Red Sox 4, Royals 6: The bullpen blows it, hard and inexcusably

Red Sox 4, Royals 6: The bullpen blows it, hard and inexcusably

Matt Barnes, Robby Scott and John Farrell each get an L for this disaster. The Red Sox played pretty well until the eighth inning Wednesday before the bullpen blew a 4-2 lead in spectacular fashion as the Sox lost to the Royals, 6-4, in Kansas City. The first inning went by without incident, as did the top of the second. Eric Hosmer led off the top of the second with a hustle double, and when Salvador Perez followed up with a single it looked like things could get hairy; a double-play ball from Mike Moustakas later it was 1-0 Kansas City, but the threat was extinguished, and Cheslor...

Angels go back to old losing ways against Kansas City on Fathers Day

They finally beat KC last night. Today, they lost 7-3. Welp. Angels 3 Royals 7 A win against the Royals on Fathers Day would’ve been a pretty good present to all the Halos dads out there. But wins against the Royals don’t come easy this year...they barely come at all, with last night’s victory seeming like it’s already a mirage we had seen collectively, or a shared dream. Alas, today’s tussle had the two teams sparring back and forth, with big, extra base hits by Kole Calhoun and Mike Moustakes, or some important knocks from Andrelton Simmons and Eric Hosmer. JC Ramirez was doing...

Yonder Alonso leads AL first basemen in All-Star voting

Yonder Alonso leads AL first basemen in All-Star voting

Yonder Alonso leads American League first basemen in All-Star voting. Let that statement sink in for a moment. Here’s let’s try it again, but bolder this time. Yonder Alonso leads American League first basemen in All-Star voting. Seriously. He’s ahead of Miguel Cabrera, and Eric Hosmer, and everybody else. This would have sounded preposterous in February, with Alonso coming off a down year amid a disappointing career. It would have sounded hopelessly optimistic in March, when he was crushing the Cactus League. It would have sounded unlikely in April, despite his hot start. Even in...
