Red Sox fall apart as team - BostonHerald.com Quote by Steve Buckley in todays column: This was different. Even as the Red Sox were trudging off the field yesterday afternoon at Fenway Park [map], having coughed up one last lead in suffering a season-ending 7-6 loss to the Los Angeles Angels in Game 3 of the Division Series, could anybody honestly say the better team won? The Red Sox were, and are, a better team than the Angels. But they didnt play better than the Angels. Not even close. And thats why the Angels are going to the American League Championship Series and the Red Sox are going back to the drawing board: They were outclassed in every possible way.
