Horrible stretch here highlighted by many quality starts and no resemblance of a fighting offense. We have had some decent individual performances but cannot put anything together.

When September call-ups happen, I hope those guys play most of the time.

At least we're not making it easy on Houston.

Yet another game that ends with a "first time in franchise history," moment. Setting new lows and doing in historic fashion. Why do I keep watching.

Axelrod is pretty much a guaranteed L when he comes in now, which is sad to see. The guy battled his butt of in the first half, but looks to have completely lost it all.

It sucks less when you know it's gonna happen.

Funny bad. Oddly enough, I'm not disgusted anymore. It's like watching your kid's really bad little league team. Oh well, we're only 3-5 years away.

In defense of all the pitchers, it's gotta be rough pitching when you know your club isn't going to score any runs anyway.

Any chance the Sox already know who RV's replacement is and can Ventura come Sept 1 in order to give the new guy some time to learn the expanded roster.

Unlikely, I know. But in my mind he's already a lame duck.

First 10-game losing streak in over 35 years. Wow.

I agree, I don't know how how go out there every day, knowing if you give up a run, you stand about an 80% chance of taking the loss.

Only this team can have a 10 game losing streak while the pitchers post a ERA below 2.70. If this team even resembled a decent offense they would have won more games.

Only reason I'm watching tomorrow is the A-Rod circus.

First winless road trip in franchise history. Bar just keeps getting lowered each week. Hard to believe it could get any lower.

Mariano Rivera is another reason to watch the Sox this week

Why? Each game will be a blowout for the Yanks. We won't see him pitch. I wonder what the Sox will give him as a present though.

I'm not sure it's ever appropriate for a fan to actually despise the team they root for, but this team sure makes a compelling case for it.
