Isn't that May kid the guy who threw 16 straight balls against us in his MLB debut last year?

Sweet. Starting the season off on a good note is huge. I wouldn't be surprised if we pull off an opening sweep. That would give us plenty of motivation for the rest of the season.

If Garland can cut down significantly on his BBs, he'll be in good shape. That's been his achilles heel.

That Ascensio guy actually pitched pretty well last season. After that 16 straight balls debacle, I think he went to the minors, and came back up a few weeks later and even shut us down one game.

I remember that game. The 16 balls in a row was brutal, and Hawk & DJ weren't really joking about it as much as expressing empathy for the guy. Still can't believe nobody from the Royals dugout went out there to calm him down until he walked a guy in.

Garland is set for a huge year.

There is no reason why the Sox shouldn't sweep that series to start the season. They have the advantage in every pitching matchup, and KC doesn't have much offense to speak of.

Most people around here seem to agree that Garland and Clee are set for huge years, I really think Garland is going to have an outstanding season, and have an era in the 3's watch out for Garland this year.

They have Mike Sweeney, and he hits about .630 against us.

Randa also hits about .750 and looks like the second coming of Brooks Robinson around the bag any time the Sox are involved. Too bad he sucks against everyone else in the league.

True, but we all said that before last season, too.

I agree about Garland having a huge year, however I also think that Danny Wright's struggles are over as well. This could be the year where the Sox surprise the whole league again with 90 + wins. Well wishful thinking anyways :smile:
