    3-1 against the Indians and 3-1 against the Phillies

    If we do that we probably head into the Yankees series in first place. I really like how the pitching lines up over the next 8 days.

    Possible.

    But, the Yankees are playing the Rays and Mets.

    The Rays have been playing better, but he Mets always seem to roll over for the Yankees.

    Hopefully the Rays pitching steps up and the Mets can take one from NYY.

    I like our chances against both Cleveland and Phillies. Neither will be a pushover with the Tribe exceeding all expectations so far this year. Load up on LHH against Masterson.

    6-2 is definitely possible.

    While you are pipe dreaming, why not just go for 8-0.

     



    I am not sure you understand what a pipe dream. What do expect in the next 8 games?

    I don't think you'll beat Nasty Masty tonight.  He is one of the best pitchers in baseball this year (7-2) and has been getting leftys out, too.  I think there will be a 2-2 split in the series....

    Probability is 5-3, which is quite good. This team is going to have a lot of problems at home.



    So 6-2 is a pipe dream but 5-3 is realistic. I think I was right questioning how you define a pipe dream.

    Maybe 5-3 or 4-4. Considering that two of the five pitchers (Dempster and Doubront) have been fairly bad recently, and secondly, outside of Pedroia and Ortiz, no one is hitting.

    Since we only use short samples. Doubrant is fine now, right? One bad start, one horrible relief appearance and one decent start. So that means he is decent by some people on this boards standards.

    Sounds about right with some. Bad game=bad pitcher good game=good pitcher and so on and so on.

    Well, if we can split this series, its still a positive. Ill take 5-3. 6-2 WAS ambitious, but very possible. I think if we didnt have to play to the dumb NL rules and play our normal team, we might of had a better chance. NL needs to adopt the DH very soon. Ih well, it is what it is... Im still liking what Lackey is giving us. Hes giving us QS and keeping us in the game.

    Bubble playoff team with 2 CF'ers who can't slug v. LP, a career bench bum in Carp, and career bench bum in Gomes, and a career bench profile in Nava who needs to platoon v. RP. That's not going to get it done, and the playoff bubble will either pop or the team will be lucky to win a playoff game and go out in the first round of the playoffs.    



    So in Softy's opinion this team has been mismanaged into a team that has a fair chance to make the playoffs.  

    That's not entirely bad for a team in a rebuilding year that was supposed to be ~.500.

    In response to softlaw2's comment:

    Yes, as I stated, 5-3 would be quite good. Both the Phillies and Indians are pretenders, just like the Red Sox.

    I'd like to see middle management make bold trade moves, and not get a false sense of secuirty with a 32-22 record.

    I would see if the Cubs are interested enough in dumping Soriano's last 1.5 year costs (about 27 million) enough to send he and Dan Vogelbach, who is blocked by Rizzo.

    I would then like to see them sell Ellsbury's contract to the highest NL bidder who offers a top 100 consenses ranked prospect who currently has good numbers in AA ball or above.

    Soriano would then be a 2014 platoon bridge profile.

    The OF would then look like this:

    LF Soriano (excellent slugging fit in Fenway v. LP)

    CF Bradley/Shane

    RF Shane/Nava

    Gomes is RH pinch hit bat for Iglesias, Salty, Bradley, Nava and S. Drew, and takes the DH v. enough LH starters to where Ortiz doesn't start more than 110 games total.

    There is no need to keep both S. Drew and Carp on the roster. Easier to get rid of Carp and use S. Drew as the lefty bat. One of them needs to be the bench LH bat pinch hitter, along with a platooning Nava. Iglesias should take over the starting SS job, and S. Drew should be ordered to play 3B and become the UIF'er/backup 1B, even if he's trying to impress the upcoming winter market as a starting SS. If he sulks about it, send cash and get rid of him.

    The 1B depth chart should be Napoli, S. Drew & Nava

    This team needs a RH slugging bat profile in the OF, v LP.

     

    Of course, managment is going to continue status quo, which means the biggest weakness shall remain a weakness. And the notion that it "hasn't mattered so far" will be exposed over the 162 games.

    Your moves make the team much worst and all driven by whether or not you like a player.

    The good thing for us Red Sox fans is that they will be in first place heading to NY. Which was more important than 6-2. The Yankees are in some trouble. They have played way over their heads and finally starting to show what they really are.

    Same old blathering b.s.    Only difference is you neglected to mention J. Upton in this one.   You're slipping.
