Game 153: Rehab

Final Score: Boston Red Sox 1, Toronto Blue Jays 6

That’s where the Red Sox are gonna send me. To freaking rehab. I am gonna be a burnt out shell by the time this season is over. The daily stress from being a fan of this up (the highest heights) and down (getting swept by the Blue Jays) baseball team is turning me into a zombie. I can’t believe how hard this team is trying to choke the season away.

And this isn’t even the real freaking team! Are they planning on starting Hinske and Kielty in the playoffs? Youk (wrist), Coco (back) and Manny (who freaking KNOWS anymore) not being in the lineup is as good a reason as any for only scoring 5 runs in this series. It’s a nightmare.

What’s happened to our bullpen? Once a mighty force, now it’s a sick joke. Oki is worn down and finally resting, Timlin and Delcarman are inconsistent and Gagne needs to be locked in a dungeon underneath the monster. The only guy I had ANY faith in was our boy Papelbon… and after the grand-slam he gave up today… I got nothing. He looks a worn out and beat as everyone else.

So now only 1.5 games up on the Yanks (who are hotter than the sun right now), must we look to the wild card? Detroit is sucking just as badly as the Sox, so it looks like we will make the playoffs… but man… this is ugly and sad. The Sox need to win some of these “must-win-games” or my head (and liver) might literally explode.
