Well then our guys have to adjust and start swinging at the high ball if they know it will be called a strike.

JM, I think that's asking too much of our players.

I posted a thread earlier today about how I think the Sox coaching staff doesn't prep the players enough as far as "strategy" against the opponent of the day. A good hitting coach today would say, "Hmm, that's a high strike zone today, better adjust your swing accordingly."

Instead, I'm sure we'll see a lot of called third strikes and dazed-looking Sox hitters.

Ray Durham always has that look on his face.
