Last Place

June 13, 2012

When the Red Sox began interleague play with their series against the Nationals, they were above .500 and only 3 games out of first.  Then, they got swept.  To make matters worse, the Yankees swept the Mets.  The Mets were only a game back of the Nats, when interleague began, and today they’re 5 out, and we’re 6.5 behind Tampa and the Yankees.  It’s amazing to see how 6 games can have such an impact on two divisions, in two different leagues.

What’s even more astonishing, and certainly more terrifying, is that we are only four weeks away from the All Star Game, and, while the Yankees and the Rays have each found their way back to the top of the division, the Red Sox are still at the bottom.  Last place.  At this time last year, even with the horrendous start, we were in first place.  This year, we can’t seem to get in a groove.   The team is frustrated, but instead of airing that frustration out on the baseball, they’re arguing balls and strikes.  Whining is going to get us nowhere.   If we keep going like this, we might not have to worry about another collapse.  We may be too far down in the standings to fall.
