    It is always to win both games of a doubleheader, but even more difficult to win in the rain.  At least it isn't raining like it was yesterday.

    Final stage of dog days and nasty schedule. If Red Sox can stay no more than 2 games back by 1st day of September, RedSox win division. No easy task, but doable. Starting pitching has not been impressive. Buch instead of Wakefield is like going from salad to dung.

    Tampa is just a spoiler at this late stage. Yankees own Tampa. Red Sox don't play a lot of good baseball against Tampa. The extra inning 1-0 win will hopefully turn the psychology and trend.

    What say I?  Here's what I say:

    I like your posts and you add a lot to the forum, but I DO wish you'd stop typing in bold caps.  It makes my eyes and ears hurt! 

    Besides that, it adds emphasis to everything you say (and sorry, but it's not ALL worth emphasis! :-) ) which in turn trivializes everything you say by making it all equal. 

    Now, as to your post, no, I don't want to be tied with the Y's this morning either, but to keep it in perspective, back on April 20 I'd have BEGGED for a guarantee that this team would be in 1st place on August 16. 

    I believe that with Bucchholtz this team is the best in the AL East, and without him this team is on an even par with the Yankee$.  The Sox have fought themselves back to where they need to be.  Now they need to finish the job.

    Good luck with that. He once responded to one of my posts by confessing his bark was worse than his bite, so I imagine that caps are just one aspect of the bark and doing otherwise would be like trying to teach an old dog new tricks. But I kinda like the old dog anyway, so just let him keep barking away. (And yes, I think I would agree with your assessment of the team, w/ and w/out Buck.)

    To date the Sox are 10-10 vs. Rays, Royals, Rangers, and A's while the Yankees are 18-5 vs. Royals, Twins, A's, and Orioles.  Percentages say Yanks lead by 4 on September 1.

    The TB Rays are no slouches.     Splitting the doubleheader should be acceptable.

    ROFL.  Thanks.  It's been 40 years since someone called me "Young fella"!  :-)  I've often been tempted to ask the ages of posters here, just to give myself a little perspective on where we're all coming from.  I've decided not to because 1) it's really none of my business, and 2) because I sometimes have the distinct feeling that some posters here don't even have a passing relationship with the truth.  :-)

    I thought we'd put to bed a long time ago the issue of how many posts a person has to have to be considered credible.  I like the tag line of another poster which says something like 'pay no attention to my posts.  I don't have enough to be credible'. 
    I don't deny that you know your baseball and that you love OUR sox.  Please remember that you're not the only one here with those qualifications and neither one of those has any bearing on the number of times a person has posted here. 

    Also, I have no clue how you dragged politics into this, but you have NO IDEA what my political beliefs/affilations are.  FTR - I consider myself to be very close to ZILLA, more Libertarian than anything else, but they don't have all the answers either.

But according to Kim (the pink rose poster) I wasn't entilted to my opinion. So thanks for sticking up for those of us who love our sox just as much as the next guy!!!!!!

    Its almost always a good fight to the end with the Sox and Yanks..The Rays can play the spoiler as I dont see them being a factor other than that..Its never good for the blood pressure, but it makes for some great baseball!! Keep the faith Bill!!

    Ya, I went through that too, as have many others.  This is the ultimate Catch-22:  "You shouldn't be posting because you haven't posted enough yet." 
    Huh?  LOL

    My advice?  Be patient and try to make good thought-out posts. There are maybe 50 "regulars" who post here (I don't consider myself a 'regular' with only 500+ posts) and some of them are very clique-ish.  And most aren't.  For the most part it's a very good bunch of people who have one thing in common - the love of the Sox. 

    Make intelligent posts, spell player's names right, and don't be thin-skinned.  Enjoy yourself, this is supposed to be fun.  :-)  Good luck!
