Another great start from the Red Sox rotation, another loss. This time Takashi Saito wears the goat horns. Despite helpful members in the Red Sox dugout encouraging Saito with “Throw it over the white thing!” he was unable to find the plate. After walking three of the first four batters in the ninth, Saito gave up an infield single to put the Mariners ahead. The Sox went went down in the ninth faster than Judy Burkinshaw on prom night: game over.
After the 11-10 disaster and yesterday’s bullpen stumble, is anybody starting to wonder if it’s time for some new blood in the bullpen? Discuss. It’s time to start drinking heavily.
