    Red Sox 2, Oakland 3:
    I knew in the 4th inning….

    Posted by Christine E. at 11:28 am in Baseball,Random Thoughts,Red Sox Comments (2)

    The way the Sox have been playing this week, as soon as those 3 runs scored in the 4th, I said to myself: “Self, this game is over, and the Sox just lost their 4th in a row…CRAP”

    And why the HELL does it always seem to the be the 4th inning???

    Again, the starting pitching got the job done–Wakefield bounced back nicely from the Friday night debacle against the Skanks, going 6 2/3 and only giving up 3 runs on 7 hits, while striking out 8 and walking only 2.

    But once again its the GIDP–there were THREE in last nights game–is there a more disheartening play to an offense? Maybe a triple play, but they don’t happen very often….

    I really don’t want to start to panic– after all, its only a week of bad games….and it’s not even that they are playing bad…the Sox just cannot seem to sting something together…I hate games like this–its so disheartening when batter after batter gets out, while the other teams has 2-3 runs and you know that its enough to win the game—this team is better than that…

    But then again, the true test of mettle is when the going gets tough–its easy to be positive when you win…they need to turn this around–and quick…

    And I am telling you, the ONLY thing Julio Lugo is good for is stealing bases–and he is very good at that–I will give him that–but its seems like he is having a 0-4 or 0-5 game a couple times a week (his current average is .225). and in this series? and inspiring 1-10…My stomach TURNS when he comes to bat–and this offense is different than A-Gon–HOW??? At least with A-Gon we had superior defense…THIS is always what we lost our 1st draft pick for???

    Speaking of draft picks: Here are the Red Sox top draft picks for the last 10 years–you may recognize some of them: Jason Place, Jacoby Ellsbury, Dustin Pedroia, David Murphy, Jon Lester, Kelly Shoppach, Phil Dumatrait, Rick Asadoorian, Adam Everett, and John Curtice…

    Its that time of year again, where talk of the All-Star game happens…and the inevitable questions start coming up–But the biggest one for me is: Why Why WHY is A-Fraud the AL leader in fan voting? Jeter is repulsive, but that would be more understandable–A-Fraud is a cheater, a lousy teammate, not to mention not above bush-league plays…I know a lot of baseball fans, and no one I know likes A-Fraud–not even the Skankee fans…

    Today: THANKFULLY! a game that is not at 10:05! to prevent a 4-game sweep, Curt Schilling needs to step up as staff ace and stop this slide–and that might only be accomplished if he goes out and throws a no hitter…Oakland’s Joe Blanton will throw the 1st pitch at 3:35pm–but don’t get too excited…tomorrow and Saturdays’ games against Arizona start at 9:40…UGH

      You knew in the 4th inning, and you did not post at my blog to tell me it was over and I could go to bed?

      ::returns REALLY nice wedding gift for Christine to the store::

      It sucked. Big time. But after Schill’s almost no hitter today, I’m having a hard time remembering the last 4 games. The big man was the stopper when we had to have him, and the boys head off to Arizona on a positive note.

      Hope you are doing well,
