THE SOX ARE LOOKING LIKE A SINKING SHIP THESE DAYS
Well things are not going well in the Red Sox camp, not well at all. Our once potent pitching rotation has turned into a one man show. Schilling is still doing well and pretty reliable. Beckett has taken a dive that began with a complete implosion at Yankess Stadium. Wells seems destined to be on the DL all year long. Clement can't get a win and is now getting an MRI. Wakefield is spotty and still gets no run support. Our fifth starter changes from Random Rookie #1 to Random Rookie #2 on a daily basis. Things are not good. The bullpen is also like a mash unit. Timlin is out, Foulke is out, and that leaves us with shitty bulpen guy #1 and dirty sanchez.
Ohh yeah, the offense seems to have gone MIA as well.
OOYYY FRICKING VEY.
The Yanks took 2 out 0f 3 in the bronx. One of which was a complete shellacking.
We split a 4 game series with the Rangers. Really Texas should have won 3 out of 4 but Papi had some more late inning heroics to save the day. There was lots of rain. Texas in Boston seems to equal rain this year.
Now we have lost the first two too the twins and seem well on our way to losing a third. Tuesday night we lost the game in the 12th when Tavarez gave up a grand slam in the 12th. In general our bullpen pretty much blows right now.
Last night another stellar bullpen guy Manny Delcarmen gave up yet another grand slam and the offense was once again MIA. In the last game and 4/9 we have scored 2 runs. For what was once the most potent offense going that ain't good.
Today we traded David Riske (if I was a pitcher I would change that name) for minor leauge pitcher Javier Lopez. MINOR LEAGUE? How bout we get someone from the majors.
I am becoming convinced that the Jays are going to win the AL east as the Yankees are all over the place as well.
Watching the Sox is a lot more fun when there winning.
