Kenny Mack and I argue on The Sully Baseball Show

Monday Night Around The Majors/The Sully Baseball Show 04/16 by Seamheads | Blog Talk Radio

I had a completely different Podcast ready for tonight. And then I got a call from my friend Kenny Mack. And I recorded our call. We argued. We got under each others skin. And I actually ended editing out some of my insults.

It is on the second hour of the Seamheads Tuesday night block.

Oooooh I wanted that one

Anytime you take 3 of 4 from a playoff team, you should feel good.
ESPECIALLY when your team has looked awful and needed a jolt.

But I can’t help but be peeved.
1-0 losses are rough.
1-0 losses where Daniel Bard actually pitches well as a starter are worse.
1-0 losses where the only damn run is on a bases loaded walk as brutal.
1-0 losses where the tying and winning runs are on base and the final two called strikes are questionable make me grind my teeth.

I wanted to end this series at .500 and +1 in the Dodged Bullet/Teeth Grinder tally.

Does that make me greedy?
Maybe but after the first two weeks, the Sox could use some positive greed.

Let’s update the tally.


April 9 – 4-2 win in Toronto. (A day after blowing leads in the 9th and 11th, the Sox win their first game of the year with a 3 run 9th inning rally capped off by Ryan Sweeney’s 2 out go ahead RBI single)
April 14 – 13-5 win against Tampa Bay. (Buchholz fell behind 4-0 in the first but the Sox slugged 5 homers to come from behind.)
April 15 – 6-4  win against Tampa Bay. (David Ortiz doubled twice including a tie breaker in the 6th.)


April 5 – 3-2 loss in Detroit. (The Red Sox rally to tie the season opener with 2 outs in the 9th only to lose on a bases loaded walk off single by Austin Jackson.)
April 8 – 13-12 loss in Detroit. (The Red Sox bullpen surrender a 3 run game tying homer in the 9th to Cabrera and Avila smacked a 2 run, 2 out walk off come from behind homer to win it in as brutal a loss as you will ever see.
April 11 – 3-1 loss in Toronto. (Lester throws a complete game but Ricky Romero shut down Boston’s bats and Rajai Davis manufactured a critical run.)
April 16 – 1-0 loss against Tampa Bay. (Daniel Bard walks in the only run of the game with 2 outs in the 7th.)


OK, onto the two time defending champion Rangers.
I wouldn’t mind a winning record by the time they face the Yankees.
