    Agreed. 
    Crawford shouldn't be hitting ahead of Reddick. Going 0 for 6 with 4 K's and 6 lOB is not a pretty line, especially for someone making $20M per year. He should be embarrased.

    What were the three situations? Scutaro? Navarro? And what else?

    Crawford has looked pretty bad out there all year but it is on the manager to make out the lineup and hitting Crawford behind Ortiz right now is a joke !! And don't even talk about his pitiful defense... hit the cutoff man and the game is over 1-0 !!

    The squeeze is total fail. What was Francona thinking? And if he hits Reddick that low in the order down the stretch he needs new glasses.

    and Carl is just awful.

    Scrubtaro isn't a Starting SS on any other team in MLB.....Crawford is finding out just how bright the lights in Boston are!!!! Sox should go get Reyes from NYM.

    Scutaro def missed the sign, but wouldn't have been able to pull off a bunt on that pitch I don't think.

    Then to get bagged at second.

    Then called strike three.  Bad game for him, but the Sox missed their chances all around.

    Scutaro missed the squeeze sign, why they didn't have the coaches call time and make sure everyone was on the same page is juvenile. As far as CC goes, he will be the biggest bust of Theo's long line of busts. Fact 1. He has a weak arm, that is not rocket science. Fact 2. He has relied on his speed to be considered an elite player, you can't steal first. Fact 3 he can't hit lefthanded breaking balls. Fact 4. because of his untradeable huge contract , we will watch this guy do what he did today for the next 6 years, and the pipeline is now totally clogged , with no chance for an outstanding prospect being developed for left field for the next 6 years. For me that is the worst one.

    This bozo has an outfield position tied up for 6 more years. They could have tried to make Lavarnway a Left Fielder , the easiest of the three outfield positions, course he hits right Handed, they don't need a right handed hitter in the outfield, according to Theo. I don't know why they even have a farm system, when they sign free agents like Crawford , for huge dollars and totally de motivate the up and coming players in the system.

     Todays loss was but a blip on the radar, but Crawford is no blip, he s..cks, he will be make the JD Drew signing look like Drew was babe Ruth, by the time it's over.

    Guys, it is one game.  Crawford has hit well since right before the break, why the hatred? 

    It is disappointing to lose, but it happens.   The good news is that Lester is back.   That alone is worthy of celebration.

    Re: That one was on Scutaro and Crawford

    The Crawford at bat in the bottom of the 9th was probably the worst at bat I have ever witnessed in my 69 years of watching baseball, including Little League.  First let's set the stage.  Sox have runners on 1st and 3rd, one (1) out.  Crawford at the plate.  More often than not, in a situation like this the Royals are going to pitch around Crawford to set a play at any base, but more importantly for the Royals, to get a double play.  In the old days, Crawford would have been intentionally walked, but nowadays big league pitchers are good to the point that they will attempt to "pitch around" a hitter in the hopes that the hitter (Crawford) would be stupid enough to try and hit a pitch out of the strike zone. So what does Crawford do?  Yep, he was stupid enough to swing at five (5) pitches out of the strike zone.  The 1st was in the dirt.  Followed by another one almost in the dirt, one a foot outside, one a foot inside, and the last one, a pitch up in his eyes for strike 3.  WOW!  Somehow Crawford actually was able to foul off 2 of those pitches.  Had Crawford been aware of the situation, and a lot more patient at the plate, Crawford would have walked.  Bases would have been loaded with but one out when Reddick hit a LONG fly ball that would have easily scored the winning run from 3rd.  That one might have been on Scutaro later in the game, but this one on Crawford really shows what an undisciplined, inpatient hitter Crawford is as many have come to learn since Crawford has been with the Sox.  Knowing this, why didn't Francona and/or his Coaches pull Crawford aside to remind him of the situation?  Lots of blame to go around on this one to lots of Sox's.  Oh well, that's baseball for you.  GO SOX!

    Totally agree with you on this "ADG", but this has been the MO of Theo and Francona that the big money players will bat higher in the lineup than a kid like Reddick.  Forget the stats.  Remember the money.  That's why an inconsistent Crawford is batting ahead of a hot hitting Reddick.  GO SOX!

    even the SOX can't win every game, but one thing that does go on forever is THEO'S embarrassing free agent signings.
    I said it more than once, CRAWFORD will make everyone forget about THEO'S previous blunders; that's how bad it will be.
    and TITO isn't going to the HOF unless he pays for tickets like everyone else.
    oh yeah, THEO isn't going either.

    Crawford was awful last night I agree.  After the night before and finally getting over the 250 mark I was hoping he finally turned things around.

    Re: That one was on Scutaro and Crawford

    Did Crawford lead the team for most 9th or later inning game winning RBI in the past three months?  I strongly believe that he happened to be over-confidence due he thought he could easily do this again himself.  Guess he didnt do a heck of a job this time.  He was just being out smart by the Royals' pitcher.  Well, it is one of the game that he messed it all up during his possible game winning RBI hit. 

    Let it go and he know what to do next time!!

    People need to stop looking at how much he is making, and alway telling him that he got to win the game at the end all the times!!  Come on, how many times we see Jeters getting his game winning hit and RBI in his career?  I bet Posada who is far worse hitter than Jeter may have more winning hit and RBI!!  I wouldnt be suprise about it!!

    Re: That one was on Scutaro and Crawford

    Well said. Still waiting for the real Carl Crawford to show up, the guy I was terrorized of in Tampa Bay. This one with the Sox is a bust and waste of 20 million dollars.
    Tito does not manage close games well. I am so tired of seeing this. 
    In the 13th inning 1st and 3rd one out. Why on earth is Navarrro swinging at a 2-0 pitch. He is a .200 hitter. why did they not have the hold sign on. This guy cannot hit. He fouls out amazing. I will not even comment on the Scuttaro missised sign. 
    Obviously they never are asked to do this so Scuttaro was not even thinking of it and thats why he was not paying attention to the sign. They would not be in this position if Lowrie was not hurt like he is every year. Obviously trhey need an outside upgrade at the position in the future. Scuttaro and Lowrie are not it..

    Re: That one was on Scutaro and Crawford

    funny that so much has been written about the red sox needing a right fielder.

    crawford looked asleep last night in everything that he was doing, but he can't be the only one blamed for a terrible loss. 

    on scutaro's botched squeeze i found it hard to believe that the red sox do not seem to have a "confirmed" signal by the batter to the 3rd base coach and the runner on third indicating that the batter knows that the squeeze had been called.  why take the chance the the batter may not have gotten the sign in such a critical situation in the game?  i bet that there are little league teams that have such a signal.

    good notes from last night were lester looking good, reddick hitting well again and the bullpen mowing down hitters until williams had to be left out there one inning too long.

    Its funny how some people just NEED someone to blame this on..scoot saved a run from scoring with a great diving stop too..Gonzo K's 3 times,Pedey was 1-6 with 4 LOB,and Williams looked awful in the 14th..Theres plenty of "blame" to go around if you choose to take that road....

    Crawford is not the player John Henry shelled out $142M for.    His speed is not what it once was and will only get slower as he gets older.

    Because these guys are major league ballplayers. They confirm signs in Little League, but here you expect these professionals to get the sign and try and execute the play. Unfortunately, Scutaro was asleep at the wheel and it could have cost them the game.
