    Waiting, Waiting, Waiting

    Good morning to my good friends on Red Sox: On the front burner.

    We all wait in life. We wait in the check out line in the super market. We wait in line in the bank. We wait in the examination room for the doctor. And now my good Red Sox fans wait for their beloved team to live up to all the hype. Bold journalists proclaimed that the Sox were going to win over 100 games and challenge the ‘27 Yankees as the greatest club in MLB history. Gonzalez was anointed as one of the greatest sluggers in
    Red Sox history. Carl Crawford would follow in the Hall-Of -Fame footsteps of his left field predecessors, Williams, Yaz and Rice. And Bobby Jenks was the heir apparent to Papelbon.

    But the cruel reality is that none of these prognostications have come to fruition. Looking at this mornings standings and stats I see the Sox in last place, 4 games behind my Yankees. In fact, the Sox have a lower winning pct than the Seattle Mariners. Gonzalez has hit exactly one homer as a member of the Red Sox. Carl Crawford is hitting a paltry .160. And the other members of the Sox hitting below the Mendoza line are Salty, Scutaro, Cameron, McDonald and Varitek. And Kevin Youkilis isn’t that far away at .213. So the comparison of the 2011 Sox lineup to the ‘27 Murderer's Row Yankees lineup turns out to be ludicrous.

    Moreover, the Sox pitching staff has glaring weaknesses. Two key starters in the rotation have bloated ERAs: Buchholz, has a 5.33 ERA and Lackey has a 6.35 ERA. And two important Epstein bullpen acquisitions this off season have been disappointments: Jenks-ERA 8.64 and Wheeler-ERA 9.82.

    So once again you wait. But I Guess you’re used to waiting. It’s been 95 years and waiting for Sox fans.

    Is Bobby Jenks the next Eric Gagne?

    Frank you are a tool.  And as bad as Jenks has been, he hasn't been any worse than Soriano, who will cost 3 times as much, unless he uses one of those ridiculous opt-outs they had to give him.

        Time to show the door to Francona! This team lacks motivation and
     direction. We need someone to instill confidence and purpose in this
     very talented team. We are going to blow this season away again by
    sitting with the same mentality. We need agressive & a take charge guy
    who will NOT be a buddy to the ballplayers!!!    LouV

    I can't read the original post but I can only guess what he has said...

    My only question back would be:  Are you still waiting for Rivera to get the last 3 outs of Game 4 of the 2004 ALCS?  How about Game 5?  How about to win that elusive 4th game?  Waiting......waiting............waiting...................
