The excellent news for present members of the Boston Crimson Sox is that the baseball focus of town on Sunday was on Cooperstown, N.Y., the place David Ortiz was a part of the category of 2022 for the Corridor of Fame.
The Crimson Sox legend’s Corridor name got here within the midst of yet one more embarrassing outing by the staff in an 8-4 loss in opposition to the Toronto Blue Jays.
Whereas the Boston baseball media was cut up between Fenway Park and Cooperstown on Sunday, these watching the 2022 Crimson Sox fall to .500 had some pointed criticism.
Steve Hewitt, Crimson Sox beat author for the Boston Herald, known as Sunday’s efficiency “borderline unwatchable at occasions.”
“The one consistency it appears the Crimson Sox have proven all through the month of July is dangerous defence,” Hewitt added in his sport story, specializing in a sequence of fielding blunders.
The loss capped a sequence wherein Boston was outscored 40-10, together with the 28-5 debacle within the opener.
The Crimson Sox at the moment are 4-13 of their previous 17 video games, all in opposition to AL East playoff contenders — the Blue Jays, New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays.
This is a sampling of response from the Boston media on Twitter on Sunday.
