I can't find one anywhere. I'm betting Colon is withheld, but I wonder if they have the spots to make such a move (like the two DL spots we have). Anyone know for sure?

Maybe it's in this guy's sleeve?

I have been wondering the same thing... is there a set time it has to be in by?

I'm pretty sure the roster had to be in by 10am. But that's not to say that it will be announced publicly at that time.

yeah ozzie said the roster isn't due til the morning of the game, and Scioscia said he would work on it on the plane ride over. I doubt we'll find out til game time.

I'm sure that Bud gave him a little extra time due to the tough schedule.

Dan Patrick just reported that Colon's out for the series and Washburn looks like a go for gm2.

B&B also just said Colon is out for the series. Said they heard it from George Offman.

Put me on the record as saying this isn't exactly going to help the Angels.

This is no reason for anyone to relax. They've still got some solid arms they'll throw up against us and our hitters have a lot of work to do.

Couldn't we have used that the last week or two of the season? :wink:

Wow, that's bigtime news.
Washburn in game 2 huh?

So in game 1 we're facing a guy on 3 days rest, and in game 2 we're facing a guy who was so sick over the weekend he couldn't even travel with the team?

Who do we face in game 3? Nolan Ryan? Ronnie Woo Woo? Morgana The Kissing Bandit?

I'm waiting for the media to start making excuses and feeling sorry for Orange County. Perhaps they need to be reminded that the Sox have been missing their number three hitter for most of the season. I feel badly for Colon himself, as I'm sure he wants to be out there with his teammates, but the Sox have been getting it done all season long without their best offensive player. Baseball is still a team sport. Orange County is good enough to win this series in spite of Colon's absence.

Maybe they should push back the start of the ALCS a few weeks to give him time to recover.

I would guess a fully rested Lackey in Game 3 and Santana on Saturday.

The really good thing about this is that one of the the things I trust Ozzie can do well is keep the players from being too confident concerning the Angels' difficult spot.

We have a serious pitching advantage now...but they need not think about it. Go play, and if we kill them, all the more fun.

"Word on the street" is Washburn's improved to the point that they think he's the guy, but likely they won't know until tomorrow.

And if Washburn can't go it would probably be Kevin Gregg, who has started 2 or 3 games this year.

You know what...if we do win this thing, ******* fans & throughout the media on shows like (forgive me for watching) Around The Horn where 3 of 4 of them say its soooo unfair for the Angels blah blah and Selig shoulve done something about it! I can see the headline if we win tonight.

Sox beat half of Halo team in game 1- Selig paid off for not delaying series?

I assume this means that Santana is definitely starting game four. He shut us down when he faced us earlier this year. Hopefully, our hitters learned some things against him the first time.

I fear Santana more than Colon, honestly. The bigger issue is Washburn. If he's healthy, he can be a force - especially on the road. If not, they go way into the bin for Kevin Gregg, who is terrible.

ESPN is already starting the book on 'the road weary' Angels and then factored in Colon being out, putting the focus on his numbers this year and him being a Cy Young candidate

This is a win-win for ESPN, they will make it look like it will be easy for us, so if the Sox win, they were right, and if the Angels win, they can go on and on how honorably they were. Whatever, I just hope we don't take them too lightly

I find this travel issue as sweet poetic justice! Remember earlier in the year when we were in a similar situation when they refused to schedule a day game to help us out and we had to travel for a game in a central or eastern time zone the next day. Maybe different circumstances, but karma in my eyes!

I would say this is a wash after last night's game. Santana seems to be OK in pressure situations. I'd think Colon is a better pitcher obviously, but Santana is a rookie and I don't need to mention what we do against rookies.

If we smart ball him to death, I think we can tag him early.

I thought that hex only went to rookies we hadn't seen before; we've faced Santana, and that was a terrible game, IIRC.

I thought that hex only applied to crappy rookies. Santana isn't crappy, so we should be fine.

Sometimes its the little things that make the difference. In the case of Colon not playing, calling him a little thing would be inaccurate - he's ENORMOUS.

I'm with you there on Santana. But, I still would rather face him as a starter once, maybe twice than have to face him regularly out of the bullpen. For me, Santana and Lackey scare me more than Guerrero, Anderson, Figgins, and KRod combined.

VivaOzzie
10-11-2005, 06:55 PM
The arms that scare me the most are Molina's and Guerrero's. Guerrero when going first to third, and Molina when stealing. I want to stay aggresive and test them, but man they seem solid.
