GAME THREAD 7-10-2005 SOX vs A's

Recommended Posts

Man Juggernaut...I don't think I agree with you on anything.

 

THE BIGGEST GAME OF THE 1ST HALF???

 

I don't really buy that one at all. Not after we've played big games against the Twins, the Angels, the Orioles...I can point to a bundle of them. The game against the Tigers after the Oakland trip where we were all beat up and El Duque came in and shut down the Tigers starting a big winning streak, the road trip to Minnesota, the destroying of Wickman in the 2nd game of the year, the comeback against the Dodgers, the comeback against the Padres, you name it.

 

A 3 game losing streak into the break is not the end of the world. It's something I don't want to see, but it's not the end of the world.

Well, Dye gets an extra day to rest around the break. Hopefully that'll help him next week.

It's 5 minutes before game time, there are maybe 2,000 people at the park. What is it about Sundays that people can't get to the park on time?

When is Ozzie going to f***ing learn that Ozuna can't play 3rd base? Put his ass at SS, and move Uribe to 3B. It's inexcusable to put him at 3b for another game. And just like that, Garcia gives up his customary first inning run.

Wake the f*** up Garcia. This was not the game to pitch like a pussy in the first inning.

Someone needs to have a talk with Freddy about how he warms up for games. Add in a few extra tosses or somethin.

Putting your team in the position to get blown out in the first inning is not promising.

Ozuna is completely worthless.

 

He should be sent down before anybody else.

 

I've seen enough of this butcher.

Oh thank you Jesus/Allah/Buddha/Freddy/whoever gave us that pitch.

Well, we avoided the potential big inning. I'm shocked that a former infielder like Ozzie hasn't realized yet how much Ozuna sucks at 3rd base.

Fathom, how many times have you watched Freddy pitch this year??? He always has problems in the first inning, always. He usually gets out of it with 1 or 2 runs allowed then he becomes almost impossible to hit, hopefully it'll be the same today.

Nah, he just can't play 3rd. He can hit and play a solid short and 2nd base. He's better then Willie.

Tadahito just scalded that ball. Anyone else agree that he's our best hitter against real good pitching?

Exactly, and Garcia has avoided giving up that one big hit early in the game which would have basically put the Sox in a huge hole. He's playing with fire starting the game without focus, and there's going to be some games where the Sox are down 4 or 5 after the first inning.

What happened on the Kendall hit in the first inning, I did not see it? i notice Ozuna was not charged with an error.
