The Twins and Royals are on a tough Left Coast swing, while we are playing easy teams. Tonight, it looks like we'll gain on both of them. Every little bit helps. Now if Burly-mon will be the Burly-mon we adore and not Mark "Meet Me in St. Louis" Buehrle...

Meanwhile, yet another bench-clearing incident involving the Twins tonight.

The Twins are approaching ridiculous-level with this bench clearing stuff. Twice in that game tonight benches cleared to stand around, no punches. Some of their guys take offense whenever someone looks the wrong way. It's so stupid. Suck it up and play baseball, get pissed when it matters. Sheesh!

I was thinking the same thing Viva. Unfortuneately it is just a temporary aid. June is a brutal month for the Sox and I do not expect to come out of it within 7 games of first place.

This division is just ripe for the plucking if the Sox would just WAKE UP!

4+1/2 out playing like crap. Reminds me of '83 a little, when they were slow out of the gate. If only!

That's the problem. The Sox should have a lead on the division right now. The first 22 games were a piece of cake and the Sox walk out 2 games over .500. Now comes two easy weeks, but nothing for this team ever goes easily. After that is a tough June where the Sox wil inevitable disappoint yet again.

The Sox rarely do what's expected of them. They just don't have the mental toughness necessary to contend right now. The offense shows up once a week, and the pitching is mediocre unless Colon or Loaiza is on the mound. Unless they somehow manage to run off eight or nine wins in a row, I don't think they're going to overtake Kansas City or Minnesota. Every time it looks like they're about to start a winning streak, something happens that puts them back at square one.

Sounds a lot like someone's personality. Um...Jerry Manuel?

About when did the '83 Sox turn it around. I knew they started slow but when did things start changing??

Valpo If I remember correctly it wasn't until after memorial day did that team catch fire. They looked alot like this team, just brutal, and all of a sudden they went off.
