Default Do you feel it is a lost season already?

I realize that there is still a ton of baseball to go this season, but does anyone feel this is a lost season already? The defense has been horrendous, base-running blunders all the time, and I don't think anything needs to be said about the hitting. The saving grace has been the pitching, but that hasn't been enough to get us the wins. I will still continue to watch and go to games because some baseball is better than no baseball, but this team is simply not fun to watch (right now at least).

It absolutely is a lost season because these stiffs show no signs of improvement.

It's now the middle of June, they have played 65 games. The offense is till putrid, the defense is worse and the stupid, mental blunders continue.

Some of these guys have been playing poorly for years, why should I think that 'suddenly' the light switch is going to come on and they are going to be something completely different from what they have been showing me?

Also from a totally bizarre perspective remember this is an 'odd' year. The Sox haven't had even a winning season in an odd year since 2005.

2007- losing season
2009 - losing season
2011 - losing season

Looks like the 'trend" is going to continue.

Of course it's a lost season. I'm 46 and this is the hardest Sox team to watch in my lifetime. Atrocious hitting, terrible fielding and daily blunders.

The Sox just haven't found their groove yet. They'll come around.

This could be the start of a few lost seasons. I usually go into a season with some kind of high expectations for the Sox, even with bad teams of the past there was usually some young guys to get excited about where there might be a nice future for the team but this team had no high expectations for me this season. The only player you can get excited about is Sale and you can only get so excited about a pitcher. When the only pickup in the off- season was Keppinger I knew that this season was not going to be a good one. The decent pitching we are getting is going to waste by the biggest bunch of rally killers I've seen in my many years as a Sox fan.
Like I said earlier unless JR gets the checkbook out and goes after the best free agents out there we are in for some more lost and long seasons.

I would have answered yes on March 31.

I really find it hard to hope and believe that this team will get back to .500, let alone contend.

As a fellow '67er, I agree on all accounts.

Right now we are on pace for about 70 wins. Detroit will likely win over 90 (and that's with a horse**** bullpen).

Yeah. We're done. I'll watch the games but there's little to be hopeful about for the future. Just finish ahead of the damn Cubs.

There are people who thought it was a lost season the day pitchers and catchers showed up for Spring Training.

They'll at least be worth watching every fifth day.

They should have saved this abortion of a season for next year, when I'll be too distracted by the World Cup and Wimbledon (which I might actually be attending) to pay any attention to baseball during the dog days.

It's been a lost season for quite a bit now. At least the much needed rebuild will finally come to pass. Not all bad though, still plenty of good games to watch across MLB.

I'll have what he's having. Make it a double.

I wish you were right but we just have too many guys that don't play the game the right way and haven't a clue of what it takes to win games.
