    Red Sox 3, White Sox 0:
    Pod Checking…and Other Random Thoughts…

    OK, I am DEFINITELY checking for pods. Arguable the WORST pitcher the Sox have on the starting 5 (6-11, with a 5.47 ERA–we’re talking John Lackey circa 2012 BAD), pitched BRILLIANTLY for 7 innings of 5-hit ball with 5 strikeouts and a wild pitch. He threw 94 pitches, 67 for strikes. He just got off […]

    Red Sox 6, Cleveland 4: Well, that was unexpected…

    …Except that I guess it really wasn’t. I think everyone kinda felt the rumblings (at least I did) that it was certainly possible that once Dave Dombrowski was let go by the Tigers, that he would find a home with the Sox. Especially since he and John Henry have a looooong history–and we all know […]

    August 11, 2015: No More Koji…

    As a result the line drive Ian Kinsler bounced off his writs on Friday night, Koji’s wrist is fractured, leaving him with 25 saves and a 2.23 ERA for the 2015 campaign, as he season is now over. Although based on the current state of affairs, it’s not really going to make a bit of […]

    Red Sox 2, Skanks 1:
    Now, Was That Really All That Hard???

    Holy hell, I am getting tired of this…. OK, truth be told, I had my fill of this nonsense about June of LAST year, but I think you get to a point (at least I do anyway) where all the losses just keep on piling up, and it gets numbing… But I am not sure […]

    Red Sox 8, White Sox 10:
    13. Games. Behind.

    Two weeks ago, the Sox were 5.5 games behind in the AL East. Still dead last, but 5.5 games heading into the All-Star break, while daunting, was possible. Today, after losing NINE OF THEIR LAST ELEVEN, including being swept by Anaheim AND the fracking Astros–who are, inexplicably in second place in the AL West–They are […]

    July 10, 2015: Closing out the First Half of 2015.

    So the Sox are riding a 4-game winning streak, Ric Porcello actually WON a game, and brought his ERA under 6 (yes, check for pods…), and the Sox have won 8 out of their last 10 contests, which puts the Sox in a very interesting position for this weekend’s series against the first place Skanks. […]
