    Thanks Hill.
    Do you have the numbers going back to when inter-league play was initiated?

    You can look it up:

    I had to go through each team's schedule and record for each year.

    I thought you might have had this data handy.
    There should be an easier way to find this out.

    Great outing by Lackey yesterday.  Too bad Hale (or Terry from the locker room) didn't ride that horse a little longer, but it's just not their MO.  Anyway, I am totally encouraged by Lackey's showing.  They just ran up against a buzz saw in Anderson.  His breaking ball was unhittable.  Sometimes you just have to tip your cap.

    If they don't win one on the road soon, it'll come crashing down with a fury.  No time like the present to get that monkey of their collective backs.

    First road win - check.  Has anyone noticed that the starters' collective ERA this last time through the rotation is microscopic?

    I would say so Joel. In the last 5 games, these are the starters averages:
    6.2 IP 4 H 1 ER 2.2 BB 4.4 K .2 HR 99 Pitches, not too shabby!

    Not too shabby, indeed.  Unfortunately, Colon tossed a good one today and the damn Yankees downed the Jays.  Back to 4 1/2 again.

    Great game thrown by Beckett, Bard, Jenks and Pap in game one vs the Angels.  What have you got to say now, Andrew?  Are you starting to believe yet?

    How about this pitching staff, huh?  ERA for the starters keeps going down.  Lester pitched another good one last night.  Don't know about Jenks.  Pap was painting his fastball.  When this team starts hitting, watch out!

    Get to .500 first.....I'd like to see how we do tonight without Papelbon too as the bullpen has too many holes.  Win tonight and all of sudden you are seeing a completely different team than the first 2 weeks of the season....

    Dude, under .500 with a shaky pen........how far you gonna with that?

    I don't know about you but I ain't comfortable heading into May in last freakin place.....

    It's a swing game....if they lose they are 8-12 vs a win @ 10-11......they simply can not let up now......they need to get out of that historic-sized hole they dug for themselves asap........

    They simply can not let their foot off of the pedal now and pat themselves on the back....5 A's and 5 F's only get you a "C" average.

    Andrew, you are impossible.  They've won six of their last seven and all you can do is tell us to wait and see how they do in their next game(s).  Will you ever give credit where credit's due?  You have made the following posts on this thread.

    How about just getting on track.

    Dude, right now winning 3 games seems incredibly difficult.

    Joel - how is this team ever going to go 10-5? It would be a moral victory if we could have some stretches of going 5-10.  5-10 would put them in line for a big turn around.

    They'll snap out of it, Andrew.  Will you?

    When they gave me a sign of life I will. 

    Joel - let's see what Lester does tomorrow first..........


    I don't know about you but I ain't comfortable heading into May in last freakin place.....

    They win, they win, and they win some more.  Bottom line, Andrew, is that they could run off ten straight and you would not be satisfied unless they are leading the division.  Am I right?

    Re: 3 1/2 back with 143 to go... the cake's getting smaller

    When you lose and you lose and you lose you got a LOT of winning to do to make it up.

    The starting pitching has turned it around.  I am completely amazed that they can go from terrible to great just like that.  Only complaint on D is the catcher but hey, Theo needs more than just 4 years to find a real catcher.....Line Up is a little concerning - too many LOB's and I'd take Crisp over Craw right now.....and still, notta one bona fide lefty in the pen (when it takes 2 to win).

    Other than that, one game at a time...The hole was deep man.......

    No, Joel but is 500 too much to ask for? 

    It looks good but what if they lose 2 or 3 straight....8-14 would make winning 6 of 7 not as meaningful........

    Ooh ... I think you're coming around, Andrew.  Middle relief has been scary.  Salty is not yet working out, but if the rest of the team can start hitting, I'm okay with that.  I have no doubt that Crawford will turn it around soon.

    Damn!  I just gave you credit for starting to come around and then saw your latest post.  If they lose two or three straight the sky will not fall.  They will rebound and reel off a few wins.  There are 143 games left, man.  Just enjoy the ride.

    Like I said, they dug themselves such a hole that they have to just take one game at a time and keep winning....they simply can not afford another 0-5 or 2-8 stretch this season.........get to .500 before May and then we'll take 2 minutes out for cake and then it's back to work because 81 games ain't gonna cut it......
