This hyperbole isn't necessary even in a game thread. Yeah, they're going to lose 8 games in less than four weeks in the WC. Ok, dude.

Have you seen the upcoming schedules?

OK 10 might be a stretch but they aren’t making hay against good teams, because this team has zero bullpen and like 3.75 starting pitchers..

I’m getting to the point where I am waiting for seven more weeks to pass by, to watch the Patriots. I know they won’t win every game and they’ve been playing better lately, but when you think Sale is getting better, Price has this game. Awful.

I wish I had a buck for everytime O'Brien says "IF" during a broadcast. It might make a good drinking game for some, but I could never drink that much. I'd end up with alcohol poisoning.

Means, he sucks. He got lucky for a half and made an all-star game, like Steve Wright. Every team needs a representative, so he got the nod. Soon, he'll inevitably regress to his career mean of suck. Means sucks. I mean it.
Regress to his carreer MEANS?

If he in fact sucks, then your estimation of the skillfulness of the Sox must have taken a hit tonight.

Tonight has sucked, but I'm not giving up on the Sox. Somebody needs to stop those poseurs from The Bronx, and I think it has to be us. Again.

I'd be very happy with this season if we got to the ALDS and gave the Yanks all they could handle.

missing the playoffs entirely, which they are on track for at the moment, would be a massive disappointment. I think they took making the playoffs for granted, from front office to the players, subconsciously or not.

It's pretty hard to defend the spring training approach at this point. They would be right in the thick of thongs had they been remotely close to baseball-ready at the season's onset.

edit: I'm leaving the typo because its awesome.

Don Orsillo and Pedro were doing the national game on TBS last week. It was glorious. O’Brien sucks.
This should be the World Series team. If they can put the NBA all star game there, they can do so for the WS
Or just have joe buck retire already

yes, taking it easy in April looks very foolish now. Cora will learn or has already learned from it, I'm sure.

John Henry must be pissed watching his big payroll team lay down against these stiffs.
HEs gonna have his real team perform Sunday Mass in a couple days in the home dugout. Things should get better on Monday
