In Response to Back To The Chase
[QUOTE]Good Morning all, well with the ASG over it's back to baseball, as we know after a rough start the Sox(as expected by most) got turned around with some steady play and a few lead changes, to close the 1st half in the top spot, Yanks also played well, weathering a few injuries(actually most of the ALE has) to remain 1 game out, it will be important to play well and get out the gate fast in the 2nd half, alot of factors will come into play this half, what would you like to see improve most for your team this half?.. for me i'd like to see Jeter continue the hitting he carried into the break, for Tex to pick up his avg, and for the SP to pitch a bit deeper into games and above all remain healthy....

Morning Jete. Tough call on this; the Sox have a few issues to figure out. There's a bunch of things that have to happen for them, perhaps none bigger than Crawford's 2nd half performance. Guess my wish is for him to come back and play like we know he can. I honestly think that if that can happen, this Sox team is going to be very, very tough to beat. The thing is, our starting pitching has been decimated, but they weren't having a bad season prior to injuries. Crawford has yet to perform while healthy.
If both happen, starters and Crawford get healthy and play well, it's going to be a great second half. But after watching the NL pitching, Philly in particular, it's going to be tough for any AL team this year. Good luck in the 2nd half!
Zac...sorry I got my undies in a bundle yesterday. You're one of the good ones.
