Francona, and Epstein be next year?

A new third base coach would be a great start.

That was crazy to watch last night. I had some hope when the Yankees went up big, and it was looking good. I wasn't up all night in frustration after the games ended; it was more just a bit of amazement at how it all went down so fast.

Now, time to figure out what to do with these.....

I think Papelbon blew enough games this year to take the blame for everything, he really sucks and the Red Sox are at fault for keeping him around at all this year.

According to sox fans at work he only blew 3 games all season, 2 of which were in the last week though. And he only lost 1 game - the last of the season.

From the games I watched, Bard can take his share of the blame. I believe he lost 9 games on the season.
