Already behind in the 1st. Robertson with a 2-run homer.


#3

Sale just can’t piece it together :frowning:


#4

Sale looking better at least.


#5

Not just Sale. Nobody can piece it together. They are broken and I don’t know what it will take to fix them.


#6

5-2 Rays on top. Last chance for Sox. Rally cap on.


#7

Rally cap off.
Paper bag on.
:grin:


#8

Another loss. Good times. Ugh


#9

I didn’t panic after 14 games, and I won’t panic after 28.

If we reach, say, Game 56 and the Red Sox are still fighting over the cellar position with the Orioles (or whoever) … then I will panic.


#10

Fair point. Still lots of baseball left. But damn. It’s frustrating


#11

111 pitches for Sale. That was a bit high, no?


#12

Oh, I’m not panicking, just disappointed is all. Pete Abe recently used the word “desultory” in a Tweet and I had never heard the term so I looked it up. Pretty much sums up the season so far, IMO.

Heh. Desultory is an 80’s death metal band. They are actually pretty good. These Sox. Not so much.


#14

It will be the death of the season if they do not pop their heads out f their asses!!!


#15

Actually, given the “desultory” definition, the Red Sox need to pull their heads out of their half-asses.
