Yanked: I'm not a coach, but the Red Sox should have pulled pitcher Pedro Martinez off the mound much earlier in the eighth inning. He was obviously struggling. And when two tying runs reached scoring positions, The Sox shouldn't have taken any chances. In a game where it will be difficult, if not impossible, to score again, you can't wait until it's too late to replace your pitcher.

But that's what the Sox did. I know it's easy to second-guess everything the next day. But if they could have only heard me screaming at the TV last night, the Red Sox might be playing in the World Series tomorrow.
