Thanks A’s, we need all the help we can get

He look at that! They Rays lost!

The A’s showed a little pride and who knows? Maybe Oakland really wants to be part of the 500+ club.
Well either way, the Red Sox didn’t LOSE ground in the Wild Card chase but at this stage they need to start GAINING some.
Toronto comes to town for the Red Sox while the A’s have to face Jeremy Hellickson who has been unhittable his first three games. I guess he is due.
Come on A’s. Give us a hand.

2 out of 3 isn’t good enough

For my friends who think I am being cynical about the Red Sox 2010 chances and that I am already looking towards 2011, let me present today’s game.

Beckett was great for 5 then got hammered and the Red Sox not only lost but it wasn’t even a teeth grinder.
They took 2 of 3 from the Angels… and it wasn’t good enough.
They needed to SWEEP in order to even keep pace with the Yankees.
In trying to make up nearly a week of games with a month and a half to go, they need a 5 or 6 game winning streak… winning series is inadequate.
2 out of 3 might be fine for Meat Loaf, but not for the 2010 Red Sox.
