The days of reckoning are coming up for the Sox in the next
three weeks. Any game Wake pitches at this point gives
you only about a 30% chance of winning, even Kc/ Too many
passed balls and steals in a tight game will sink the Sox.
When the ball doesn't knuckle, it's a HR or double against us.
We gotta play Texas,the Yanks, and Texas again. That's about
10 games or so against playoff teams. With our depleted
lineup, we will have a hard time scoring against the surging
Yankees. They are running up big run totals every game with
their balanced lineup, and their pitching, at this point, is
better than ours. If we gotta go with Wake, Bedard, and Lackey
against these teams, are chances of winning are way less
than 50%. With Lavarnway and Tek , Aviles, McDonald and
Lowrie in there, we really don't honestly match up well in
head to head play with the Yanks and Rangers. If we can hold
off the Rays, it will be a small miracle.
