    With 88 HBP, 14 more than the next closest team, I would say that at least they have tried to move people off the plate quite frequently.

    Why was Crawford moved to the two slot when he was finally getting a few hits in the worst part of our order?

    It looks like Francona is managing games not to lose rather than managing games to win.

    Francona is just not a good situational manager, which has cost the Sox more games than I can count.  When Ells reached first in the first inning, Crawford should have done exactly what Gardner and Jeter did in the bottom half of that inning; bunted for a hit, try to manufacture a run.

    the entire team looks tentative, hopefully last nite's win shakes them out of that.

    Last time they bunt?  When the last time the yankees bunt other than Gardner, and Jeter? Come on, only guy that should be bunting is guys like Aviles, Scutaro, and Reddick.

    not sure it's baseball correct to use the words francona and managing in the same sentence.

    Scutaro bunted last week. In general however the Red Sox are not a bunting team by design and I thought that RSN was aware of the fact. Perhaps it just might be correlated to Moneyball and Bill James philosophy.

    sad, but also funny, that one particular player on the SOX, making, not earning, 20+ million per year, with great speed(his only strength) doesn't know how to bunt. something else boy genius missed before turning over the bank.

    Sorry Bill, game two repudiated your small ball rant.  How many runs did we leave on the base-paths trying to play another team's game?

    First, didn't Crawford bunt into an out w/o moving the runner over in Game 2 last night.

    Second -- When you're down 4-0, 5-0 in EVERY FREECKIN' GAME this month like the Sox have, I don't think bunting is the way to get back in the games.

    Re: SORRY GUYS/GALS, A MENTAL BLOCK HERE.... WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME WE BUNTED/OR MOVE THE OTHER TEAM OFF THE PLATE?????

    The real and true reason why "small ball" and "sacrificing" is becoming a lost art in this era of baseball ( has been for some time actually)is that these are "team" oriented strategies which help "teams" win ballgames.

    These things do not help the individual at contract time.

    Ellsbury will make a bundle next contract, Granderson will make a bundle too. Not because they know how to "move the runner along" but because they hit lots more homeruns than expected.

    Lackey wiil get zero credit for settling down and giving his team a chance to come back last night, this is sad, his no decision will be lost in the box score, his goose eggs through the middle innings will be ignored. But, if Lackey self destructed in the middle innings-we lose....if he holds the Yanks at bay, we have a chance.

    Too many team oriented things happen during a game, but they are forgotten minutes after they happen. Pro sports has become a game of personal goals and stats eclipsing team effort and accomplishment.

    I hate that , do not know exactly who is to blame ( though , as always, I have some ideas) and cannot grasp why more fans do not find disgust in an aging knuckleball pitcher being given endless opporunities to achieve a major personal goal while a team's season goes down the toilet...

    That's how bad Lackey has gotten - someone wants to give him credit because he gave up only 4 runs.  For his performance last night, he doesn't have to hang his head in shame.  But he doesn't get to act like he pitched a shut out.
