Another Weekend, Another Sweep.......

You want some ugly numbers? There are so many to choose from. But here ya go. The Red Sox have lost 11 of 14 and have won only six times in the last twenty three games. For the first six games of the road trip, they are 2-4 and are hitting only .188. Stunning numbers. Ugly but they tell us so much. And the injury list has mounted too. Manny is day to day to day. Jon Lester's back has been bothering him ever since he was rear ended in a car accident in Boston. He saw the doctor while the club was in the Seattle area. So was anyone out there surprised when the Mariners scored 5 runs in their half of the fifth? Or was anyone startled as the Sox swung helplessly while collecting only 2 hits? The bottom of the barrel is in sight. Right in front of us.
So it's on to Oakland for three before a Wednesday trip home just in time to be the hosts of the tough on us Toronto Blue Jays. For four. At Fenway. But let's not get ahead of ourselves. It's time to dig in and stop this slide into mediocrity. It's gotten to be plain old bad baseball. All around. Every facet of every game. Everytime.
