Captain, abandon ship! The SS BoSox is sinking!

Sox winless in Seattle, 4-3.

I really can't take much more of this...another late night, another excruciatingly painful loss...this team is beyond staggering and into reeling, freefall mode.
Even with Manny back the stumbling Sox "offense" could only muster 7 hits and 3 runs against Gil Meche and his Seattle cohorts. One of those hits was a homer by COCO of all people. But it is quite clear now, to everyone but Tito, that MIKE TIMLIN CAN'T PITCH ANYMORE! After the Sox fought to take a 3-2 lead in the top of the 8th on a clutch single by Lowell, Timlin relieved in the bottom half of the inning and promptly gave up a homer to tie it, then two singles and a sac fly to blow the lead, the game, and the win-AGAIN. Just can't take's become 2003 all over again- the grace period for the Championship is over..if Tito, Theo and the rest of the brass don't get their heads out of their asses and figure out something quick, the only thing this team is going to be fighting for these last 33 games is their dignity!
As usual, more gory details in the AM.....
