    An encouraging game

    I started a thread, The Danger, about the possibility of losing 6 games on this road trip, including all three in Philly, and am delighted to say I was wrong.   Now I'm hoping the Sox can take all three in Houston this weekend and finish 5-4. 

    More than that, you gotta love it when Lester pitches so great and the lineup produces despite no Youk, no Ortiz, no Crawford, and no hits from AGon.  Plus Lackey last night and Miller's last start.  Hopefully, Beckett's problems yesterday were just a glitch caused by the almost two weeks between starts plus fighting a flu bug.

    LOL...yeah, real encouraging. The lineup scored their runs off of two guys who have ERA's of 4+ and 9+ and WHIPs of 1.5+ and 2.2+. Great job!!

    We caught a lucky break when Cole went down  Hopefully we can finish this nite mare of a road trip on a good note.

    Congrats to Theo for the Cam move, along with Jason, Ells, Josh and especially Lester today.  Jason is doing the best he can to help now its up to Drew and McD to wake up, otherwise they could be next.

    Anyone want to start a positive Francona thread?

    I don't get it, they play badly, it's all his fault.

    They play well, he has nothing to do with it.

    Re: An encouraging game

    After the game Abraham noted that Pedroia has batted cleanup five times and hit homers in three of the games--to which Pedroia said, "don't tell me, tell the manager, man."  So Abraham did and got this response:  "Pedroia is small in stature but not in his opinion of himself."  Perfect.  This was an encouraging game.

    UR projection came close, MAX.
    Taking two of three or a sweep in Houston means 4-5/5-4 ... which can be defined as "holding their own".
