Not much to hang your hat on lately , but Todd Jones gives some kudos to the Sox. :

Although both teams are having disappointing years, Phillies reliever Todd Jones gave the Sox credit for carrying on without Magglio Ordonez and Frank Thomas, while also noting that Carlos Lee (groin) and Paul Konerko were out of the lineup Monday. "If their sluggers hadn't been out, they'd have been a dang good team,'' Jones said. "Their four big guys are out and they drop 9 on us.''

Nice to get some props. It really seems to me that the reserves have been scoring at a decent clip. If we could ever get a starter to give up less the 4-8 runs in the first few innings I think it would be a completely different situation.
