It was happening

Paul Byrd pitched 5.2 scoreless innings tonight against the lowly Royals. Unfortunately, he pitched 6.2 innings total. The 5.2 scoreless came after the 1st inning that he pitched, in which he allowed 5 runs to plate. 5 friggin’ Royals ferkrinoutlowd! And what happened to the Sox bats?! Oh, Zack Greinke was pitching. He allowed only 2 hits, but he left after the 6th inning and the Sox managed no hits off the Royal bullpen.


Yeesh. Well, it was happening.

Sox Lose 1-5 BOX SCORE

The amount of FAIL that has occurred in the last 48 hours is almost too much to bear. Not that I was expecting to win the division, but it would've been nice to put the fear into the Bankees for this last series. That and if we can't beat the Royals it doesn't bode well for our chances in the playoffs.


Alright, fine, monday was a bad joke, give Grienke his Cy Young after last night, but no more excuses. I want two wins!

I happen to think the amount of fail that happened in the last 48 hours is minimal. Yes, we lost that first game we should have won. It happened. Our bullpen seems to have one glaring weakness....crazy arse rain.

And last night...who thought we were going to beat Greinke anyways? What wasn't failure is what Byrd did from the 2nd inning on. I expected he was going to be sitting in the dugout early and our bullpen was going to be burned out big time. Instead, Byrd settled in...and pitched 5 and change scoreless innings.

Sure..the 1st inning sucked and it was uncharacterist of Byrd. It cost us the game. However, I am still pretty impressed with what Byrdie did after that.

Come on Red Sox fans...we've been playing the best baseball in the league the last month or so. Don't let 2 games suddenly have you claiming the sky is falling again.

Have some faith. BELIEVE.

No one said or even implied that the sky is falling Shelley. It's the end of the year and it's the Royals. No excuses.

When you get to the post season you need to come ready to hit good pitching. We didn't do that last night.
