    Red Sox 0, Tampa Bay 1:
    Is there a problem here?

    Posted by Christine E. at 11:47 am in Baseball,Random Thoughts,Red Sox Comments (7)

    Of course, once again, good pitching completely shuts down the Red Sox, despite the fact that Curt Schilling was freaking good, going 6 innings and only giving up the 1 run (on a couple of sac flies) on 5 hits while striking out 5 and walking 1.

    And I cannot be the only person who has considered that the Sox could be in BIG trouble come Monday morning? If the Sox are swept by Tampa Bay and the Skanks–COULD happen…The Sox are currently 5 games ahead..

    Worst Case Scenario: If they lost the next 5, and the Skanks won their next 6, the Sox would be 1/2 game behind in the division…

    And Daisuke starts the 3 game series with the Skanks on Friday…


    The most revolting thing in the entire game? Sir Julio the Useless as the DH…Are you KIDDING me??? And then he thought it would be a good idea to do a little styling, saying such things as: “We’ve got a real DH tonight.” and “We need some power out of the DH spot.” Just a heads up Julio–you are not even remotely funny or witty, and seeing you as DH made me ill…The only good thing about it is that we did not have to see your less than stellar defense on the field….

    One of the reasons Big Papi was not in the game until he pinch hit in the 9th was his knee is bothering him again–and despite the fact that he has been playing with the torn meniscus since June of last year, its gotten to the point where knee surgery will happen in the off-season. From Big Papi: “I definitely have to, otherwise I’ll be going through this next year again and I don’t feel like it..it might get worse. I’m not going to get younger.”

    Tonight: Hopefully the last start was only a glitch for Tim Wakefield, and he will continue his excellence of the 2007 campaign and take the mound and throws the 1st pitch at 7:05pm this evening for the 2nd game of the 3 game series against the Satan fish. Andy Sonnastine toes the rubber for Tampa Bay…

      I went for so long not paying attention to baseball-but now I am back and in a hostile NYC VS SOX work environment…and like Don Corleone, “They pulled me back”. Does anyone else loose sleep over this stuff? Timmy, you better do you think tonight! Um and a hit or two would be nice from one of the most powerful offenses in baseball!

      Could not agree more, robthesun, Thank for the comments, and welcome..:-)

      Go Sox!

      Well, it looks like Wake didn’t have it tonight and Snyder just gave up a 3 run shot to Haverhill, so it looks like at least a 7 run comeback will have to suffice.

      NO WAY they get swept by the Rays, and I think they take 2 of 3 from the Yankees this weekend. Remember, I told you not to worry a while back when it was down to 4: they’ll be fine.

      Welcome back from your cruise: I hope you had a great time, and it’s good to have you back blogging.

      welcome back this game is making me feel worse 🙁

    5. Christine E. says:

      Hope your feeling ok, Kaylee–don’t let the game make you feel too bad (although it bums me out too..:-(

      Ted: Yeah, Wake was practically untouchable, and then missed the start, lost his rhythm and now is sucking BAD..

      I really hope they can turn this around…

      Go Sox!

      Well, so far they’ve scored 7 runs: 9-8 in the top of the 6th.

      We WILL win this game.

    7. Christine E. says:

      Currently 16-9 in the top of the 8th…WOW never thought they would com back from the 8-1 deficit like THIS

      Hopefully, its a trend, and not a one time thing…

      Go Sox!
