Call me a masochist, but I just went hunting for more comment on last night's piss-poor Sox game. That's how I came across southsidesox.com, whose analysis of the Sox' 8-3 loss to the Tigers struck me as a lot more astute than anything I've read in the dailies lately (have to differ with him on third base coach Jeff Cox's boner, though, and I think Alexei Ramirez has had a big upside this year). The site's motto "Watching the Treadmill to Nowhere" perfectly captures the excruciating experience of watching Vazquez, who has lost five out of his last six and has a 5.88 ERA over his last eight starts despite ranking among the major league's top ten in strikeouts (with 142, he's number ten). Big whoop.
