This team won 7 games in a row once. Of course, that was immediately after they lost 10 in a row.
The Richards-Buchholz matchup we see today is the one that brought us the 19-inning game. This time, the Sox should be put out of their misery long before they have to play 2-plus games’ worth of innings. I mean, I guess I hope they win. But hoping seems a pointless, maddening endeavor watching this team’s utterly worthless offense. Against a good pitcher? Thanks, I’ll re-read an Agatha Christie mystery. They don’t tend to get ruined by Mike Trout homering over everything or tripling into the triangle.
