Don't get me wrong, I love churros... but I voted yes.

Hopefully. Guthrie doesn't deserve to be lumped in with that ****, though.

O's gave me a free ticket, as it's the month of my birth.

Which of the three shall I attend? My pick is whichever game Danks is in [wednesday, I do believe].

i think guthrie is going to give us a challenge since i believe he's supposed to the ace of their staff. other than that, we need to play well heading into the toronto series since they're playing well.

Guthrie should be their toughest matchup, but it's baseball. We have no clue what will happen until then.

And as things break, we are slated to see Halliday on Sunday.

I'd like to say yes, but the white sox like to lose the games against pitchers they should pound. Like RA Dickey...

Also the Sox have troubles with pitchers they've never seen before. The pitcher we'll be facing just got called up.

All that aside. This is a very winnable series and I will be disappointed if we don't take it.

And we will probably lose 2 of 3 against the O's but pound Halladay and sweep the Jays, who are playing well, to come out 4-2 in the 6 games. All will be forgiven, we will take 2 of 3 against Seattle, and all will be bliss.

FWIW, here are the Sox's career numbers against these guys:

Brad Bergesen (would be MLB debut... gulp)
Jeremy Guthrie (http://www.baseball-reference.com/play-index/p-pvb.cgi?n1=guthrje01#choice=&bats=&minPA2=0&year_game=career&opp_id=CHW&orderby=PA&orderbyb=Name&minPA=0&orderbydir=DESC&orderbydirb=ASC&n1=guthrje01&as=pitcher)
Adam Eaton (http://www.baseball-reference.com/play-index/p-pvb.cgi?n1=eatonad01#choice=&bats=&minPA2=0&year_game=career&opp_id=CHW&orderby=PA&orderbyb=Name&minPA=0&orderbydir=DESC&orderbydirb=ASC&n1=eatonad01&as=pitcher)

Wow 34 people think we have a chance and 0 do not. Homefish hasn't seen this thread...yet.

Those who have read my posts over the years know that I am not a dark cloud, but I would really like to see Jenks get past his O's hangup. For some reason, they always get to him. The last three I saw the Sox in Baltimore, Bobby blew the save the first two times, and managed to close it out the most recent. Maybe that last time had something to do with me leaving in the 8th inning. Hmmm...

I'm having a flashback to Radhames Liz. Let's not get greedy until we've won the first two games of the series.

How about we just score 10 runs each game and not worry about bobby.

Adam Jones will probably miss the whole series with a hamstring injury he suffered yesterday.

That means more Pie/Freel for us. And Freel leaves today's game with a hand injury...

DirtySox

He left with a head injury I thought? Was hit in the head with a pickoff throw.

Good for the Sox because Jones has been raking this year, but bad for my fantasy team. Oh well, I'll take it.

Sold outing by Radhames Liz, who managed to nearly double his 36.00 ERA.

Awesome.

Still, we should never discount how historically bad the Sox are at hitting pitching that they've never seen before. We might be in for a rough ride in Camden Yards (where we haven't done all that well in the past few years anyway, IIRC).

Let's just hope that if this guy catches lightning in a bottle that he doesn't do it against us. >_>

Series line is tight. Game tomorrow is a pick. I'd say the series is a flip.

Orioles are in a losing streak and we're playing well.
This is where you take a sweep and get that record to 10-5.
Ya gotta pound teams when they're down.

It's hard not to be optimistic about this series, frankly. I guess the best I can come up with is that it is also the back end of our rotation that is coming up, so we could conceivably be outslugged in a 10-8 or 12-10 game.

Sox will sweep, I'm almost sure of it.

It seems like when everything points to the Sox sweeping or taking 2 out of 3, that's when they fail. I'm mostly worried because of Baltimore having a 5 game losing streak coming into it. Teams don't go on 8 game losing streaks very often. It would have been nice if they had taken at least one of the Red Sox games.

Let's just hope that if this guy catches lightning in a bottle that he doesn't do it against us. >_>You recall incorrectly. 3-2 in 2008, 1-3 in 2007, 2-1 in 2006, and 4-0 in 2005. Aside from the awful 2007 team, we've played well there, including a four-game sweep in '05.

Sidenote: As I was going through the schedules of the past several years, I noticed that the 2007 team swept a four-game set in Tampa Bay. :o: I know the Rays were awful that year, but so were the White Sox.

Yeah, I think the bad memories of a couple games might have left him with the impression that we've played poorly there. The one loss in 2006 was a blown save by Bobby later in the year (Aug/Sept) IIRC, and of course the loss during the resumption of the suspended game last year. I think Bobby's first blown save last year came early at Balitimore as well.

...huh. I could swear that we did worse there than that. I guess that it was just Bobby that skewed my memory. :?:

Even though things broke bad for the Sox this is a good reminder that nothing matters but what happens on the field. Numbers and stats don't give any insight to what will happen in the real world. This holds whether you are some batement dwelling stat geek posting between D&D games or a Joe Lunchpail like that cool ESPN piece described. Forget thinking you can know anything about the game unless you watch every pitch from every team.

Also is the site running really slow for anyone else. I can't seem to log on except through my phone. Weird.

For some reason Eaton owns us. He's a mediocre pitcher at best but i watched him out pitch Javy in Philly in '07 and then he dominated us yesterday as well.
