    Red Sox 7, Oreos 18:
    W…T…H…?

    Posted by Christine E. at 7:56 pm in Baseball,Random Thoughts,Red Sox Comment (1)

    Yes, I understand that ending April at .500 is acceptable behavior, as teams are still trying to find their way, often battling drastic weather changes and getting into the groove of the season. I get it. But holy hell, going from winning 2 out of 3, to LOSING 2 out of 3, taxing their bullpen to the extreme, and mostly complete and utter CRAP pitching from the starting 5 (But That Clay Person has actually been ok–how freaking ironic is that????)

    Apparently, Wade Miley decided to channel his famous counterpart (minus the twerking, hopefully), because there is no other explanation for the suckage that was yesterday’s outing. 57 pitches, 247 for strikes in 2 1/3 innings where he gave up 7 runs (6 earned) on 5 hits while walking 2 and striking out 0. Which gives him a nifty 8.62 ERA. Blech.

    And since we are spreading the blame around: Note to management: I know you brought Hembree up to ease the load for the bullpen–but I’m thinking 6 runs while only getting 4 outs is not exactly what you had in mind. Should have called someone else up…or kept Barnes in the bigs….

    But friends of mine were visiting family in Baltimore, and it was their first game, so at least it was a high scoring game, which is always exciting.

    Speaking of exciting: But, if your into something a little bit different, the 141st Kentucky Derby is coming up this Saturday, May 2nd, 2015 at Churchill Downs. If you’re a betting person, and want to learn how to bet on the Kentucky Derby online check out this sports wagering site and take part in the most exciting 2 minutes in all of sports.

    And because we need more irony with our baseball: The ONLY pitcher who didn’t give up a run in yesterday’s contest: Edward Mujica.

    But at least John Farrell gets it, even it’s a bit of an understatement: “We’ve got to do better in all phases of the game. It starts with getting the game under control from the mound. That wasn’t the case today.”

    And……who had April 23rd in the “when will Shane Victorino go on the DL” pool? I know they party line is that they need the roster spot, and they want to rest him and his hamstring, and it’s a long season, blah blah blah, but I’ll bet you a dollar he won’t be ready the 1st week of May when he can come off the DL…

    And it’s nice to see that Brock Holt was not just a one-hit wonder in 2014. He is hitting .424 so far this season, including a 3-run shot on Friday night, which helped the Sox win the only contest of the weekend series with the Cookies….And yes, he is still playing every position except catcher–BUT the season is young…

    Coming up: a 9-game home stand with the other 3 teams in the AL East. Kicking off tonight is 3 against Toronto with Joe Kelly, going for his 2nd win, taking the bump for the Sox, opposed by Aaron Sanchez. 1st pitch, 6:10pm–just like the rest of the series. Weirdness…
