BAD CALLS A Mets fan for twenty years, CONTRAPOSITIVE was rooting (against the Yankees) for the Red Sox last night.

But talk about bad coaching:

Bringing Pedro Martinez into the game in the seventh inning with a seven run lead ranks as one of the most inexplicable, ridiculously bone-headed managerial decisions I've ever seen.

And Red Sox third base coach Dale Sveum should have been summarily fired for waving Johnny Damon home in the first inning. Another amazingly stupid call.

The curse may have lifted last night, but the Sox earned themselves some particularly bad mojo with those two moves.
