@Joe Nation,
Maybe more apt - boreball, Joe.

@JTT,
If you have an animus against baseball, JTT, that is surely your right and exclusively your business. I, for example, never watch tennis matches or golf games. And I never make a single comment on any thread that deals with such sports. What's the point? More importantly, what's your point?

That's pretty cool, Merry.

Typically thick Merry, Merry. You've missed my point?

@Joe Nation,
My deepest sympathies, Joe.

I'm old enough to remember when the NYPost was considered a left-of-center very liberal and quite cogent newspaper. <sigh>

@Lustig Andrei,
Apparently, that's where the money and profits were back then. So this is a present-day sign of the times (not NYT).

those damn Yankees are doing their best to rain on your parade.

7 runs and counting in the seventh inning...

@Rockhead,
Gawd that sucked! How to turn flowers into garbage.

That was one game should be quickly forgotten.

@Ragman,
I console myself with this thought: in my experience, if the Sox start off a season with debacles like that, their tendency is to improve and come up strong by playoff time. If they begin the season like a championship team, they fizzle in the final stretch. I think that's how it's been historically. So maybe the losses to the Yankees early on presages a good season ahead.

Okay, okay. I know I'm a cockeyed optimist.

@Lustig Andrei,
I know what your saying. I've seen season starts that are bad like this one. How this one differs is in the 'stink-osity' of this start. They looked like they were going to nail down one of those lopsided confidence-builders yesterday, but it turnerd into the exact opposite.

I'll assume the current management team (even without dearly departed Theo) is as strong management team. I figure in the next 2 weeks or month there'll be some big pitching staff changes. Luckily the AL East has made a very mediocre start, too.

At least their team defense is at or near the top of the league. The hitting will come around. Sure wish Crawford was all rehabbed and back in the lineup, though.

@Region Philbis,
yeah no surprise on manny -

Cute that Trot Nixon's little boy had his first little league game.

Curt is surprising and not so - I don't doubt this was an excuse - but it would have been nice for the fans to see him.

@Linkat,
Curt is king of loose canons, rightly or wrongly about issues. He also was very outspoken and made big enemies with a few of the other high profile players (steroid issues and many other public hot buttons). His absence was telltale and was felt. It seems from his comments that it was not intentional. Apparently he had a schedule conflict re his video gaming business.

Quote from Curt on his absence from Fenway's 100th anniversary celebration:

"Some of Schilling’s recent comments have been poorly received by Josh Beckett and Bobby Valentine, but this looks more like a simple scheduling conflict than anything else."

re: the recent debacle~

Quote:
For the game, the Red Sox bullpen ERA for the game was a staggeringly horrendous 42.00 ERA, pushing their collective season ERA to a major-league worst 8.44 .


I've got it! Just like batter's like to try swinging opposite of their normal to become switch hitters, the bullpen pitchers should start throwing with their opposite arms.

Alternating after every homerun. Twisted Evil
