Here’s a sure sign the Red Sox are terrible: the Sox vs. Jays game is on opposite the Orioles vs. Yankees game (a game that actually means something), and despite your allegiance to the Boston nine, you’d rather watch the O’s beat the Yankees. (I’m sure Yankees fans are still fuming over that bad call to end the game.) At least you know these guys are playing with heart. Plus, two hours worth of rain delays sort of makes watching the Sox even more tormenting.
Although, I will say I almost would rather watch the rain delay footage on NESN than the actual game. Don and Jerry did an #AskJerry segment where you could submit questions on Twitter and they would answer them on air. I had submitted a question during Friday night’s rain delay and it was actually used last night!! Pretty pathetic when that’s the most exciting that happened during the game.
Here was my question:
I was hoping they would discuss something like the Boob Grab of 2011. But they were thinking of the present and actually talked about how they had been practicing how to pronounce the last name of the Blue Jays third baseman – Adeiny Hechavarria. Neither one of them could seem to get it right and just the inning before, Don had a meltdown trying to get it right. I swear, if it weren’t for Don and Jerry, I might never watch a game.
Honestly, I didn’t care what the answer was, I was just giddy that they actually picked my question. Hey… give me a break. I’ve got very little good stuff to hold onto this season. Very, very little.
In case you missed it, the Jays beat the Sox 9-2 last night. Daisuke Matsuzaka once again proved that the win a couple weeks ago was a total fluke and he just plain sucks. He lasted an eternal 1.1 innings and gave up five runs on five hits. What happened to the Dice-K that went 18-3 in 2008? Here’s one pitcher I’m not going to be sad to see go once this season is over…
The Red Sox line up was almost as crappy as the pitching, mustering just two measly runs. Can you at least make it look like your trying? No one deserves to be named here. Nothing exciting happened. Everyone stunk.
Click here if you care to see the crappy box score, courtesy of the Red Sox. The Sox have on more chance to beat the Jays this afternoon behind Clay Buchholz. Or they could just lay down and give up like they seem to do every day and fall even further down into the cellar all by their lonesome.
PS: I’m afraid I’m going to have to pass on watching this game today… because I am ready for some football and the Patriots!! Finally… a team that plays like a team and a coach that doesn’t take any shit.
