He can say it was his command. He can say he doesn’t need to watch video. He can say it was just an off-night. But until CC can beat the Red Sox this season and be as dominant against them as he’s been against everybody else, he’s not going to help us when it counts. We have to play Boston again and again before this is all over, and we need our ace to step up. Very unfortunate game tonight.
I had to leave for a dinner date when the score was 7-3, but I didn’t have much of an appetite when I got to the restaurant. Ayala was pitching by then and soon after Noesi gave up his runs, and our offense wasn’t in gear at all.
Well, first place was fun while it lasted.
I don’t know why I found this game so discouraging, but I did. Maybe it’s because the Sunday matchup of Beckett-Garcia doesn’t thrill me. Or maybe it was because we should have done a better job against Lackey. Or maybe it was just hard to watch our best pitcher cave.
I just hope tomorrow night goes better – if the game is even played. It’s pouring here in CT so I’m assuming the rain will make its way up to Boston.
