How much more awful can it get for the 2014 Boston Red Sox than today?
They had a lead, then lost it, they tied it and fell behind and their comeback rally came short.
First 10 game losing streak since 1994… even Bobby V didn’t drop 10 in a row. Not even the Beer and Fried Chicken Crew did that.
And to make everything worse, the Red Sox had a fight that made them look sore losers to boot.
Oh, to make today worse? Josh Beckett threw a no hitter.
Want to make it worse? Derek Jeter had a great day.
Even worse? EVERY other team in the AL East won.
How about stranger? Manny Ramirez is reentering the world as a player coach and mentor.
I feel like Lt. Dan on the boat with Forrest Gump screaming at the storm “IS THIS THE BEST YOU CAN DO!”
Let’s get to the updated Dodged Bullet/Teeth Grinder tally.
An explanation of what this is all about can be found HERE.
GIANTS DODGED BULLET – TEETH GRINDER Tally
24 Dodged Bullets 13 Teeth Grinders
TOTAL: + 11
A’S DODGED BULLET – TEETH GRINDER Tally
J. A. Happ shut down anyone not named Josh Donaldson and the Blue Jays pulled off the sweep of the A’s with a 3-1 win. TEETH GRINDER
17 Dodged Bullets 18 Teeth Grinders
RED SOX DODGED BULLET – TEETH GRINDER Tally
The Red Sox losing streak reached an epic 10 games. Not even Jonny Gomes’ homer could save the team that could fight on the field but not for a win. A Tampa 8-5 win TEETH GRINDER
14 Dodged Bullets 20 Teeth Grinders
20 of the Red Sox 29 losses, they had a shot to win. Keep that in mind.
Is this any way to defend a championship???
