    Too Painful to Watch - Red Sox Lose to Blue Jays 11-0

    Well, the thought was nice. A beautiful summer afternoon. A beer in one hand, the remote in another and the Boston Red Sox on my television. Too bad the Red Sox couldn't help me out a bit with, I don't know, ONE RUN!!! It wasn't to be as Jon Lester had one of his worst performances of the season and the Red Sox got blanked by the Blue Jays 11-0.Jon Lester only lasted 2 1/3 innings and in that short span of time gave up 8 hits and 7 runs before being yanked. That's just about the story of today's game, but there was more.

    The game started out on a bright note as it looked like the Red Sox were going to explode offensively again. Jacoby Ellsbury and Dustin Pedroia both got on in the 1st with no outs. Then David Ortiz, Kevin Youklis and Jason Bay fizzled and that was the story of the game.

    The first inning was all there was to speak of in terms of Red Sox offense for the afternoon, as they were only able to muster four hits, leaving a bad taste in the mouth of Red Sox Nation International.

    So now the deficit in the AL East is 5.5 and it's looking less and less likely that the Red Sox will catch the Rays, regardless of what Big Papi says, it is unlikely it will happen. There's always the wild card right? Well, if you can call a 1/2 game lead a lead, otherwise, that's a dead heat.
