    Those are two of the four games the Sox have won since Sept. 3. In their other two victories, the Red Sox scored 18 runs in each game.

    Every else is just noise. Starting pitching is what has led to this collapse. That's why, as John Tomase of the Herald reported earlier today, the Sox were trying to trade for Mets lefty www.baseball-reference.com/players/c/capuach01.shtml?utm_source=direct&utm_medium=linker&utm_campaign=Linker" target="_blank">Chris Capuano to start on Sunday against the Yankees.

    That's how desperate the Sox are. They would be willing to trade for a pitcher knowing he couldn't be on the postseason roster.

    Sources say the deal won't be made. Is there some starter out there Theo Epstein can find? This is starting to sound like one of those NESN reality shows. Only nobody is laughing.

    I wish I was having breakfast with Mr. John Lackey when we were reading that together.

    Better to be cautious and not panic over divison. Playoffs are a sure bet.

    Kind of a sad commentary that with just six crucial games remaining , we have no idea who will start on Sunday.

    Hey I'm available. I pitched an inning in Little League once. I'm sure I could match the standard set by Lackey and give up 6 runs in the first inning. Hey, it's one less inning for the rest of the staff to eat up. It's hardly a high bar I'd have to live up to.

    If they do decide to start Aceves in one of those games, he will be unable to pitch in any of the 5 remaining games out of the bullpen.  Im not oppose to Aceves starting, Im sure he will do fine, but can our bullpen keep it together for 6 games without him, cuz lord knows none of our starters are going to go deep into the game?

    If Red Sox fans have given up then why not just ignore this forum and watch Netflix and other entertainment instead of coming here and preaching to the choir? Do you come here to reinforce your ego? I really would appreciate an explanation for such odd behavior?

    My recommendation for our pitching rotation this weekend:

    Josh & Jon & pray for a Storm...sorry, best I could do to emulate "Spahn & Sain & pray for rain". Some of the younger Sox fans might not understand this expression but I, a Septuagenarian, was also a Boston Braves fan !!!

    Sharapova made $25 mil. last year and she doesn't win tournaments. This must drive Andrew batty.
