I love this team. I am a big fan of the players on it, both the personalities and the way they play. I think they could (and should) be a playoff contender for the entire season, even if my 97 in the wins prediction thread was largely tongue in cheek.

The Reds don't stink as much as people want them to, but these last two games (especially last night) have been two avoidable, unnecessary losses. Those types of losses are starting to pile up. This team is just not good enough to keep on losing games because of boneheaded plays, or baserunning, or lack of coaching, or.... you get the idea.

So, I suggest winning this game, tonight.

Changed the original title to present more of a positive vibe. Taking a few liberties and in my very best, raspy, Red Rocker voice...

You can't wait 'til tomorrow
Can't put it off another day.
Gotta work out all these problems
Just ain't no way to play

Swing and miss, you've lost your rhythm
Can't seem to put the ball in play
Losing ground, lost your traction
Throwin' the ball all over the place

One step ahead, one step behind
Take a breath, clear your mind
Let's make some strides, forget the month of May
C'mon turn, lets this thing around

Right now, it's your tomorrow
Right now, it's everything
Right now, get your ass in motion
Let's do it right here and now

LynnRice75 do your thing!!! ITP do your thing!!!
Boston Red Sox do your thing!!! WIN!!!

Game 56
It seems I write the same poem every day.
The Boston Red Sox keep finding a way
to put up a fight yet still lose the fray.
The way things have gone, it's easy to say
that our playoff dreams are going astray.
Our once-sunny start has turned a bit gray,
but I still have faith that we'll be okay.
Will I give up hope? The answer is "neigh."
No matter what happens, I'm here to stay.
I'll never root for a Yankee or Ray
nor for an Oriole or a Blue Jay.
I'll cheer for the Sox. I'll hope and I'll pray
that our cleats won't be stuck on feets of clay,
that the team will get tough, fight back, and slay,
opponents then feast like it's a buffet.
I know that this may sound a bit cliche
and blind faith may be a little passe,
but we still have lots of games left to play.
Let's show that the Sox still have some cachet.
Let's see our stars begin earning their pay.
Let's watch the youngsters build their resume.
Let's hope we got the June Swoon done in May.

(I'm off to a Spider-Man matinee.)

Somehow the man comes up with a gem everyday.
I wish someone on the Sox read them and realized that they're better than the product they've been handing us lately. Although that presupposes a lack of effort on their part, and I don't know if that's what's going on. Anyway, I find those gameday poems so consoling. They actually cheer me up if I'm down.

Duran lost track of where he was. He just doesn't have the instincts of an outfielder.

On the other hand, hell of a throw from Verdugo.
