Let's hope Greinke isn't on top of his game tonight.

You just look at that lineup and wonder what happened...  And it doesn't help that JDM forgot how to hit, his BA has dropped like a rock.  Nice lefty heavy lineup though.  We'll see if it matters.

What the hell is this Sanchez dud doing in any lineup.  He is hitting, what 050 and starting again?  All Bloom is doing is re-arranging deck chairs on the Titanic.  They brings guys up, the fail, they send them down and bring other guys up and they fail and then the process repeats itself.  I have a message for you Bloom; this method is doomed to failure just as your future in baseball if you don't get your head out of your ass and start acting like a baseball man instead of an analytic geek that you are.

Fred Leopards do not change their spots.  This team is a FUBAR.  No wonder Pedro Martinez ripped him yesterday.

Bloom has clearly lost the fans. If legends like Pedro are calling him out itís the beginning of the end.

MLB called Cora today to tell him they blew the HR call last night.  It didnít matter in the end, but it was a pretty bad screwup.

If that wasn't a home run, then they really need to fix that line so there's no doubt next time.

They fans really love Hosmer. He got a round of applause last night and again tonight.

Good to see Hosmer knock that run in. He made good contact last night but hit right at people.  One MLB guy said Hosmer was a waste, only a ground ball hitter.

That's better, JD. 2-run double.

Wow, can't believe Winchy got out of that jam. Kept his cool. Nice.

No doubt about that dinger. At least it was just a solo.

I think we've all been waiting for him to slam the door on one of those bad innings and he finally did it. Nice!

And Perez nails one.

How about their left fielder, Melendez? Good thing for them he can hit.

Verdugo is having a good night. Two doubles, a single, and 2 runs scored.

I was thinking the same thing Mongo, like here we go again but he pulled it out.  Then Sawamura started going off the rails but also got it under control.

Now the Sox are opening it up as they should against a team like this.
