There is no other way to describe our team right now. Another chance to play non-awful baseball presents itself today against a truly terrible pitcher in James McDonald. Andrew Miller throws for the Sox.

Two balls hit hard to start, only a single for Pedroia. He promptly steals second, so Gonzo has a RBI opp in front of him.
SF June 26, 2011 at 1:39 pm
I hate interleague play so much.
SF June 26, 2011 at 1:41 pm
I know the Sox have excelled at this, but I really am ao sick or this, it is a gimmick.
National League teams get to bench their worst hitter in our parks, in their parks we to bench one of our best. Total nonsense.
SF June 26, 2011 at 1:43 pm
Gonzo reaches on an infield single. Youk up with one out, 1/3.
Youk loops one to third. More awful baseball.
SF June 26, 2011 at 1:44 pm
Now it is up to should-be-retiree JD Drew.
Drew stares at strike three.
No words for how bad this team is again. Come back, Bruins. Take me away from these bums.
SF June 26, 2011 at 1:46 pm
Youk throws one away on a bunt single. Nice job fellas!
Fucking AAA baseball right now.
SF June 26, 2011 at 1:50 pm
Tabata goes down like a horse shot at the track after that bunt. Taken off on a stretcher. Hope he is ok, he almost appeared to be crying. Bad muscle tear or something?
SF June 26, 2011 at 1:54 pm
Reddick with a nice grab and nearly doubles the runner of first all the way from left.
SF June 26, 2011 at 1:57 pm
5 LOB thru three and nothing useful with men in scoring position. Keep it up, nothing more fun to watch than this!
SF June 26, 2011 at 2:29 pm
And now Reddick drops a pop up. Unreal.
Time to turn this off. I don’t put up with watching terrible tv programming, don’t see why I should have to watch this pitiful excuse for baseball.
SF June 26, 2011 at 2:34 pm
Salty continuing to justify, at least on the offensive side, not signing Russell Martin.
SF June 26, 2011 at 2:40 pm
Salty tags on a fly to center, the throw is airmailed and ends up in the stands off the glove of the third baseman. 1-0 Sox.
SF June 26, 2011 at 2:42 pm
Nunez: 9 errors
Fuck you, Eduardo.
Remember the days when we had not great players on the bench, but “toolsy ones”. Now…yeesh.
What I’m trying to say is this: Let’s bring back Luis Sojo.
DustyDrB - YF June 26, 2011 at 2:58 pm
The team the Sox have fielded the last few days, on offense and pitching, will win jack shit. So hopefully this isn’t the team they field day in and day out. If it is I won’t be watching much baseball the rest of the year.
Unbearably horrendous play by the team. We pray it is just a small odd sample, but doubts creep in.
SF June 26, 2011 at 3:23 pm
nunez quickly making us forget the captain’s lack of range…6 errors all of last year…
“…Salty continuing to justify, at least on the offensive side, not signing Russell Martin….”
yep…salty closed that gap nicely, though we still might be guilty of using small sample sizes, which was something the yf’s were criticized for when crowing about martin’s early success…i assume also that you might not be as pleased with salty’s defense as you are his offense when you say “at least”…i’d also be concerned about the rumors that he has no game rapport with beckett…but yep, point well taken…we yf’s should put a lid on the martin is better than salty stuff for awhile, despite his WAR being 0.9, while salty’s is at 0.4…

After a refreshing jaunt to the park, back to the masochism. Scutaro walks on four pitches, Papi strides to the plate as a pinch hitter.
SF June 26, 2011 at 3:48 pm
Not only is this a terrible ballgame, having to listen to the Pirates announcers makes it even worse. These guys are incredibly cocky considering their team has not had a winning season since around the presidency of Bush the Elder.
pale blue eyes June 26, 2011 at 3:52 pm
Papi with no BABIP luck. He destroys one that must have been barely foul. Out of the park entirely. Then he walks.
SF June 26, 2011 at 3:55 pm
Bases loaded, nobody out. One run please, at least.
pale blue eyes June 26, 2011 at 3:56 pm
Ellsbury tries to sacrifice and the pitcher won’t let him. Error on the hurler, bases filled nobody out and Pedey coming up. Can’t ask for a better scenario.
SF June 26, 2011 at 3:56 pm
There’s one. Now Adrian …
pale blue eyes June 26, 2011 at 4:01 pm
And they walk Adrian. Up to Youk now to extend the lead.
pale blue eyes June 26, 2011 at 4:02 pm
And Papi motors home on Youk’s sacrifice fly. A sight to behold.
pale blue eyes June 26, 2011 at 4:04 pm
Ground ball and a sac fly make it 4-2.
SF June 26, 2011 at 4:05 pm
Question of the afternoon: what will be a bigger mess, my kitchen after I make homemade pasta (about to begin) or the Sox’ bullpen?
SF June 26, 2011 at 4:06 pm
Darnell pops up a total meatball. The right field situation is pretty dire for the Sox at the moment.
SF June 26, 2011 at 4:09 pm
Well, give me Drew over MacDonald (or Cameron, for that matter) anytime. A pity that Kalish is still recovering from his shoulder injury.
pale blue eyes June 26, 2011 at 4:10 pm
No mess from Aceves at all in the 7th.
pale blue eyes June 26, 2011 at 4:18 pm
Bard unmessy too. Hope Papelbon isn’t too rusty.
pale blue eyes June 26, 2011 at 4:31 pm
McDonald leaves three more. Up to Paps now.
pale blue eyes June 26, 2011 at 4:47 pm
Papelbon walks the lead-off hitter on four pitches. Obviously plans another Houdini act. Hope it works out.
pale blue eyes June 26, 2011 at 4:51 pm
1-10 RISP, 10 LOB.
SF June 26, 2011 at 4:53 pm
Paps gets it done. Sweep avoided. It was ugly, but we’ll take it.
pale blue eyes June 26, 2011 at 4:57 pm
Negativity works. Sox win.
SF June 26, 2011 at 4:57 pm
taking lessons from krueg sf? ;)
dc June 27, 2011 at 9:09 am
Yeah, I had a bee in my bonnet yesterday. Losing four straight to the Padres and Pirates will do that to you.
