    Red Sox 2, Oakland 9:
    I guess 3 in a row was too much to ask..

    Posted by Christine E. at 8:15 pm in Baseball,Random Thoughts,Red Sox Comment (1)

    …at least in wins, anyway. In losses, the Sox have NO problem getting 3 or more in a row..

    And I see that Justin Masterson didn’t think his 6+ ERA was QUITE high enough, with the shelling he received last night. Love the guy, but as I said in the offseason when Ben signed him–did we REALLY need another #4 or 5 pitcher, when we already have 4 of them???

    His line: 2 1/3 IP, giving up 6 runs on 6 hits (including TWO homers while walking 1 and striking out 1. He threw 57 pitches, 30 for strikes.

    Knuckleballer Stephen Wright came in for the rest of the game and only gave up 3 runs in his 5 2/3 innings of work, although he did allow 1 inherited runner to score, and walked 3…

    And while the offense has been pretty sucky as of late, even I don’t expect them to overcome a 9-run obstacle…

    So now the Sox are 15-18 and continue to be at the bottom of the AL East. Holy Hell it is so FREAKING FRISTRATING that they again are awful when the division is so freaking weak (CC Sabathia just won his first start THIS WEEK) that they could run away with the division…

    This is one of the few reasons I like middle of the night games on the Left Coast–I’m asleep and do not have to see this nonsense…

    Speaking of nonsense, Oakland has a SIX game losing streak going into last night’s contest. SO glad the Sox could help them out by breaking that….UGH

    I know I am late in the game on this (That’s what I get for having a full time job, going to grad school to get my masters, and doing the mommy thing), but how bout Juan Nieves getting fired and being replaced by Carl Willis? While some of the blame should be his as pitching coach, how bout “firing” some of hte suckage known as the starting 5? Good Luck, Carl–you’re gonna need it…

    So the Flyin’ Hawaiian is back, activated from the DL on Monday, and it appears he has finally lost the full-time starting job, which I think it a good thing. He’s not durable enough to play every day anymore, and the Sox can use his bat in hte lineup against lefties, as he hits better against them..

    Neato stat: Koji got his 100th save (67th in major league baseball) on Sunday, which surprises me–I thought that number would be a lot higher, as it feels he’s saved about 100 games for the Red Sox alone…

    And because it figures, Mujica, who was traded by the Sox to Oakland over hte weekend (Yay!)faced his old team in the 8th inning on Monday, and pitched a scoreless frame….Yep…

    Coming up: The middle of the night games continue tomorrow as the Sox head to Seattle to play four against the Mariners. First game, Joe Kelly (who will hopefully suck less, or he can kiss that Cy Young goodbye takes the bump against Roenis Elias. 1st pitch 10:10pm…

      China, Netherlands, South Korea – 60 to 1
      odds each. People looking to coach soccer must have
      the right knowledge and experience in order to train their players properly.

      There are many pretty women on the Canadian team this year though.
