Surely football talk has to be more interesting than our baseball team.
Here we go again. Pena home run. 2-0 Rays. Longoria’s double maybe was catchable.
A quick inning for Lester after the home run.
It seems like the Yankees and Red Sox have switched roles this season. Everything clicking for the Yankees early on, nothing clicking for the Red Sox.
Just remember there’s pretty much all of the season left. The Yankees have started off 4-7 (or worse) and came back to win 95 games with relative ease plenty of times.
Back to back walks from Lester and Zobrist brings them home. 4-0 Rays.
And Zobrist steals 2nd. Not a bad throw from Varitek but (as always with Sox pitchers) not good enough.
Sox catchers I meant, of course. Though one could well apply the not good enough to Sox pitchers as well right now.
Another easy inning for Garza who – I have to say it this early – has a no-hitter going. Why can the Red Sox not hit this guy? Others can …
Very good inning from Lester this time. How about some runs, guys?
Garza walks Scutaro and is no longer perfect.
GIDP by Victor Martinez. Garza still has faced only the minimum.
Beltre breaks up the no-no and promptly gets thrown out at second in trying to go for a double. Stoopid.
April-Lester strikes again: home run B.J. Upton, 6-0 Rays. All those of you who are not here, you’re doing the right thing.
This sucks to watch.
No a double to Willie Aybar, him of the 0.71 average.
Gabe “The Flash” Kapler beats out a double play. Third double play the Sox have not turned today.
Red Sox turn a double play. Turning point!!!
Not much pitching.
Papelbon’s wife gave birth this weekend, to a boy named “Gunner.” I’m usually not the one to judge what someone names their offspring, but… seriously? Gunner?
so is today’s post going to be titles: avoiding the patriot’s day broom?
it’s not that they’re losing – it’s the way their losing. Cameron, Scutaro and Beltre (to an extent, I’ll give him a pass because he has made some excellent defensive plays) have let seemingly routine and catchable balls not turn into outs.
