Great Pitching, No Big Hits Equals .500 Baseball

Mediocrity ruled yet again yesterday at Fenway Park. One run crossed the plate safely for the home team. One lone run. Josh Beckett was impeccable, Timlin was just fine, but the Boston Red Sox just couldn't come up with a clutch hit. The Totonto Blue Jays defeated the Sox 2-1. That's right, another 2-1 game. For the Sox to remain in first place through the month of September, they cannot play .500 baseball any longer. It's literally sickening! And the Yankees are now single digits back. The less I say about Sunday's game, the better, but the Sox have come out of the All Star break splitting four games with those Jays. Simply, that is NOT ACCEPTABLE. No way, no how.

KC comes to Fenway for three games starting today. Anything other than a sweep is another indication that this team needs another hitter, or another hitting coach. I do not get it. The good news? It looks like we'll see Schill back within 10 days. But all the pitching in the world can't help a team that scores one damn run.

The Boston Herald's Tony Massarotti hits the Red Sox nail squarely on the head with his Monday morning article. Click on the title. Needed reading!

Our bats in yesterday's game were about as bad as you can think of, but I still think that the offense will get rolling & yesterday will be the exception to the norm. If the team can peak at the right time, this mediocre stuff won't matter much.

I was hoping we could win all 3 of these homestand matchups before going on the road next week, but I'll change that to not losing any. A sweep of KC would be great, but they've been playing better as of late and 2 of 3 wouldn't be all that bad.

BFW, hey! I know...a frustrating Sunday experience! 2 of 3 from KC, in my eyes, would be a defeat. But with Javy going in one of the three, your comment makes too much sense. Enjoy this Monday Monday.

P.S. Six plus weeks of mediocrity is way too much .500 ness.

Allright Bob's Discount Furniture (lol). And in the 8th inning, it looks like the Sox are off on the right foot to sweep KC!

Schill keeps shaking his head "no" vigorously tonight, as they pan the camera over to him while he's talking to others in the dugout. Wonder what that's all about...

C, I saw...and KG IS ready for our rotation. When Schil comes back, Tavy will have to step aside!
