In response to dustcover's comment:
19, yes NINETEEN freakin runners left on base. And fool that I am, I stayed up until the end of the game only to see old friend Coco Crisp slap one to the opposite field on a two strike pitch to knock in one of the TWO base runners on base by way of being hit by a pitch on consecutive at bats with the score tied in the bottom of the 8th inning.
What a novel idea. Protect the plate with two strikes and hit to the opposite field.
19 runners stranded on base. What a debacle.
I'm not sure how much more of this I can take!
Were you living under a rock? Didn't you know that from day one this team freakin stinks!! Are posters on here that shallow minded that they just don't get it? From Spring training the sox were just plan awful ? Dam! wake up people and smell the stink................
I think it was late March or early April tht my post "apathetic" appeared. That's no longer the case which, now, can be called "incompetent". They started the night against a suspect pitcher, with 4 RH hitters in the lineup. Meanwhile a kid named Betts has proven HE CAN HIT, so why are they waiting? Do they really think he won 't be ble to handle the pressure? I'm not saying he's the total answer, but surely Gomes, Napoli & Co. aren't! I think we can call this group, as a whole, the "called strike one" gang.
Because if he flops they are afraid of the ramifications of the media burying them in bad press.
