As bad as the Sox are, man, at least we don't have LaTroy Hawkins

Beckham made up for his error by being sure Latroy fielded that bunt...

Worst fielding team in franchise history? What a bunch of jackasses. It's daily buffoonery.

I don't care how much Hawk blows Beckham. Beckham is not the smartest tool in the shed. That was one of the worst errors of this comedy-filled season. Sale should punch him.

How does every single person in that dugout keep his job?

Today's gaffe was on account of Beckham, everyone's defensive golden child.

At least Beckham didn't break Gillaspie's leg on that botched pop up\tackle.

I disagree. Beckham did exactly what he should have done which is go after the ball until someone called it. Reed just stared up into the sky like an idiot instead of directing the infielders as required.

Beckham just wanted to knock the Robin getting punked by Nolan Ryan video off the top of most watch Sox videos on Youtube.

Somone really needs to create a cyclical gif of him diving over the mound to tackle Gillaspie...

Am I the only one who was kinda mad the Sox were jumping around like that after the win? The top of the 9th was a joke.

Glad they got the win, but sheesh, that goofup was awful.

After a bumpy first inning, Sale pitches yet another great game - yet doesn't get the win. That's really gotta suck.

Agreed but I could not believe my eyes when Ventura had Flowers swinging away. And sure enough he would have hit into a double play if it wasn't for the pitcher being late covering first base. If he does not have the skills to sacrifice the runners over then he should have been pinch hit for. They won this game in spite of their selves. Please do not trade Sale.

Agree completely. And to make matters worse, one batter earlier Robin had one of his hotest hitters (Beckham) bunt TO GET TO FLOWERS!! So if Hawkins had not muffed the bunt, the Sox would have had one out and a runner on second with Flowers up. Yea!

After the great defensive year the Sox had in 2012, this poor fielding in 2013 with essentially the same personnel is absolutely stunning. I am at a loss to explain it.

The two major changes defensively are Gillaspie for Youkilis and Flowers for Pierzynski. Gillaspie is at least equal if not better than Youkilis at 3B, particularly with the injuries that Youkilis has had the last couple of years. I think that AJ is better than Flowers but, for crying out loud, is Flowers so bad defensively as to drag down the entire Sox defense? That seems far fetched.
