    Red Sox 5, Tigers 3:
    Is that a….dare I say it….WIN???

    Posted by Christine E. at 6:47 pm in Baseball,Random Thoughts,Red Sox | No Comments

    And this is so fracking sad sad SAD that it’s shocking–and that I get all ridiculously happy about it. Maybe this is how Houston Astros fans feel like all the time…UGH…

    So John Lackey, with his 7th win, is STILL the only Sox starter with a winning record for the 2014 campaign. And if he continues to pitch the way he has been, that trend may continue. Although, to be fair, Jon Lester usually ends pitching with backup from an anemic offense. Most of the time anyway…

    Lackey’s line: 8 IP, giving up 3 runs (2 earned, thanks to an error by Xander Bogaerts in the 7th) while walking 1 and striking out 5

    And thanks to a solo shot by Mike Napoli is his first game back from being on the DL, the Sox tied it in the 6th. But the best part of the entire contest is that David Ortiz hit a 3-run homer to win the game in the 9th. Off…Wait for it…Joba Chamberlain…ha ha ha ha ha… Read more…

    Red Sox 4, Cleveland 7, in 12:
    And then THIS happened….

    Posted by Christine E. at 6:39 pm in Baseball,BBA,Random Thoughts,Red Sox | No Comments

    Ya know…

    I like Cleveland. I like Terry Francona, and I like the 47 former Red Sox players who are currently playing for them. (Not too fond of Jason Giambi–but that is probably no surprise). They are my Dad’s favorite team. If I didn’t like the Red Sox so much, I could probably be a Cleveland Indians fan…

    And I was SO heartened by the 7 game winning streak the Sox had going on. It looked like MAYEB they had gotten their mojo back, and we were well on our way to making Brock Holt a genuine imitation super hero…

    And THEN Cleveland Happened. And 3 days later the Sox are 5 games under .500 and 8.5 games out of first place. And the suckiest thing of all is that if they could get their heads out of their asses, they could actually win the division, because c’mon, does anyone actually believe Toronto is a 97 win team????

    Me either. Read more…

    Red Sox 4, Tampa Bay 0:
    Tampa Bay Who???

    Posted by Christine E. at 6:03 pm in Baseball,Old Friends,Random Thoughts,Red Sox | No Comments

    When you have JUST ABOUT HAD IT with the annoying and petty other team with their whiny 6.8 fans…

    When there are a million and 15 Red Sox players and managers who get thrown from games all weekend, for various and sundry reasons, despite the fact that it was fracking Tampa Bay pitching spent Friday and Saturday hitting Red Sox batters at will…(although the cranky Texan got one in yesterday…)

    What do you do? How do you retaliate?? You win, and you WIN BIG. A sweep is about as giant of a F*ck you as you can get. And I will take that any day of the week.

    And holy buckets, how the HELL did Tampa Bay usurp the Skanks as the biggest rivals of the Sox??? Weirdness. But there will Nev-A Ev-A be a team I hate more than the Skanks, even if they are rather boring these days…

    Jon Lester has finally hit .500 in the W-L column with his 6th win of the 2014 campaign, and it was a gem: 7 brilliant innings of 4-hit shutout ball, striking out 12, and walking 1. He threw 122 pitches, 73 for strikes… Read more…

    Red Sox 4, Atlanta 0:
    3…is a Magic Number…

    Posted by Christine E. at 6:10 pm in Baseball,Random Thoughts,Red Sox | No Comments

    Holy Buckets! Again with the happy happy joy joy for another Red Sox win. Their 3rd in a row. For the first time this year. Against Atlanta. Hopefully the mojo will transfer to other teams as they can’t play the Braves all stinkin’ year…

    And John Lackey. Holy Buckets. I still cannot believe he is the same pitcher that not only was a ton of complete suckage 2 years ago, but a complete asshat. And he has done a 180 on both counts. As the ONLY winning pitcher in the Red Sox rotation, (Yeah, read that again, I’ll wait) he got his 6th win with a great outing last night. Throwing 105 pitches, 77 for strikes, he pitched 6.1 innings of shutout ball, giving up 8 hits while walking NONE and striking out 9. And again the bullpen did its job with 2.2 innings of 1 hit ball with a walk and 2 strikeouts…

    And shockingly, That Clay Person was placed on the DL yesterday with a hyper extended left knee. Uh huh. I am SURE the injury that he supposedly got THIS WEEK is responsible for the complete and utter CRAP he has been dealing all season. Yeah. SURE it is… Alex Wilson was called up from Pawtucket to take his spot on the 25 man…it will be interesting to see who wil get the spot start in his stead (and Felix’s as well) this weekend against Tampa Bay.
