Why Red Sox Falling To Second Place in AL East Keeps NESN Nation’s Fitzy Up At Night

Friday night's loss was a tough one to stomach for a couple of reasons. No. 1, it's never fun to lose to the Yankees. No. 2, the loss means the Yankees are in first place and the Red Sox are in second.

NESN Nation's Fitzy doesn't particularly care for the taste of second place and couldn't sleep after watching the Sox fall to the hated Yanks.

Luckily, he doesn't have to wait very long for the Red Sox to have another chance at the Yankees. That's the beauty of baseball.

Watch the pregame video to see why Fitzy has faith in John Lackey as he takes the mound across from CC Sabathia, and make sure to join the conversation with NESN Nation's live chat during the game.
