    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Game thread 8/7/11: Garcia VS Beckett : J. With all due respect, that is the problem. You cannot just rationalize losing to the Yankees at Fenway, in a big series like this.  This was a game we needed to win. And we have come up flat, at least so far.  Have to expect better from this team.

    Gale, you're a good guy, but can you get a grip on reality here? Even if there is no rally tonight, the Sox will be 9-3 against the Yankees. Yes, they've pissed themselves several times tonight, which is very annoying, this is not Oct. 2, 1978.

    [QUOTE]agonz has been terrible this series. wonder whats goin on with him. he has not been the same since the allstar break. he is not hitting the ball hard and is grounding out alot. anyone else wish ortiz didnt pick him for the home run derby?

    Adrian has had an MVP caliber season so far.  However, he will get a whole separate report card based on his performance in " big games."  Has nothing to do with the home run derby. You simply have got to produce when it is crunch time. He has not faced that in his career. Now , it is up to him to deliver.  No excuses.

    And as much as i like reddick, i am starting to think not getting hunter pence was a mistake.

    If I'm not mistaken, the only game this year the Sox have come back to win when trailing after 7 is the walk off double by Gonzalez against Baltimore in May. There's something to circle when looking at whether or not this team can win it all. That's probably gotta change.

I guess I gained a little perspective, hopefully they will too. (Though I'll still be pissed if they don't pull this one out).

    i agree he needs to deliver, but i my point is that playing in the home run derby clearly had an affect on him. He has not been the same since.

    Then I guess the game where they blew a 7-2 lead in the 7th inning at home against NYY in September is too horrible to remember? Goodness knows I remember. That's about as ticked off as I've ever been after a baseball game.
    It was similar to this series. Lost that game on Friday night, came back the next day and beat Wang 10-1 behind Beckett, then on the ESPN game Jeter hit a 3r HR off Schilling in the 8th inning to beat us 4-1. But it all turned out find in October. Wait, Lowell hit a 98 mph Joba pitch for a HR in the 9th. Ended up 4-2 I think.

    Back to the Varitek 3-0 swing ... I'll be very interested in hearing what that was all about. My Extra Innings package turns off after the last pitch, so I don't get to hear the interviews. I'm sure somebody will mention it.

    J. I hope things do shift.  Have been a Sox fan for many years. Have seen too many failures against the Yankees.  No way we should have lost this game. Feel sick about it.  Two innings to go, but we failed miserably Friday night.  Will this be the same?

    This is where Ortiz needs to spend time in the cage and push a ball down the 3rd base line. We need runners.

    Agree, but he never does, and ends up striking out.
