Right now the Boston Red Sox look like the team that started the season 0-6, after consecutive sweeps by Texas and Cleveland. They pretty-much SUCK!
But it's better to get the bad funk out of their collective systems now - rather than when the playoffs roll around.
The Red Sox had better snap out of it quickly because the Tampa Bay Rays are only 5 1/2 games back, after beating Boston, Friday night, 7-2.
Kevin Youkilis was MIA. Youk has bursitis and received a cortisone shot in his gimpy hip. He was forced to return to Boston to have the hip examined by team doctors and undergo an MRI exam.
The Red Sox have 3 starters in triage with the playoffs a few weeks away...John Lackey left last night's game after taking a liner off his left leg. He has a bruised calf.
Clay Buchholz has a lower-back strain and Josh Beckett has a sprained right ankle.
The Red Sox need to get their S**T together...
The Oakland A's started-off, last night, on a high. Brandon McCarthy was pitching well and Josh Willingham cranked a 2-run homer. After that, it was all downhill.
The A's committed 3 errors - providing the Rangers with 5 unearned runs to contribute to a 13-4 Texas victory.
Oakland leads the American League with 115 errors!
