Well it is not every day that you can have TWO teeth grinders in less than 24 hours.

The Red Sox couldn't score a run with the bases loaded and 2 outs in the 11th inning, ergo losing a game on Saturday where the only offense was a Jason Varitek homer on Friday.

And oh yeah, fell a run short in the big comeback today.

The Red Sox are stumbling. And yes I know it is early and a modest 3 game winning streak will get them to .500.

As I said last winter, this is a team without an offensive identity. And it is starting to show big time.

At this point, forget the Big Papi/Mike Lowell platoon.

I'd be willing to go down to Pawtucket and see if Darnell McDonald is for real.
Why not? Anything to give this offense a jolt.

Either way, it's time to update the already cluttered tally.


April 4 - 9-7 win against Yankees (On Opening Night, the Red Sox overcome a 5-1 Yankee lead with a game tying HR by Pedroia and a go ahead passed ball.)
April 10 - 8-3 win against Kansas City (Beckett out pitches Zack Greinke and nearly gets decapitated by a line drive.)
April 14 - 6-3 win in Minnesota. (Okajima gets Morneau to pop up with the bases loaded in the 7th and Papelbon wiggled out of a 9th inning jam.)


April 6 - 6-4 loss against the Yankees. (Scutaro's error leads to the winning run.)
April 7 - 3-1 loss against the Yankees. (Sox leave the winning run on in the 9th only to lose on Granderson's 10th inning homer)
April 9 - 4-3 loss in Kansas City. (Bard coughs up the lead, denying Wakefield a win.)
April 17 - 3-1 loss to Tampa Bay. (The Sox can't score with the bases loaded and nobody out in the 11th... lost it in the 12th.)
April 17 - 6-5 loss to Tampa Bay. (The Red Sox comeback falls a run short, leaving two on in the 8th)

From break even to -2 in less than 24 hours.

Let's hope this is rock bottom
