0-5 with the new pants. Bring back the double tuxedo stripe!

Seriously, the team is looking awful right now.

Things could be worse, though not much.

We could be the Angels, whose pitching staff has been getting torched.

I have expected this team to have a collapse season one of these years....fading veterans + young players of so-so talent. Hope we can withstand this slump.

First time since 1972 the Sox lost their first five road games to start the season.

I can't remember the last time people were this obsessed with a stripe. It reminds me of the Coke II fiasco, the immediate successor to New Coke, which failed to replace Coke (later Coca-Cola Classic) in 1985.



Look at that ridiculous blue stripe! I hope to gawd the Sox win a road game, or this **** will never end.

****, I tell you! ****!

There is absolutely no excuse for letting Mark Reynolds steal a base on you when you are a left handed pitcher. That was just an absolute mental lapse.

Hate to see Sale pitching batting practice to Swisher, but that is what I saw. The pitch Reynolds hit was a batting practice slider.

Garfein mentioned that Sale should have thrown the Brantley pitch to Swisher in the first inning.

The stripe "obsession" is a playful distraction to an otherwise horrible road trip.

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.

My guess is that the coaching staff took some things for granted this season.
Yes at times it looked like he was working on the knuckle curve; that
was supposed to be offseason/ST project.

Agreed. I live overseas now so it 's easier to give up as it is a bit of a hassle to catch games. I hope for a turnaround , but this looks like it could be the worst year in decades, excepting--maybe 2007.

I see a line up that could have only one 300 hitter and seven under 250.

The Sox really need Peavy to pitch well today AND the Sox offense needs to get in gear.

Is it me or does anyone else think Sale is treating his fastball as an afterthought this season?

Big difference between the two clubs talent wise though. Don't see an MVP - type player or a Pitcher of the Year candidate on the roster.

They were doomed then, too.
