Box Score Bytes - Game 100

- Game 35 of the Great Tracy Experiment: Record 12-23.  Sanchez's new uniform doesn't appear to make much difference.  Faced 22 batters didn't get out the fifth and got the loss.  Starter's record is now 5-18 with 12 no decisions and bullpen record of 7-5. 

-  Game 100 and Rox are now 37-63. On pace for 102 losses.  After yesterday somebody has to make some hard decisions.  In the bottom of the 5th, Rox reliever Torres strikes out for what was the third out in the inning but at this point all 9 players on the field were completely unaware of that fact.  Rox catcher threw it to the third baseman and only after the umpire related to the clueless Rox that was in fact the last out did the Rox leave the field.  Really?  Rox are not only bad but they have become an embarrassment.  Someone's head should roll for that.  Tracy obviously has lost the clubhouse, the team obviously doesn't care, and basically they are thinking that October 4th can't get here soon enough.  I am getting close to be done with team.  If they can't respect the game and at least try then I'm not bothering to waste my time going to see them...

- Rox lose the season series to the Reds 5-1.  Rox get swept at home again.  Truly amazing how quickly this team has just gotten bad.  Hate to break it to management but in the last 162 games, dating back to around the Ubaldo trade, Rox are 62-100.  For a team of young stars, this baptism by fire had better work otherwise it won't be just a bad 2012 but a bad 2013 too.

- On a positive note, CarGo has hit safely at home for 28 games, two game shy of Walker's 30 game record!
