Fit To Be Tied
8-7 since the All Star break. Mediocre at best. What was a 3 1/2 game lead over the Yankees just a week ago has dissolved into a virtual flatfooted tie. And why? The bullpen is atrocious, not including Paps, allowing 5 runs after Jon Lester departed in the 7th. The 7th turned out to be a huge inning for the Angels. And the undoing of the Red Sox. And you know what? We deserve what we get. Lousy baseball translates into losses, not victories, and our translating skills are just fine, thank you.
Stars of the game for the Red Sox? Here, fill in the blank(s). ------ -------- and ------ ------. Oh, and don't forget ---- -----------.
Day baseball today on Fox. Josh Beckett tries to reverse this generally mediocre play of his team. He can't do it alone, but he can provide the kick start that the Sox so obviously need. If you sense a general feeling of negativity in this post, hey, you're right! That's what .500 baseball does for my attitude. Maybe it's time for the club to take a long look in the mirror. At the bullpen, at the starters, at the American League itself. Ya listening, Theo?
