Did the Sox shutting it down after putting up the 7 run inning on Friday cost us the rest of the series?

Eh, there were no walks, and some decent hitters hit the ball well. No harm done.

Swisher sure seems a lot more comfortable at the plate now that he's playing his best field position. How does Konerko displace him?

And why wasn't Russell put in there tonight when it was 9-4? If he can't be used and trusted in a five-run game, then what's he doing on the team? I guess this means he's odd man out when Paulie comes back.

With the June schedule (relatively easy), they needed to have an excellent month. They did just that. This team is in good position after 3 months of play. They have played well, but have plenty of room for improvement.

I don't think it's a matter of him not being trusted. Rather, some of the other guys in the bullpen needed to get some work in. Russell is the last priority on this team and is being treated as such. That's the life of the last guy out of the bullpen.

They didn't lose their edge like they did in this game. Sorry, BBJ, I've seen this team do this too many times after getting a big lead early. And almost every time, it carries to the next day.

I'm happy with the win, but they chalked it up in the W column in the third inning. I hate that.

The Sox scored 10 runs last Friday and followed it up with 6 on Saturday. How is that ****ting the sheets?

If they don't produce the next two days, it likely will have more to do with facing two good pitchers than flipping the offense switch to the off position.

Agreed. Hopefully Crede's fine goes up to about 25K per throwing error. That'll learn him. :cool:

At that point in a game you throw a lot of strikes. If Crede doesn't throw that ball away, they probably don't score more than 1 run.

Why are you putting "winning" in quotes Lip? What's the significance of the quotes?

Nice... Swish and Thome starting to pick it up. The Sox got so many guys capable of carrying a team all they need is 2 hot at a time.

Another amazing heads up play by Ramirez on the relay to get the guy too far off first but I guess he's only human after all. I mean if he was as great as we all want him to be, he'd find a way to hang onto screaming 115 MPH line drives that are 10 feet off the ground...

Such clutch hitting lately by swish among others...it is a joy to see.
He could end up with 20hrs and 75 -80 rbis. And with his glove and versitilaty in the field, he might just work out.

And the trend is even better (won 54%, 55% and 63% of games respectively) . Maybe we can go past the 64% mark. :cool:

I agree. Sloppy wins are going to happen some times when you get a big lead early. Certainly the beat the heck out of sloppy losses.

Peralta's five-for-five game was stronger than Lee's five-for-five game Saturday, no bad hops or opposite-field dying quails. I hope the Sox have a better approach to Peralta Tuesday night.

:rolleyes:

I think a 10 1/2 game deficit that Cle is facing in the morning is a bit bigger in the carry over department.

My worry is they will be facing the top winning pct pitcher tomorrow, followed by Sabathia, followed by Duscherer who has the lowest ERA in the league. :o:

I am more worried about that then any hypothetical, psychological, and, most likely, non-existent baggage af a crappy ninth that did not cost them the game.

Look at what they did to Ryan Dempster Friday afternoon. They rose his ERA 1 whole run! This lineup looks more focused now. I think they'll be ok. They've proven that they have the capabilities.

I saw that on the DVR when I got home from the game. Hilarious! Is that for regular homers or just grand slams? :tongue:

Awesome game to be at on a perfect night for baseball. Myself and my 9 co-workers had a blast.

My only gripe is why Russell didn't pitch the 9th with a 5 run lead?? I'd like to see the guy with my last name pitch in a game I attend. Maybe it will be on Friday...

The rest of this week promises to be brutal for the sox...Lee,CC,Duschbag,Harden,Smith,Blanton,...3 of the top 5 era pitchers in the league and smith who shuts them down, and CC who is hot.

Very true! There was some clown in a Carlos (cough) Baerga jersey in our section making a big deal about everything in the first inning. When Ja-Honny Peralta hit the double, you would have thought the Tribe had won the pennant.

In the first, after Quentin and Dye K'ed, the guy almost had a stroke he was yelling so loud. Then Mr. Thome whipped out his can of ****.

Anyone see the lady flashing in sec 114 last night? I think it was the eighth inning or so, she apparently flashed the crowd behind her a few times (She was seated in one of the first two rows). Security came down and removed her, as she was being escorted out she was getting high fives by all the guys.

She was in 115 and yes I saw her although I was a few rows back. Security on the field busted her when the others came down. All the guys were telling her she was their hero.
