I don't want to be negative or anything, but I've seen it happen when the Sox will have a few games with just a HUGE offensive explosion, then will sort of drift off and go downward. I just hope they don't do that this time, and honestly I don't think they will. They have actually been consistently putting up big numbers and haven't showed any signs of backing down. I just hope they can keep it up so we can at least take two from the series with the Mariners.

The Sox have a GREAT chance, the guy pitching tomorrow has only had 13 starts, and has given up more earned runs than Loaiza.(Loaiza has been in 21 starts.) He's also pitched half the innings that Loaiza has.

Here's the Matchup

Snyder Loaiza
Games 13 21


Wins 1 13


Losses 5 5


ERA 4.54 2.19


I.P 77.1 143.2


Hits Allowed 82 120


Runs Allowed 42 37


Earned Runs Allowed 39 35


Walks 19 33


Strikeouts 37 115

Wild Pitches 4 1

The Sox should just need to put up 3 or 4 runs today, and let Esteban take care of business. But, the x-factor is that this pitcher has never faced the Sox. And we all know what happens when the Sox have never faced a young pitcher before.

Maybe the Sox are so locked in right now, that it won't matter...

I think this is a much better team than we saw earlier in the season. The intensity is there, and they know how to win now. Sit back and enjoy the ride.

I'm worried about that as well. I'm also concerned that JM will, as he so often does after winning the first 2 games of the series, go with the Jr. Varsity line-up tonight (i.e., start Harris, Rowand, etc.). I'm glad to have Loaiza on the bump, but as has been pointed out, the Sox are facing a young pitcher they haven't seen before, and that has been a problem in the past. On the other hand, good Lord this team is raking right now, so who knows?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I do believe the Sox have never faced Snyder before. Isn't that the kiss of death for this team???

Now is an excellent time to do some tinkering. We already won the series so who cares about the third game. It's not like it's a big game or anything.

I think you're right...(cy snyder?). Well, it could be worse, at least it's not a day game.

The Sox have erased that trend of late.

Fact is, we've won this series. The pressure is on KC to try and steal one and save some sort of momentum. We'll be loose and smoke this team again tonight.

Sox should have plenty left... if they don't we are absoluetly screwed in Seattle this weekend, because we ain't getting no off day either!

Well, I wouldn't expect the Sox to duplicate the numbers they have put on the board the last two nights; but with ELo on the mound, a three run bomb by Big Frank should put KC in the bag.

I seem to remember a certain pitcher named Runelvys walking the first four sox he saw in his ML debut last year.

I'm thinking this rule doesn't apply in KC.

Frank has looked bad at the plate during this series. The Sox haven't needed him, but he doesn't appear to be hitting the ball as hard as he was in the Tampa Bay series. That is, at least, the impression I get from the ESPN Gamecast feature.

I think the Sox will win tonight. Although...I'm not working tonight so it's hard to say. If I was working tonight they would definitely win. :smile:
