Missed Opportunities

You need to score runs when you have a runner on third and less than two outs.

I know I harp on this a lot but it cost the Sox a game again last night. Two times the Sox had the situation come up and both times the runner was stranded. Once Podsednik actually got a base hit and we still did not score. Alexei and Getz were the main culprits (they didn't get the runners in) but also AJ is to blame for not scoring on the ball that bounced over the pitchers head (maybe Cox too if he told him to hold).

This needs to stop being an issue. Good teams get those runs in. Whether the score is 0-0 or 9-1 those runs will be important in these games. Had we had either of those runs last night we win the game. The bats sure did wake up, but they need to become more consistant in that specific situation.
