It's pretty much: "Steven Wright, and wait a fortnight" these days. Yet another Red Sox starter bit the dust last night in a really bad 8-4 loss to the surprisingly good Mariners. Roenis Elias—AKA, "Toto, we're not in AAA anymore"—was awful, giving up seven earned runs in just four innings. David Ortiz did tie Ted Williams at 521 on the all-time HR list, but other than that, you might as well have stayed home and watched 'Dog With A Blog' (much more exciting).
