Perhaps it's because the Royals threw Wednesday's game. That one was just gift-wrapped. Three hit batsmen, a wild pitch, couple of crucial errors... yikes. The Sox left the bases loaded three freakin' times in that game.

That's the one. The sox will play like gangbusters through July and all the New England loudmouths will yak about how this is the year. Then come August 1, they'll begin theri annual slide to the gutter and end up 3 or 4 games above .500 as the loudmouths will do a 180 and bitch and moan about the coach, GM, and everything else in sight.

The loudmouths have had plenty to bitch about so far this year. The Sox haven't deserved to win half of the games that they have won because of the bullpen or the lack of timely hitting. The Sox need to get their act together quickly or something straight out of 1978 will be the only way the Sox can catch the Yanks. The Evil Empire is in control now, but Shea-Luke Skywalker shall blow up the Stad-Death Star.

I am with you on their bullpen but they have been getting alot more timely hitting than last year. They have come back in a couple of games down big only to have their pen blow it. Like it or not this team can it the cover out of the ball. PLUS THEY STEAL BASES. Wow I don't think I have ever writen that about the Red Sox before.
