A MITCH MORELAND SIGHTING ?? iono iono

Sox finally close it out. Good game for E-Rod and the offense.

It was a good performance by E-Rod and we got some big hits and we won, but I am withholding all other positive comment until I see what transpires tomorrow and Wednesday.  I saw what happened after Saturday's romp how utterly flat, lazy and uninspired we were on Sunday.  What Red Sox team will show up tomorrow and Wednesday?  Then I will be able to tell if any real progress was shown tonight.  I'm through getting burned.

So I'm guessing your assessment of E-Rod was he wasn't all that great but the Rays were "utterly flat, lazy and uninspired"?

You watched the game---did you see E-Rod pitch a little differently than before?  I sure as hell did.  He did not nibble but went after hitters.  His control was a tad shaky but he went after hitters and right now the Rays are in a bad slump, some say a free fall.  I'm not going to make that same mistake and say yes that's what's happening to them.  I saw how Detroit and Colorado and some of the bottom feeders like Baltimore and Toronto have kicked our asses more time than they should have  this season.  So that is my assessment Ted and I want to see us win this series, maybe turn the hat trick and at least split the four game series with the Yankees, which is  the best I can hope for since Porcello is due to open the up that series and if you've followed him this season he has been pitching horseshit for us getting racked up like a cue ball.

I'd be shocked if the Sox or any team within a couple of games of the WC would be sellers.  I keep saying the FO sees getting to the playoffs and getting hot as a real possibility. 

Glad the Rays choked against E-Rod.  It clearly couldn't have been the pitching performance.  <sarcasm>


As all the NESN commentators pointed out which is exactly what we have been saying the reason for E-Rods success was he CHALLENGED hitters and did not nibble.

BTW what the heck was up with the Rays using a position player in the 9th?  There's another rule change to try out - position players can't pitch unless it's more than a 10 run lead in the 9th inning.

MLB writers are gauging this Tampa series as the test whether Sox will be buyers or sellers.   Many think JD is gone ---  not having a great year --- but will opt out because of a thin market for sluggers .  Bradley is likely to go as are Moreland, Pierce, Holt, Porcello. 

Then again, what happens if Sox win ton
Tues night?  13 in a row with Rays and NYY coming.  But Rays are in a  nosedive.
