    Re: 8/2 Game Thread Beckett vs Huff

    Not a good start  in august, we'd better beat the spankees this weekend,  9 games left  w/ them into early sept.  Then  to the twins, mariners, 3 at home to the devil dawg, and 4 @ in KC & texas.  Brutal schedule

    One other point that hate to admit about Ozzie Guillen was, that he was right about Bobby Jenks. He has been a complete bust and I wonder if its because of his weight that causes a strain on his back.

    Does anybody else have the feeling that the Sox will be tied for 1st at the end of the night? Had that feeling even before both games started. You could see this coming a few days ago.

    The offense is in a funk right now. Ells and Reddick have suddenly gone cold. Crawford has gone back to his early season woes.

    RS had a GREAT July but still couldn't shake the Skankees.

    I have that feeling somewhat tonight, but not totally. I had no doubt whatsoever they were going to lose last night. Could be worse, could actually be in second place when the Yankees come to town. Let's hope it doesn't come to that.

    In Response to Re: 8/2 Game Thread Beckett vs Huff:
    You are right about that but there are times when he has fast runners on base and a slow runner at the plate like AGON and he does not try to stay out of the DP.  I have watched the SOX for years but he does not use the weapon of small ball in close games when we are not pounding out 10 runs in a game. It is frustrating to watch. That KC game last Monday was frustrating to watch. In Response to Re: 8/2 Game Thread Beckett vs Huff :

    It is called taking the bat out of A-Gon's hands for one thing. Open up first and they can walk him. Also there is at least a 25% chance of a caught stealing and about a percentage that if it is run and hit that the ball is hit at some one for a DP. It also forces the batter in hit and run to swing at a pitch whether it is good or not. Lot's of bad stuff can happen just like DP's can happen.

    The inning some were whining about Ells got on with one out. The Indians had a LH on the mound committed to holding Ells close. He was not getting a good lead. Santana throws out 35% of the runners trying to steal on him. And the double steal? If either guy gets caught you take the bat out of A-Gon's hands and even if not you give the pitcher the option to work around Adrian and have the dream DP combo, A-Gon on 1st and Youk up.

    I am pretty sure the odds of a DP are somewhere around 35% with Adrian up and over 40% he won't make an out.

    Wow, the game is right there to be won and I just read about three pages of whining.  Why do you guys judge the team from at bat to at bat?  Sometimes games are pitching battles.  The other team gets paid, too.

    Even a blind pig finds a truffle. I don't know so much that he was right as much as he just guessed well, and did it out of his own malice.

    Next year the Red Sox could put a major hurt on the Yankees if CC Sabathia opts out of his contract and the Sox make a play for him. The Yankees would hurt for a long time if they lost him. He would be the top top pitcher on the market at the end of the year.

    Whence this base nabbing speed from the Chicken? Don't remember him stealing so much in the past.
