    Weekend series with Seattle

    The Seattle Mariners bring a 12-game losing streak into Fenway Park on Friday for a three-game series against the Red Sox (followed by a three-game series at Yankee Stadium).

    The Sox will face Seattle starters Felix Hernandez, Blake Beavan and Michael Pineda.

    Certain sweep for the Red Sox?

    We might as well give up on tomorrow night. Even if lackey does pitch well, we still have to find a way to hit king felix.

    I hope we can steal the Felix game and win Sat because Pineda is a tough customer.

    Despite being 12 games below .500, the Seattle Mariners have already taken a series from each of the five AL East teams this season.

    The Mariners are 11-11 against AL East teams and 32-44 (.421) against the rest of the field.

    The Red Sox this weekend won't face Seattle starters Jason Vargas and Doug Fister, who posted wins at Fenway Park in April.

    Im not saying that no one knows how to hit felix. Im just saying we have not had a very good past against him. Ofcourse with the mariners awful hitting and lackey turning it around a little, i guess theres a better chance we win than i originally thought. Either way, king felix has proved tough for us in the past, so if the mariners are even able to score 3 or 4, they could win. But again, the same could be said for us.

       With the offensively challenged Mariners any thing less than 2 of 3 would be disappointing.

    That's a bizarre question "certain sweep for the Sox". Not sure a series is ever a certain sweep. What would make anyone think Lackey beating Felix is certain and then the Sox would have to win two more games.

    Here's what is certain... Sox won't get swept.

    Re: Weekend series with Seattle

    The Sox are currently 13-3 in July. At one point, they were also 13-3 in June. Actually, they got to 14-3. Given that, their 16-9 June record was disappointing. I don't see a similar fade for this month. The next 10 games are:

    3 at home versus the freefalling Mariners, losers of their last 11!
    4 at home versus the weak Royals
    3 at the Pale Hose who have a losing record at home

    My guess is that they end the month at 20-6.

    Since you brought it up Seattle are Sellers and they have a decent RF in Ichiro...ya lets get Ichiro in RF for Sox...LOL...

    Seattle has three/four good young players they can build around, minus King Felix...Smoak,Ackley,Seager...and up and comming Fister...

    Not to mention three pitching prospects -- 18-year-old Taijuan Walker, 22-year-old James Paxton and 21-year-old Danny Hultzen -- whom the Mariners would be unlikely to trade for 21-year-old Anthony Ranaudo.

    Win the series - that's always the goal.  A sweep would be gravy.

    The pitching matchup doesn't favor us, but the offensive match up sure does.  The Mariners offense is rather sad.

    Almost forgot, not really a prospect anymore, but Michael Pineda...he listed as 22 years old, but he looks much older...

    hey Hill

    What are the theories on Figgins? Has there been serious talk about a trade to swap bad contracts?

    The Reds reportedly have interest:

    The better offense should take the series.  But the Sox seem to struggle against very good pitching.

    I wouldn't put any of the Royals games in the win bank just yet.  They seem to be a team that the Sox sometimes get vexed by.

    Cute Hill.
    You put yourself in a win-win position.

    The M's are the great sleeping pill. They lull their opponents into a trance.

    This 2011 version quit, pure and simple. Almost every reputable hitter is under-performing, and most are complacent and over-paid. Very poor FO management.
    They are no longer contenders, but as underdogs, they should still get a smile out of you.
