Surveying the Wreckage: Sox-Rays Gamer I

Losing all 3 to the Rangers in Arlington was one thing. Losing 5 of 7 to Minnesota and Toronto at home is plain unacceptable.

So May has been unkind, but still, 2 GB of the division leaders and 1 of the first wild card, and holding the second wild card spot. Given the expectations of the pre-season, I think we’re pretty happy with that on May 14th, even if April got us excited.

So they’re neither as good as they were in April, nor as bad as they’ve been in May. How good are they? Only September knows.

Unkind matchup for the Sox with Lackey (whose sparkling ERA belies his utter implosion for four unearned runs against Minnesota in his last start…he threw a surefire double play ball into center field, it was ugliness: ugly dude, ugly play) against Matt Moore, having a heck of a start to the season. Tampa Bay just crept above .500 (and the upcoming Indians have been boiling hot recently). It’s hard to do well in the AL.

Comment if you’re feeling it.

  • Lackey in trouble in the 4th. No outs, 2nd/3rd, 1 run in already. Fucking suuuuuuuper-cheap check swing double to left for Luke Fucking Scott to score the first run for tuberculosis.

  • Tied on a single to center by Molina. Man, I hate everything.

  • Two runs score on a goddamn pop single to the catwalk with 2 out that no one can fucking catch. FUCK THIS! I’M FUCKING OUT!

  • This sox team has to make some changes.
    You simply cannot let this many guys be bouncing around the Mendoza line and not do anything about it.
    Also, playing Ellsbury today would be a mistake.
