1. And weekend series versus the Yankees coming up...
Edited on Thu Apr-07-11 02:19 PM by brendan120678
might the Red Sox start the year at 0 - 9 before finally playing a team they can beat, the Tampa Bay Rays?

2. Cleveland is not a good team
and they just swept us. I'm not sure we can beat anyone, so don't think the Rays can't do what Cleveland and Texas did.

Unreal.

3. 1-0 is more troubling.
Zero!

Can't win if you don't score. The bare minimum is 1 to win. :think:

4. Lester pitched great.
No run support from our allegedly devastating offense. Argh.

5. We suck, no doubt about it...Francona is a good coach and a bad coach...
he knows the game, but he does not inspire...and over the last couple years they've needed someone who can motivate and inspire them...it will be a lousy season and Francona will be gone half way through.

10. I haven't had any faith in the pitching since Farrell left for Toronto.
He was hugely undervalued, imo.

12. Well, he was there last year and they didn't have good pitching...
everyone thinks they have good pitching because of the reputation of some guys who did well previously...Beckett hasn't been good since 2007, Lester starts slow, Dice-K needs to go...lackey was a big mistake...

14. I was hoping last season was an anomaly.
Now, it looks like a trend. Oh, wait! 156-6! Remember, you heard it here, first! :rofl:

6. I love it! The team with the $49,188,867 payroll
dominated the team with the $161,407,476 payroll. Cleveland played sound defense, executed the fundamentals and pitched surprisingly solid. Qualities of good teams.

7. Only two more to go to break their all time record of 0-8 in 1945.

11. I wonder if Adrian Gonzales is missing the lineup protection he had in SD.
Hey, at least the Sox aren't in the basement alone. If they could win 89 last year sporting a starting outfield of Daniel Nava, Darnell McDonald and Ryan Kalish, along with god knows who at 1st and 2nd base and "clean up hitter" Kevin Cash for half a season, I'm sure they'll be fine this season if they stay healthy.

13. It's only April
I wouldn't worry too much. Yet. They still have time to turn it around.
