    Hell Fucking No!

    This horrible nasty slump that we're in has dropped our lead over the second place team in all of baseball to a tiny 8 games. While this is certainly unacceptable, this team has lost 3 games in a row for only the second time this season.

    Our slump buster the first time? Eduardo Rodriguez. Our slump buster tonight? Brian Johnson.

    Look for big hits from the lefties in the lineup to knock out Carrasco early.

    13 days ago the Sox were 8 games up. They're still 8 games up.

    Folks need to stop whining.

    I was worried when it was 10.5. Worry is my natural state.

    Yes. I think we still have time to tank for the top pick in the draft next year.

    If the Sox aren't jinxed by the opening post misspelling, then there is no effect from gamethreads whatsoever. I hope your impulse to curse is erased by tonight's Sox victory, in any case.

    See, the problem is that too many different people are starting game threads lately. We need to do the thing where one guy starts several in a row, that always seems to lead to a win streak.

    You guys are delusional. This team is in huge trouble.

    Cleveland has exposed the Sox for what they are - a bad .700 winning percentage team (perhaps the worst in history). They are already in free fall mode and it's only going to get worse from here on out.

    If Sox fans aren't panicking they simply aren't paying attention.

    Worried no. But lets keep this margin above the number of games left vs the team behind us, ok?

    Yankees are streaking at 7-3 in their last 10

    Red Sox stumbling along at 6-4

    At this rate, the Sox are destined to cough up the lead in 90 more games

    I don’t think we shpould. And confidence is good. But they’ve looked a little different over the last three games, so it’s not surprising that some folks are.

    Win tonight, win tomorrow night, and rightsize this ship.

    I was worried it was all smooth sailing and the playoffs would be rough.

    Now I am worried that it is rough and they will not recover.

    I always thought there was a ten-day to two-week span of .500 or less ball between now and the end of the season. I can't say I like it, though.

    So they are now 10% or just one win better than a .500 team. Color me deeply concerned.

    Do we know if Dombrowski and Cora are monitoring the team's sleeping habits? I have a theory that the players aren't getting as much rest as earlier in the season.

    Maybe Cora should adopt the old Paul Brown method of keeping the players in hotels and therefore away from their wives the nights before games.

    I can't remember who I was joking about this with the other day-- @Huntington Avenue Grounds ?--but I love the all too rare significant digit humor in baseball. That third place beyond the decimal really messes with people.

    Well played.

    clearly the problem yesterday was that Mitch was batting 5th, not 3rd.

    come on Cora, really?

    Not panicked, but I would like to see them do better against a playoff team that could stand between them and a World Series appearance.

    Memories of 2011 and 1978 pestering me for some reason, but panics not entered my mind as yet. The magic number for panic to set in is if the lead dwindles to under 5 games with Sale still on DL

    Until then, relax
