    Epic failure

    Pedroia's head wasn't in the game

    Re: Epic failure

    He booted a routine ball, and it's just that simple.  It happens and to ascribe more to it than an unfortunate and unforced error is silly.  Salty unable to hit a routine fly ball with a man on third and one out in the prior inning is a serious momentum killer and that was as damaging as Pedey's error - and let's not forget that Peavey put three men on with walks and then could not get Torii Hunter out.  That inning is on him.

    Pedroia's error cost the team only 1 run, and at worse 2.

    Peavy walked 3 batters and allowed the inning to progress to 5 runs, which took the Sox completely out of the game.

    If we must throw the blame pie, this is on Peavy, not Pedroia...

    ...let's hope Lester and the Sox bats against Sanchez come up big tonite.

    Very out of character.  He simply booted a routine grounder.  I've never seen a more steady 2nd baseman, so I give the guy a huge pass.  He didn't lose the game for us, Peavy did.  Peavy bounces back for game 8 :)

    Re: Epic failure

    Peavy was absolutely the culprit last night.  Overall, the epic failure is the domination of Boston hitting by Detroit pitching.  Last night was a perfect game for Pedey to make an error because after the 2d inning the Sox had no hope.  3 walks by Peavy????!!!!!

    Re: Epic failure

    Peavy was way off.  Given his history against Detroit hitters, Farrell should have been quicker with the hook, and done a Maddon - 1 to 2 innings each from Workman, Dempster, Doubront and Morales before turning it over to the Samurai Warriors!

    Also, he needed to get Boggy sooner into the game to replace either of Drew and Middlebrooks who have between them 2 hits in the series! Lineup change coming for Boston tonight.  Go Sox!

    They were lucky to get the call at 2b....There shouldn't have been any outs recorded on that play.

    ================================

    You are correct. When Austin Jackson, who entered batting .091 in the postseason, didn’t have to swing during a four-pitch walk that made it 1-0, Peavy should have been pulled. Maddon pulled Hellickson with the bases jamned & no outs & I think we scored no runs.

    Getting no hits last night not the problem...we got as much as the first 3 games, 12, and Games 1, 2 & 3 we got 1, 7 and 4 hits. Problem was lack of a key hit and men LOB. You are correct about Drew & Middy and I think Napoli, like a blind chipmunk finds an acorn occasionally hit the HR---it was a fluke...and he has more strike outs than contact with the ball, hits or outs. And Salty is close behind in the strike out category. Other than that I hope Lester pitches well because we can't go back to Fenway needing to beat both Scherzer & Verlander.

    Peavy gets the Golden Lemon award for the night, no doubt. Pedroia gets a dishonorable mention for booting a DP ball. Frankly, much of the team could get dishonorable mentions: Ortiz, Drew, Middlebrooks....all of them absent, taking WAY too many call third strikes. And what was Workman thinking when he allowed Cabrera to steal second base?? Show me his head was not into the game. They better wake up tonight: the series is on the line tonight.

    Re: Epic failure

    Peavy left about 75% of his pitches right out over the plate, except for the walks.  Not a good combo.  Detroit hitters actually said that their win was more due to Peavy's pitching than the Detroit lineup shuffle.  

    Love the guy's energy, but Dempster's gotta be thinking, " I could've pitched better than that."

    Pedey has been stellar in this series. His offensive numbers are better than Ortiz and he also has been huge on defense. He had one bad play. One bad play doesn't lose a game . It is a team effort. Ironic that you would comment on Pedey and not on Ortiz .067 ALCS average. Should he share some of the blame too?

    they are part of a team, they all share blame.

    Theres no possible way to place blame on one player. no way. Peavy was terrible, Pedey booted a routine ball that would have limited the damage, The offense left 10+runners on base and we were like 2-16 with RISP. LOTS of "blame" to go around guys. To place it on one person is utterly ridiculous.

    Funny, my boys Felger and Mazz were discussing how unstellar Peedey and Ortiz have been.

    You could blame Peavy

    They still could had come back - they had chances

    Plus if Pedey turns 2 then yeah

    But Peavy was the biggest driver of the loss
