Thank god for the Blue Jays..... This was the first thought that went through my head as i turned on the T.V. this morning. Finally some relief from the tough schedule the Red Sox have had last couple weeks playing against the likes of the Yankees, Rangers, and Angels. This should be an easy sweep of a team we are an overpowering 9-3 against this season, and ritually dominate every year. And Jon Lester is on the mound? Hell Yeah. Our Indisputable Ace this season, Lester is looking for his 3rd win in a row, and has a nice little 14 inning scoreless streak going.
Piece of Caaake! You can put it in the books! Game over. There is no doubt in my mind we will win this game! But as I flip on the game midway through the 3rd inning last night my confidence quickly turned into disbelief. 9-0 Blue jays in the 3rd Inning? Is this some sort of sick joke NESN is playing on its viewers, or are the Toronto Blue Jays really stomping our dicks in? Well this is a disaster… I’m talking Hurricane Katrina disaster…. I’m talking Gulf oil spill disaster…. I’m talking 2012, get your kids into the bombshelter apocalypse disaster!!
Oh well, its only the 3rd inning, we can still come back right? Ortiz doubles to deep center, here we go boys! Toronto’s pitching is awful, especially with this bum Brett Cecil on the mound. Dude gave up 7 runs last game. Here comes the MVP of the Red Sox this season, Adrian Beltre. Strikes out swinging.. Oh well heres Mike Lowell he’s gotta do something right?
The fact that he popped out to second base did not bother me. The fact that J.D. Drew is up next with two outs wasn’t my concern. I even forgot about the 9 run deposit for a quick minute. What was really troubling was Mike Lowell’s pathetic trot to first base. Have you seen this guy run? Watching that slow jog was extremely painful for me. If I wanted to watch shit like this I would go to one of my grandpa’s softball league games. I feel like I have just been kicked in the balls by Jet Li multiple times. I know your old and injured, but come on bro, I could walk to first base faster than that.
J.D. strikes out swinging. Sweet.
Ladies and Gentleman your 2010 Boston Red Sox!!! (Fart Sound)
The rest of the game didn’t get much better. 9 runs quickly turned into 11, then 14, and by the 8th inning it was 16-2! With each run the Toronto Blue Jays put up I could see our season sliding further and further down the toilet. This is the life of a Red Sox fan. Just when you think there out of it, they coming storming back into the playoff race and make things exciting again. Then as soon as it looks like there about to make a move in the division they get trampled by the freakin Blue Jays….
How about them Patriots?
