Peavy had eight walks in 45.2 innings coming into today. In this game, he walked five in six innings. Just a rare bad day for Jake. For the most part, he beat himself.

The Sox weathered this stretch of 15 of 18 games on the road with a 9-9 record. Not too shabby. The injured guys who are going to come back will be back soon.

We'll see if they can get hot in June and at least make it a little interesting.

The sox are no longer relevant.
That's a bit of a false equivalence. Message board traffic, in general, is way down among all sites. With the onset of new forms of social media, they're just antiquated. Also, the general attitude of posters here is completely different than it was years ago. The site is much more negative and generally, just not a whole lot of fun to read anymore.

Peavy didn't even look like he was having problems with command. He genuinely looked scared to challenge any hitters today. He rarely threw his fastball. He was nibbling all day. I'm not sure what was wrong with him, but I've never seen him pitch that way.

Ehh ... I don't buy it. I just think he had a bad game. None of his pitches were working. It happens.

Brooks has nothing to do with the product on the field.

I'm not sure if some of it is apathy from '11 that kind of carried over in conjunction with their play this year.

Maybe the paucity of posts is due to the fact that the weather today in Chicago is real nice, it is a Sunday and there really isn't anything to say that hasn't been said already.

I would care if we had a core of exciting young players. But besides Sale, there's nobody exciting.

My question was rhetorical and as such, didn't mandate a response. In any event, I wasn't speaking only of today's events. People seem to have given up on this altogether, which goes far deeper than the events of a single game.

Gonzo had this is the post game story, didn't know this:

"This marked the Sox's American League-leading seventh loss in which the pitching staff allowed six hits or fewer."

Its really sos different day stuff. They have a month to turn it around. If they turn it around before they start playing detroit something might happen, if not its bad business for a very long time.

What you say is true of course but its also been cold say in Cleveland, in New York, in Boston. They haven't had a problem with hitting in cold weather have they? (as evidenced by their record...)

Not saying you're wrong, just saying that I think the "excuses" for this team over the past decade are getting thin.

Since the Sox home games are not intra-squad games they are playing another team that are playing under the same conditions as the Sox.

Don't get me wrong iam not saying that's the lone reason just a factor...The bats will warm up as the weather does iam sure of it. Let's not forget we have had what 6 guys on the DL as well.. All in all it could be much worse.

The past decade, eh? Wouldn't that include the year 2005?

I may be wrong here but has this not be one of the coldest if not the coldest spring for Chicago?
