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 […]

July 17, 2014: Can We Start Playing Some Baseball, Please???

Believe it or not, I am actually ready for the 2nd half of the 2014 campaign to begin. Yes, despite the fact that the Sox have had MAJOR SUCKAGE in their first 95 games of the season. But they showed some life before the break, and if they can at least be fun and respectable […]

Red Sox 11, Astros 0: That’s it. I’m Checking for Pods…

OK. I know it’s the Astros, and before them the White Sox, and they suck, but seeing as the Sox probably haven’t been able to beat pretty much ANYONE as of late, the fact they have taken 2 out of 3 from BOTH teams, is kinds weird… Add to that the fact That Clay Person […]

Book Review: I Don’t Care if We Never Get Back, by Ben Blatt and Eric Brewster

We all have that one friend. The one we would follow to the end of the earth on whatever crazy scheme or adventure they came up with. Even though you promised after the park bench in Poughkeepsie incident (don’t ask), you would never, EVER, again, somehow they always seem to get you to agree to […]

Red Sox 6, Oreos 7, in 12: Well, at least they got one…

Holy hell… And I don’t mean the one win the Sox have managed to eke out in six games into this 10-game homestand. ONE. WIN. What I was talking about was that Jon Lester is the ONLY Red Sox player that was selected to be part of the All-Star Game. It is also expected that […]

Red Sox 1, Cubs 2: One. FRACKING. Run…

This loss is not Koji’s fault. Yes, he is tired. Yes he is nearly 40 years old. And despite the fact he is one of the premier closers in the game, things like this will happen. No, this is because in the last 3 games the Sox have scored 9 runs. Sounds pretty impressive, until […]
