Swisher gets a hit and acts like it's Cleveland's first World Series championship since 1948.

Quintana had a great game.

Thornton was sharp.

Rios and Gillaspie continue to hit the ball well.

I'm still pissed that Ramirez couldn't execute that ****ing bunt. Like, I'm steamed. Why in the hell Ventura would have him bunt when it's obvious that he doesn't know what the **** he's doing up there when it comes to a bunting situation is beyond me.

What a crappy way to waste the best (or second-best) pitching performance of the season so far.

opening day was great, but it looks like a long year unless we can have an 8 game winning streak soon! Scoring runs looks like a problem.

Of course it was Swisher. If the Sox can't figure out how to bring a man in from second with nobody out it is going to be a looong year.

I know some people didn't like the call to bunt, I don't mind calling for the bunt but calling for Alexei to bunt is a bad idea. He SHOULD be able to do it of course, but he has shown that he can't. Even if he did get the bunt down, I still don't think the Sox would have been able to drive him in.

Robin needs to have Alexei out at 9 am tomorrow for bunting practice.

I'm at work and wasn't entirely sure who that was at first. Then, I was like "figures." What an ass.

Well this is a damned depressing way to start the weekend!

Gawd, I hate Nick Swisher!

Swish hit a walkoff when he was on our team too...

Then he sucked the rest of the season.

Tough, tough loss and no end to the misery in sight.

To hell with that. Just don't ask him to bunt. Part of being a manager is knowing what your players can and can't do. It's ****ing obvious to any Sox fan that this man can't bunt for a sacrifice, so why ask him to do something that he can't do?

It boggles my goddamned mind!
