The next three series are with KC, Oakland (away) and Seattle. While the Sox's pitching hasn't put up great numbers over the last month or so, they have been playing some pretty high scoring teams. Now the Sox get the three lowest AL scoring teams in a row. I see a great chance for Carrasco to get adjusted and for the rest of the starters to build up some confidence and be ready for the playoff run. Hopefully there is no sleepwalking by the lineup.

7-2 is my call, mostly due to the Oakland mystique. 8-1? 9-0? 0-9?

6-3 would be good. 5-4 would almost be unacceptable, in my book.

And then the Rays come to town, without Longoria and Crawford...time for a big win streak.

I'll go with a happy 6-3.

They'll win 2 of 3 from KC; 2 of 3 from Oakland; and sweep Seattle for 7-2 record.

6-3 is needed.

The Twins have a lot of Oakland and Seattle the rest of the month.

Oakland is a ghost town. Good thing they're not that good this time around. They've been terrible as of late. Let's not wake them up just for us.

We need to sweep KC, sweep Seattle, and win at least 1 in Oakland. 8-1 or 7-2 are both acceptable, 6-3 would be kind of disappointing IMO. Hopefully, we can also take 2/3 from the Rays.

If they don't win at least 11 of the next 9 games I'm going to lose a lot of faith in this team.

Well I guess you have already lost the faith in this team if your expecting them to win 11 in their next 9 games.:tongue:

If they don't win at least 26 more games this month, I'm jumping ship.

If the Sox don't win 100 games, they won't make the playoffs! They need to go on a run of 35-10, if this doesn't happen I'm going to become a Cub fan!:redneck

The Sox better win the next three series. Oakland is falling apart.

I might even extend that to the Tampa series, since the Sox are at home. And then they should win the suspended game in Baltimore, and then beat them two of three.

So now is the time to get on a run, because it won't happen in September.

Things have been bad for Oakland. They are coming off of a disastrous road trip where they visited three cities and only won one game. I lost track of the losses, but there was a 10-game losing streak at one point.

The thing is, Frank Thomas began to hit in Detroit. I really wish he were still out of the lineup. The upcoming series with the Rays may show if they will get on track at home. Gio Gonzalez (who pitched much better in Toronto than you would guess from looking at his ERA of 6) will pitch against the Sox on Sunday in his third major league start. Tonight's game against Tampa Bay will be his first home start. The A's, according to their official statements, had to teach him a new pitch before they could bring him up.

Certainly, the pitching won't be as strong as the Sox faced the last time they came to the Bay Area. May 16, 17 and 18 the White Sox took over first place in the Central while sweeping the Giants as the Indians were being swept by the Reds and the Twins were losing two of three to the Rockies. I hope the upcoming trip to the Bay Area is as successful.
