Well, Tim Wakefield sucked again tonight, no surprise there. This has been such a streaky team this season. When things go good, they go real good and when things go bad they go real bad. It seems we are either on a winning streak or a losing streak, very frustrating.
In the second inning manager Terry Francona went absolutely ballistic when Wakefield was called for a balk after picking off a runner that would have ended the inning. In some instances, this would light a fire under a team but it had the exact opposite effect, the Sox got blown out of the water. In the process of losing his mind, Francona bumped into crew chief Joe West so it is likely he will be suspended for a couple games, even though it seemed as though West initiated the contact. This is not what this team needs right now. They need their manager to guide them out of this losing streak.
If I can find a quality video of Francona tweaking I will post it because if you missed it, it was must see TV. I have never seen him so angry. With his history of bad health I was half expecting him to drop dead of a heart attack right there on the field.
So here’s to hoping Tito is not suspended and the Sox can get back on track tomorrow.
