    Red Sox 4, Angels 10:
    Mr. Yuk for Everyone!!

    Posted by Christine E. at 11:44 am in Baseball,Random Thoughts,Red Sox Comment (1)

    MRYUKWhy is it that when the Sox are 5 games back from the Skanks it seems insurmountable, and now the shoe is on the other foot, and the Sox are 5 games ahead, and it feels like the lead is NOTHING?

    Probably because if the Sox don’t do SOMETHING better than play .500 ball for the rest of the season, the surging Skanks will be going to the playoffs and the Sox will be golfing…AGAIN…

    And AGAIN, Tim Wakefield and the Sox were at the mercy of that fickle mistress–the knuckleball. Despite the fact that Wake felt he had some of the best stuff of the season, the 5th inning went to hell in a hand basket, and when all was said and done, the Sox lost their 2nd game in a row to a potential post season rival, and drop to only 5 games ahead of the Skanks who cannot seem to lose these days…

    His line for the day? 4 innings, giving up 7 runs (6 earned) on 7 hits, while walking 3 and striking out 2. It as his shortest outing since June 1…YUK!

    I am leaving for the shore for a long weekend tomorrow (and no baseball), am I going to come home to find the Sox in 2nd place? Last year when I went to the shore for a long weekend, it was the weekend of the Sox Massacre–could it happen again???

    And of course Mr. USELESS Lugo got another error which contributed to the debacle that was the 5th inning–Theo, STILL thinking this signing was a good idea.???? UGH…

    Looks like Wily MO may be gone soon–he cleared trade waivers which means he can be traded to any team prior to the August 31st; From Wily Mo: “I want to be traded…I want to play. They know I want to play. I’m surprised I wasn’t traded before the deadline…I am not a guy who has caused any trouble…but I want to play.” The Orioles are a possibility. Watch, he’ll go somewhere and be to the Sox what Big Papi is to Minnesota…

    Coming up tonight: The LAST middle of the night game for the 2007 campaign happens tonight–whooo hoo! Jon Lester takes the mound to try to stop the skid and right the ship. 10:05 is the start time. the Angels counter with Dustin Moseley…

      Christine, don’t worry: enjoy your vacation because I predict a 8 game lead by the end of the weekend for the Sox. Sorry I couldn’t post a comment on yesterdays: the phone co ran over my cable line so I had no internet until this morning.

      Hope you are well, the boys WILL win tonight, the Yanks will lose and we’ll have 6 game lead again.

      Have a great trip!
