In response to razcreation's comment:
Just about a week or so ago, the Red Sox had a 4 game lead over The Rays and a 12.5 game lead over the Yankees. Suddenly, NY is only 7.5 out and the Red Sox have lost 5 of their last 7 games.
We just do not have the pitching!
If you think we have the pitching, you are all nuts!
Chock me up as being nuts. Chock full O' NUTS!

Peavy > Way too amped up last start! He has great #2 stuff!
Dubby > Has pitched like a solid #2 / #3 starter ALL YEAR LONG. Getting tired & NEEDS SOME REST (Workman needs some spot starts)
Dempster > NEEDS A REST! Injury? Suspension?? Whatever!
Buch > Will return soon, & come up big down the stretch! #1 :) Let's pray he comes back close to where he left off!!!!
YES! We more than have the pitching to play .550 ball down the stretch, finishing with 93 - 95 wins, taking the ALE outright! We still have the hitting if guys start stepping up. Yes! the hitting has been pretty hot & cold (more cold as of late), but the boys will not quit, & the bats will be there.
