This is about as disappointed as I’ve been all season and I just don’t have much to say.
All that needs to be said is that in the opener of a crucial series at home against a mediocre pitcher and the last place team in the AL East, the Sox lose 5-1. Missed opportunity after missed opportunity by our hitters made it impossible for the South Siders to take advantage of a good outing by Gavin Floyd. And there was Pods, who has been so good for us this year, getting picked off again in scoring position.
It’s inexplicable why a team with this talent can’t rise to the occasion in these key spots. There’s still two more games so we still have a shot at winning the series, but now we’ve made it really tough on ourselves. I’d like to think we can get the job done, but the truth is I don’t know. Your guess is as good as mine.
