If The Red Sox Had A Real Manager They’d Be In First Place By 10 Games, Instead Of Winning By 10 And Losing By 1 Like They Always Do

The Red Sox lost to the Blue Jays 3-2 tonight – the 21st time this season they’ve lost by exactly one run. That’s insane. What makes it worse is the night before they beat the Blue Jays 13-2. In other words they’ve outscored them 15-4 but the series is at 1-1. Those nine extra runs they scored in the first game? Worth shit. Don’t get me wrong – it’s been AMAZING to watch the renaissance of the bats this year. But the fact that this team hits like it does and the fact that Ric Porcello is gonna win 20 games, means this team should be in first in the AL East by at least 10 games.

But they’re not. Because winning by 10 runs and then losing the next day by one has been their M.O. all season. It’s the sign of a shitty manager, plain and simple. If they don’t win by a million then they don’t win.

If the Red Sox had a real manager like Joe Girardi they’d be clinching the division this week. The Yankees are 76-65. Eleven games over .500. This is a team that literally gave up and threw in the towel at the trade deadline. They have a run differential of -5. Ya got that? A team that’s been outscored on the season is 11 games above .500 and in the hunt for a playoff spot. Why? Oh yea, because they’ve won 24 games by exactly one run. That’s what good managers do. If Turtleboy was managing the Red Sox on Friday night they would’ve won that game. Because ANYONE can win a game when your team scores 13 runs. But you pay managers to win the close ones. Because when you’re playing in October, you’re gonna be in nailbiter games. And the Red Sox are great and all, but anyone who feels confident about this team winning a close game in October is delusional.

So yea, it’s been AWESOME to have a relevant team once again. But what makes us the greatest fans in America is the fact that we demand the most from our teams. This team SHOULD make the playoffs, but if they don’t win the division, what use is it? You wanna be in a one game wild card playoff against a Red Sox killer like Chris Tillman or Justin Verlander or J.A. Happ? Cuz I don’t. I’d rather by in first place by 10 games and be guaranteed to have homefield until the World Series. Just sayin.

    The Sox HAD a good manager, but ownership/upper management smeared him and ran him out of town.

    He’s a candidate for manager of the year in Cleveland. Cleveland!

    Farrell should have been fired for the stupidity of putting Wright in as a pinch-runner.

      He actually won Manager of the Year with Cleveland in 2013

      If Dombrowksi was around back then, Tito would still be here. Or, Drombrowksi would have quit when they fired Tito.

      • BobnMic
        September 12, 2016 at 5:14 am

        Hey – “me go away” whatever. But I will agree if Tito was still here there would not have been so many bone head decisions aka putting Steven Wright to pinch run? That has to be the worst decision I ever saw in my 127 years of watching MLB. Well maybe not that long. And that was a poor decision Wright there (pun) and may have fucked up Steven Wrights’ entire season which could hurt us down the stretch but thank God Porcello, Price, ERod are front liners (having good seasons) but if we only can get Steven Wright back I could sit back, crack a brew and chill. That would be four solid starters and with Papi, Pedi, Bogey, Mookey, JBJ, Hanley, Shaw and the rest (Chris Young) killing it – I envision awesomeness! Yaa baby!

        Go Sox and FUCK all yankee fans everywhere and especially on here and fucking march them all to the drowning pool. Glug glug glug – nite nite fuckheads. Now do the dead man’s float…

    Look at this – an actual article about sports and no one comments. Fucking cracking me up here. Hey Fiesty what do you think there cupcake? Did you know that the Red Sox were a Major League baseball team right? From Boston? No? Do you know what Major League baseball even means? Oh ok that makes sense. Just keep being a Social Justice Warrior and trashing everybody within 5 feet from you. And picking on an entire family from the same town that you live in. Yup, God has a seat awaiting in heaven for you. Ya right. Sorry, no drama here on this one.

    Anyway – I think with the way Rick Porcello is pitching with 20 wins already, truly the Ace of the team, and if somehow Steven Wright can make it back with the consistency of the bats we may in fact have a shot at the playoffs. And what 2004 and 2013 proved is that once you get to that level anything is possible moving forward. We’re in first place currently as of this writing with I believe with 21 games left – if we can hold on to at least a wild card – this October could be very nice…

      Amazing how I am gone for a few days enjoying a last minute peaceful vacation with the ones I love… I come back and catch up on some reading and 9 out of your last 12 posts have mentioned me. You have literally wrote about me all weekend… I am NOT any of those people following you. What is wrong with you? There is NO WAY you can have a normal functioning brain, no way at all.

      Alas, to answer your stupid question – baseball is my favorite sport (football is second). I don’t know if you noticed but I’m kind of tomboy-ish, NO? I played Softball from the age of 6 all the way up until my Junior year of college in MA. Man… You sure don’t talk about baseball the way a fan would. I would ask you a bunch of questions to prove that, but all you’re going to do is use google.

      Porcello may be your idea of an “ace” and sure he has earned that title this season as no other starting pitcher has hit the 20 W mark, however, his career stats for a 7 year MLB pitcher are far from stellar. Perhaps this is his lucky season, let’s see what he does for the Red Sox next season. Don’t discount that he has had HEALTHY run support in most of his winning games. What other starters do you have who are decent besides Price? Your closers aren’t quite the way they were in 2004, nor 2013 either. Porcello and Wright can’t start every game in the post season. Price has a better overall record, you aren’t sucking his dick because he hasn’t hit 20 wins and of course you probably chose the pitcher who’s name is in the media more, what a true baseball fan. Typical October fan. Price and Porcello have an “almost” comparable ERA by the way… LOL.

      Also, what the FUCK do you mean the Red Sox “may” have a shot at the playoffs? If you knew anything about baseball you would know the Red Sox have the HIGHEST percentage right now in the AL East (somewhere in the late 80’s) of being in the post season. You have no idea what you’re talking about. Maybe YOU should have avoided posting on a sports article…. No? Well, they also play like SHIT against the Orioles at home, so who knows, maybe a sweep? One can only hope (seeing as how the yanks have a 20% chance of stealing that Wild card spot). So, I’m actually rooting for the Orioles to sweep the Sox. If we had a chance, I would have rooted for the RS to sweep Toronto, and the Orioles, and hope Detroit loses the rest of their games, but that’s seemingly impossible now. However, the yanks are only 4 games away! Ahhh Post season madness only a true fan can understand – which you are not.

      Do you understand how fucked the RS schedule is? They are playing teams who are also fighting for first, as well as chasing the wildcard. No room for mistakes.

      Steven Wright won’t be pitching again in the regular season… That bum shoulder. What’s a knuckler without the shoulder to throw it? Respect Buchholz, he has done the best he has all season filling in for Wright. He’s still a shitty pitcher though lol. Funny you mention Wright when stat wise, Price is a far superior starter. Oh, that’s right you mention Wright because again, his bum shoulder updates have been all over NESN, in prayers that he MAY pitch again before the post-season. Nope! Not gonna happen, bud. Holy SHIT do you even WATCH baseball? I know more about the RS and I’m not even a RS fan.. I’m a Yankee fan (not because I was someone who jumped on the wagon but because I was born and raised there and my older brother didn’t want me to be a Mets fan like him – 6 and 8 year old sibling rivalry at it’s finest.)

      Please don’t talk about baseball anymore, ever. You are clueless. Baseball 101 for the October Fan, you’re welcome.

      I’m going to follow everyone else (WHO IS NOT ME) here and say “GO AWAY BOB!”

      • BobnMic
        September 12, 2016 at 1:10 am

        FiestyFuckFace – you have not one clue what you are talking about. And I knew you were a yankee fan because all yankee fans suck with the “I’m super intelligent and the rest of you are inferior idiots” attitude just like fucking you. I simplified my remarks. No need to throw down stats to impress.

        You have to post a dissertation of nonsense that, in your feeble brain, attempts to make you look like you know what the fuck you are talking about. But any real baseball fan who read that with their respective eyes bleeding knows that you are just a bag of bullshit as usual.

        Have you picked out another family to degrade yet or are you still on the same one? Fucking scumbag.

          Oh almost forgot. Nice job hiding your incriminating evidence over the weekend (that you supposedly were away which is bullshit) from Youtube. I really wish you would re-post it now. I fucking dare you.

            September 12, 2016 at 7:47 am

            I made it private because it’s not YOUR video to post around, it’s mine. Simple as that. Nothing is incriminating because guess what, you have no idea who I am. Thank God because if you stalk even 20% in person how you stalk online, I would have to sleep with one eye open.

            You and Kevin Lynch should fuck and become a couple. So many similarities.

            No one here hates you because they thought you were Greg. They hate you because you don’t shut up and your posts are as dry as Kevin’s anus when he was getting raped by his bunk buddy in jail.

            You are the shit stain of this place. The real stubborn kind that not even bleach can get rid of.

          I have never seen a Mama Bear post here before. So, you decide your first comment is going to be attacking me on the basis in which I used simple past tense of wrote instead of written, yet fail to mention the incorrect spelling of my name.

          Sure!! I would say welcome to the blog, but you’ve been here before. Usually from 1am until 5am and then sleep most of your day away.

            September 12, 2016 at 1:46 pm

            Just the fact that you seem to know the usernames of everyone who comments here says a lot about how much time you waste on this site. Thus my advice to “get a life.”

            September 12, 2016 at 1:50 pm

            I don’t know the usernames of everyone, but a place like this has regulars. A new person coming in solely to attack me is definitely borderline sketchy. Really, whoever you are, go play with yourself.

        September 12, 2016 at 11:49 pm

        Don’t I know that Mama. But what can you do. I got shit to do during the day most of the time. So I go after the one punk in here after hours that fucks with anyone with a serious slant on a presented topic. No biggy.

        Speaking of punks – oh and FiestyFakeLawyer, quote unquote, “No one here hates you because they thought you were Greg.” Wow, key word thought. Is this an admission of guilt that you were wrong this whole time and that you are not really Sherlock Holmes and really not that smart? And you wonder why I got so fucking pissed at you and counter punched? Not to mention an entire family that you degraded here on the fucking internet. That was insanely low.

        Does that really surprise you? And by the way – stop speaking for everybody on here like you are some sort of Queen Bee. I will not speak for anyone else but my “best guess” is that everyone knows you a Pathological Liar and a Sociopath. Fiesty your ship is sinking. Jump off while you can.

            September 14, 2016 at 12:28 am

            So Fiesty what are you going to do about this now – now that you are some how coming to the realization that you fucked up accusing the man in question of being me? Huh? Listen – I know you will never apologize to me because I fought back hard and I know apologizing to me would be way too far beneath you. You’d rather hang on to your empty foolish pride and continue to be a douche bag. It’s a better fit for you anyway.

            But if you have just even one ounce of decency or a slight shred of compassion – you will contact that man who you thought I was (I won’t even say his name on here anymore because that family has been through enough thanks to you) and apologize. It was apparent that you know him. That guy did nothing to you and it sounds like you know him either through family or whatever it is. He and his wife need an apology from you STAT. I told you – you were wrong but you would not listen. If I was him I’d be out of my mind livid. You best go and make amends and save yourself.

            Hey you can tell me to go fuck off all you want. I would never in a million years accept any kind of apology from you anyway because you took this way way to far. But I fought fire with fire so I don’t expect even an attempt of anything from you. But that family does very much. Do the right thing and grow up for once on your life.
