Red Sox Lose Another, This Time in the 15th

I have never believed in karma before, at least not as a supernatural force.  I don’t think that stuff gets evened out just that easily.  But the past 4 years, the Red Sox are starting to make me think it does exist.

After a horrifying end to the 2011 and even more horrifying 2012 season, the 2013 Red Sox went on a magical run to another World Series title.  Now, they’re paying for that.  Don’t get me wrong, that’s a very fair trade; 1 for 4 is awesome as long as that 1 is a title.

But that doesn’t mean that the 2014 season doesn’t blow.  The Sox dropped their 9th straight today, and it was just heartbreaking.  They were up 5-0 after 1, and lost 6-5 in the 15th.  I think they had like 3 hits after that first inning, because fuck me, right?

Somehow, it gets worse.  David Ortiz wasn’t in the lineup, and just looks old.  He can still hit a baseball a mile, but he can’t move.  Mike Napoli will be out for a few days.  Shane Victorino just went on the DL, and Xander Bogaerts left the game tonight with a hamstring cramp, and we hope it’s not more serious.

Should I keep going?  Why not.  Jake Peavy hasn’t been the guy that they traded for, Will Middlebrooks, when healthy, looks like a bust.  There are 5 players (5!) who have more than .2 WAR (Ortiz, Pedey, Bogaerts, Napoli, and Pierzynski), and it’s fucking May 24th.

The Sox are now in the Al East’s basement, and they’re 7 games back of first.

Fuck me, right?
