Sox are banished from my television for a few days. Excruciating.

This is not a major league roster on offense. It is embarrassing and a total slap in the face to everyone who supports this team year after year.

They knew damn well after last season about the shortcomings of this team on offense and did NOTHING to change it. They added zero depth even though it was clear that was an area we were lacking in. Don't know what the hell Hahn was doing.

Boneheaded plays on defense are becoming the norm and that is surprising to me but when maybe they are feeling more pressure knowing that if they allow a run to cross home plate its probably a loss.


And we suck in extra innings.

A couple of Hahn's moves have actually been amongst the few bright spots this year, specifically Gillaspie and Lindstrom.

I get the argument he should've done more, but if he had his hands tied by the payroll gods he's done well in some of the moves at the edges.

You can cite Keppinger as a rebuttal but I don't think anyone figured he'd be this atrocious.

I agree and disagree. Keppinger seemed like the right move at the time. Regarding depth, well that involved resources which were probably not provided to Hahn. I guess he could have done more dumpster diving but that would have probably been fruitless anyway.

We are lucky this is a horrible division. The Royals are in first place at 8-7. If the Sox can get one good week, they can be in first place! Oh wait...that requires scoring, which the Sox can't do.

That was a wasted afternoon. I thought about going down to the ballpark with the kids tomorrow, but after today's performance I have zero motivation to do that.

Oh, and if Adam Dunn is batting cleanup tomorrow I will seriously stop watching altogether.

I've seen about 12 innings total this year, six of them today. It may stay that way a while.

Just a bad team with quite possibly the worst hitter in the history of baseball. Get some stones and bench this guy

I'm not gonna spend much time watching this team this year. It's just not fun to watch guys flailing for 20 run HR's like it's little league.

I didn't purchase MLB.tv this season due to a lack of time to watch baseball. I was planning on enjoying a game that was broadcast over the satellite channels we get in Israel.

So much for the enjoyment of the game.

How bad was that Alexei Ramirez play in the 10th? Farmer said Alexei would have had the runner at third by 20 feet.

It wasn't a great throw but it is the sort of throw that Paulie is able to scoop up. I also seem to recall that he had to move so throwing to third wasn't much of an option.
