Boston Red Sox Have Worst Record In MLB
This is getting very hard to take. Yet again, the Tampa Bays Rays defeated the deflated Boston Red Sox by a score of 3-2. It was a battle of aces and their ace, David Price, out pitched our ace, Jon Lester. Sox manager Tito Francona had this summation of what happened.
“We were facing one of the better guys in the league tonight, just like they were. We didn’t go into the game thinking we we’re going to knock him around the ballpark.”
They sure didn't! Jon Lester was asked this...what must the Red Sox do to turn their season around?
“We need a night like they had last night (Monday night). We need a night where we show up and just pound the baseball and we do everything right. We’re just not putting everything together. One night it’s the pitching. One night it’s the hitting. Some nights it’s both. Nothing right now is clicking for us.”
Jon, you're right on the money with your assessment. John Henry spent 161.4 million dollars for this kind of performance? I don't think that was his intent. The 2-9 start is totally shocking to every single member of Red Sox Nation, even one of the newest ones, Carl Crawford...
“Yes, it’s a little shocking. We definitely didn’t think we’d be in this position right now but since we are, we’ll just have to do what we have to do to get back on top. Yes, it’s a little shocking.’’
Hey Carl, I know you meant well but your/our team has never even had a share of first place except when all teams had a 0-0 record. A drastic turnaround starting today is highly necessary. The pitchers in the night game will be the so-far-woeful John Lackey ready to face Shields. It's a 7:10pm EDT Fenway Park start for the struggling Boston Red Sox. When they struggle, it seems as if I struggle. Sympathy pains? I have no idea but I want it to stop. NOW.
Thanks for stopping in on this Hump Day Wednesday, the day the slide to the weekend begins. Please click on this post's title for all the highlights you'd ever want and as always, BE WELL. 2-9? Let's turn it around, Boston. Now.
