Iglesias' first MLB run (Townson/ AP)
It’s the eleventh inning, and Joe West is still a jackass.
Ok, so that has little to do with anything, but this guy needs to go. He’s a blight on the game. In the recent Twins-Sox series, both Ron Gardenhire and Terry Francona were ejected. I know we all like to complain about the ump, but Joe West is a joke. And a lousy official to boot.
Back to the point. Carl Crawford is hitting .361 in May and had his second walkoff hit of the year on Monday. He scored Jose Iglesias from first- it was the 21 year old’s first major league run. This is big news.
You should read about it in this entertaining article.

So the Red Sox have a phenomenal talent in Carl Crawford. We all get that. Slow start or no, this guy is a stud. He’s got speed, swings a solid bat, and is a major defensive upgrade (remember Manny in left? Please.)
But the fact is, Boston doesn’t have a natural place for him in the batting order. Where can the team hit this guy that makes sense? Take a look at this post and see if you agree…

Red Sox 2011
It is my sad duty to inform you that the Boston Red Sox have not yet turned things around. The hot streak of a couple opf weeks ago gave way to four more losses in six games last week. The lineup that was supposed to be so prolific has not yet gotten in gear. Take a look at my thoughts on this awful April.

Lester saved the series from being a total disaster (Carr/ Getty)
So the Red Sox salvaged the series at Camden Yards, but one win is hardly what I had in mind. Here’s the evaluation of the recent series.
I’m surprised that we’re still waiting on this offense. Getting back to .500 for the month of April will probably help to wipe away memories of the ugly start, but really…a .500 April? From this team?
At least Ellsbury is hitting the ball on the screws. I’m not sure why he’s my favorite player in baseball, but I’m ready for him to get back to leadoff success.
Dice-K today makes me nervous, and we get King Felix on Sunday…I’m still calling for a sweep. It has to be.
