Watch A Boston Red Sox Sportswriter Jinx The Boston Red Sox

During a rain delay in last night's Red Sox-Orioles game, Boston's broadcast decided to kill some time by speaking with Globe sportswriter Dan Shaughnessy.At the time that this interview takes place, the Red Sox have a slim 3-2 lead over the Orioles in the bottom of the 7th.
More importantly, though, the Rays are losing 7-0 to the Yankees in the eighth inning. Hardly anyone thought Tampa Bay could come back, and with a Rays loss the Red Sox were assured an AL Wild Card tie at the very least. So Shaughnessy made his prediction: the Rays would lose and the Red Sox would live to play another day. It was a perfectly reasonable thing to say.
