It's time to activate Ventura, Baines, Melton, Thomas and possibly Minoso.

Was/Is Konerko hurt? He didn't start or pinch hit tonight. I can't believe Konerko is being benched in favor of a guy hitting 1:20. I realize this is a money thing with Adam Done. If he was a rookie or even making a salary of $2 million dollars a year, he would be off this team by now. But still, to bench your team Captain for Done is beyond belief.

Tied for the sixth worst winning percentage in baseball. Others have doubted it but I am assuming we will net a top five draft pick next year.

Only Miami has scored fewer runs, yet our assclown of a manager will trot out an automatic 0 4 in the clean up spot all summer.

And let's not make this loss all about Harvey- did anyone really think we would score against their bullpen?

Me neither.

You forgot to fill out the title line!

I think this is one of those games where you actually have to just tip your cap. Harvey had probably the pitching performance and stuff we have seen this season.

I was just trying to calculate Humber and Buehrle's scores for their perfect games (not that it is complicated, but I haven't seen the metric before). If I did it correctly, Humber got a 96, Buehrle a 93. Harvey had a 97 tonight.

Biggest clown moment, which nobody has mentioned, was when Hector wasn't on deck for his at bat and the game was delayed. That's Little League stuff. I know most of the team has checked out, but are Ventura and Parent sleeping in the dugout now? How does that happen? That's almost Bevington-esque.

You're correct on the first two, ESPN hasn't posted Harvey's yet.

Hawks have scored more in the last 4 than the Sox.

It's Bozo's Circus everyday with this team, which is well on its way to being the dumbest Sox team I've watched.

Going back to Harvey...It was one of the most in-command performances I've ever seen. I'll take him over any pitcher in baseball right now.

I don't think Jones had a loss all of last season. He's got three in the first 31 games this year. That's what happens when you walk people. He doesn't seem to be as effective when he comes out for a second inning of work. He better shore that up. There are times where the team needs him to provide more than just one inning.

Harvey is obviously pretty good. The Sox aren't the first team he has shut down this year.

That said, every pitcher the Sox face shuts them down, so it's becoming increasingly difficult to tell the difference between a well-pitched game by the opponent and just another poor showing by Sox hitters.

I'm starting to think it's going to be a pretty long year. When this team slumps, it slumps forever.

Me neither.
Which is sad because their bullpen really isn't that good, with the exception of Parnell.

It's also a bit of a stretch to call Harvey an elite pitcher, when the guy only has 7 career wins in the majors.
