    Red Sox 6, Oreos 10:
    Waiting for the shoe…

    Wait for it… And…There it is… Out with a whimper, not even a final death throe… What am I talking about, you might ask? Well, with today’s loss, the Sox are “officially”out of postseason contention. Their “magic number” for a Wild Card Berth was at 1 after last night’s loss. And they checked out in […]

    Red Sox 3, Tampa Bay 4, in the 11th:
    A Split…

    Watched very little baseball this weekend. I just can’t anymore. Even when they win, it just seems…pointless. And when you are 19.5 GB in your division (and, painfully, 6.5 GB the team in 4th place in your division), I guess it kinda is… My friend Steve actually deleted the MLB App from his phone, and […]

    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 […]
