    Red Sox 7, Oreos 2:
    Another ulcer inducing win..

    I know, the results are desirable, so I guess the end justifies the means–but…HOLY BUCKETS… This line is a contradiction, to say the least…5 Innings pitches, throwing 105 pitches!, 60 for strikes, which could account for the FIVE WALKS. He also gave up 6 hits and had 6 strikeouts–but the end result is only: TWO […]

    Red Sox 6, Oreos 3:
    Are you SURE Jon Lester isn’t the Ace?

    ‘Cause it sure SEEMS like the role of Ace for the Boston Red Sox is now being played by Jon Lester. Although, a compelling case CAN be made for the 14-game winner Daisuke, potential to make us all sick to our stomach with the way he gets in and out of trouble, notwithstanding…. After a […]

    Red Sox 4, Toronto 15:
    Being Outscored by the Opponent 19-5?

    …Not even REMOTELY Priceless… Holy Buckets! Talk about a lost weekend…It’s a DAMN good thing that Friday night was rained out and Clay Buchholz was pushed back to Wednesday, because that certainly would have been loss # 3 for the weekend… In a weekend where the Sox newest starter, Paul Byrd, certainly pitches well enough […]

    Red Sox 10, Rangers 0:
    Outscoring the Opponent 37-20?

    Priceless… Although the fact that Sox pitching gave up TWENTY runs in 2 out of the 3 games is a rather large concern… Last night’s win was the 12th shutout of the season for the Sox, which ties them with Cleveland for the record in the AL… And Daisuke…was Daisuke, but at least he threw […]

    Red Sox 8, Rangers 4:
    A much quieter win…

    Jon Lester, once again, brings a calm and (almost) drama free win to the Sox, after Tuesday night’s craziness…Going 7.1 innings, he gave up 3 runs on 7 hits (including 1 homer) while walking 1 and striking out 6. He threw 108 pitches, 76 for strikes in the outing. Unfortunately, Mike Timlin (like this a […]

    Red Sox 19, Rangers 17:
    36 Runs…

    One would think that 10 runs in the 1st inning (including not 1, but TWO 3-run shots from David Ortiz) would be enough of a cushion for knuckleballer Charlie Zink… Think again: Charlie gave up 8 runs in 4.1 IP, while walking 1 and striking out 1, throwing 85 pitches, 56 for strikes… One would […]
