Yes, losing 3 of 4 games is bad. But the Sox were definitely in three four games and lost the 1st and 4th games because of Bailey twice and the caught/dropped fly ball in the 9th of the 4th game. And maybe Bailey doesn't give up that run if Napoli knows to tag one guy before stepping on 1B. Also in game four, Drew had the error on the bad hop, only his second of the season.
With solid pitching down the stretch we could have easiliy taken 3 of 4 against Detroit. Its all about consistency in the end, right now every team in the division has been inconsistent recently except the Jays. We need better pitching and one more big bat to seperate from the pack.
How about also a manager who is more concerned about winning games that trying to help a miserable reliever regain his confidence at the expense of the team's suucces? We're right back to the old FrancoMa days of "NOT WANTING TO LOSE HIM" claptrap that doomed us when Tito was bungling things in the dugout. Farrencona said Bailey would not be used in high leverage situations only to go back on his word and use the guy at high leverage a situation as could be imagined. That was just plain utter stupidity on Farrelancona"s part and it points out that he is another Tito type, good at handling players and a complete nincompoop in the dugout. He has helped cost us four wins the past two weeks. We cannot afford that type of inepitude.
Farrencona,lol... I was thinking Franarrell.
