    Can Dempster go another 7 innings vs this Royals team?

    Hello emp9   :)

    I say, "Yes!".  Dempster will go 7 innings, 2 ER, 7 Ks, and 2 BBs.  Boston wins 5-3 today.

    A quick glance at his starts this year, he seems to be beating opposing lineups' hitters 5-9. 3-4 not as much. But that is to be expected. His worst innings are the 2nd & the 4th.

    Re: Game Thread 17: Royals at Red Sox

    Santana went through a really poor stretch last year beginning May 30-July 21. His ERA went up 1.22 and he got lit up for some longballs. Later on he found what was missing and lowered his ERA from 6.00 to 4.93, before getting trashed again in his final start. I suspect he was the victim of some shoddy defense. All in all, he's a solid pitcher who relies on the strike out, and can be tough if he's on. The Royals have only scored 8 runs in his three starts, so it's not like he's been able to just sit back and throw strikes, look for him to make smart pitches.

    Royals looked very good yesterday--obvious why they have a shot at winning their division.  Like us, good pitching and timely hitting. 

    Injuries so far early in the season:  Ortiz, Lackey, Drew, Hanrahan, Victorino, Napoli (no injury, but missed a game at 1b without DH'ing).  If Ortiz doesn't DH tonight, I figure Napoli will with Carp playing 1B.

    Key game for Dempster. He really has to go deep into this game in case Webster cannot do it in game 2. The pen will be a mess if Dempster has to exit early.
