Refugee: Rangers-Sox Gamer II

Ryan Dempster gets his second career start on the junior circuit since coming over from the Cubs at the trade deadline. Epstein gave up who was by far and away the Cubs best starter for decent-hitting minor-league third-base sieve Christian Villanueva and right-handed back-end prospect Kyle Hendricks, no doubt just so that Texas would beat Boston on this day.. or something. Jon Lester pitched well in a loss to Minnesota his last time out, going eight innings while giving up only three earned. Comment away.

  • Wednesday afternoon slugfest at Fenway. Just as I was about to mention how pathetic this team is Will Middlebrooks ties the game at 9-9 with a three run shot into the monster seats.

    Still might find a way to lose, though.

  • Though he’s been good, Mortenson probably should not have come out for the 9th.

  • According to the Globe Mortenson held the lead in the top of the 8th, quite a feat in a game that was tied at 9.

  • Beltre sac fly gives Rangers the lead again.

    Can’t blame BV for all those injuries, but his managing of the pitching staff leaves a lot to be desired.

  • This is an awesome race when you don’t have a horse in it.

  • Gonzalez, Ross, Middlebrooks coming up in the bottom of the 9th. More Middlebrooks Magic?

  • The irrational fan in me keeps hoping, my rational better half tells me that this season is irrevocably lost.

  • See? A-Gon pops it up …

  • Cody Ross teasing us with a one-out double.

  • Middlebrooks strikes out.

  • Lavernway up.

    pale blue eyes August 8, 2012, 5:05 pm
  • 0-2.

  • Lavarnway will drink free for a year with a single.

  • Ouch.. tough one for the fans.

  • K. Game over.

    Another tough loss. Terrible homestand. Season over. Time to park Josh Beckett on the 60-day DL.

  • And Mortenson who pitched great gets tagged with the loss because our idiot manager left him in too long.

  • There’s your season. What a trainwreck.
