I'm gonna agree with you. An average 1 Run Loss (not the come from behind kind) is better than getting killed. 4-0 and 9-0 in back to back nights sucks.

Hmm, I think losing 3-2, 5-4, 10-9, would be a hell of a lot more frustrating. So close but no cigar.

But I've made my point already.

the Yankees scored so many runs tonight, ESPN couldn't even keep track of them correctly!

Angels lost again. First time they've been swept all season, I believe. At least this loss isn't Percival's fault

1 run loss: Gee, we almost won.

10 run loss: Gee, we ****in sucked.
actually
most people would consider a 10 run loss a fluke
i dont anyone every thinks it means they suck.. they laugh it off as just a bad night and go on about their business

i dont think any team really judges how good they are by one game

It means they sucked bad that night. And I really doubt they laughed it off more than they would a 1 run loss.

"I guess this is too much to ask, but this was probably televised, right?" Red Sox Manager Terry Francona said. "Just a bad night, a tough night."

I wonder what Deftones' opinion is after the last couple of 1-run losses to the Giants.

My softball team lost 17-3 and I definitely concluded afterwards that we suck some serious ass.
