A Putrid Loss to a Putrid Team on a Putrid Night

I'm not going to write much about this horrible loss by the Red Sox tonight. (But I did feel like doing what the pictured gorilla is doing after the bottom of the sixth ended.)

They walked 11 batters tonight, the most since August 2006. And they let a golden opportunity to make up ground in the AL East go right down the toilet.

They squandered a six-run lead on a rainy night to the awful Royals, who clearly aren't rolling over to the Red Sox like the Orioles did. I hope this wakes the Sox up and they take note.

It reminded me too much of that awful night in Baltimore in July. A rainy night when I was praying five innings could be played so the Sox could get perhaps a rain-shortened win. Starter leaves and the bullpen implodes.

And I do NOT want to see Manny Delcarmen in anything but garbage time for the remainder of this season. Or in October, for that matter.

Somebody remind me not to read this blog over breakfast.

Sorry, Matt. I couldn't resist the vomiting gorilla after what I saw last night. See you tonight for Trivia...
