of Kansas City. Well, who cares, as long as we're improving our record towards the .500 mark, then we'll start getting pissed every time KC wins. Besides, they were playing the indians.

K.C. won't be there at the very end, IMO. Good team, definitely above expectations, but doesn't have the "horses" to last 162.

Crap, I keep forgetting about those pesky Royals. I was like, "41/2 games back from the division lead now."

I guess it's 51/2...when the heck are the Royals gonna collapse again? :?:

I think it might be better if the sox end up fighting the Royals, because then the race comes down between these two teams directly. 7 of the last 10 games for the sox are against the Royals, so the sox could come back from 2 or 3 down pretty late realistically. The big problem is that those other 3 games are against the Yankees, which could mean that the sox could ruin the yankees season or vice versa

They just got a second win by playing the Twinkies for 4 in KC. Then they have been playing the Cleveland. They have been killing the division and that is how come they are in first...

Great even though I wasn't around then I am getting flash back of 1967 (I think).

Gotta be happy with the way things are going, considering how badly the Sox have played.
With the club getting the smelling salts at Wrigley last week, I'm starting to get deja vu. Could be '83 all over again!

We need to turn all the ugly losses into ugly wins.

Does anybody know what the Sox record was at this point in '83?

I am with you...smelling the '83 thing. We definitely have the pitching to do it. Does the hitting keep improving? Does the management get us some bullpen help? These things will probably decide it for us. We don't have a problem with KC, in my opinion. Minnesota is the team we have a mental thing with. KC we can handle. Yes, they did smack us in the mouth to open the year, but we came right back and stuck it to them. Not a big deal.
As far as the Yank-mees go, they're not a shell of the old Yanks teams. All of that talent, and no cement. That's why I always thought that losing Brosius, Paul Oneil and Tino would hurt them. Those were character guys, and now the Yanks have a mish mash of studs that don't play well together.

One thing you have to say about them:
They've never stopped hitting.

The pitching has failed them in stretches but the bats have been alive.

remarkable numbers
They are 15-5, 120 runs scored, 71 runs given up in their last 20.

That's an rpg avg of 10 & and an rpa of nearly 4.

I guess a positive is that in their upcoming series, I would think that the Cardinals are more likely to beat the Royals, than the Brewers beating the Twins.
