    Game thread, Septe...

    With 13 games to go, the Red Sox have to turn it around or they may not make the playoffs.  Beckett has been superb against the Devil Dawg this year, going 2-0 in 17 innings only giving up 2 infield hits and no walks against 12 strikeouts.

    Hurling for the Dawgs is Shields. He leads the Majors with 11 complete games, has gone at least 8 innings in 6 of his last 7 starts, and has exceeded his career-high in innings pitched with 226. But, he is 1-8 lifetime at Fenway with a 6.99 ERA, his only win coming on April 17, 2010.

    INJURIES

    Red Sox: Buchholz, lower back strain (placed on 15-day DL June 19, retroactive to June 17); Drew, left shoulder, broken finger (placed on 15-day DL July 26, placed on 60-day DL September 13); Bedard, left knee, left lat (day to day, likely to miss 1 start); Lowrie, bruised nerve in left shoulder (day-to-day); Youkilis, left hip bursitis and sports hernia (day-to-day)

    Devil Dawg: Cobb, thoracic outlet syndrome (placed on the 15-day DL August 7); Fuld, strained right wrist tendon (day-to-day)


    Ells lost his 18-game hitting streak last night. It was his 4thcareer hitting streak of 18 games or more.

    Beckett is the 2nd starter in the live-ball era to pitch at least 8 innings in two starts against one team in a season and to surrender at most only 1 hit and 1 walk in each start.  Dazzy Vance of the Dodgers was the first, in 1925 against the Phillies.

    46 years ago, September 16, 1965, Dave Morehead pitched a no-hitter to beat the Indians 2-0. The next Red Sox no hitter was by Nomo in 2001.

    May your post be a prayer book. Every game has become utterly critical, especially the next 3 with the Rays.

    and our chance better come about this fall, because the rotation of the devil dawg is only going to get tougher for years to come in the AL East: i.e Price, Hellickson, Moore, and Davis.

    im not expecting much/miracles ...josh sometimes seems to have a bit of trouble coming back from injuries...he seems to need a FEW games to get back into his rythym...but even a 70% Beckett is a lot better than what we have been throwing out there lately...it would be nice if we could score 3-4 in the first few innings and get a lead

    Remember when countries/armies hired mercenaries ??? Maybe we can get the Baltimore Orioles to put on our uniforms & play for us.

    Ok, Ok, I'm joking but I find when I'm quite depressed as I have been with our team lately, especially against the Rays whom I'm hating more than the Yankees, trying to be light helps relieve the anxiety and tension. Although in pain, like a boxer who really gets tagged & feels it, he smiles to not show his opponent he's hurt so this die heart fan---72 years old so I go back to Williams, DiMaggio, Pesky, Kinder etc. etc. days.

    Even if we lose tonight it will not be as devastating as Bucky Dent & Aaron Boone's homers and the Bill Buckner bobble so I'm going to try to be positive.

    GO SOX !!!

    Here we go again. Trailing early. Shields will be tough to come back on. Same old thing. This team is in a state of collapse.  Beckett will come up big. Yeah , right.

    Longoria can be nullified

    But Francona will allow one man to end our season

    If Grady got fired, Francona should too

    Looking very bad. Madden is so smart. Bunt on him, check out his ankle. Success. Then Longoria hits a bomb.

    Whats with Maddon he looks like a jerk with that hair and the dye job. Thats about the only thing of interest so far. Kotchmann at 334 how do you spell HGH ? Another joke.

    that's because Maddon has a game plan and goes for the throat

    Francona just bends over and takes it

    If the Sox got swept this will be the NEW BOSTON MASSACRE

    Beckett is the only one who can stop it

    However, Beckett will be ordered to go after Longoria

    Game Over

    Series Over

    Season Over

    Know how to cool off Longoria...give him a big fat contract & put him in a Red Sox Uniform.  Sorry for my cynicism but this is getting tough to take !!!
