Not to be confused with the June thread I just bumped.

3 @ TEX
4 vs LAA
3 vs KC
All-Star Break
4 @ MIN
3 @ SEA
3 @ OAK
4 vs SEA
2 vs OAK

Total 26 games

This looks like a significantly harder schedule than June. It's put up or shut up time. I think we'll see what this team is made of in July.

I think around 15 wins. But I wouldn't be surprised if it were more, nor would I be surprised if it were less.

8 series. I'll take 16 wins, including 2 in Minnesota.

Basically, they need 16 wins a month from here on out, and hope 88 wins is enough.

Yeah, 16 seems reasonable. I'd love to see 18 or 20. Basically, much of it boils down to a series in Minnesota, as usual.

15-20 sounds good. Fully expecting some offensive help to arrive at some point during the month (And I don't mean Mark Teahan). Hopefully the starting pitching continues to blossom.

This schedule will test the mental toughness of this team.

I voted 10-15; I'd rather go low than high so I can be pleasantly surprised if they exceed my expectations.

If the Sox win 2 of 3 the rest of the way their record is some ridiculous 25 games over .500 (I think). They should carry that mentality.

I'll go for fifteen wins. The pitching will slip up more than it has recently. I'd up my number by about 2 if we get Dunn considering who he is replacing. Though I will admit, kotsay has looked less pitiful to me lately.

12-14. I'm worried about the west coast trip and Minnesota.

3 @ TEX [1-2]
4 vs LAA [2-2]
3 vs KC [1-2]
4 @ MIN [1-3]
3 @ SEA [2-1]
3 @ OAK [2-1]
4 vs SEA [2-2]
2 vs OAK [2-0]

I've got it at 13-13 for the month, and I think I'm a bit optimisic with respect to the West Coast trip. If this team can't beat the craptacular KC Royals, this team simply isn't that good, no matter how you spin it.

Granted, IF KW can correct some of the weaknesses he and Ozzie built into the roster this offseason during July, I may adjust accordingly.

We will be swept @ TEX and @ MIN, but we should clean up against OAK/SEA.

2-1 vs. KC
1-3 vs. MIN
1-2 vs. SEA
2-1 vs. OAK
2-2 vs. SEA

A 10-16 month that snuffs out any hope we have of at least staying in this race for the season.

25 games over .500 is not ridiculous, first.

And one cannot finish and odd number over/under .500 unless a game gets cancelled.

I'm going with 17 wins :smile:

I'll say 13-13. Maybe if Beckham and Viciedo start racking up hits to go along with the better hitting from the rest of the team, we'll do better. I don't expect KW to get us another bat before the end of July (if at all).

Also, to do better, the Sox need better outings from the pitching staff (especially Buehrle and Peavy). If we're going to go through July with many outings were these guys struggle and are out after 6 innings, then we're not going anywhere.

I'll go 15 if we wait to add a hitter until the deadline, 20 if Kenny gets a hitter soon.

I say around 14 wins...but it could be as much as 26 or as little as zero...:scratch:

Not sold on the offense yet. The pitching will definitely be better. The west coast trip could be bad, so I'll go with 11. I hope I'm wrong and that we win all 26, but I don't see the offense getting it done.

lol, reminds me of a Hedberg joke. I started a death metal band, people either loved us or hated us or thought we were just ok.

I was thinking 14 or 15, but was unsure which to pick if I went with 15 - so I said the 10-15 option.

GoGo,

For August (or if you can modify July), you should consider non-overlapping ranges: 0-5, 6-10, 11-15, 16-20, 21-25, 26+

14-12...Still too unpredictable in the hitting department.

Since this is a predictions thread, I'll put it out there.

- win 6 series
- 1 sweep
- after the all-star break, this team goes on a winning run that has should have happened the past 3 years.
- DYE comes back as the DH after the break

- Again, just a hunch.

:)

This is the most realistic possbility, especially if they don't face both Cliff Lee and Felix Hernandez.

5-10

I'm excited by how we played against NL teams, but I think down to Earth means the talent on club is still extremely lacking on offense. However, now that the pitching is here, we'll be losing by less!

Exactly. This is the stretch they need to be on top of their game. I mentioned this back when we had won 5 in a row or so.

Ah, yeah, I should probably do that. I wasn't sure how to do it.

if we do win in July,it will be against some good teams .. no more easy NL teams to take advantage of .. i just believe that this team came together in June and that they will find a way to win .. i can't wait to see what KW pulls off .. 17-9 with solid pitching .. timely hitting .. and some luck thrown in .. let's roll
