This is the last day the Red Sox will be in first place this year.
In response to maxbialystock's comment:
Multiple bad plays yesterday and tonight and, really, no good plays. What did Casey Stengal say about the early Mets? Can't anyone here play this game. Inept standout has to be Salty.
Sorry, but you'll have to wait at least two games for this one to come true.
it has been smoke and mirrors.
I've been watching a lot of it, and I prefer to just call it good baseball.
Poor FA signings, getting no production out Salty, Napoli, Drew Hanrahan, Bailey, Victorino, I thought JD Drew was bad, Victorino is hurt more than old JD. they have good prospects .
So just playing the prospects would have met with similar success? Just like last September?
But they play guys who can't run. Dempster is a bust. Texas signed Dempster for the pennant drive last year, he was a flop. Hanrahan pitched the Bucs right out of the race last year, he was obviously hurt, Cherry signs him, drew was an injury waiting to happen, as was Victorino. Players who can't play because of injuries are not players
I'll admit that it can be painful watching Papi and Napoli run the bases, but when they they slug one over the fences, like Napoli did twice in the last game, do you really need an accelerated home run trot?
If it wasn't for Lackey they would really already be in trouble, Tampa is coming . The Rays will leave beantown in first place, write it down.
Tampa is playing well with or without the help of the Red Sox, so it is possible that this prediction could come true. But based on your tendency to focus on the negative, and your premature and incorrect prediction about the last the day the Red Sox will be in first place, you may not be the greatest source to consult regarding these matters.
