We are 40 games into a 162 game season, a quarter of the way home.  A 20-20 record sure would have a nice ring to it, if not for the bullpen gagging Monday night, throwing away a 6-0 lead, and losing 8-7.  There are plenty of fingers to point.  Mike Gonzales, get somebody out! Mark Reynolds, this is the big leagues, you can’t butcher a ground ball like that.  3 unearned runs after that.  Offense, when you get 7 walks in the first 4 innings, you need to score a few more times than you did.  But to me, it comes down to Kevin Gregg.  You’re the closer.  You come into a 7-6 game.  Whatever happened before is irrelevant.  You get a one run lead, and you walk two straight guys. One of those guys, Pedroia, you had 0-2.  And then you gave up the game winner.   You’re the closer. Get 3 outs before you give up 1 run. Simple, at least it should be. If they hit you, fine.  But 2 walks, and both score. Game over. Unacceptable!
