    Not sure I'd call it a must win situation yet, Andrew, but for confidence sake, it's surely important to break out of this road slump.  Anderson's breaking ball was unhittable yesterday.  He could have shut down anyone.  Hopefully the lumber returns today.

    It's getting more and more too early as time goes by.

    Sounds like a yogism.

    [QUOTE]Hey Bill - for the record...just last year the Sox were starting 5-9 and getting swept at Fenway by the Tampa Bay Rays... It IS too early to worry about these guys not having a successful season right now! Here's hoping Dice-K shows up to pitch to win today and not just throw batting practice.
    Posted by Soxdog67[/QUOTE]

    Yup, started 5-9.

    By the mid-way point, we looked so good, the discussion was about who the #2 team was, not who was #1.

    8 DLs in about 10 days doomed us.

    Not sure why it needs to repeated several times a year, but you're never as good as you look when you're winning, and never as bad as you look when you're losing.  We just need consistently good outings from our SPs.

    Truly wise words... However...

    Lester's pitching is now truer than it was earlier in the season. As I said a couple of weeks ago he'll be good for 20-20+ wins.

    Becket is pitching like he did in 2007 (and I am not talking just because he is winning...It's the velocity, movement and command that is back).TI have not seen that kind of ball from him since 2007. That would really be dangerous if that kind of pitching keeps showing up, say maybe in 12-15 outings. I may have tor aise my expectation of him to 18 wins.

    Buc, I expect him to regress to the mean but the good Buch this year is closer to the real Buch than the Bad Buch. I am sticking with roughly 18 wins for him.

    Lackey...I am hopeful, but setting my expectation low at 12 wins.

    Dice-K will contribute. It will be ugly each time, but he might match Lackey's production.

    Ultimately, the real RS is closer to the current RS, thanthe RS froma  couple of weeks ago.

    Always nice to see sensible fans.  Way too many posters looked at one or two bad starts and thought the SPs career was over.

    Does the same apply to posters who continue to be wrong?  Attitudinally as well as factually? 

    I now we can't charge you a fine.  But how about the maximum "vacation" from posting?
