We've Been In 0-3 Holes Before

I'll do my best to forget this lost weekend in Texas.

Before I do:

9 home runs allowed by Red Sox starters (4 by Clay Buchholz in Sunday's 5-1 loss), 11 homers by the staff, almost no clutch hitting, Jonathan Papelbon up to his old tricks in the 8th, allowing a run and loading the bases with no outs before striking out the side.

Take nothing away from the Texas Rangers. They outscored the Sox, 26-11, and outplayed them in all facets of the game all weekend and lived up to their defending American League Champions title.

We've been in 0-3 holes before as you know. (Last time in the regular season: 1996. Postseason: 2004.)

Hopefully the Red Sox show up in Cleveland against the Indians on Tuesday night.

They sure as hell didn't in Arlington this past weekend.

My goodness, the way some fans are reacting, you'd swear that they are are spoiled Yankee fans.

How many more games to go? Now take a deep breath and come off the ledge.
