Posting this here rather than off topic because you people don't deserve my presence there, but my boss who used to work for the Red Sox (and told me all about the clubhouse antics in 2011 long before it became a story) just got a new job. As a parting gift he gave me a game used Tim Wakefield bat. I think it's my favorite thing I own now.

Toronto will likely benefit from low expectations going into next season. They'll have a productive offense and their pitching won't be any more disappointing than it has been this year. They reming me a bit of our team last year except they aren't making themselves look as stupid off of the field granted Gibbons is a lot more respectable than Bobby V.

Why do you give the Blue Jays a game that we easily should have won? Why not give up a game with an ace pitching if you're going to give up on one? Losing games against someone like Esmil Rogers is what could kill you when all is said and done. Terrible loss IMO.

Funny how the Rays just lost 6 in a row, something the Red Sox haven't done all season. Guess they don't want the division either. You know it's a poor week when the misery trio make their appearance to complain about how awful this team is.

who's the misery trio well i know BSF is one of them haha

Agreed i bet we were trying to lose. Clearly we don't want to stay in first place.

That's not what I was getting at. How the hell do you play like crap against the worst team in your division? I understand its only 2 games but the red sox should of swept them.

Stop acting like a smart ***, I never said I didn't have faith in this team. All I was saying was they lost two games in a row just when Tampa wins 2.

The way you wrote this makes me think, you believe I have no faith in this team? You couldn't even be further from the truth. And what I said wasn't even negative they really did lose two games in a row while Tampa won two in a row.

You know what from now on I'm just gonna be negative towards this team. Since no matter what I say is just gonna get twisted around why should I care.

Do you not do that already?

Seriously though that series was atrocious and how you fail to get to MB or Esmil Rogers is a mystery to me. Horrible series. I hated the fact that Farrell left Workman in to lose game 2 and I'm not surprised we lost the 3rd because that's the **** that happens when you get confident enough to sacrifice what should have been an easy win. But as bad as the offense has been.. the bottom line is that if there were no errors either, we likely do sweep Toronto. Errors are going to happen though, so it's more pragmatic to put the blame on the offense.

This lineup needs to be shaken up.
Ells
Pedroia
Ortiz
Carp (vs. righties for now)
Victorino
Drew
Nava
Middlebrooks

Not a huge shake up, but it's something I'd consider.

Thankfully we won't be seeing that.

You want to be a mod here? Do the opposite of what you've been doing, then wait about 4.5 years...

What's wrong with it? It's basically the same lineup that we have with a slight change.

Could we somehow manage to get Pedy behind Ortiz. Pedy has been terrible but he will pick it back up and offer ortiz protection. I suppose then we would just have the same problem we are having and no one would be able to protect Pedy..

Ells
Victo
Ortiz
Pedy
Carp/Gomes/Nava
Napoli
Salty
Drew
WMB

What I said was wasn't even that negative? It was a fact that Boston lost two games, just when Tampa was winning. How can anyone deny that? And why is anyone acting surprise rather or not this team is in first or second place? We all knew the Red Sox wouldn't go the whole year in first place in the AL East.
