If Red Sox fans can’t count on Koji Uehara, then what hope is there? All the momentum of the great Yankee series went into the toilet as the Sox once again could not put together a rally against one of the worst teams in baseball.

Can they really afford to waste good pitching performances by Clay Buchholz and Jake Peavy?

The Sox handed the ball to Koji thinking a single run in the 9th would be a win. Suddenly they were playing catch up and Jerry Meals borderline call at first clinched the game.

8 games under .500 in July? Might be time to think about selling.

A’s lose an odd one and the Giants climb back into first.

Time to update the Dodged Bullet/Teeth Grinder tally.

An explanation of what this is all about can be found HERE.
