The Red Sox won a game in Detroit, right? Because it really feels like they got swept. One of those series that really gets under your skin.
- The fans, much less the players, won’t forget Sunday’s game for a while. The Red Sox were over-managed and badly umpired to oblivion. (Red Sox fuming after loss in Detroit)
- To his credit, Daniel Nava has made fantastic strides in his fielding. But all that’s negated when a umpire can’t even tell what a catch is anymore. (Nava, Farrell say ump blew ‘catch’ call)
- With the Red Sox the only Boston team seemingly without drama these days, it’s about time we soak up the sun at a game or two. Hey, they are in 1st place in the AL East, y’know… (Summer camp for Red Sox)
- Speaking of the AL East, it’s true that the Red Sox are leading by 2 games. Regardless of the standings, though, all five of those teams are all OVER .500 in win percentage. How’s that for a division, huh? (The AL East is unreasonably good)
- Wherefore art thou, the real Jon Lester? He’s not recently been the quality starter we’re used to seeing, hurling two 5-run stinkers in his last two starts. What’s going on? (Making Sense Of Jon Lester’s Woes)
- Of course Clay Buchholz‘s return is delayed during the time when the rotation needs help the most. OF COURSE THAT HAPPENS NOW. (Return of Clay Buchholz put off indefinitely)
- Cuba does “export” – read: defect – something better than cigars these days – baseball players. And Ben Cherington was the only GM to see this one in person. (Cherington only GM to attend showcase)
That awful feeling when you weren’t able to do all you possibly can…
All you want is for a baseball game to be decided by your team with its best foot forward.
