    Back to early April?

    All it takes to have a big losing streak is lousy pitching.  Tonight marks three in a row, two of them against the ice cold White Sox--at least, until our Sox breathed new life back into them.  Chicago could leave Fenway believing they are world beaters.

    I pegged the WhiteSox to win their division.
    They are better than their record shows.

    Perhaps the great Wake/Aceves debate has been answered.

    Phil Humber is having an excellent year - and yes the Red Sox are losing more than winning lately.

    Red sox just can't beat white sox. Last year, they lost 5 out of seven, I believe.

    Re: Back to early April?

    its really pretty obvious, we lack quality starting pitching depth and cannot hit off of good pitchers. Our hitters beat up on crappy pitching lately and once we started to face good pitchers we struggle. same problem as last year. We have one hitter on our team who opposing pitchers fear. Youk is not a feared hitter but is a good one. gonzo is our only feared hitter. we are still lacking that 3/4 punch in the middle of our order that we had with ortiz/manny. we have gonzo but we need the other half. There are 2 things that all world series winning teams have in common, 1) consistant quality starting pitching and 2) consistant clutch hitting. We currently have neither of those 2 things. we have 3 good pitchers but the other 2 suck and we have an offense which mainly consists of slap hitters, craps hitters, 2 good hitters, and one masher. Our rotation has 3 good pitchers only 1 of which has been consistantly good(beckett). Buchholz has pitched better lately but lester has turned in 4 poor starts in his last 5. Dice k might need tj surgery and lackey has been brutal. If dice is indeed done for the year which essentially ends his redsox career we will need another starter. we could give doubront a shot but if we expect to make the playoffs then we cannot stick with wakefield for the rest of the season. It is only a matter of time before opposing teams start teeing off on him. Back to april is exactly what came to mind after tonights loss. The same problems back again. No hitting, pitching is inconsistant, and we are stranding runners in scoring position. Crawford is back to not hitting, drew is still being his usual unproductive self, salty is batting somewhere around .220, pedroia is still trying to get going, lowrie is coming back down to earth and is barely batting over .300 now. Thankfully we are getting some guys back mainly in the pen and soon bums like atchison will get sent back down.

    Re: Back to early April?

    Wow.  The team just won 28-40.  Then we lost the second half of a DH at Det against Verlander, lost a game where we got very little rest after the DH, and then lost with our #7 SP.  Y'all need to step away from the microscope.

    Re: Back to early April?

    its not that every loss is the end of the world, its more that rsn gets frustrated when the same crap keeps happening over and over again and the same problems continue to plague the sox and its frustrating that nothing is being done about it. The FO puts same team on the field and expects different results. Sox fans pay top dollar to go see games, to buy merchandise, etc and expect to see a team that is competitive night in and night out. Not a team that misses the playoffs a year ago and then starts 2-10 this year and is now just hovering above .500 a third of the way into the season. Its frustrating when it looks like the team has turned the corner and is playing as well as it should be and then before  you know it does a 360 at starts playing like the team that started 2-10. Its frustrating when your manager continues to play unproductive veterans over young players who may actually contribute to the team. These are the reasons why RSN reacts the way it does.

    Re: Back to early April?

    The game on Monday was rather frusterating.  The White Sox kept getting weak hit after weak hit.  Last night was just a beat down.  I'd like to see more consistency out of this team.

    Re: Back to early April?

    redsoxpride34,

    My point was that you are only as good as your next starting pitcher.  Beckett wasn't half bad in Detroit, but Verlander was tougher--and threw the most pitches he's ever thrown in a game.  Then Lester got bombed and now Aceves.  By the weak hitting White Sox. 

    My strong impression last night was that Humber threw a lot of strikes and especially a lot of first pitch strikes.  Thus the Sox "system" of being patient at the plate was partly self-defeating because for most of the night Humber was throwing with a pitcher's count.  Aceves, on the other hand, was not throwing first pitch strikes--nor was Lester Monday night. 

    AGon is not the only hitter in the lineup.  Like everyone else, I love watching him play, but he's the one who struck in the 9th with a man on base and the possibility (only that) of a tie.    Ellsbury probably has the best stats of any leadoff hitter in the AL:  3d in doubles, 4th in hits, 4th in runs scored, 1st in SBs.  Youk and Ortiz have both been hitting well.  Pedroia, Drew, and Crawford have struggled for most of the season.  Lowrie's bat is fading.  But both catchers have been hitting pretty well lately.  Reddick looks red hot from where I sit, and Drew is anything but.

    A good start by Wake today should end the debate.

    Just goes to show that Lackey needs to step up when he gets back.

    A few losses in a row always hit hard, after you have been on a tear playing great ball.

    i think with the SOX if one is not pitching well, one qualifies for the DL, whether they're actually hurt or not.

    also, if the SOX are depending on LACKEY to make the playoffs, they are in big trouble.

    Oh no, Lowrie is BARELY BATTING OVER .300! It must be panic time. What, did you have your money on him batting .450 all year?

    Three losses after an all-around terrific month and a half of baseball and it's back to whining and howling. I think I'm being reminded why I don't come here much any more.
