    I like your optimisim bosoxmal. My biggest concern though is Lester. This guy has great stuff, we all know that. But let's be honest, he's having a tough time with his control. He's had too many games lately, where he's putting up 30 pitch innings. Our starters have got to get to the 7th inning in order for this team to be successful. 5 and 1/3 just isin't going to cut it.

    Sox can win it all, for sure.  It depends more on management, are they going to force feed us any more helpings of Wake and Lackey in the post-season if we get there?  If they don't, if they finally sit these guys once and for all and stop babyinb Buch and let him pitch, we can go all the way, no question.

    I say forget about conjecturing whom we wish to dominate/sweep etc. when the Yankees & Rays play eachother.  Let's just concern ourselves with winning our next 2 games for sure vs the Orioles---the way we've been playing, nothing is a slam dunk !  I recall when we lost 5 in a row earlier in the month and then beat Toronto 18-6 on Sept 13, and many comments were we had turned it around, no more hitting funk, plenty of clutch hits etc. and then we lost 5 out of 6 before we got the 18 runs again yesterday. We have been an up and down streaky team with more of the streaks going down lately.

    Again, win the next 2 as if they are must wins and then we can hope, wish, conjecture etc. that we can keep up our good record against the Yankees. They are going to want to pitch Sabathia against us 1 game because prior to his last victory over us which he did not dominate, we had beaten him 4 in a row and they'd like him to have some confidence when we meet eachother in the playoffs.
     
    They'll like to pitch AJ Burnett too who had been floundering & beat us but didn't dominate so they'd like to get his confidence up too. It'd be nice to beat both those guys in the next series. I recall they didn't dominate &, I believe, we could have won both games but, as has happened to us a lot in Sept., we couldn't get the clutch hits !

    Posted by bosoxmal[/QUOTE]

    No, but that's pretty funny, given the way you pump up the RS rotation and rose color everything else. Now, if the title of this thread was :

    Sox Could Still Win It all, and Here's Why


    That I could see. Regardless, if the RS win the whole shebang, given the way they've fallen apart, it wouldn't be impossible, given their pedigree, but it would qualify as some sort of mini-miracle.

    Desire my friend, desire. 2004, 2007 taught us that in order for a team to win it all they must really want it. Deep down in their gutt they're got to want that championship, these players and managment team this year do not have that desire. 

    They want a paycheck more than they want a championship. 

    Too many big contracts that aren't producing. Lakcy and Crawford come to mnd but here are others.

    Guys and Girls - Clay threw 32 pitches in a simulated game. He has no way to ramp up innings other than in the instructional league. He may be a relief pitcher but nothing more. Don't get excited as the regular season has 9 games left.

    [QUOTE]Boston do not have the worst pitching all playoff team.  If you click starting pitching via ESPN stats, they won 64 games compare to Yankees won 68 games and Detriot won 69 games.  Only Texas won more games than all four teams.

If you click number of innings that the starters have pitched in all season along, Boston is 902 innings, Detriot is 940, Texas is 948 and Yankees is 929. But if you take away wins/innings pitched for each team's top #1 pitcher such as Sabathia, Wilson, Verlander, and Lester (he lead the team for most wins), they are all pretty even against each other for the bottom half of the rotation.  So therefore, the starting pitching after #1 or maybe #2 are all pretty even against each other.  Then for Bullpen, Yankees ranks higher than all three teams, while Texas ranked worst.  Texas have more saves than Boston, but Texas have more blown saves than Boston.   So who really have the best over-all pitching staffs?  None.  All of them have weaknesses!!  Maybe Texas may have healthiest pitching staffs, but right now they seem to look wear and tear on themselves. Really all Boston need to pick top best 11 pitchers.  Normally the last three pitchers are rarely use.  Maybe just use for mop up like Wakefield/Derek Lowe have done it in the past.

    That's nice, except it's not April, May, June, July or August.

    It's September, and when they should be hitting their stride into the playoffs, they easily have the worst rotation of any potential playoff team, not to mention their bullpen stinks. Beckett is the only quality starter at the moment. Lester is fine against an aggressive team that will swing at his cutters out of the zone. But he's maybe good for 4 or 5 innings against a team that won't. After those two, who are your trotting out that isn't pitching BP?
