    Red Sox 11, Toronto 7:
    Uh, What just happened?

    Last night’s contest has to be one of the WEIRDEST ones on record for the Sox in recent memory. And considering what a fracked up season this has been, that is saying something… This one started normally enough. Sort of. The Sox scored 3 off R. A. Dickey in the 1st inning, and then Rubby […]

    Red Sox 6, Mariners 8:
    Just When You Think They’ve Hit Rock Bottom…

    You discover that rock bottom has subbasements. LOTS of them… So that makes EIGHT games in a row, including 2 sweeps. Of course, they had a chance in all of these contests–well, OK, maybe the one where they were almost no-hit A-GAIN they didn’t, but holy hell KOJI with 2 outs in the 9th on […]

    Red Sox 0, Angels 2:
    One Hit. AGAIN…

    So. How many IS that this year? 4? 6? An even dozen? I don’t have the time or inclination to slog through the 2014 campaign looking for the instances where the opposing pitcher no-hit the Red Sox for a bunch of innings, and then someone steps up and saves their collective bacon from the indignity. […]

    Red Sox 3, Angels 4:
    On…and on…and on…

    Yeah, I know the Angels are the best team in baseball, on pace to win 96-ish games this season–but holy hell it feels like they have been in Boston for MONTHS kicking the ever loving crap out of them. Honestly, I had to look and see exactly how many games the Sox have lost in […]

    Red Sox 1, Astros 8:
    The Shoe is on the Other Foot…

    Remember how I/we used to bitch that the Sox needed to do better against horribly crappy teams, as there was no reason why these teams should be beating them? Well guess what, OUR team is now the crappy team… (sigh) Yeah. I know, this isn’t a great revelation, as evidenced by the fact that they […]

    Red Sox 3, Cincinnati 2:
    Enough with the Interleague play already…

    Call me a purist, but AL should old play NL twice a year: The All-Star game, and the World Series. And then there was the 2-3 week period in the middle of the season where the Sox played 4-5 National League teams and THAT was bad enough. NOW, they play a couple here, and a […]
