    If you can't handle a lot of frustration, baseball isn't the right game to watch.

    This team does not hit home runs and it's hard to manufacture runs. Outside of Ortiz, no one has power.

    Unless the hitting dramatically improves there will be no playoffs because our pitching is CERTAINLY not going to get us there.

    Common on it's hard to complain about this team, they're 20 gms over .500. Every team has ups and downs w/ hitting and pitching over 162.

    I didn't say that.  The offence is in a slump.  Hopefully that's all it is.

    Really now.......


    RS SP is 5th in AL with only two current playoff bound teams (Tigers/A's) ahead of them. The vaunted Rays SP is tied with the RS
    RS RP is 8th with only two playoff bound teams (A's/Texas) ahead of them. Even the vaunted Rays RP is a half run worse than RS

    So if the Rays are considered to have a very good staff what does that say for the RS staff????

    The Royals to whom they lost three have the Best SP and second best RP

    Hitting wise they are still second in the AL and with RISP they are 5th but the good thing is that they have the most chances with RISP with most runs and RBIs as well as most Ks.

    As long as the RS maintain their consistency they will be fine. Consistency has been the hall mark of this team. No long losing or winning streaks.

    Other teams have had both long winning streaks followed by long losing streaks. Rays won 12 of 13 then immediately lost 6 in a row actually losing ground on the RS.

    Jays won 10+ in a row got to 3rd 3 games back then went on a losing streak.

    RS longest WS is 7 longest losing streak is 3 that is the key they have stayed away from the extreme inconsistency

    Re: runs ?

    The time has come to bring up Xman in time for the Yankee series. The number of LOB has become a huge problem. Wasting two good pitching performances the last two nights requires this move. He can't do any worse than Holt, WMB and Drew. We just need players that give us a better chance to win. Holt is the Super Sub and pinch runner--adds nothing offensively--Xander can run,  play SS, 3B and is a pinch hit threat.

    He should start tomorrow against Pettite at SS. Start @ 3 B Sat. against Kuroda then back at SS Sun. against CC. If he handles the situation this weekend let's take him on the West Coast trip.

    DFA Beato and send Holt to AAA.

    Re: runs ?

    Buehrle (9-7) came in 0-4 with a 4.97 ERA in his previous eight starts against the Red Sox, a team he hadn't beaten since Sept. 7, 2009. Is this a travesty...he wins giving up 10 hits and Peavy loses giving up 5 hits.

    I don't know how we are the league's best offense as  I would have guessed middle of the road---well, of course, I can understand higher batting averages getting 11 hits tonight but aren't runs considered too in the stats (HA!)  I bet we are close too to leading the league with men LOB !!! We left 12 on tonight. Yankees lost 8-4 & left 12 mob but at least got 4 runs. Need to win 2 out of 3 vs NY. And as many have said, sure wish we had picked up Soriano.

    Wonder what the record is for the ratio of hits to runs as our 11 to 1 must be in the running.

    2-11 with RISP, the death stat. Geez, probably just 1 Clutch hit in both games and were enjoying the evening more.

    Well, we didn't get them. This team is on the precipice of falling into obscurity. Win the next series or watch and weep.

    Well, now you know why people do not need to post things here saying, "Why the world we continue to see Napoli or Salty or maybe others continue to be in the line up if they are a strikeout guy all the times.

    See what happen last nite, without their MLB experience power hitters in the line up, the Sox went no where last nite.  Middlebrook and Lavarnway both have a long way to go.  Yes they are a power hitter, but cant hit when they are in a pressure!! 

    That is why Farrell need Napoli or Salty more than Lavarnway or Middlebrook or Drew (if Iggy was still on the club) in the line up. If Napoli was playing last nite, who know he can pop one ball  deep in the OF to get a S.F. run when they had man on first and third with no out or maybe a homerun to get an easy 3 runs for the team.

    But it is a good tiime for both Napoli and Salty to have a two days off which they need it badly!!

    Re: runs ?

    As frustrating as they are, having a lot of men LOB is actually a sign of a good team.  Losing by 1 run versus losing by 8 runs is a sign of a good team.

    It's not like the offense was completely silenced last night.  They did get 11 hits.  They just couldn't come up with the big one.

    They had baserunners all over the place early in the game, against a LHP.  That's an encouraging sign.

    Your missing one point. Just because Buehlie came in 0-4 in previous starts is meaningless. Starters have on and off nights just like batters do. Ortiz I believe went 7-8 in two consecutive games, and has had many hitless games. Peavy's first start for the Sox was great, his second mediocre and last night was pretty solid. If you can't roll with the punches of a long season go to work for one of the Party Stores and give up watching baseball games.

    Re: runs ?

    We are seeing some pretty weak at bats. It is a fallacy to say that seeing a lot of pitches constitutes a good at bat.  Not when you end up striking out. Not when you take strikes right down the middle, then chase pitches out of the zone. A pretty good hitter once said , " get a good pitch to hit and hit it hard."  Sometimes that could be the first pitch you see. Sometimes you have to me more aggressive. Some pitchers can make you look pretty bad when they get two strikes on you. We are seeing too much of that recently. Change up your approach every so often.

    The Sox had 11 hits last night.

    Tough to do with "weak at bats"

    What they didn't get is a couple of key hits when they needed them.
