View Full Version : Coming up Aces

After watching the Sox let a few chances slip by last night I was disappointed to see a dominating pitching gem go to waste.

For whatever reason the Sox couldn't play small ball good enough to win, but then either could Boston . The Red Sox had to rely on the long ball to score all their runs.

I'm not worried about the Sox offense based on one game. Teams get shut down and it wasn't the Sox night. What I really like is the fact that Colon has thrown 2 gems in a row against two of the most potent offenses in MLB. Add Loiaza's gem against the Yankees last week plus a solid bull pen and I like our chances in a short series.

If Buehrle can get back on track tonight the Sox will have 4 solid pitching performances against playoff caliber teams.
