      so they won't win 160 games...

      i'm not guessing the pirates will win 2 out of every 3 the rest of the way either

          I'm concerned, but again...it's only April 3.

          I don't think we should be worrying about our bullpen if our starters are getting shelled. It's one thing to be giving up unearned runs, or having inherited runners score. But giving up as many HRs as we did over this weekend doesn't inspire confidence. 9 out of 10 HRs aren't due to a guy being a great hitter, it's because the pitcher made a mistake. We made a helluvalotta mistakes this weekend...let's hope the coaching staff can get these guys to minimize those throughout the year.

            I just don't get it... every starting pitcher in MLB is pitching lights out, like it's mid July... except our guys!

            The season is over. Lock the thread.

              Not quite yet.

              No team has ever started 0-4 and won the World Series. So when Beckett takes the mound tonight, it will be to save Boston's season.

              If he loses, then we can lock it up.

              Or we could always do what we used to do: start talking about next season. It's only 361 days off!

                Well, it was a great run. Maybe next year.

                    No doubt. There's a first time for everything. Usually.

                    Either way, they have to start winning sometime. And I know -- when I think of a stopper who can end a losing streak before it gets out of hand, I think of Daisuke Matsuzaka.






                    Who knows. We're due for a pleasant surprise. Maybe Matsuzaka is ready to go.

                      These lineups tito is putting out are horrible. You put your best hitter at third. Its not Crawford, and its sure as hell not little Dusty. Gonzalez is the best hitter. And look, put Crawford at 1, Ellsbury isnt exactly lighting it up either at 1.

                      1. Crawford
                      2. Pedroia
                      3. Gonzalez
                      4. Youk
                      5. Ortiz
                      6. Drew
                      7. Salty
                      8. Scutaro
                      9. Ellsbury

                        Tito's too much of a player's manager to do that. Crawford doesn't want to lead off.

                          Although, things might get to a point where Francona might be able to get away with it.

                          This team is absolutely lifeless.

                              More beanballs than strikes. Let's see how long Reyes can keep that stat alive....

                              eta

                              He did it! a 4-pitch walk, and he leaves the game with more HBPs than strikes thrown.
