[QUOTE]In Response to 1 for 13 with RUNNERS IN SCORING POSITION : RISP has haunted the Sox since I was a little kid. Even with all the good hitting we've had - and runs scored - this is a bugaboo that has remained. If we could get in just 10% more of those LOB in scoring position, at the right times, we'd be so totally scary it would be outlandish. Fun to think about. Papi. It's called baseball. Streaks, droughts, ebb and flow as one of our friends here likes to say, ebb and flow. Not to mention the fact that he's been taken out of his regular routine for 2 weeks now ... that can't be helpful. Still glad you're enjoying the season, though. Much more fun to come!

i agree. scary.
but he yanks are putting up even more than we are.
so an increase might help at the right time before and hopefully during the playoffs.
yes ups and downs and yes hes been out of regular lineup, but 2nd worst slump of his career. why. hope they fix it.
very enjoyable season
if crawford comes back and hits and everyone is hittin, with riddick in right, miller in the 5 man, and navarro at short, we might be a lil dangerous.
still middle relief needs help to go into the playoffs. they shouldve not been cheap and offered the 3rd year to nail down the lefty stud.
