My Kingdom for Some Runs: Sox-Reds Gamer I

The last time the Sox scored more than 4?  That was 9 days ago, August 3rd against the Yankees.  The Red Sox lost 8-7.  Before that?  July 21st, winning 14-1 against the Jays.  Three weeks ago.  It’s not been fun to watch this offense.

But the Sox did just win a series for the first time since sweeping KC just after the ASB (and just before the 14-1 game, when dreams of an insane run to the playoffs were not utterly farfetched, just incredibly unlikely).  Perhaps they can show some fight in this 2-game set at an NL park.  Kelly, recently acquired from the Cardinals for the price of a Series-winning show pony, is used to having a bat in his hands.  Maybe he can make the difference against Latos.  Doubtful…and anyway, perhaps we should be rooting for losses for the sake of a higher spot in the draft…but I can never quite bring myself to do that.  Comment if you’re up for it.

  • PS I am fucking BUMMED that Robin Williams died. I don’t usually care about celebrity deaths, but it sucks he was in so much pain and if he could only see the outpouring of love/appreciation since…

  • Cespedes going yard one pitch after Broxton’s chin music to hit a go-ahead 2-out, 2-run homer in the 8th…a great moment, maybe the best moment of the season. Still can’t score many though.
