Red Sox 11, Tampa Bay 3: One…More…Game…

So right now, the Sox have the exact same number of wins as they did during the abysmal season that was 2012. They need to win one more over their next 4 to better that. While 70 wins is certainly NOTHING to be proud of (22 win UNDER.500–crappy doesn’t even BEGIN to cover that […]

Red Sox 3, Oreos 2: Yeah, it doesn’t matter, but it matters…

It matters because it’s one step closer to having a better record (even if it’s by one stinking game) than the Bobby Valentine Debacle of 2012… It matters because the Sox have won far too few series, scored far too few runs, and did far too FEW of a lot of things in the 2014 […]

Red Sox 1, Pirates 9: A Struggling Clay Buchholz, How Shocking!

Yeah, Yeah, I know, some people were lulled into that sense of security that happens when That Clay Person strings together a couple of decent to brilliant outings…AGAIN. “He’s on the right path!” “He’s finally going to be the guy he is destined to be!” Blah Blah Blah…And then he crashes and burns…AGAIN. And last […]

Red Sox 6, Oreos 10: Waiting for the shoe…

Wait for it… And…There it is… Out with a whimper, not even a final death throe… What am I talking about, you might ask? Well, with today’s loss, the Sox are “officially”out of postseason contention. Their “magic number” for a Wild Card Berth was at 1 after last night’s loss. And they checked out in […]

Red Sox 3, Tampa Bay 4, in the 11th: A Split…

Watched very little baseball this weekend. I just can’t anymore. Even when they win, it just seems…pointless. And when you are 19.5 GB in your division (and, painfully, 6.5 GB the team in 4th place in your division), I guess it kinda is… My friend Steve actually deleted the MLB App from his phone, and […]

Red Sox 11, Toronto 7: Uh, What just happened?

Last night’s contest has to be one of the WEIRDEST ones on record for the Sox in recent memory. And considering what a fracked up season this has been, that is saying something… This one started normally enough. Sort of. The Sox scored 3 off R. A. Dickey in the 1st inning, and then Rubby […]

Red Sox 6, Mariners 8: Just When You Think They’ve Hit Rock Bottom…

You discover that rock bottom has subbasements. LOTS of them… So that makes EIGHT games in a row, including 2 sweeps. Of course, they had a chance in all of these contests–well, OK, maybe the one where they were almost no-hit A-GAIN they didn’t, but holy hell KOJI with 2 outs in the 9th on […]

Red Sox 0, Angels 2: One Hit. AGAIN…

So. How many IS that this year? 4? 6? An even dozen? I don’t have the time or inclination to slog through the 2014 campaign looking for the instances where the opposing pitcher no-hit the Red Sox for a bunch of innings, and then someone steps up and saves their collective bacon from the indignity. […]

Red Sox 3, Angels 4: On…and on…and on…

Yeah, I know the Angels are the best team in baseball, on pace to win 96-ish games this season–but holy hell it feels like they have been in Boston for MONTHS kicking the ever loving crap out of them. Honestly, I had to look and see exactly how many games the Sox have lost in […]

Red Sox 1, Astros 8: The Shoe is on the Other Foot…

Remember how I/we used to bitch that the Sox needed to do better against horribly crappy teams, as there was no reason why these teams should be beating them? Well guess what, OUR team is now the crappy team…

Red Sox 3, Cincinnati 2: Enough with the Interleague play already…

Call me a purist, but AL should old play NL twice a year: The All-Star game, and the World Series. And then there was the 2-3 week period in the middle of the season where the Sox played 4-5 National League teams and THAT was bad enough. NOW, they play a couple here, and a […]

Red Sox 2, Cardinals 3: Yeah…

I don’t even know what to say anymore. They take a step forward, and 32 steps back… This was a contest that was completely winnable. Rubby De La Rosa had a good outing, giving up 1 run on 6 hits while walking and striking out 3. He threw 94 pitches, 57 for strikes. Then Tommy […]

Red Sox 7, Skanks 8: Yeah, that’s about right…

Well, so much for rising to the occasion. Not that anyone really expected him to. As a matter of fact, after last week’s trade someone asked Buchholz something about him being the anchor to a young pitching staff and how he felt about that. And his response was about how he FELT good and healthy. […]

August 1, 2014: Well, THAT was Interesting…

Don’t even know where to begin really…and I am kind of all over the map, so this is probably going to be more incoherent than usual… Quite a fruitful day in the Fens yesterday, where Ben Cherington traded every starting pitcher NOT named Buchholz…Jon Lester–Gone. John Lackey–Gone. Felix Doubront–Gone. Andrew Miller–Gone. And the Sox also […]

July 31, 2014: Strike Out Hunger– Red Sox Wives team up with The Greater Boston Food Bank this Weekend

To help end hunger in the Bay State, the Red Sox Wives are teaming up with The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB) for the 23rd annual Strike Out Hunger fundraiser this weekend at Fenway Park. Over the past two decades, the Red Sox Wives and fans have raised nearly $290,000 to help GBFB feed those […]

Red Sox 1, Toronto 14: Is This What Rock Bottom Feels Like?

Yes, this is gonna be a cranky rant, because right now I am so aggravated I want to SPIT… Because, honestly, I am not sure how much worse it can get. And I know, I shouldn’t say that, because the Sox will now rattle off a 22 game LOSING streak and end up with a […]

Red Sox 3, Tampa Bay 2: The Definition of Insanity…

Unfortunately, THAT seems to be the best way to sum up our beloved Red Sox this year. They keep doing the same things over and over, and expect a different result. And while it works just fine when things are going your way, obviously when it doesn’t. It doesn’t… So the Sox won 1 out […]

Red Sox 4, Toronto 6, Red Sox 0, Toronto 8: And….that’s a wrap…

A lot of us tried. Really. We thought they could turn it around. Even those of us who KNEW it was going to be a VERY hard road to get back to the top of the AL East (even if the division is the suckiest it’s been in a very long time), they had pulled […]

Red Sox 3, Toronto 7: Yep, I think it’s time to call it a day…

And now Jake Peavy has fallen to 1-9 on the season, he ONLY win was in April, and he has the worst ERA of all starters in the American League East (4.72). And while the Sox have been played VERY well in the last 2 weeks, the 2 games they have lost in that 10-game […]

Red Sox 14, Toronto 1: This is MADNESS…

So. For first 90 or so games, the 2014 permutation of the Boston Red Sox were playing like my grandmother’s softball league (if she actually ever had a softball league..), where it looked like they needed an act of congress to score any runs, much less actually WIN a game… And then they DFA, and […]
