    Abraham is the best

    He's of course much better than anyone on this blog site, which these days is mostly just plain bellyaching.

    What he's good at is trenchant commentary backed up by pretty dramatic statistics. 

    Today, for example, he points out just how bad the starting pitching is.  In the last 18 starts, the starters have produced just two good starts, which account for two Sox wins.  In the other two wins, he goes on, the Sox scored 18 runs in each game. 

    Almost every day he produces some pretty good prose that contains very good insights backed by good research.  While he doesn't condemn management, he does point out faults that are the result of less than perfect general management and/or game management.

    You must be getting paid to do this.  No one could be as misanthropic as this in their spare time.

    He is fantastic. Tells it like it is. I've even emailed him and he was kind enough to email back. Not like the other writers who always throw softballs to Mr. Francona.

    Quality start is overrated. Beckett pitched 6.1 quality innings, but team could not put game away against one of the worst pitching staffs in MLB.

    Beckett pitched into the 8th and gave up 6 runs.  Yes, he could have come out earlier, but, with Papelbon and Bard now on the "can't be relied upon" list, one can understand Francona wanting him to go back out there in the 8th. 

    The hitting has something to answer for because they still have problems with RISP and just plain getting on base in the later innings, 7-9. 

    But the root cause of this backwards slide is starting pitching, and in September neither Beckett nor Lester has been a rock of Gibraltar.  Lackey and company have of course been pretty awful.
