June 3...This Would Almost Be Funny if It Wasn’t So Pathetic.

June 3 at Toronto Blue Jays

Back to the Grind,
or Just Grinded?


Today's Sox cut of meat:
Rancid bacon
When you first taste it, it seems okay...until that aftertaste kicks in!

Short Take: Let’s see…pitching stinks, check. Hitting stinks, check. We stink….

I started writing this TBGR after the Blue Jays took the lead in the bottom of the sixth, because I no longer have any faith in our “bullpen” or our “sluggers.” I hope they prove me wrong…but I doubt they will [and they don’t. Final score Jays 4, Sox 3.]

Well, it all looked good until…wait a minute! Truth be told; it NEVER looked good. Not from the first inning when Jerry Owens reached and stole second and was moved over by Tadahito Iguchi. Then Thome struck out, Dye walked, and Paulie struck out. Crap! Can’t ONE of you guys hit a sac fly? John Danks looked good retiring the side in order in the bottom of the first. Then AJ got a scratch hit to lead off the second, and it looked like we might have something going. However, for some inexplicable reason, AJ tried to steal second and was thrown out. Naturally, Rob Mackowiak hit a home run, and what would have been a two-run lead was a one-run lead.

Not much happened in the bottom of the second (other than the free publicity Hawk unfathomably gave the Windsock in a game that is being broadcast in Europe by explaining “hineybird”). Top three, Owens was robbed of a hit by Vernon Wells. But Gooch walked and scored in front of a Jim Thome blast. 3-0 Good Guys!

Stayed that way until the bottom of five when the Jays loaded the bases with no outs. Scary part is, I was hoping they would leave Danks in because I figured the bullpen would only make it worse. Danks did stay in, struck out Matt Stairs, and the Sox got a break when Vernon Wells hit a sac fly to drive in a run. It was a break because Adam Lind left early, so the double play ended the inning.

Top of six. Sox went down in order. (Surprise!)

Bottom of six. Ozzie (or whoever, since Ozzie got tossed in the third after arguing a play) brought in a relief (?) pitcher. Oh thank heavens; it’s Masset. Unfortunately the “thank heavens” proved to be premature as after retiring the first two hitters—Glaus and Thomas, BTW—he gave up consecutive hits to bottom-feeders Hill, Phillips, and over-the hill Clayton. End of six—Toronto 4, Sox 3.

And that’s where I stopped watching. I will wait to post this TBGR until the game is over. But based on the way this team has been playing lately, it was over in the bottom of the sixth. (I sincerely hope I’m wrong.)

Well, I’m not. This team—as they’re playing right now—is pathetic. Or pitiful. Or crappy. Or (fill-in-the-blank).
