Another Beautiful Sunday Shot to Hell

Aug. 12 vs. Seattle Mariners

Back to the Grind,
or Just Grinded?


Today's Sox cut of meat:
Dead Duck
Pathetic effort against a pitcher who's not the first guy mentioned when they talk about Cy Young candidates, but he sure looked like it today.

Short Take: Watching this team play is probably not as painful as having all your wisdom team pulled without any anesthetic. Or having someone hit you in the face with a cast-iron skillet. Note I said "probably not."

John Danks didnít have it. Jeff Weaver did. Final score: Mariners 6, Sox 0.

As Sox fans know, whenever the talk is about how bad the opposing pitcher is, itís ďUh-ohĒ time. And this game proved to be no exception. Once again, I refuse to put our fans through a play-by-play, so here goes a summary. First inning, they got two runs and we almost got two runs, but we didnít. Second inning, Richie Sexson, one of my (teal) all-time favorite players (/teal) hit a home run, and we went down in order. End of two, Seattle 3, Sox 0.

Third inning, they got two, we went down in order. 5-0. Fourth inning, they almost went down in order but couldnít quite pull it off. Amateurs. We did it for the third straight inning. Fifth inning, the third home run by Danks got Ozzie thinking that maybe it wasnít Danksís day, so he put in Ryan Bukvich. In the bottom of the frame, the Sox actually had a threat going. Jermaine Dye got a hit and Scotty Pods got HBP, but Juan Uribe flied out and Alex Cintron grounded into an inning-ending double play. After five, Mariners 6, Sox 0.

Inning #6. They got a hit and we went down in order. Again. In the seventh, Matt Thornton came in and THEY went down in order for a change. Bottom of the frame, AJ got HBP. (Like that never happens!) But it went for naught. So far, the Sox have almost as many guys HBP as they have hits! End of seven, still 6-zip.

Top eight. Matt Thornton puts them down in order againómaybe he should be starting! But time is running out for our heroes. Whatís this? A lead-off double (sort of) by Juan? Up comes Alex Cintron. One out, but Juan to third. Hereís Jerry Owens. Two out. Josh Fields? That pop-up, coupled with his three strikeouts, probably takes him out of Pick-to-Click contention. So much for the lead-off double, and we go to the ninth. Assuming we hold them, weíll need just six to tie and seven to win.

And hereís BOBBY JENKS, looking to tie the record for most batters set down in order. AND HE DOES!!!!! Bright spot in an otherwise dismal performance. And unless someone hits a seven-run homer in the bottom of the ninth, Iím guessing heís the Pick-to-Click.

Well, nobody hit a seven-run homer and the Sox lose again. They get a day off tomorrow and then they head to Oakland. (Whoopee.) But letís hear it for Bobby Jenks!!
