Too Little, Too Late

Joe Crede had his first 2 HR game of the season. The second of which came in the bottom of the ninth, with two men on and the Sox trailing by 2 runs, making it of the walk-off variety. It was the first time Joe has put together back-to-back multi-hit nights since July 21st and 22nd, when the Sox were just a half game back and undefeated in the first 2 games of a 22 game stretch against the AL Central.

That was ages ago.

I made a post on Soxtalk to night where I stated that no player contributed to the demise of the Sox more than Joe Crede. Maybe that's a little harsh, but he's been the worst everyday third baseman in the AL this year. Before tonight, he was only better than Eric Hinske after the ASB.

Maybe there was like some really bad radioactive dirt on the left side of our infield, because the same thing can be said of Jose Valentin too. He has been the worst offensive shortstop in the AL since the break.

Aw hell, some of it must have spread across to the second base side of the bag too. Guess who's been the worst offensive 2B in the second half.

Maybe Joe Borchard makes sand castles in the radioactive dirt, cuz he's been afflicted too.

Seriously, how pitiful is that? The Sox have 4 position players with at least 150 PA's since the ASB who have been the worst at their respective positions at the simplest measure of offensive prowess.

I'm going to take a break from bashing Timo Perez after realizing that one.

Just noticin'
I just happened to notice this tonight. Jon Garland was among the league leaders last season(12-13) in run support(6.06). This season(10-11) he's middle of the pack in run support(5.02), which I would think is even more telling when you realize what a bandbox USCF has been this year. To tell you the truth I don't know what it means really. I'm sure there would be far less criticism of him if he had gotten Mark Buehrle type support(6.62) this season. He would likely be at least a couple games over .500.

Blast from the past
Guess who's back. I don't know how I missed him. I'm going to go see if he's available in my fantasy leagues. I should pick him up so that I can hold onto him for next season in my keeper league. He's pitched in three games, and already has 2 losses. Damn relief appearance keeping him from batting 1.000.
