Game The Fourth: Meet the New Josh, same as the Old Josh

BOS 1 4 1
CLE 3 5 1

One would think that a quality baseball team like the Boston Red Sox would come off of a severe beat down deep in the heart of Texas, and they would come up to poor Cleveland and take out 3 games worth of hurt and embarrassment on their poor LeBronless selves. One would think that. One would be wrong.

The Red Sox went down like grain before a thresher, letting young Josh Tomlin have his way with them to the tune of 7 innings with only 3 hits and 1 run allowed. Josh Beckett pitched adequately for Boston, allowing 3 runs over 5 innings, but, just like Buchholz' efforts down south, too little, and too late.

If I were billionaire Red Sox owner John Henry, I might be asking myself why exactly I am paying Carl Crawford American money, because Josh Reddick, and perhaps even Josh Groban, could hit .133.

I know that's irrational, and I don't care. I'm frustrated.

  1. I'm right there with you. You are basically my only connection to what's going on w/ my team, and I'm looking forward to the post that says "yay the sox finally did something positive" (you can paraphrase that... I'm sure you won't use "yay"... but then again, maybe it will be a "yay" kind of moment).
