    Easier said than done. Since Sox will be facing Lee and Hamels on the opposite ends of the series. The Phillies do have the best pitching staff in baseball, although not a great hitting team. I would be happy with winning 2 out of 3.

    Tall order indeed. Probably won't happen. I would be thrilled with 2, and then 3 at Houston. 6-3 road trip then, which would be wonderful considering how it started.

    Anytime you can take 2 out of 3 in any Road Series you should be happy.....2 out of 3 against one of the best teams in baseball at their park would be outstanding. I guarantee you that the Sox would have signed up for 6-3 if not even 5-4 on these 9 games, considering the DH issue....so 2 out of 3 in Philly....and then at least 2 out of 3 in Houston and you go home a little better and hopefully a lot healthier(Crawford, Buchholz, Jenks) than you were when you left.

    Bill-806 is, as always, clear but not very smart.  He appears to think that,  because the Sox lost 2 of 3 to the Padres then 2 of 3 to the Pirates, taking 3 of 3 from the Phillies is a piece of cake.  Wrong. 

    I predicted losing 2 of 3 to the Pirates because they have good pitching and the Sox hitting is not that strong on this road trip with Ortiz not DH'ing, Crawford out, etc.  I'm very worried about the Phillies series because they have both the best pitching and the best record in MLB.

    We're dead (in terms of this particular series) - thats my prediction.

    I predicted (The Danger) the Sox would lose all three in Philly, but I sure hope I'm wrong.  Once again Francona is going to be tempted to shift AGon to RF and Ortiz to 1B.

    I agree that they have the best pitching in baseball , but I am optomistic we can take 2 of 3 based on a few things....one, we luckily miss Doc this series....two, we have been relatrively successful against Cliff lee in the past....three, the Phillies are hitting .246 as a team and other than Ryan Howard do not hit with a lot of Power and all 16 of his hrs have come vs Righties this year, so hopefully Lester keeps that up.

    Setting the bar awfully high there, taking three from the best team in baseball. Wouldn't expect that in my wildest dreams. Two of three would be beautiful. I could live with one of three.

    Tough to take even one unless Beckett is fully recovered from the flu.   Keep your fingers crossed.

    This club has played well against the heavy hitters.  They are 20-13 against clubs with 40 or more wins.  Line-up sans Papi is an issue of course against pitching of Phillie's calibre.  But, my feeling is that the Pirates series actually has some good take away.  Playing a club like that, with great young guys playing with serious attitude, on the road, is good for the mojo.  A reminder of how you gotta do your business before you have to go toe to toe with a true juggernaut.

    Agreed, Space. This seems to be one of those teams that plays up to or down to its competition. Which could serve us well in the postseason ... assuming we get there!

    no doubt lloyd, but lets not make azzes of ourselves by azzuming.  I, personally, am not thinking, saying or writing anything about the P word until August.  Long road ahead with many twists and turns ... that being said, would be good to stick it to Everyones-NL-WS-Pick Phillies huh?

    Phillys have decided to push Kendricks back to Friday and pitch Hamels Thursday against Lester. Hamels will be on normal rest

    against Hamels and Lee I'd be very happy with 2 out of 3.

    The Sox just need to play well.  They have historically been able to take 2-3 in Philly but this is a new season.  I have been to many of the games at "The Bank" and it is always fun.  We tailgate in the parking lot with thousands of Sox fans and enjoy hoagies from Wawa!  That's right, Wawa!

    No they don't.  It would be nice if they took 3, but I'd be happy with taking 2 of 3.

    And at this point in the season, they don't have to do anything.  They could get swept and win the division.

    "Need" to sweep?  Of course they don't, there are about 85 games left.  What are you smoking, Bill?

    This is June not September, in reality they do not "need" to take any in Phila.  Be satisfied if they take one game.  Phila is an excellent team and no push-over.  In the long run Phila is certainly as good as the RS and perhaps better...  Months over time will tell.

    Jim I will be there Wednesday night. I work 6-3 that day so I will be there early at McFadden's at the Ball Park. I tried to get you two tickets from my co-workers neighbor. He or she was offering 34.00 tickets for 100.00 a piece. No thanks. You'll do better on stub-hub. Let me know if you're going Wednesday. Between 6 and 6:30, I will be standing at the Mike Schmidt statue with my Ted Williams 1951 jersey and my Crawford red shirt and blue hat. Stop by please or anyone else Wed. I will be sitting in section 113 row 24 seat 5(It's my friend's partial season ticket plan) I may go Tuesday but I may have to sneak out of work early. So if you're going Tuesday I might be there. Oh well I hope some of you stop by at the statue so I can meet some of you. Thursday afternoon I can't go. Go Sox!
