A win tonight would be much appreciated. If you need something more than an early August win against Kansas City to cheer yourself up heading into the weekend, this video should provide all the happiness you need.

"That was the moment that changed everything."

It sure as shit was.

2004/2007/2013/20128 are the reasons why I just can't get torqued off over the current state of affairs with the team.

Seeing the misery I've seen since 1967 will do that to you; any fan who came aboard say in the early 2,000's; you have no fucking idea what it was like to be a Red Sox fan from 1967-2003.

You lucky assbag.

Contrast that MFY video whine-fest with the class that Pedro showed after a defeat by saying he tips his hat and calls the Yankees 'my daddies'. You wouldn't see Pedro crying like an entitled little bitch.

The losses eat at you forever, the wins are a temporary high.

Just ask any member of that 2007 New England Patriots team; each of them will take that loss to the Giants to their grave; bad enough you lost a Super Bowl, but THAT one, 19-0 on the line, immortality, history and all that.

And they blew it.

.174/.216/.304 over his last 74 plate appearances. .599 OPS in July.

Yeesh. I knew he was cold but that's putrid.
It's why I was resigned to not getting anything for him. No sane team could be comfortable giving up a C level prospect for him. It isn't just the numbers, though, the eye test backs it up completely.

I honestly wouldn't be surprised if he hangs it up after this season.

I really think this was another whiff on Bloom- could have Schwarber…. And likely dealt JD during the off-season for something.

Edit- and I like Bloom and think he’s generally good and with a good game plan.

Schwarber hasn't really been any better, I wouldn't be thrilled to have him locked up at 20 a year for 3 more years

So, they missed the call. What's the best case scenario, two runs in and Perez on second base?

Duran - CF
Pham - LF
Devers - 3B
Bogaerts - SS
Verdugo - RF
Martinez - DH
Hosmer - 1B
McGuire - C
Sanchez - 2B
If you replace Sanchez with Arroyo (or eventually Story), and if you replace Duran with Kike, and if everyone hit close to their potential, that would be a very deep and solid lineup.

Yeah. I know. Lots of ifs in there, but it’s true.

He stood there watching the ball, and the 3rd base ump (I think) gave him the homer signal.
So, he started trotting. IF he was running out of the box and the ump didn't call it, maybe he gets the rare "slow guy" inside the parker.
That ball really took a ride after it hit the post.

He was running down to first making the home run call. The third base umpire ruled only that it was a fair ball, and was overruled by the HP umpire.

I agree with the slow guy homer though.

DOB forgot how many outs there were: "As Winckowski looks for a ground ball here ... slight pause ... with two down"
