Hefty Lefty a Wednesday Night Bust.
Well, it was more like scenario number one in the preceding post, except Skipper Francona decided to let the fat man eat up some more innings as the game was lost. 5 innings. 7 runs. That won't do in the future. On the bright side, home runs by Mohr and Papi. Good bullpen work by Dinardo and Seanez when it mattered little. Or none. Manny is still slumping. Our shortstop is batting .148, but he is invaluable in the field, the anchor of our infield. But he's got to get that average over the .200 mark. Major leaguers do that, ya know.
So, as the cliche goes, you can't win them all. But I have to think that we would have had a tremendously greater chance to win and claim victory number 7 with ANYONE else on the mound. ANYONE. Boomer, get better, or this might be the shortest season in your major league career. Clement tonight, and the atmosphere will surely be different at our Fenway Park.
