Free Falling

Dustin Pedroia put the latest Boston Red Sox loss in a unique perspective...

“When you don’t show up to play, it doesn’t matter if you’re playing the Rays or fucking Brookline High School.”

Sure, I know injuries have played a big part of this current skid. Bill Hall has no business in left field but with Jacoby Ellsbury still out with painful ribs and, unfortunately, Mike Cameron again in the hospital with a resurgence of the same pain he had to endure when he had a kidney stone (they have ruled out another stone), someone will have to go on the disabled list for the Sox to be able to call someone up from Pawtucket. But they MUST play better baseball. Here's the skipper...

“Our concern is playing better,” manager Terry Francona said. “When we do that, we’ll all feel better about ourselves. You can look at it any way you want - early, late, middle, the divisions - we just need to play better baseball.”

He's right! That's all I want to type today. I'm a little down but I keep telling myself it's only a game. Maybe the Red Sox can WIN one, starting today against the Texas Rangers. Timmy Wakefield will try to make the seemingly impossible possible. As always, BE WELL. See ya.
