Riddle me this: 2 and 10.

Let’s play a game! A trivia game! Doesn’t that sound like fun, Theo? A quiz in five parts. Don’t worry, it will take a lot less time than that painful, excruciating attempt at… what exactly were we trying to do tonight?

1. 51 at bats. 7 hits. Who am I?

2. Who am I? Crazy throwing. A pop-up. .138. Oh, and a last name that’s longer than my Sox career will ever be.

3. Who am I? A $30 million dollar contract extension, and I’m still just “okay.” 3 hits. 5 walks. Saved from angry fan hotdog darts when the umps reversed a three-run homer.

4. I decided to let the birds have four runs on four hits. Just ’cause in the 7th. Who am I?

5. A pissed off girl in a Sox scarf that is so fricking tired of telling assholes in Braves hats that it’s “early” and to shove it.

“The boos are growing louder, the tweets harsher (e.g. @montana57 someone needs to be fired after tonight and this start to the season. This is terrible), the patience thinner, the anxiety greater.” ~ESPN

Answers: 1. $142 million dollars, that’s who. Aka: Carl Crawford. 2. Salty. 3. Buchholz. 4. Jenks (Stinks) 5. Lauren

Awesome! Great job, Theo! Five for five! Now that you recognize the problems, let’s see about creating solutions. Temporary fixes. Strategies. Plans. You know, those things Farrell writes down on legal pads in the BJ locker room? I’m sure he has an extra pen in case yours is busy writing checks.

The biggest riddle of all? What the frick is going on?

Dustin Pedroia, you’re swell.

K-Youk, I love you.

Everyone else, thank Fisk for Josh Beckett. Because he’s the only reason I’m not psychicly strangling you right now. And to suck in front of Farrell! In front of company.

What part of DO IT FOR AMERICA did you not understand in my pep talk? Why do you hate our troops, Bobby Jenks?!

Anyone think it was fitting that our newly contracted moolah player grounds out to lose the game?

And, Jed Lowrie fanatics- did you see Scut’s rally? Yeah. Scut had a rally.

Too little, too late.

Sometimes you just feel like screaming. Right, Meatloaf?

Other times you feel like crying.

Yeah. I can listen to Taylor Swift. What? Okay, fine.

So how are you doing, Soxies? Got any good riddles?

So, so, so, so happy to see the Beckster take the mound…

    I love Taylor Swift. Who cares if she can’t really sing. She likes revenge. I like revenge. We are a pair made in revenge.

    I just read something on bostondirtdogs that made me laugh and now I can’t remember what it is. Damn it.

    i enjoyed the yankee loss. i really, really did. because i was at a bar with yankee and braves fans. braves fans are easy to dismiss. i just say “smoltz” and they cower in shame. yankee fans, the real ones, and there are at least two in boone (which is DOUBLE the amount of sox fans… um… fan) are less likely to go away. unless their team is losing.
    and i can’t go anywhere, see, because then it looks like i’m cowering from a 2 and 10. it’s all very complicated here. there are lots of rules. it would be easier if i were in boston and could just go to the actual game.
    it is very late.

    What the hell are the Braves fans running their mouths about? I must have missed what they have done in the last twenty years. They won one world series and then won their division and choked in the playoffs.

    What are they cocky about?

    The Yankees are playing like crap now too. Their fans are freaking out. The only thing saving them is us.

    The funny thing on boston dirt dogs was something like ” more days in last place” mocking the more games in first place comment Theo said. It just made me laugh.

    I think it was actually more days in 30th place but same thing.
