A Season Gone Bad

As Paul Konerko said after last night’s sixth straight Sox loss–and a four-game sweep at the hands of the red-hot Yankees–“It is what it is.”

What it is, Sox fans, is the worst case scenario in a season that started out with great hope. But the potentially potent offense never manifested and the pitching that has been the reason we’ve hung in as contenders so long is now slumping. And after a 3-7 homestand, which actually began with a series win over the Tigers and a series opening victory over the Red Sox, we now face the Twins, a team we can’t beat to save our lives.

Six straight defeats, six games under .500 and six and a half games behind the division lead. 6-6-6, isn’t that a widely recognized symbol for the devil?

Hmm.
