And are we ready to be jumping off of bridges?
Personally, I don’t think so. Plenty of time left to turn this around. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t things that need to be fixed. Mainly their $100 million #5 starter. And by ‘fixed’ I mean ‘jettisoned’, but I doubt that will happen.
I have to believe this team will hit. I’m not ready to assume career worst years for the entire lineup 11 games into the season. I think last night definitely exposes a weakness, though…the lineup Francona puts out there against tough lefties is pretty terrible.
But honestly, the only thing I think will consistently stink this year is Matsuzaka.
