In response to BurritoT-'s comment:
Here we have it, time to hit the reset button. It is a simple best of three series starting tonight.
Game One: @ Detroit
Game Two: @ Boston
Game Three: @ Boston
The Sox enter the series with a cold bat and Detroit enters with superior starting pitching. Not a good sign to start the series but ....... anything can happen. Perhaps Home Field Advantage will be a the plus people talk about.
Jon Lester faces off with Anibal Sanchez in tonights Game One. Clay Bucholz goes Game Two with Detroit yet to name a starter. I would guess that starter will depend on a 'W' or 'L' tonight.
X. Bogaerts looks to get an over-due start in order to fire up a lame offense. 1-5 batters should remain the same. Elles and Victorino are the key along with a needed blast by Ortiz or Napoli. Pedroia is so taken for granted that he is easy to forget - man is fire! Wether the Sox roll with Salty or Ross, Middlebrooks batting 7th or 9th, or Gomes over Nava, we will have to see.
Get excited for this Best of Three Series!
I agree with you but unfortunately you are facing two CY Young guys in Game 6 and Game 7. I am worried about it and tonight is the game you want. Peavy threwup all over himself last night and that hurt.
True, dat. Peavy laid an egg; I expected better. Tonight is the key to the series IMO. The winner of tonight's game will win the series. I think we can beat EITHER Scherzer OR Verlander, but trying to beat BOTH of them, even at home, is going to be very very difficult. We must win tonight; Lester has to keep us tied at least until we get into their weak bullpen. This is it; this is THE game of the series.
