Thanks Anyway, Tek

On a night when the Red Sox honored their retired captain Jason Varitek, they at least could have had the decency to beat the last-place Toronto Blue Jays.

Good start with an early Jarrod Saltalamacchia three-run bomb in the second. Then the offense totally went to sleep, as they got just two hits the rest of the way.

Aaron Cook was sharp early, but allowed two home runs in the 6th and 7th, and the night was basically lost, 7-3.

I've rarely seen a more maddening Red Sox team than this one. They open the second half by taking 2 of 3 from Tampa Bay, beat the White Sox 3 of 4 with a fantastic finish to cap the series. So I think we might finally be seeing them come together and make some hay, especially having to go to Texas and New York next week. Then two ugly losses to the team in last in their division at home.

You'll pardon me if my enthusiasm isn't running wild right now.
