Welcome to Groundhog Day
Is it just me or does this season keep repeating itself? We suck then we play well, then we suck again (Sort of like the SCLSU Mud Dogs in "The Waterboy"). To top that all off our star players keep dropping like flies, as Dustin Pedroia will now apparently go on the disabled list with a thumb injury. On the upside, Carl Crawford and Jacoby Ellsbury should be ready after the all-star break. In the meantime, our offense has reverted to the team I wrote about in my Just Hit the Effin Ball post. 2-5 on the West Coast trip with a team ERA of 2.44, absolutely unacceptable from this lineup. I'm not sure that this week could get much worse for Sox fans, especially when you throw in the fact that Daniel Bard cannot throw a strike except a very hittable one at AAA and Darnell McDonald signed with the Yankees just as the hated rivals role into town. Good thing I am about to go on vacation to Pennsylvania and the Sox minus Big Papi will get 3 days off over the all-star break.
