The Nightmare Continues

(April 24)

Short Take:  When can we play Cleveland again?

The Sox offense scored four runs Tuesday.  As can be expected in the American League, the Sox also lost.  The big bop came on a grand slam by Oakland's lumbering ox, Jason Giambi.  It really didn't make much difference because the Sox are just waiting for disaster to befall them; Giambi was just the latest guy to do the deed on behalf of the opposition.  Sox lose 6-4.  What else is new?

For those of you keeping score at home, that makes four losses in a row for the Pale Hose.  Mark Buerhle was the latest victim on the pitching mound.  Yes, he got roughed up by Giambi, but you can't blame him for much else.  The Athletics only managed three other hits off him.  Kelly Wunsch and Lorenzo Barcelo combined for two scoreless innings--which is a plus.  A walk and a triple in the ninth ruined Bob Howry's ninth inning effort.  It hardly made any difference since the Sox were behind and they sure as hell weren't mounting a comeback.

Frank Thomas was giant 0 for 4 in the #3 spot.  Once again, Jerry Manuel's #2 man was Royce Clayton who contributed two mighty hits to match his two strikeouts.  Hey look, his batting average has soared to .143.  Jerry Manuel is a genius because he knows Jose Valentin can't hit .143 against lefties either.  Oh wait, yes he can.  Never mind.

Ray Durham managed to reach base twice, both on walks.  That's better than he has been doing.  Magglio Ordonez was a mighty 0 for 2 which also represents improvement.  He showed some patience and walked twice.  Maybe there is hope after all, Sox Fans.

The Sox got to their former teammate Chad Bradford for one run in a seventh inning relief performance.  That's what we Sox Fans have been reduced to, rooting against ex-players.

This season gets more pathetic all the time.

Batted in the Sox's first run leading the Sox to an early lead.  It didn't hold up, of course.
