Beckett, Red Sox Folded, Spindled And Mutilated

****3rd LOSS IN A ROW****

This one was not pretty. The tone was set in the back of our minds in the very first inning, when Milton Bradley snatched a home run away from Manny Ramirez. From that point on, it seemed evident that runs were going to be hard to come by. In fact, of the 37 runners in scoring position in these last 3 games, all losses, two extra inning ones, only 5 of those have scored. Let's put a stop to those kind of figures. And the defense has looked ordinary, at times. The last 8 runs in this one were unearned. But we were already out of it by then.
Beckett had a tough night, if you want to call 4 1/3 innings a night. Breslow, in his Sox debut, was good. As was Rudy. Yes Rudy Seanez. But with the first 5 hitters in the lineup going 2 for 19, we were done, medium rare, when Beckett shuffled to the dugout to polite applause. After all, this was his first Fenway loss. His ERA is north of 5.00. Eskimo territory. Snowshoe land. And that ain't good. So the losing streak is 3. Since their 50-29 mark, the Sox have lost 6 of 9. If they keep it up like this, they won't be at the top of the AL East for long. Turn it around. TONIGHT.

So. Very. Unhappy about last night's game. But yes, at least we're seeing a glimmer of something to come from Breslow.
Still, so hard to bear.
Today. Today we will turn it around.

I'm with you! I even wore my Mr. Doubles tee today when out shopping. I'd like to see the ChiSox take one from the Yankees on Fox first, and then win tonight while seeing Schill without any problems from Sunday's hit on the arm. You're in Chicago. Please bring 'em in, even though they are in NY. Hope you are well.

Last Night was enough to make a grown man Barf:

It's ChiSox-Yankees on FOX;

Buck & Mc Moron are enough to cause me to barf even more.
