Game 57 Thoughts

Freddy pitched pretty well against a potent offense. He got into trouble in the first, but he escaped without surrendering any runs. It’s a bit troubling that he gave up so many homers. All the runs he gave up were on solo shots.

BMac pitched well. He looked real good for the first time in a while.

I’m not impressed with the offense’s performance. In the first inning we had Pods on third with one out, and we didn’t score. In the seventh, Thome was up with the bases loaded with one out, and again the Sox came up empty handed. If it wasn’t for a flukey homer by Cintron we’re on the wrong end of a demoralizing loss.

Big ups to Cintron. Apparently he picked up on Rodney’s pitching pattern. He noticed that he followed a change with a fastball, so he sat on the fastball and knocked it out of the park. It was the perfect time for his first homer of the year. I know it’s early, but this could be one of the defining moments of the Sox season.

I’ve been a strong defender of Brian Anderson all season, but games like these, 0-4 with a golden sombrero, keep giving his detractors more and more ammo.

Dye has 17 home runs. Just thought you should know.
Jenks was lights out. He is pitching great for us.
