    Re: ALDS Game 3 Thread: Red Sox at Rays

    Sox have scored well against Cobb in regular season, but the kid is deceptive, and is on a quick learning curve.  His hesitation with his left leg up before delivery is pretty unusual, and I noticed in that game against the Indians he used it well by varying the hesitation.  That tends to throw the timing of the batters some, as well as the runners on base trying to steal.

    This Red Sox is a veteran lineup, even Middlebrooks has matured enough, for adjusting to this quirky delivery by Cobb.

    Bucholz has been improving with every start after the long layoff, and was almost where he was at his peak earlier in the season in the last start.  Combined with the relatively light weight batting of the Rays, I would think it would be a sweep for Sox.

    But then I also thought Price would at best give up only 2 runs in a complete game, so nothing is a given in playoffs.

    Maddon says he wants to return to Boston for game 5 as it is pretty this time of year. Unfortunately, if we don't sweep the A's or Tigers 4-0, Game 5 will be in Cal or Michigan as format 2 at home, 3 away and 2 at home.  Sorry Joe !!!

    Its time to go for the jugular. While I think we could beat Moore in game 4, I do not want to have to face Price again.

    Every day you do not eliminate an opponent the risk grows......Cobb has been good but oddsmakers would probably make tonights game a pickem, that wont be the case if it goes to a Game 4.....besides the obvious ability to set up your rotation again for the next round, we need to close this series out tonight with statistically our best pitcher on the mound in a park where he has always been dominant.

    Cleveland never face him in all year along which that was why they couldnt figure out how to bat against him during the one game wildcard game.  Boston faced him four times this year at the same time they know him well.  Same goes to Tampa against Bucholtz.

    Some of you are right, there are alot of pressure on Cobb than Bucholtz tonite.  I think once Boston scores quickly,  Boston will keep piling up more runs.

    Surprised the other ALDS game in Detroit is not on TBS.  Only on MLB TV.  Glad Sox game is on national TV.

    TBS is running Family Guy now.  MLB.com says the game is on MLB network.

    A's up by 1.  Somehow I would rather prefer Sox play the Tigers only because I hate late games in the left coast.  Sox can handle both Verlander and Scherzer, especially in a 7 game series.

    Dice K had the pauses that were really pauses. And Dice K was effective when he had his control, pause or no pause. Most pitching coaches will tell you the change in timing can throw you off. With Cobb  (and I've seen him pitch at least 6 or 7 times this year) is his changes of speed---a lot like Uehara. The secret, for the hitters, is to wait. Mosat of this RS team are veterans, and I think they know that better than anybody!

    Hey Jete, good to "see" you.  Kinda fun to see Sox mashup even supposedly good pitchers this year.  Reminds me of the Idiots with their beards and 'tude.
