I'm talking about Saturday night's loss to the Jays and specifically the 4th inning when Toronto scored 3 huge runs which basically determined the outcome of the game.
My argument is that Buchholz would have gotten out of that inning without a scratch but for an egregious mental error by Bogaerts at 3B. With two outs and nobody on Lawrie hit a routine grounder toward the hole, but easily and cleanly fielded by Bogaerts, who then had an attack of "ready, aim, ready, aim, ready, aim, etc." When he finally pulled the trigger after taking--I counted them on the replay--six steps with the ball in his possession, Lawrie beat the throw by a full step. Nobody argued the call at first. He should have had Lawrie by two steps, period.
And that, I would argue, cost the Sox a game at a time when the Sox were/are in a dogfight for the home field advantage. It was mostly a rookie mistake, but I think another factor might have been in play. Right now almost the only guy on the Sox who runs out every grounder is Pedroia. Ortiz begins trotting the instant he sees he hit a grounder to the right side. Even Ellsbury will slow up when he sees a clean grab of a routine (not one in the hole) grounder. So maybe seeing that all the time played on Bogaerts mind. Maybe he didn't expect Lawrie to go all out on an almost (it was in the hole) routine grounder.
Funny thing, but in that game I thought Toronto overall played with more determination than the Sox. This does not mean the Sox don't play with determination because they do. Only that this is still a horse race (with Oakland) and you can't take a breather.
