Red Sox: The End Is Nigh?

A huge comeback for the Yanks; a big blown lead for the Sox. Did we see the story of this division race writ small in yesterday’s results? We’re inclined to think that might very well be the case. The Sox have allowed 67 runs in their last 10 games. That can’t inspire confidence in Beantown. Look out above.

  • God forbid I should have started a thread like this, I can imagine the derision, criticism thrown my way. Regardless, last night’s Sox effort was horrid, exposing all their weaknesses in one tedious package.
    On the other hand, the Yankees miracle did nothing but shroud their own flaws in an emotional win. They were, after all, behind at home against the Royals in the ninth after a shaky effort by Jaret Wright. I wouldn’t be betting on either of these teams as currently composed.

  • Speaking of complaints, we wonder about this Yankee lineup. We wonder if Matsui is much of an improvement over Bernie in center. And we really question putting Matsui in the two slot, given Giambi’s return to horrid form of late. We’d much rather see this: Jetes, Lawton, Sheff, A-Rod, Matsui, Bernie, Giambi, Jorge, Cano. But that’s just us.

  • Horrid form? We take it all back!

  • And again! Hit 1500. We meant torrid. With a T.

  • If I had to bet, neither the Sox nor the Yanks will make the World Series this year.
    But I think the Sox can take the Yanks if both make the ALCS. The Sox’s weaknesses are slighly less than the Yanks’ in a head-to-head matchup, and I don’t think the Sox pitching can stay this bad for long.

  • Super-Duper torrid.
    Congrats to DJ on his 100th run scored.

  • YF in all his strategic cluelessness, summarized in his own, signed comments in a matter of minutes. We revel in the easy provenance of his idiocy.
    Suffice it to say I’m not feeling too obligated to explain away my own intermittent strategic frustrations with Francona, and it’s clear that I am certainly not the only disheveled and amateurish armchair bench coach at this site.

  • I think Lawton may make his way up to the 2 slot. They may just be giving him a little time to get his feet wet in NY.

  • Not sure what is worse: watching the Sox bullpen on any given day, or watching “Diddy” perform at tonight’s MTV music awards…

    SF August 28, 2005, 8:09 pm
  • “Diddy” is the answer to any “What is worse?” question?

    Nick August 28, 2005, 8:16 pm
  • Agreed.

  • ?=.

  • I don’t know anyone over the age of about 14 who watches the MTV Awards anymore. This explains a lot about the quality of writing from the Sox fans’ side of the fence.
