We keep playing like this, and our beloved Sox will be making tee times with Jeter and Damon by Saturday.
C'mon, guys! I can't believe you are going to let these Cleveland Indians tromp all over you!
For the second straight post season start, Dice K could not get out of the 4th inning. Tonite he goes 4 2/3, 4 runs, 6 hits, 2 walks, 6 Ks. But he is not the only reason we have struggled in Game 3.
You can't win a ballgame, if you cant score runs, especially when there are runners in scoring position.
So has been the case with these Red Sox all year. When we are hot, we are on FIRE. But leaving it all up to Manny, Papi, and Lowell every night is suicide. Other than Youkilis, the rest of our bats are just sucking wind. Might as well wrap the ALCS in a pretty little box with a red and white bow, with the lack of production out there. So far tonite we continue with quiet bats from Pedroia, Coco, Drew, etc. etc. Who will step up to the plate?
Lay off the sinkers, guys! All we keep doing is hitting ground balls. As I write, its now the 6th inning, and we are down 4 - 0. Youk and Papi are on, Manny is up and Lowell is on deck. My hope is that we will figure out a way to turn it on, and get some numbers on the board.
More later... hope to tell you good news; we shall see?!?
UPDATE: 9:20 pm. Manny grounds out, into a double play. Inning over... Sigh....
