Default *Official* A strikeout is better than a double play 4/17 postgame thread

I felt the breeze off those Sox whiffs from downtown.

By my count we left the bases loaded 3 times, right?

6-6... On to Seattle

That last call was awful but we struck out what? Sixteen times? Those weren't all on blown third strike calls. That AB to Jones was another killer. At the end of the day we are just about a .500 team.

Well, that sucked.

At least Dunn looked good again.

Won't do much damage losing 3 of 4 to the Orioles, but it's nice to see Dunn be useful.

We are 1 for 10 with the bases loaded so far this year. Our worst hitter from last year has that one hit.

Floyd is such a space cadet. It was like he had no idea there was a base open and an 0-for-20 hitter on deck.

Those two runs on that hanging curve to Jones cost the game. Mistakes like that are the reason he is a career .500 pitcher.

I'm sorry but both the final strike call to DeAza and the final strike call to Rios cannot BOTH be strikes...

I realize it was a getaway day game but the home ump sucked.

Still Floyd's the one who made that gawdawful pitch to Jones. I think I could have hit that pitch (though obviously not as far).

Ugh...

Lose 3 of 4 at home to the O's, not good.
I also question Robin sitting Beckham, guy finally breaks out of a slump with 2 hits last night and he sits today, hey Robin go with the hot hand.

Morel actually scored at the end. 5-4 final.

Is that on Floyd, or on Flowers calling the pitch, or both?

Signs of life in the 9th inning is always good. But Sox had their opportunities - bases loaded, thrice, and no runs scored? Ugh.

Escobar and Lillibridge didn't display any compelling reasons to play them in place of Beckham and Morel. Dunn's looking pretty good, Rios has been quietly performing (well exact maybe that last at-bat). I hope Paul's hand is ok.

Let's go pound 'em on the west coast.

Another garbage loss to a garbage team with a garbage pitcher.

It shouldn't bother me but it does.

Same old Sox... play well against good teams (Texas, Detroit) fall flat on their faces against trash teams.

Floyd's been doing that for the last three years, never came close to his 2008 performance. He'll pitch great for a month, six weeks then get the **** beat out of him.

That's exactly what I was thinking after he served up that batting practice roller. Floyd strikes me as a pitcher who is lights out when he has all his stuff working, but is literally confused about what to do when it is not. I sincerely believe that at least half the posters here would have thrown a high strike out of the zone on that 3-2 pitch and gladly taken their chances with Johnson if Adam "If the Sox keep throwing me gopher balls, I'm going to hurt 'em" Jones did not offer at it. Floyd simply did not pitch smart today, and he has been pitching too long to have games like this.
