The pitching staff is really on a skid as of late as well. Did you see Beckett getting HAMMERED the other night? Dude was gone by the 2nd inning. Plus, his ERA is almost 4 1/2! OUCH. Paul Byrd is a shitty 3, with a 7-11 record...oh, and his ERA IS 4.55. Lester & Matsuzaka are the only ones you can count on right now.
A man can hope can't he?

The lose of Manny and the 1-2 combo of Manny/Ortiz reminds me of Nomar Garceieppara and Mo Vaughn. It was the same thing back then but the Red Sox were able to bounce back, it just took some time.
