    [QUOTE]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.

     The Sox struggle against pitchers they haven't faced more then Good Pitching !!

    Actually, the Sox have done very well against most of the top pitchers.

    Off the top of my head, the Sox have beaten Sabathia, Haren, Weaver, Colon, Hellickson, Shields -- I'm sure there are others -- and some of them more than once.

    We would face their 3 best starters, while the Yankees don't. I probably sounded like a Sox fan before the 04 series didn't I?

    I would not consider Blake Beavan among Seattle's best three starters.

    The Yankees may face Jason Vargas and Doug Fister (who both won at Fenway Park in April) and possibly Erik Bedard.

    This season the Red Sox have beaten, among others, CC Sabathia three times, Dan Haren, Ricky Romero and Bartolo Colon twice, and Jered Weaver, Ervin Santana, Carl Pavano, Max Scherzer, Brett Anderson, Brandon Morrow, Jeremy Hellickson, David Price, Yovani Gallardo, James Shields and Jeremy Guthrie once each.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Weekend series with Seattle : 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.

    Naive Mariners fans, I wish there were more than you. You are no better than a whining Yankees fan, coming on here to tell us that Jesus Montero is better than Ryan Lavarnway, which s entirely false. We will see whose prospects are better, a few seasons from now.

    Infra, the Red Sox will sweep the Mariners, easily. Strong performances from Pedroia and the middle of the line-up, along with Salty.

    [QUOTE]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?

    no! no! a thousand times no!

    law of averages. seattle has lost 12 in a row, they are due to win. unfortunately, it will be at fenway. seattle wins 2 of 3.

    hope i'm wrong.

    Can't see the Sox lineup not smacking King Felix around ... he is a great pitcher, but the Sox will crush any mistakes he makes ... and now he has to watch out for both Jake and PD.    Gonzo has his stroke back, this should be a a fun game to watch.

    Of course, this is assuming the new improved John Lackey shows up.  He has to hold it to 4 runs.

    Jete, you're trying to talk sensibly to someone who has none.

    Nailbiter for you guys last night. Pitchers like CC must hate losing those. I know Beckett has lost his share.

    "new improved."

    in advertising that usually means same old product at a higher cost.
    SLACKEY should be able to hold seattle to 4 runs. a good pitcher would hold them to 2 or less.
    sadly for the SOX, king felix is a very good pitcher and the final score will be 4-2 seattle.
