    Red Sox 6, Kansas City 1:
    3 out of 4..

    Posted by Christine E. at 11:50 am in Baseball,Random Thoughts,Red Sox Comment (1)

    So, the only game the Sox could not manage to win against this crappy team, was the one where Tim Wakefield makes his 437th try for #200? THAT is the game where the bullpen implodes and the offense is anemic? For Wake?

    Yeah, sounds about right…

    But after 3 wins this weekend, the Sox are where they were when they started this weekend–1/2 game behind the Skanks…

    Jon Lester, despite the 4 walks, pitched a good game, going 6+ innings, and giving up 1 run on 3 hits while striking out 3 for his 13th win of 2011. He threw 113 pitches, 69 for strikes. The bullpen then came in and did what they could not do in Saturday’s contest, they pitched 3 perfect innings, with 5 strikeouts in the span…

    And Jason Varitek had his bicentennial triple to start the Red Sox offense (actually his last was in June of 2007) which also consisted of a solo shot from both Darnell McDonald and Carl Crawford…

    Can I just tell you this whole Jacoby Ellsbury injury thing is giving me serious flashbacks to last year? The Sox need him in the lineup to be successful, so its fortunate that it happened when they were playing the lowly Royals. It is expected he will return to the starting 9 for this upcoming series against the Rangers…

    Big Papi is doing better, took in some batting practice over the weekend, and will have his walking boot removed today. The Sox hope the bursitis in his right heel will have subsided enough to play this week…He weighs in: “I’m not limping anymore. Yesterday, I hit and it doesn’t bother me at all. I’m not sore or anything at all today…”(But) It all depends on what the doctor says. The thing is, with that, they want me to be 100 percent because that’s something, if it’s not 100 percent, it can get worse — worse than it was.”

    Looks like Bobby Jenks is still on the rehab path, and is scheduled to throw a simulated game today, and barring an unforeseen, will hit the minor leagues sometime later in the week. I wonder what the next “thing” will be that sidelines Jenks. Isn’t it ironic (don’tcha think?) that there was SUCH a fuss made when the Sox signed him, that he was going to put Papelbon on notice, etc etc. And what ends up happening? He is pretty much a non-event–except when he was imploding on the mound…

    And its not only Jake’s injury that gives me flashbacks…its the never ending list of injuries that seem to be cropping up. Why don’t the Skanks ever have this problem? They have a bunch of old players…

    Coming up: Erik Bedard is still looking for his 1st win in a Red Sox uniform, despite pitching well. He tries again tonight against the massive offense know as the Texas Rangers, who beat the ever living snot out of the Sox the last time they met them–Opening Day. And speaking of which–how did the division of the 10 game season series end up 7-3 in favor of the Rangers? Bedard is opposed by CJ Wilson. 1st pitch 8:10pm.
