    Oh, they'll try and spint it Geo....you know better than that..........I'm not going to let up on this band of underachievers and excuse-makers until they go 15-5 over a 20 game stretch, get to 10 games over .500, be in at least 2nd place, and at least be in the lead for the WC.  Oh yeah, and that all must be achieved by July 4th.  I don't care if Beckett is back or Crawford is the biggest bust since Pavano - just win games............
     
    The only reason they haven't completely collapsed is the rotation went through 2 rounds of brilliant performances.....that is not sustainable and other than Paps the rest of the team has been weak to say the least...

    The won 8 of 9 at one point. They had a bad 7 games to start the season but it is not because they are not ready. A lot of it had to with Crawford or weird plays like the ball hit the bag instead of rolling foul in front of Gonzo or a ball droping between Pedroia and Ellsbury. You take a couple of those weird plays back and if Crawford batted just 250 they would be over 500.

    In a couple of more weeks, other teams will be saying that about the Sox after only winning 2 of 3:  "it's discouraging losing to these 2nd tier teams"

    11-14 ... this is getting old.  Pull it together already.  Jenks and Bard need to pull it out of their rear ends!

    I have been following the Red Sox since 1946 when the GREAT Johnny Pesky stood there and held the ball while Enos Slaughter scored the winning run to clinch the world series for the Cardinals.This is one of the worst Red Sox teams in their history.It is reminescent of the early 1960's last place teams that were dubbed the HAPLESS Boston Red Sox.A few examples is Ellsbury leading the league in watching called third strikes and Bucholz giving up a career high 12 hits in his last outing,a sorry bullpen other than Paps,not to mention the million dollar man,Crawford who is terribly disgusting.THIS IS NOT A CHAMPIONSHIP TEAM! ! !Tongue out

    with the way this team is being run I'm not surprised. No leadership and a weak manager who cannot make a correct decision. This equals a bad team get used to it, long season ahead unless Upper management wakes up and cleans out the coaching staff.

    Theo passed on 2 premier left handed relievers in order to preserve his precious draft in an effort to find a solution some time this century to finding a real catcher.  2 quality lefties in the pen could perhaps have this team at 500 at this point in time.......

    3 games under even is unacceptable for the caliber of players we have...then again they do have to coach and motivate themselves...

    Geo - $20 million a year OR the chance to earn $20 million a year, 40k fans rooting for them every night (including groupies) and they still need additional motivation?  Come on........

    Everyone is responsible here -

    Theo made bad decisions this off season (from the pen to passing on Martin)

    Francona has mis-managed the line up and the pen (eg he has really mishandled Crawford's slump)

    And the team as a whole just don't seem to always have their heads in the game......

       HOW CAN YOU COME HOME TO FENWAY PARRRRK AND ONLY GET 8 HITS ????  4 OF THEM BY 2 PLAYERS.....

    Huh?

    When did 8 hits become a bad performance?

    As dad would say "REMEMBER WHEN YOU NEEDED A BRAIN CELL TO WORK A COMPUTER?"

    Re: under.500 again in April

    that has been the problem over the last 3 seasons. This team with tito trying to lead it will not win. They do not have any hope of a post season at all. They SHOULD have been a playoff team last year but his use of the BP was a disaster. Evertime he brought someone in or left a starter in they melted down. He is doing the same thing this year with a new pitching coach. This shows who was making the horrible decisions last season. But people here were blaming the injuries not the root cause of the season.

    Well at least we agree on this, tito is a one trick pony soon to be looking for another job, we can hope.
