    Red Sox 2, White Sox 4:
    Same Old Song and Dance, my friend…

    It appears that a good bullpen and good bats are mutually exclusive–all the years we had excellent offense, our bullpen would frequently implode (Scott Williamson was always good for a Jack Daniels and Maalox Cocktail…) Now, the Sox have one of the best bullpens in the business, and its taking an act of Congress to […]

    Red Sox 5, Royals 6:
    I don’t have a good feeling about this…

    7 games separate the Sox from the Skanks in the AL East–are we looking at 2002 all over again??? Once again the Sox could not capitalize on a crappy team and lose a series. While the Batsh*t Julian’s performance was less than stellar, with him not being able to hold onto a 4-2 lead–and that […]

    Vintage Knuckler…

    And not even in a good way… As fellow blogger, and good friend Ted said to me last night: “You know, Christine, the knuckle ball is always a fickle mistress” and once again that adage is proven right—Tim Wakefield and his unpredictable pitch are cruising, doing fairly well, and then you blink, and the game […]

    The way a win should be…

    To paraphrase Harry Potter (I saw the movie this weekend, and anxiously await book #7..) Kason Gabbard was bloody brilliant in his 3rd start since taking over for a rapidly recovering Curt Schilling, throwing a complete game shutout against KC, his first since High School. He also took a no hitter into the 5th inning, […]

    Red Sox 1, Toronto 2:
    I HATE games like this…

    Sounding like a broken record: Once AGAIN, the starting pitcher and the bullpen pitch brilliantly, and once AGAIN the bats stay quiet against a CRAPPY opposing pitcher, and once AGAIN the Sox lose a game they should have won… Beckett’s Line: 8 Innings, giving up 7 hits and 2 runs while striking out 8. So […]

    American League 5, National League 4:
    Another AL Win–but this one was a close one…

    J. J. Putz almost cooked his own bacon–and the rest of the AL, when he gave up the 2-run homer to Soriano before Francisco Rodriguez came out and saved it by getting the final out–but not before loading the bases by walking 2… And if I were J. J. Putz, I would have changed my […]
