    Why am I even watching this pathetic clusterf*ck of a team ?

    They are toast! Ortiz is done and Beltre is a singles hitter at best. Scutaro will kill them on defense and Rameriz and DelCarmen are like gasoline on a fire! To many holes to fill!

    is anyone talking about how much we are missing Ellsbury ?!? I think he is the key to any offense the Sox have… he was just getting hot when he took that knee….

    hope he comes back and back to form, and helps to spark this offense! soon

    in the meantime, thinking about shipping a truckload of Redbull to the team…

    This is shaping up to be the the 'bridge year' Theo kept alluding to. The defense is commits errors or just misses outright, the offense is so weak they're putting an enormous amount of pressure on the pitching staff. No idea how Theo & TIto work their way out of this start.

    there's a lot of season left, and the sox are not as bad as they look right now. however, i think the starters are pressing because they are frustrated with the lack of hitting. there aren't any black holes in this lineup, but there aren't any real threats either.

    How on earth is this team 170 million dollars? If it were 45-50m I wouldn't be so annoyed.
