It was a lot easier dealing with Alexei's mental mistakes when he was hitting 20HRs and 80RBI. Now, he is a right handed Juan Pierre with a knack for terrible errors. Jesse makes a good pitch to preserve the lead that goes right thru the wickets and Sox fans are left to stare at Alexei's vacant expression once again.

The idea of a sweep was too much for Alexei to bear. Sit his ugly ass down for a couple of weeks.

Very disappointing loss.

Jesse Crain's scoreless inning streak is over.

And I get that you/we are disgusted that Alexei's error cost the Sox this game but as a Cuban-American, this part of your post is not funny to me.

Ramirez was lackadaisical on a previous play late in the game. This guy never learns and, in fact, has regressed. As a player, he's a loser. We need to pick up a place-holding shortstop and dump Ramirez as soon as possible. You can't tolerate his ongoing silliness.

De Aza didn't run after hitting a ball down the left-field line that was barely foul and would have been a double or triple.

It's comical that Beckham continues to bat eighth.

I was pretty honked off that we threw away the game. But in retrospect, I dreaded going into KC. Before the start of this series, I was sure we were going to get swept. We ended up winning the series that ended on a terrible note.

What did Farmer have to say on the radio?

Ahh now there's the 2013 Sox we've all come to know and love. I knew dreaming of a sweep was too much to ask.

Absolutely, nothing. Apparently, Farmer was coughing up a lung so DJ had to take over the play by play.

They did win 2 out of 3 though, which I expected because the Sox never beat the Royals when they are in contention. Now that the season is basically lost we'll probably win games against the Tigers too.

Didn't mean to be funny, and certainly didn't mean to cause offense. Please accept my apologies.

It was great having Danks in there trying to tie the game up in the 9th instead of Viciedo.
Pull those hitters in the 7th inning to play for that 1 run.
Please, Hahn, get a professional in the dugout.

It's always the same old crap. De Aza, Ramirez just never seem to have their heads in the game.God I miss the days when the Sox had great fielding and fundamentally sound players. This team needs a CF,LF,SS, and catcher.

The first thing a team wants is to be strong up the middle, catcher, ss, 2b and cf, we fail in 3 of the 4.

On a semi-related note, I think they should change the rule to where if a pitcher makes an error, then any runs scored because of it are earned, the same way a wild pitch is an earned run. That way one of Crain's runs would be earned. Of course, the runs scored on Ramirez's error would be unearned.
