07:09 AM ET 04.24 | It's becoming harder to accept Alfredo being Alfredo. Until now, the Sox have decided that the positives -- his durability, his versatility -- have outweighed the negatives. But Tuesday night may represent a tipping point of sorts. It was bad enough that Aceves allowed eight runs on seven hits in 3 2/3 innings. ... It was made worse by Aceves' actions in the third when he balked twice in the span of a few hitters, then failed to cover first base in time on a ground ball to the right side. And when Aceves offered a litany of excuses for his outing -- blaming the conditions and a shrinking strike zone -- and followed that by asking rhetorically of his teammates, "Why didn't we hit?" he may have crossed a line.

"Why didn't we hit ?"

No he di'nt.

I never understood why they didn't dump his **** during the off season.

He is an insignificant piece. There is no real reason to keep him around and ruin the team chemistry that the front office has worked so hard to rebuild.

All the hitting in the world can't make up for 8 runs by the 4th inning... what a f-king scumbag. Hit the bricks!

Dump the bum.............

It was very painful to watch last night.

Colon threw 94 pitches in 7 innings last night and faced 25 batters.

Red Sox pitching threw 162 pitches in 7 innings and faced 42 batters.

What is wrong with this picture?

Don't remind me. Must be some 'wonder' drug he is taking.

A player or pitcher who does not accept responsibility for his performance or the lack of it,instead finds excuses why it was someone elses fault. Those players are not needed on your team. All he will do will alienate himself from the team and better off releasing him if you can't trade him. Most teams hear about his short comings and avoid those players .

C'mon... give the guy a chance. He just needs to be nurtured and understood. He will be a key piece, if not the linch pin, of the Red Sox' pitching staffs for years to come (Puts thin sticks and leaves over deep hole.)

he can't be. He just came off a suspension. If he is then he is just dumber than dumb or that rock I just threw.

Please release him. He is a POS. I am a die hard fan of the Sox and it is hard to watch him pitch. His actions on and off the field annoy me. I do not know if he is a good guy, but he stinks as a pitcher. He is way too inconsistent. Give some younger guys a chance or make a trade. A number 5 starter on another team can't be any worse.
PLEASE RELEASE HIM

Glad to see you lose the "wiseup:" schtick. I'm much more likely to read what you have to say now ... not that it matters to you. :)
