Come sale away, come sale away with me...

Sox 1-7 with RISP today. Now 10-69 (.144) on the season.

That's so pathetic it's almost funny.

I had someone e-mail me last night with the comment, "it's hard to hit with both hands around your neck instead of the bat..."

You wonder when (yet again) this starts turning into a mental issue with these guys. Maybe it already has??

Oh well.

Wasn't it last year in Cleveland about this time of year when Sale was suddenly moved to the bullpen for a game because he was "hurt" and they needed to preserve his arm? What is it about him and Cleveland?

Came into this year with very low expectations for this team, I know it's early but I see nothing that excites me or gives me hope. The organization and team need a complete overhaul starting with maybe new owners.

There's either plenty of time left to improve or a lot of bad baseball left.

The RISP thing is frustrating, but will correct itself. The collapse of SP in the middle innings is more troublesome.

Only team in baseball without a road win. Sad.

I agree. Something dramatic should be done. The trouble is it should have been done a long time ago. This team seems to be drifting.

A team like this gets off to bad start and this could turn into a real quagmire for the fans. 1.5M is possible but Im sure by unloading the truck by the trade deadline and the sweet lease deal, ownership will still see black.

Less than a week ago they were 4-2 in first place. Now the team is doomed.

So depressing that there's not even a Pick to Click winner. Nonetheless,
you can further depress yourself by reading today's Totally Biased Game Recap.

Bah.

Sale looked like he has a dead arm. I can't remember so many players just teeing off on him. He looked like he had nothing on the ball.

Beyond that, the team looks lethargic. I know a team that isn't hitting often gives that impression, but that's my impression nevertheless. Even Hawk was quick to jump on Viciedo for a "lack of concentration" on the play he botched.

I wonder if the team is going through pre-game (or what it pre-series) defensive drills like it did last season. The defense has been brutal thus far. And our pitchers are back to not holding anyone on. There's already been way too many basestealers that Flowers has had no chance to throw out.

My guess is that the coaching staff took some things for granted this season.

The problem is the schedule. The Sox don't have an off-day until the 29th. We can't burn the pen up when we're in the middle of a 20-game stretch. We're going to hit the same thing in late May-early June, where we go from May 24 to June 13 without an off-day, and then again right after the All-Star break. The worst one comes at the end of August into September, where we get 20 in a row, with the first ten being three at Boston, three at New York, and 4 at Baltimore.
