Monday pythagorean, 9/24/2012

The 2012 Red Sox feel like a series that the network has cancelled, but they're burning off the remaining episodes during low ratings periods...
  • Hey, look at that - they overperformed their Pythagorean this week! Yeah, they should have gone 2-5, but went 3-4 instead.
  • Woo-hoo.
  • How closely have I followed the team for the last month? Let me answer this way. I watched a little bit of the game yesterday afternoon, and my son said, "who is Danny Valencia?" To which I responded, "I have no idea - never heard of him."
  • Seriously, in many circumstances, a game like Thursday's, in which they gave up six ninth-inning runs to lose a walk-off to the Rays, 7-4, would be a devastating defeat. In these circumstances, it carries the emotional heft of a mid-March split squad game against the Pirates.
  • The 2012 Red Sox feel like a replacement NFL officiating crew...
  • Red Sox Player of the Week - Go ahead. Try to make a case for someone. I dare you.
  • Red Sox Pitcher of the Week - Another outstanding start from Clay Buchholz gave them their third win in four games in Tampa. Until the bullpen gave it back...
