I'm glad people out there arent as frustrated as I am tonight.

-Rookie pitcher who was lit up by the tribe in his last start.
-Our ace thus far
-The west coast
-DJ more annoying than usual, especially when talking about how Dye played SS at oakland because ozzie likes to "have fun"
-trying to bounce back after a tough loss
-the definition of corpseball
-crede not catching the ball for the play at 3rd
-VIZZ

It's been absurdly overused in the past. And pulling it out on the team with the best record in baseball seems a bit premature. At least let them fall into second place...

Let's see how things go in the remaining games this week before the Sky is Falling threads are created by people saying nonsense. It's a loss. The world's in imperfect place. The Sox will lose AT LEAST 60 games this year. 13 so far....so at least 47 to go. Relax and know they'll play better tomorrow

All the signs were there...you could totally see this loss coming. Oh well. Santana was just plain nasty- that slider was unbelievable. Buehrle will come back and beat Colon tomorrow. But, there are two things we can take out of this game:

1.) Uribe desperately needs a day off. He is not even close at the plate right now. Crede too. The 8-9 spot is a black hole of death at the moment.

2.) Have we seen enough of Timo yet? I was a big supporter of his last year, but we don't need him in the same way as the instigator offensively this year. During Corpseball '04, Timo was valuable as a guy that would shake things up and get on base and get a clutch single. Well, now we have Podsednik and Iguchi in that role, making Timo expendable.

His bat has been pretty bad this year (save for that one sweet HR at the Twinkiedome), and his defense, specifically his range, in the OF is downright terrible. When Frank comes back, Timo may be the guy to go, though I'd miss him



...Oh yeah, and Vizcaino, here's your plane ticket for Charlotte. Have fun with Adkins for a few weeks, come back when you don't suck. Thanks in advance. Anyone think it's time to give Baj a chance?

That's nothing.

Living on the west coast, I went to Oakland to see a Sox game in September '83. The A's put up a rookie pitcher making his debut. He no-hit the Sox. I was wearing my "Winning Ugly" t-shirt and everything.

Default Frank can't come back soon enough...

No wonder we'll have no position players on the All Star team.

Offense is a joke.

I guess Scioscia missed the memo that it's better for a rookie pitcher's confidence to pull him and put in your worst reliever instead of letting him do his own work.

And oh yes, well done Luis. Was today's blast a wind-assisted pop-up as well?

On a happier note, a round of applause to Jon Garland for being the last everyday starter to take a loss. Some days no one has your back and there's nothing you can do. Get 'em next time Jon!

It should have been Pods in center with Rowand resting. That's a poor decision by Ozzie. It's becoming clearer that Timo is gone when Gload and Frank return.
My brother and I were thinking the same thing about both balls. Rowand gets to both balls and, on Cabrera's hit to left in the second, MacPherson doesn't even try for third. As for why Timo was in center, I have no idea why he ever plays anywhere.

That said, the Twins lost, and the Sox can't play worse tomorrow, so things are still looking good.

Actually, Ozzie made the right moves tonight. It looked pretty hopeless for the offense, and there's no sense in bringing in Politte or Marte in that situation.

Why are you down on Cotts? Didn't he strike out the only batter he faced?

How did the name of the thread get changed? I was not freaking out about the season or game. But I am tired of losing on the west coast (especially since I am going to SD to see the Sox) and Viz giving up HRs.

If you look at cotts stats this season http://mlb.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/mlb/st...840&statType=2 you'll see that he's appeared in 16 games and given up an ER in 4 of them, but what you need to really research is all the inherited runners he lets score (just ask Buehrle) and he walks way too many guys. He is a 'left handed specialist' but lefties are hitting over .370 against him.
