He came up with a man at 1st, no out in the 9th in a tied game and fouled out on a bunt attempt. He then went to the dugout and threw a tantrum.

What a disaster the end of this game is. Absolute implosion. And not just the pitching... Horrible base running and a pop up bunt? These guys should be ashamed.

It's all lessons learned for a 2014 run. They'll trade replaceable assets for some nice pieces for next year and catch everyone by surprise. They've underachieved this year (to say the least), but they were assembled to contend for the next couple years and they will. Check the stats, they're not that far away. With some decent starting pitching they'd undoubtably be in the hunt today

just curious, but what about that is the joke part?

Honestly, the biggest joke and really the only joke has been this past offseason. All the trades have been failures. simple as that. All the pitchers that we picked up have been shite.

their flip flopping is a joke. In a two week span they had him play 2nd base in the minors and told he'd be playing 2nd. Then when he came up we were told he'd play both 2nd/3rd positions the rest of the season. Now, he's done playing second for the rest of the season and will go back to 3rd base full time. IMO that whole situation was mishandled.

really? I don't see it that way. He was always better suited to play third. It's the position he's best at, but because of the way certain players have performed and injuries and all that the opportunity there became a greater need at 2nd base. So why not try him there given that he's done it in the past? Players need to accomodate the team's need in certain situations. Well after a while they decided it wasn't working out. And the joke part is _____??? Actually this whole issue seems pretty reasonable.

I get that fans are frustrated. I am too. Heck, i haven't watched a game since well before the allstar break, but stop directing your criticisms in the wrong direction.

One dude who gets a pass from me is Gibbons. what has he done wrong? What do you expect a baseball manager to do? Manage the pen and which position player plays where. Well guess what? The starting pitching has been the worst ever and the pen was actually really really good for a while until they got burned out because of the starters continuing to suck massive donkey balls. and there's also been some pretty unlucky and significant injuries to big name players.

Yep. Reyes has been decent though despite the injury.

David Ortiz Blows Up Gets Mad At Call Made By Umpire vs Orioles 7/27/13 Tossed - YouTube

Now technically speaking in my most utmost non-bias to Red Sox nation opinion, if you stand straight up in the batter's box, doesn't this increase the height of the strike zone?
