  • Smoltz getting beat around again.

  • Winning 2 of 3 is nice and all, but it’s at home, it’s against a crap team, the bats still don’t really seem alive, and Jon Smoltz is sucking again.

  • There seems to be no plan at the plate. 52 pitches for Hernandez through 4.

    Markakis homers, 6-0. Ack.

  • Smoltz’s ERA now over 7.

  • Ok, so the Smoltz signing is looking like a Theo fail, the question is how long before Theo recognizes this.
    If the playoffs started today, this team would make a quick exit from the playoffs. How can anyone feel good about this team as currently configured?

  • Clearly, this Smoltz experiment had been a disappointment. But What do they have that would be a better option right now?
    If not Smoltz in this spot, who? Masterson? Bowden?

  • Smoltz is done. Masterson to take over in the 6th.

  • “Smoltz is done.”
    Yes.

  • Well, at least the more legitimate wild card threat (TB) lost.

    Devine July 26, 2009, 3:39 pm
  • “If not Smoltz in this spot, who?”
    Wakefield, ASAP, I figure. Not that that’s a ton of comfort, exactly.
    Well, Saito, Penny, and Baldelli have been functional. It would have been expected that one of the four “experiments” had worked out, and the Sox (thus far) have made good use of three of them.

  • Pedro doubles in a run, 6-2 now. Now if only the A’s can lose to the Yankees…

  • Geez, Ortiz misses a homer by 5 feet. Ugh.

  • What the Red Sox really need to get their engines firing on all cylinders again is to play a soft team — like the Yankees, say…

  • Yeah, that’s exactly what the Sox need: to play the hottest team in baseball right now. If Smoltz is getting hammered against the O’s, A’s and Nats, how would he do against a real team?
