Red Sox Chick/Toeing the Rubber

Because you always need a backup plan

It feels like we're swimming upstream

I found a silver lining to all this losing.  (I always do, eventually!)

Just think.  If this keeps up…if the Sox become the first team to go 4-158, all the fans who stick it out will be able to buy field box seats at really good prices!  Heck, a Sox losing season could put scalpers out of business!  Ace Ticket wouldn’t be able to afford to pay Jerry Remy to shill for them!  If you look hard enough, there’s an upside to everything!

But the Sox aren’t going to go 4-158 (please, Jesus, please) this season.  The tide is already turning with the announcement of Mike Cameron going on the dl with an abdominal tear and Josh Reddick being called up.  (Now, I’m not saying Reddick is the cure for everything wrong with the Red Sox right now, but anything that puts Bill Hall back on the bench to collect himself and wait for a chance to pinch-hit or sub in the INFIELD late in a game is step in the right direction.)  Poor Bill Hall.  I hope he ends up hitting a walk-off for us this year!  I wonder if they sell a “Hall” t-shirt at the Yawkey Way Store?

The plan for the live blog/chat (so far) is that I’m going to do one for the Wednesday game this week but, most likely, I’ll be doing it for the Tuesday games this year (we’ll see how that goes).  To get it started, though, I wanted to do it sooner than later.  So tomorrow night, when Beckett takes all of our hopes and dreams to the mound with him, I’ll be here with the live chat for those who would like to join (or lurk, but joining in is more fun!).

Back at Fenway tonight to see Wake take the mound still looking for his first win of the season.  Tonight is as good a night as any to start that winning streak!
