    Dempster looks sharp today. Good pickup. 

     



    Yeah because a pitcher is only as good as his last start...

    You mean "I am extremely reactionary and a bit foolish"?

    What are you whining about this team was on pace for 115 wins before this slump. It is a long season.

    Dempster is morphing into DUMPSTER now. Can't say I didn't expect it. He is not quite there yet, so he is still Dempster until his ERA exceeds about 4 or so. Meanwhile, this team is returning to the form I expected. They stunk last year, and they will not be much better this year.

    Victorino has just achieved official Dirt Dog status. Unfortunate that the same cannot be said of others on the field.

     



    Examiner , I keep saying that this club has slipped into loser mode. But I keep getting told that it is just the " ebb and flow."   I wonder what the tide was like when the Titanic went down ?  

     



    It was the ebb and flow of the North Atlantic. The ship will arrive soon. Meanwhile, remember when this team could be counted on for 90+ wins every year? Even if they didnt win the whole thing, you knew winning was in their DNA. This version has losing in their DNA, and they will revert to it every time, no matter how promising they start. How and why its happened is up for debate, but the fact that its happened seems clear. Before the series at Texas my thought was that if they won that series Id start to believe in them, and if they didnt, it was the beginning of trouble. They just simply arent that good, and what we're seeing now is what we expected when the season started.

    Ths team will be lucky to break 85 wins and sneak in with the second WC, and even that is very sketchy. Its a long season, true. Plenty of time to accumulate a lot of losses just like this.

    There is no way in hell we are winning 85 games and sneaking into the playoffs because the team STINKS. Soon will come the time when its best for us to start losing as many games as possible so the FO cannot hide the kind of product they have burdened the fans with this year-and so the implementation of plans for 2015 can begin in earnest. Hopefully Henry will sell the team to someone who cares.

    Nope. They stink. No more wins than 81 this year. If that works for you.

    We do have some good pitching, just not great pitching. Lester and Bucky are good, not great. Taz, Uehara, and Bailey are pretty good too if they are healthy. They started the day sixth in ERA in the AL, but that will drop a lot after this mess today. They made Chad Jenkins into Cy Jenkins today, as I predicted.

    Im trying to be as optimistic as possible because of all the pom poms on here, but youre right. Even that is unlikely. My guess is this team is in total freefall and will land in 4th place.

    Anytime they face a pitcher for the first time and crap out, its always "theyve never seen him before", but the next team beats his brains out the first time they see him. The Sox used to sendthese  guys home quivering to their mommy when they came to Fenway. Remember those days?

    Maybe not, but who is out there to replace him? And how much team, fan, and media turmoil are you willing to endure to try someone new?
