Playing for Pride: Jays-Sox Gamer II

Well, since the playoffs are obviously of no interest to our beloved team, we exhort them to at least play for a little pride. Make it look fun, at least.

Chat about the worst team in baseball here, and the new, excruciating ways by which they will lose another game.

  • Y’know what?
    I’M FEELING IT TODAY!!! GO SOX!!!
    I actually feel like they’re gonna win the rest of this series and turn this train-wreck around.
    And as I type that, Gonzalez singles a run in followed quickly by Youkilis driving in the next with a double. 2nd and 3rd, none out, 2-0 Sox in the 1st.

  • …and in the “other” game, the “rangeless one” makes a nice play in the hole…

  • Ugh. Big pile of fail after the first five reach, as they can’t push anyone else across. 2-0 after 1.

  • Squander. Plugged and nobody out and nothing more. Terrible, somehow the Sox turn a good inning bad.

    SF April 16, 2011, 1:39 pm
  • I thought that maybe if I made a return it might help the Sox fortunes.

  • Yes, IBM!
    Meanwhile, the Sox continue to make baseball look like the hardest task on Earth.

  • they’ll beat toronto…it’s toronto…beckett’s dealing again

    dc April 16, 2011, 1:52 pm
  • That’s 6 SBs for Toronto in 11 innings against the Sox.

  • I’ve never seen anything like this. Never. And the only possible explanation to me is that the Sox just didn’t get enough work in during spring training. And even that seems like a stretch.

  • 2-1 after 1.5. Beckett strikes out the side, the last on a nice bender stranding a runner at 3rd, but the lead is cut in half.

  • Why isn’t Ells going here?

  • Free Jed Lowrie. 4-1.

    Devine April 16, 2011, 2:04 pm
  • Jed!

    SF April 16, 2011, 2:11 pm
  • And Man City just knocked United out of the FA Cup. So far so good today.

    SF April 16, 2011, 2:14 pm
  • Jed Lowrie. Tito’s a genius.

    I'mBillMcNeal April 16, 2011, 2:15 pm
  • No, he isn’t. He should have played sooner.

    SF April 16, 2011, 2:29 pm
  • Pedey has been awesome on D lately.

    SF April 16, 2011, 2:31 pm
  • Looking good, the start of a turnaround, come on SF, at least give them 30 or 40 games. The hits will eventually come, the pitching, besides Beckett, has me worried though.

    BrentY SF April 16, 2011, 4:01 pm
  • Yeah, I’m all out of positive vibes to dish out to the rivals.
    You could maybe find comfort in the fact that the rotation for our side will for the indefinite future be:
    -Sabathia
    -Burnett
    -Nova
    -Garcia
    -Colon
    So it’s one rock solid ace and then a whole lotta who knows the hell what.

  • “Tito’s a genius.”
    Said with tongue in cheek. (I also believe that Scutaro should be playing. Perhaps I’m a Scutaro apologist?)
    Let’s see a Bruins win tonight and then see if the Sox can make it 2 in a row tomorrow.

  • Tweet from Brian MacPherson of the ProJo:
    “Josh Beckett: 1.80 ERA. Rest of #RedSox pitching staff: 7.32 ERA.”
    YIKES!

    I'mBillMcNeal April 16, 2011, 5:22 pm
  • At this rate, the Sox would finish with 36-37 wins… 24-25 of them Beckett’s.

    Hudson April 16, 2011, 6:04 pm
  • Look at the ERA without Beckett and Lester…

    SF April 16, 2011, 6:43 pm
  • The return of Beckett is a huge boost for me, mentally. And only being 5.0 games back doesn’t sound too bad.
