Without A Curse Ep#641:Red Sox Continue To Feel Jacoby Ellsbury’s Absence In Centerfield


The Red Sox failed to reach the .500 mark yet again last week, as the club dropped its series finale to the A’s Sunday afternoon.

Alex talks about the team’s poor situational play, and its continued struggles with runners in scoring position.

The Red Sox left over 20 men on base in its doubleheader against the Rays Thursday. Manager John Farrell may have wanted to play the two games Thursday to take advantage of the Rays’ depleted pitching staff, but his team couldn’t push runs across the plate.

Jackie Bradley Jr. was responsible for stranding a plethora of base runners Sunday. Though he’s played well defensively, his offensive performance has been subpar

The Red Sox probably signed Grady Sizemore because Ben Cherington forecasted that Bradley would scuffle offensively. The problem is, Sizemore hasn’t performed at the plate either.

Clay Buchholz and Jon Lester pitched exceptionally well in the team’s victories Friday and Saturday against the A’s, and were aided by a couple of key home runs. Dustin Pedroia and Jonny Gomes both hit grand slams in the two contests.

Though the Red Sox have failed to win more than two consecutive games this season, the team is only two games out of first place in the mediocre AL East. That’s the saving grace.

In the “Around the League” segment, Alex takes a closer look at the other teams in the division, and reprimands hypocritical Yankees fans who booed Robinson Cano for “selling out” last week.

Alex also talks about the Wall Street Journal’s story about 30 front office Red Sox staffers who are studying the reasons behind the increasing length of Major League Baseball games.

The problem isn’t that the games are long, necessarily. It’s that they’re slow.

Brave The Wild Ep#87:Double Deja Vu

NHL

It’s like we’re seeing double in multiple ways, with the Minnesota Wild, past and present. The Wild’s amazing games 6 and 7 in Colorado, harkened back to the old days. Frustrating losses in the first two games in Chicago have been all too familiar as well.

Without A Curse Ep#640:Clay Buchholz’s And Felix Doubront’s Inconsistency Is Maddening


Inside this edition of “Without a Curse,” Alex recaps a rather disappointing week for the Red Sox.

The club dropped two out of three games to the Yankees last week, as Jacoby Ellsbury led the way with a multitude of extra-base hits and stellar defensive plays.

It’s obvious that the Red Sox were going to miss Ellsbury this year. But the team likely won’t miss Ellsbury in the latter years of his seven-year, $153 million contract, which is why Ben Cherington didn’t overextend himself for his services last winter.

The Red Sox starting pitching and defense has largely been abominable over the last week, which is worrisome. It’s almost as if Clay Buchholz and Felix Doubront have served as walking advertisements as to why it’s imperative for the Red Sox to retain Jon Lester past this season.

Xander Bogaerts’ struggles defensively at shortstop shouldn’t come as a surprise, because many scouts believed that was the weak point in his game.

Still, Bogaerts’ misplays at shortstop illustrate that the Red Sox would’ve been better off signing Stephen Drew to play the position this year. There would’ve been more than enough at-bats to go around for Bogaerts, Drew and Middlebrooks.

Speaking of Middlebrooks, he and Shane Victorino returned to the lineup late last week. At the least, the two players should add some stability to the batting order.

The top of the Red Sox lineup has been atrocious this season, as the team’s lead-off hitters have gone 20-105. Victorino should help rectify that, and immediately improve the outfield defense.

Alex also recaps the series in Toronto over the weekend, and highlights the poor run support Lester has received thus far.

In the “Around the League” segment, Alex provides a closer look at the competitive AL East. No team has run away with the division in April, as injuries have seemingly affected every club.

Albert Pujols hit his 500th home run last week, and though it didn’t receive a lot of media coverage, the Angels have to be pleased that he is healthy and producing this season. There may be hope for that 10-year, $240 million contract after all.

Alex was troubled by Royals manager Ned Yost’s comments over the weekend about how he thinks relievers should be used. Apparently, he only wants to use closer Greg Holland in tie-games on the road that “matter.” Okay, then.
