Boston Starts Season 0-6

INDIANS 1, RED SOX 0

Cleveland just earned a series sweep of the Red Sox, the first time they've done so since 2001. Boston falls to 0-6 to start the season, the first time they've done so since 1945. Next up? The Yankees. Good times in the AL East, where the Orioles (!) and Blue Jays (!) lead the division.

It's incredibly frustrating. This post does not help.

I want to root against your team to make myself feel better, but that wouldn't really work here.

Orel said...

I'm having fun with this now, but it's just two series. They'll get it together, and all this will be a distant memory. Which is why I'm having fun with this now.

Spank said...

Erin's comment has confused the shit out of me. Are you a Dodger fan or Red Sox fan?

I'm digging the 0-6 start.

Erin said...

Both, Spank. I used to write a blog about being a fan of both.

and who was batting lead-off for the Expos that day?

Delino fucking DeShields.

It's funny to look back 20 years and see how much the Dodger uniform has changed.



. . .oh wait.

Brad Penny, 0-1 and his 16.62 ERA, starts for the Tigers (@ Orioles) in five minutes.

Is the Phillies leading the Mets Schadenfreude?

Steve Sax said...

Just got a Nick Markakis badge (Orioles)! Even though Brian Roberts actually hit the double!

Yay, flaws in the mlb.com badge system! I feel like I just got an extra ticket from the skee-ball machine.

Steve Sax said...

Adam Jones just bombed a two-run HR with one out to tie the game and chase Penny. 4-4 in the bottom of the sixth inning at OP@CY.

The said...

My Sox-friendliness is well documented, but 2007 is a lot nearer than 1988. I think those lads will be just fine.

Paul said...

The The is right my Boston bros should be cryin for me. They should being starting an intervention at this point.
