We have been able to score runs against some of the better pitchers in the league with ellsbury and cameron out of the lineup.....
Bucholz is actually pitching pretty well this season so far...
We banked on pitching this season and it has been pretty freakin terrible...
We banked on defense this season and it has been pretty freakin terrible...
Our catchers couldn't throw out Cecil Fielder stealing 2nd base with prince on his back......
I know this pertains to pitching but our bullpen has been terrible also.....
We can't win the games we "should" win against lesser teams.....
We just don't seem to have "it" so far this season....The guys don't seem to be having fun and have good team chemistry which is carrying teams like the reds, Padres, heck even the nats are playing decent ball.....
We have tough next couple of series as we have 1 more against the yanks, Min, Phi, and TB.....If we don't come out of this stretch over .500 I will have to say we will be in BIG TROUBLE.....
In closing I will have to say that I think if Bard keeps his stuff under control I have more faith in him closing games then papelboner now.....Does paps think he is rivera throwing 1 pitch and can get everyone out.....Get your **** together guys.....
I really can't see us coming out of this gauntlet in good shape. IMO, we'll be battling the Orioles for last place in the division when all of these teams get done with us. We just got hammered by the Yankees, Minnesota is the series we have the best chance of winning (but don't count on it), Philly is on a hot streak and will most likely drill us, and Tampa Bay... hell, we had a tough time beating them when we were actually good. They're on fire now. Hopefully Old Man Henry doesn't pull the same crap he did with the Marlins and just sit on the team now that's he won a couple of World Series. The **** won't fly in Boston.
