You have to go 5-2, no worse. Then hope for the Tigers to lose 3. Just to force Verlander vs Sale game 163.

What a ****ing nightmare.

Well hard to believe that this offense is ranked 11th in the AL in September for scoring runs.

So Youk is hitting under 200 for the month with a sub 700 OPS and Beckham has a .941 OPS for the month. At some point someone might wake the manager up to see if he can make a flip there. What we have is not working.

We're really two games back right now because the Sox don't want to go to Game 163 in Detroit.

I ll take that chance over losing the division out right......slim is better than none

I wouldnt call the whole run a choke. the angels have a better record than the sox in a tough division. the indians losses you have a point.

I hear choke, I dont think so. Some ran out of gas, some father time have caught up with and some are just not good. Now its that time, when you play it out.

I tried to be optimistic but I couldn't even watch past the 4th...it's the same old tired struggle the Sox have displayed (with a few exceptions) the last few weeks. I hold little hope for the Sox now. If they struggle so badly with the Indians, I can't imagine they're going to able to do much damage against the Rays, with their pitching and on a red-hot winning streak.

But this is baseball, and it's a funny game.

Not heartbreaking after a lifetime of similar, but this is a team effort. Hitting, SP, RP, baserunning, fielding, dugout. It takes a team to do what we're witnessing. Time to switch gears.

I talked to one of the coaches. The Bulls are not planning on a long nap until Derrick gets back. There will be something to hold our interest.

Oh, what the hey am I taliking about. They can still do it. Don't give up until you have to. But think about it.

Tragg:

According to Robin, Wise started because he had better career numbers against Masterson. Robin is clearly a percentage / numbers type manager.

---------------------------------------

Sox are now 11-18 since August 26 and are now .500 since the All Star Break. Nothing usual for the Sox since 2003.

Everyone is gassed, running on fumes and mentally they are probably as low as they have been this season.I think this is it for them.

I think there's a lot of choke in this collapse, including in the dugout.

Hahn has another decision there.

Yes. That's what it feels like. Not a choke.

Holy Cow, we walked 12 guys tonight. 12 guys in a bad lineup. This is just being too scared to play good baseball. 12 walks is pathetic, spineless pitching.

There's no use getting upset about the 8th best team in the AL.

They just aren't good enough. Kenny will finish his GM tenure with 2 playoff teams in 12 years. He hit it big one year, and got lucky to win a coin flip in the other.
