    What an effort by Wakefield on short notice, true gamer BLAH BLAH BLAH

    Whatever the problem is the answer is not a geriatric pitcher who throws batting practice stuff and can barely walk onto the mound. Cant wait to hear all the "oh what a guy he is", like hes playing for free. Do me a favor. 

    Lackey, Dice K are lunatics, Bucholz back to pitching like a 5th starter, Wheeler and Jenks are jokes. Pedroia going backwards, Crawford cant do anything right. One catcher who cant hit, call a game, throw or catch and a geriatric that cant throw or hit. 

    We play like this for another 3-4 weeks and this seasons done.

    Im with you on this one.... from what I see this pitching staff is in shambles... they had one really good stretch against the angels but overall not good... Lackey is amazingly inconsistent, Buchholtz has been the same, Beckett pretty good and same for Lester.... and Dice K? it looked like he was going to turn it around but now I dont know.... and the bullpen? theyre a joke for the most part.

    I too am with you.  I've hated Wakefield for years.  He's never been a fan friendly player, and has never given the innings like people says he does.  I'm waiting for 2012 when he's retired.  As for the rest of the team, that's what you get with guarenteed contracts.  It would be much different if they were paid for performance.
    They pay these free agents all this money and expect home grown players to take a home town discount, that's backewards.  Pay the guys who come up through the system, not these jerks from other teams.
    I bought the baseball package to watch the games and I've gone through 3 TV already throwing the remote at the screen.

    This team has the talent just no leadership on the field. tito's time came 2 years ago and the sooner upper management realizes it the better for the sox.

    He was left in way too long.  Clearly he had absolutely nothing tonight.  You knew that after the first.

    After tonight's performance one thing is certain.... this isn't a team that's off to a slow start this is a team simply not as good on the field as they are on paper.

    The following players are jokes: Dice K, Lackey, Crawford, Wheeler, Jenks, Salty and Tek. Let me change that to absolute jokes.

    The following players may not be quite as good on the field as they are on paper: Ortiz, Pedey, Beckett (give him time to collapse), Buch and Drew. The names look imposing, but really not producing.

    Quick point- I'm not beating Pedey up, but he's in the Derek Jeter category of great player yet not as good as hometown fans think.

    Curt Young is too quiet of a pitching coach.  Too many pitchers aren't hitting their spots.  And Dave Madagan didn't have the hitters ready.  These two may be in trouble before Tito?  We needed 6-7 innings from Wakes and didn't get, and Jed's throwing error hurt big time.

    At least Wakefield will be gone by October, we are stuck with Lackey.  Thankfully Beckett has come around and Lester is a true dominant Ace.  Now it will be Clay and Dice-K that will bear the team's fortunes - and both are neither terrible or dominant at this point.

    Wolf if you think Dustin is a problem than you really are insane - we cannot have the absolute best at each position and he is damn good enough.

    Lets be honest Pedroia is hitting like Julio Lugo so far this year. I love the guy but if he and Youk dont get going we can forget it. We're carrying enough sh1te as it is without the guys who CAN actually hit getting it done.

    HEY, ALL YOU UNGRATEFUL FANS. WAKEFIELD IS THE BEST
    PITCHER THERE IS. WE SHOULD LET HIM PITCH EVERY FOURTH
    DAY SO WE CAN LOSE 95 THIS SEASON AND WATCH THE
    YANKEES WIN THE DIVISION BY AT LEAST 15 GAMES.
    HONESTLY...THIS TEAM IS PITIFUL. WE HAVE A LOT OF SINGLES
    HITTERS AND WHINERS. WE HAVE NO RIGHT HANDED
    POWER AND NO HR. POWER, DESPITE GETTING TWO TONITE.
    TWO GUYS ON THE CLUB ARE HITTING A LITTLE...AGON AND
    PAPI. THE REST ARE JUST MAILING IT IN. SO WHAT IF
    CRAWFORD GETS A COUPLE OF SINGLES. WHOOPEE !!!! WE
    ARE GETTING PASTED BY THE WORST TEAM IN BASEBALL.
    ON SECOND THOUGHT...WE ARE THE WORST, NOT THE TWINS.

    I don't think Julio Lugo could have had a 13 pitch at bat against Jered Weaver and then get a line drive hit.  Apparently you have forgotten how terrible Lugo was.

    Oh no!! They've gone into name dropping for emphasis!!! They're too far gone!!!

    Hist first two years in Boston. Lugo hit .247 / .314 / .343.  Pedroia is currently hitting a Lugo-esque .241 / .350 / .328.

    But there is a big difference between doing that for 2 years and doing that for five weeks.  Pedroia hit horribly last May (.236 / .367 / .333) but still managed to bounce back with a Monster June (.374 / .449 / .626). 

    Lugo?  He ever have a month like that anywhere?

    I think all coaches are safe for now.  I was critical about Magadan last year but look how that lineup did.  Young has been slightly disappointing thus far.  Lester and Beckett have done their jobs but the other 3 starters have not.

    Jamesy,

      Wake is a gamer.  And he does step into the fray when asked.

      But he did not perform this time.

      A couple of errors didn't help, but he didn't cut the mustard.

      No need to cast dispersions on him as a whole.

      Previous performance he was super.

      Will he ever be super again?  Dunno.

      But one cannot escape the fact this time he missed.

      I can only hope you don't have a performance based career and that you don't run into bad days.

      Or the end of a stand up career.

    Wakefield should have retired two years ago, Drew is just playing out his contract, Scurato, Cameron, Tek, Salty, Okajima, Jenks,Wheeler, Dice-k and Lackey are not productive big leaguer's, so out of a 25 man rooster 11  are not doing the job expected of them so, do the math 14 are doing the full load.
    Now I know Crawford, Pedroia, Youkilis Buchholz haven't played up to their potential yet, but we know barring a complete collapse, they will get it going, our at least we believe they will, and if they don't, well it will be a very long year.
    We need a catcher very badly, Please Tek just retire, and all who for the last 2 years hollered loudly for Salty, well you got your wish, now realize he is not the answer. Where do we go for a catcher, maybe the Sox should call Bengie Molina.
    We should call up Jose Iglesias to play SS, I know he will not hit much, but he will turn those ground balls into outs.
    Pay Drew his money, give him a plane ticket back to Georgia, and let Cameron[if he is kept] or Mcdonald play out their or bring up Reddick and give a full shot.
    As for Lackey, well the Sox are just plain stuck with him, it turned out to be a very bad choice. And send Matsuzakz to the NL.

    And lastly, but maybe most important, tell Francona thanks for the memories, and wish him well, then go get someone who will actually manage a game between the lines, and try to do te little things to win games.
