    The RedSox are lethal underdogs. This series in NY is a great example. They need to be able to measure up to expectation. That takes depth and swagger.

    I think we're gonna see Miller sooner than later. What a lift it would be if he could compliment Bard, as Hill was beginning to do.

    [QUOTE]bettered, SoldRed, GM, Softlaw, ...... Whatever!  This guy has some serious issues!  I'm not talking your garden variety obsessions!  I mean some deep seeded problems!  WOW! This $%!#'s pathological! I hope this dude's single!  Otherwise, there is one seriously messed up family out there! My guess????  He's actually been banned from his ultra right wing fundamentalist evangelical church???  Standing out as a judgemental intollerant p%!ck in that situation is really saying something! Hey SoldRed.....  Stop talking about not living by "modern values & morals."  How about just living by any values & morals?  Is race baiting part of the moral code you live by?  Funny!  Missed that in the Bible.  How 'bout good old fashioned bigotry??  You must have found that deep in the Old Testament.  How 'bout being UNBELIEVABLY PRIDEFUL & ARROGANT? ??  You must have missed the REAMS OF SCRIPTURE addressing this sin of YOURS!  "BEFORE ALL OTHER SIN" Jackwagon!  Guess you missed that???  OR, are you so arrogant that you make up your own moral code, as God clearly didn't account for your uniqueness??? BE OBNOXIOUS ABOUT BASEBALL & The Red Sox!!!!!!!!!!!! Just please shut the f^ck up about modern values & morals! If you had one ounce of respect for TRUE Christianity, YOU would NEVER let a soul know that you have any relation to it whatsoever!  You actually have the capacity to turn off fence sitters thinking of returning to the church!  You are a truly vile individual, & you will not be remotely recognized at the gate (if in fact there were a gate:).

    Just think of all those naysayers in April who thought we couldn't make up all this ground with 135 games to go.

    The Redsox are now:

    AL Stats:

    1st in slugging
    1st in OBP
    1st in Runs Scored
    1st in doubles
    1st in average

    22nd in the majors in pitching.

    In a short series all we need is 3 good starters and some relief pitchers. I like our chances!

    We are certainly leading in all the right areas.  The bullpen worries me most Boomerang, we have three solid starters but how will the pen, especially Pap do in the tight games down the stretch and into the PS?

    Usually
    8 pitchers
    are good enough
    for a playoff series:
    Beckett, Lester, Buchholtz
    Aceves, Wakefield, and Albers
    Finished off by Bard and Papelbon

    I wouldn't bet on Wake getting a PO spot!  He has been hit hard in 8 of his last 9 starts in Sep or Oct over 3 seasons.

    Re: A Realistic Look at 2011: Part II

    True, and by then someone else may have earned a top 8 slot, but some of Wake's past PO's have come after he was over-used all season, or underused before his appearance in a key situation.

    I would have no problem with him not seeing one inning in the post season.

    However, if he is only at about 130 IP for the season and still looking good. I'd have no problem seeing him in a clutch situation this fall.

    The above article discusses some players' declines. Theo is glad he passed on most! There was some talk on here about buying low on Figgins.  He has not bounced back for aome reason.

    Big wOBA drops two straight years:

    Figgins: 56 and 91
    Haffner: 80 points 2x
    JBay: 61 and 62
    Andruw Jones 61 and 80

    JD Drew: 43 and 47

    Those who bash Theo rarely admit that he has done a good job realizing when to let (or force) stars part ways with us:

    Nomar
    Pedro
    Damon
    JBay

    To name a few.

    craze4sox, pitching in general is still the problem but if we can get 3 solid starters plus 3-4 good relievers I REALLY LIKE OUR CHANCES!

    We should surpass that if we make the play offs.

    In the year of the pitcher, we are the ones with the monster bats!

    I think our pitching stats will keep rising towards the top.

    Our bats seem to do better vs good pitching and worse versus newbies.

    No. Encryption depicts a nature of secrecy.
    Cryptic writing conveys a puzzling sense.
    I think pyramid scripture is applicable.

    Remember, I've been compared to Jesus!

    I hope it's not another fatal attraction!

    The O's helped Boston by blanking the Rays tonight, 7-0 - in Baltimore.
    The O's are 3 in back of the Rays.
    They really got their plow cleaned out west, but are playing much better now at home. The Rays are 19-14 on the road.

    Looks like NY took their frustration out on the Tribe tonight...literally.
    The Indians are already in danger of falling out of first.

    Funny to see the Angels behind the M's. On paper, I figured they'd contend, but Scioscia's gang isn't getting it done this year.
