    Red Sox 4, Tampa Bay 5:
    Uh…Who the FRACK is Jose Lobaton???

    Posted by Christine E. at 3:35 pm in Baseball,Random Thoughts,Red Sox Comment (1)

    I’ll admit, I am not completely versed in every player on every team in major League Baseball. I know the big guns, and quite a few of the middle range one…But honestly, who the frig is this guy? I know he is a backup catcher, but REALLY?

    Well, as someone said, he’s the guy who beat the Sox last night, stroking a 2-run shot in the bottom of the 9th, against KOJI of all people…

    And while That Clay Person was certainly competent in his 1st postseason start since 2009, he just felt “Meh” through the whole thing…

    His line: 6 IP, throwing 104 pitches, 64 for strikes, giving up 3 runs on 7 hits (including that @&*!&&@!#*&#@! 3-run shot to GD Eva (n) Longoria), while walking 3 and striking out 5…

    Just…MEH…

    And, uh, John Farrell, can we please, please, PLEASE make Brandon Workman go away? It’s his fault Franklin Morales has a 27.00 ERA in the postseason, as he allowed 1 of the 2 inherited runners to score. And this is not the first time he has failed to get it done, resulting in a Red Sox Loss. Bring what’s his head up: Matt Thornton, cause Workman isn’t…

    While we are here, let’s look at my predictions for this week, and see how on track we are:

    ALDS #1: Sox vs Tampa Bay: Sox in 4: This can still happen, if they fracking SLAM THE DAMN DOOR tonight, before this gets out of hand…

    ALDS #2: Tigers vs Oakland: Tigers in 5: Still could happen, as Oakland is leading the Tigers 2 games to 1, but the Tigers seem sluggish…

    NLDS #1: St Louis vs Pittsburgh: St Louis in 5: With the series all tied up 2-2 tomorrow night at 8:00pm is the one for all the marbles…Adam Wainwright, on 6 days rest, was brilliant in Game 1, limiting the Bucs to 1 hit, while striking out 9–let’s hope he can do it again…

    NLDS #2: Dodgers vs Braves: Braves in 5: Well, so much for that one. Last night, the Dodgers beat Atlanta 4-3 to advance to the NLCS…I really hate the Dodgers…

    Coming up: Jake Peavy gets the start in Game 4, opposed by Jeremy Hellickson. This is why the Sox got him–he wants to make an impact. Sounds like a win-win to me. 1st pitch 8:37pm

    Jake: if you win this game, all the women in the free world will want you. END THIS NOW…

    Let’s do this…Go Sox!

      […] one, suggestion, as a follow-up to yesterdays’ blog post: Can we get Matt Thornton up for the ALCS, and get rid of Brandon Workman? Ben? John? Thanks so […]
