    Re: Game Thread - Friday Night vs Twins - Wakefield vs Baker

    This game is going exactly as I thought it would. Wakefield is doing exactly what I thought he would. Just like I said Wed. night that if they lost that debacle they'd lose the next day. I don't claim any gifts of clairvoyance. It's just years of following baseball combined with the fact that this team is so predictable (in a lame, halting, drooling sort of way) right now that there's almost no use in turning the game on. You know what's gonna happen, so why bother? I'll tell you how ridiculous it is. When the Twins had the bases loaded and two out I literally sat here and said "this guy is gonna ground a two run single into right field", and on the next pitch......

    Please tell me that this is Wakefield's last year with this team. Did they really expect to catch lighting in a bottle twice this week. He is awful and time has passes on him. Everybody that was expecting to sweep the "Stone Cold" Twins, well we just gave them a transfusion and a new life.

    Hmmmm, I'm afraid to put my predictions in the thread for fear they'll all go wrong. How about this? The Twins are gonna sweep the Sox this weekend. Does that kind of thing work? Hopefully it will......:)

    When its going bad its going bad. I cannot believe that they are just going to watch this team play like this and not fire the manager. Its like this team has no life to it and the manager is not helping it by being their buddy.

    a classic sign of a poorly coached, underachieveing team is to play to the level of their competition - particularly in regard to lesser teams...meet your 2011 Red Sox...same as the 2010 Red Sox...same as the 2009 playoff Red Sox squad tahty was swept in alds

    Examiner - Are you sure you're a Sox fan?  Either way, it's more fun to do your predictions here, right or wrong

    Wake is on b/c Dice K had to pitch in relief Wed Night/Extra inning game

    The infield is killing us tonight.  Wake deserved a better shake.  Aceves' stuff looks pretty good, though.

    Andrew, I beg to differ on the Ells attempted steal, at least as far as your reasoning goes.  You really can't say in hindsight that Ells would have scored ahead of Gonzalez because you cannot say with certainty that Baker would have thrown the same pitch had Ells been on.  Also, he'd have been pitching from the stretch rather than the wind up.

    I see Crawfoed is getting back to his old stuff. The Saltalamachia experiment was a disaster as well. Great move Theo under low budget high upside guy who the Braves over publisized the guy so some team would take a flyer on him.

    Wow. This $170,000,000 team is terrible. But no one at all is to blame. Manager is not to blame. Hitting coach, pitching coach not to blame. Players, all not to blame.

    We will win tomorrow and then every game after win we do.

    they could be 10 games under 500 by Memorial Day weekend

    and next weekend in the Bronx could be a disaster of epic proportions unless they wake up

    Yeah, unfortunately I'm sitting here bleeding with the rest of you. Whatayado? I've kept telling myself "this team cannot be this bad", but? I think their true identity is what we saw against LA. Two good wins where you have one or two questions, one game they should have won but didn't, and one game where they look horrible. Isn't that pretty much it? :-(

    Hi Joel - If Baker was pitching from the stretch it would have been easier for Gonzo to get a better pitch....either way, they were down 3.....I am not saying no way don't run since it was early in the game but.....you need to get a better jump than that....if you aren't getting a good read then do not risk it.....it was  bad risk taking everything into account

    I don't think they can go through the season with this team playing this way. Someone is going to be thrown under the bus.  NESN ratings will go down and that is not going to help either. People are going to turn their sets off and they lose advertising with lower ratings.

     And I love Eck's new word... Normally !! LOL Normally, he gets to that ball. There has been nothing near Normally about this team all Season. As Far as Francona getting tossed again for arguing yet another balk Call, I say it could be a good thing for this team and Hopefully he gets about a two week suspension so this team gets a chance to get to .500.
