Thought Dunn might walk off, but it was not to be.

Default *Official* 6/11 Give Another One Away; Toronto-7 Sox-5

This is why they can't put anything together. Another game urinated away.

5th time this year they lost when having a lead in the 7th inning or later.

Early opinion on Troncoso...another meatball Sox minor league pitcher.

That is all.

New catcher please. One that doesn't try to backhand everything and can hold onto the ball at the plate.

Daver's ass could catch the ball better than Tyler Flowers. Alexei with another mental blunder, more errors, and just overall bad baseball.

Who was the last Sox catcher to be this poor defensively?

If you care about the fans, you demote/release Tyler Flowers NOW!

No excuses. Hold these *******s accountable.

I don't really blame the bullpen. Reed was pitching his fourth day in a row. Why did he pitch last night? (I guess he was warmed up for a close game so you just as soon let him pitch). The other guy is just one of those veterans who's been lousy his whole career. I don't know why the Sox love these veteran stiffs, but I can't blame him as he didn't sign himself or put himself into the game.

Ventura has got to develop more flexibility in the bullpen. Reed doesn't need to close every team. For goodness sakes don't wear his arm out and pull a Thigpen on this crappy team.

Alexei has pulled that stunt many times, he's so scared of getting hit by the baserunner most the time he catches the ball on the third base side thus eliminating any chance of a throw out. Tonight , he once again took his eye of the ball and dropped it for fear of being hit by the runner. He's been doing the same thing for years. At this point I would trade him for a bag of used baseballs if they had anything better.

Alexei dropping that throw to 2nd didn't help matters, but I'm rapidly losing patience with Flowers. Two passed balls leading to two runs directly contributed to the loss today.

Reed left a pitch up and a very good hitter took advantage of it. It happens.

Reed has been used a lot lately and that pitch was up but there's 2 or 3 players in the league that could hit that out .

Why was Beckham in the lineup tonight? He forgot how many outs there were last night in committing one of his baserunning blunders. Nobody is ever held accountable.

More nonsense from Ramirez.

More clown catching from Flowers.

"This is hard to watch," Hawk said.

Rick Hahn is choking big-time.

Bases loaded, nobody out, and we can't get one single run.

Then add on all the crap mental mistakes/defensive errors and we got exactly what we deserved.

Alexei has that Carlos Lee syndrome. He is definitely talented but there is something there that just doesn't quite click. Unfortunately we don't have any better options. Maybe Anderson someday. Until then its just spinning our wheels.
