Jenks, Wheeler Sent Down By Red Sox...Angels Pulverize Boston 11-0

This is from WEEI sports, just in...

"The Red Sox will place relievers Dan Wheeler and Bobby Jenks on the disabled list prior to Thursday's game against the Angels in order to clear roster spots for right-hander Scott Atchison (recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket) and left-hander Rich Hill (selected from Pawtucket). The moves come at a time when the Sox bullpen is running on fumes after handling the final 8 2/3 innings of Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Angels."

Neither relief pitcher has been effective and Atchison is a proven commodity. We'll see what happens but it has to be better than Thursday night at Fenway Park. This one is going to be tough to write about so I'll make it brief and semi-painless...

Rock bottom, at least for one game. It seems that every time this season Boston gets to within one game of .500 baseball, they start losing. Last night was no exception. It was more like an abomination. An abortion. A brutal murder full of blood on the body and the surrounding area. You see, the Angels, winners of two straight, blew out the Red Sox by a score of 11-0. It's wasn't even THAT close!

Two tired teams took the field Thursday afternoon and both were probably happy the game again didn't go into extra innings. But it was ugly, and the ugliness started with John Lackey, a guy I have nothing to say about right now. Final score? Yes, sadly it was 11-0. Here's Lackey...

“My lack of execution and my lack of pitching well definitely hurt that morale or whatever you want to call it.’’

Boston starts another four game set, this time with the Twinkies. Here's everything you need to know...

Fri. 6 Min 7:10 PM ET FxNo/NESN** T. Wakefield (0-0) vs. S. Baker (1-2)
Sat. 7 Min 1:10 PM ET FOX** C. Buchholz (2-3) vs. B. Duensing (2-1)
Sun. 8 Min 1:35 PM ET FxNo/NESN** D. Matsuzaka (2-3) vs. C. Pavano (2-3)
Mon. 9 Min 7:10 PM ET ESPN/NESN** J. Lester (4-1) vs. F. Liriano (2-4)

I'm not overly confident but I will always support the Boston Red Sox. Always. Have a great Friday and weekend, click on this post's title for a video with more on last night's debacle and as always, BE WELL. Thanks.

Yesterday hurt. A lot. And the Yankees next week. Hmm. This is turning out to be a weird season.
