    That's 3 outstanding offensive displays in a row. While not the main or only problem, I'd sit Bruce tomorrow.
    This place use to be fun

    I agree. Lefty pitching. Jay looks like he's in a fog. Batting below .250.

    yes...

    bosten lost 3 in a row in the ALCS and came back to bet the yankees in 7.

    Browning pitched a perfect game against the Dodgers and they won the world series a month later.

    That creepy bartender on the Fridays commercial. I could do without him.

    Just for some perspective, the 1990 "Wire to Wire" team had an eight game losing streak, two 5 game losing streaks and five 3 game losing streaks. So nearly half of their 71 losses were in those eight losing streaks. Of course, starting the season 9-0 never hurts.

    Even the 1927 Yankees lost four in a row and three in a row in another streak.

    I was at Candlestick Park on a Sunday afternoon in late July 1990 when the Giants completed a four game sweep of the Reds. Scott Garrelts had a 8-2/3 inning no hitter that was broken up by Paul O'Neill (I think.) At the time, I was convinced that the team would eventually fade out of first place.
