Look at it this way: We lost two out of three in Tampa Bay the first week in May last year. Yet, somehow, someway, we recovered to win the World Series.

This is why I'm glad we kicked ass on the last homestand. Even if we struggle on the West Coast, we'll still have a good record. We're 14-7. A .667 winning percentage is still damn good.

Washburn is really really good. I often wonder why his ERA is always higher than I think it should be. He looks like a carbon-copy of Buehrle many times. He's quick, goes after guys, rarely throws over 90 and has some really good movement.

I don't feel bad about this loss.

I don't think this loss will linger that long. The opposing pitcher threw a good game against us. A night like this, you shrug off. We just got beat. It isn't like we made a bunch of errors and pissed the game away or anything like that. Tip your cap to Washburn, go get 'em in Anaheim on Friday.

If we had a loss like, say, that first game in Kansas City, THAT would stick in our collective craw.

.667 Ball through the first 1/8th of the schedule! You'll get 40 or 50 games each year where the offense can't get the job done. Buehrle pitched well but hats off to Washburn and the Mariners.

On to Anaheim who will have revenge on their minds.

Meanwhile there the major idiots are calling in tonight during the post game show. Thank God they are not showing up here. :cool:

Good Night Sox fans.

Simply because of jet lag, East Coast and Midwest teams often hit a funk when playing on the West Coast. It's not just the Sox. It evens out, though, when the West Coast teams have to travel East, and they have to travel East a lot more than the Sox have to go out West!

It wasn't long ago that Sox bats routinely went completely flaccid on the West Coast. This time in Seattle, they were just inconsistent, wrapping two poor hitting nights around a big outburst.

I'm not going to worry about a case of the West Coast blahs. I'll be happy with a .500 road trip. As long as the Sox take care of business against KC, Detroit, Minny and Cleveland, they shall win the division.

Washburn was better than usual tonight, I thought they were going to start pounding the **** out of him the second time around, when they started to stack some hits together, Hargrove took him out of the game. Oh well.

The only think I dont like is losing series, but a series win against the Angels will clean this up...go get 'em!

Buehrle wasn't bad either, sleep it off everyone!

I think Game 2 of the ALCS was a monumental game. We were down 0-1 in the series, and we really needed a win before going out on the road. The reason we won that game? Mark Buerhle. All true Sox fans would remember that. The guy must have been a North Sider.

Just a flat, bad night all around.

Not a great start to another West Coast road trip.

I guess I can see losing to the A's or Angels because those are pretty good clubs the past few seasons but to have a 14-28 record in Seattle since 1998?

You gotta do better then that especially since the past few seasons the Mariners have been flat out bad. How do you lose to that lineup???

I trust they'll play better Friday.

Oh just got this off Mark Gonzales' story in the Tribune on the game. I didn't realize the West Coast was this bad! "and they've won only one series on the West Coast since 2001 - taking two of three games from the Mariners at Safeco last August."

:o:

Obviously he means in the 'regular' season.

Watching this series I just find myself surprised by how poor Seattle has done against everyone who isn't us. I mean they have a pretty good lineup (Ichiro, Beltre, Sexton, Everett, Ibanez, Lopez), some decent starters and a bullpen that seems to have an endless supply of guys who can bring it at 96 MPH or so. How the hell does this team end up getting the snot beat out of them by all non White Sox teams in the AL?

Seemed to me like our batters were impatient early. Then, when they settled down and started to get something going, Crede got robbed of a big hit - that really hurt.

I can't take anything away from Washburn - he pitched great. Mark didn't seem to have his best stuff either, but still pitched well enough to keep us in the game - what more can you ask for?

Oh well, get those halos!

They never got Washburn out of his rhythm.They needed to slow him down a little bit just like Hawk said around the fifth inning. I was thinking that after he mowed them down after the first two.

14-7. Best record in the AL. No worries.

Seattle are not pushovers by any stretch. That's an above average team and they were at home. Still, the Sox are much better and should beat them in a series, but that's baseball--you have off days. It's not that we lost a series to a lesser team. The only thing that bugs me is we still can't ****ing win on the **** **** west ****ing coast.

Disappointing loss, but, like others here, I'm not panicking. It was 1 game. They're 14-7. I still have World Series euphoria. Go take 2 of 3 from the Angels. On a side note, even though it was a loss, I still had to laugh during the game. Did anyone else hear the segment between Hawk & DJ about turkeys, and how once when they were golfing in Kansas City on an off day, a bunch of them walked across the course. DJ said that from a distance, he didn't know what they were, he just saw something that was fat, round and had 2 legs. He then said that before being told what they were, he had to "change his diaper". This was followed by an awkward silence from Hawk.:rolling:

I think that's the big difference between this one and other games where people get more bent out of shape. This team has been so good the last season and 1/8 that almost every loss seems to be the result of something the Sox could have avoided, either a play or a decision by Ozzie that went awry. Last night we simply got beat. Nothing really to second-guess, no changes that could have been made. It's not like Monday where you could argue whether Ozzie should have kept Garland in one inning too many. Or any of the days with the odd lineups. We played a straightforward game and lost. The fact that this sort of thing is so rare these days is a wonderful thing since it means we really are in just about every game until the end.

At this point the Japanese catcher scares no one because he is still an unknown. Beltre has been a bust in the A.L. since his fluke Dodger season.
To me it's Ichiro, Everett and Ibanez.

Not exactly the 27 Yankees is it? I mean someone is beating the snot out of these guys based on their record.

They have essentially the same record as the Minnesota Twins.

Carl got a little revenge in this series as his hit in the first game ended up being the run that beat us and then again last nite he hurt us.

We have lost series to KC and Seattle and the Indians this year. The indians I can understand but KC and Seattle? No big deal- just kind of weird.

The old refrain was that the sox would win 13-3 and then lose 2-1 the next day. That was always blamed on no small ball but hey it happens no matter what size ball you play.

Burls sharpness was not there but after reading about the questech thread maybe he was sharper than the ump allowed. I had a bad feeling about this series when I saw Wendlestat was the crew chief. Iassonga and him are two of the worst.

I also hate following the tigers into seattle and LA cuz as luck would have it they face the bottom three pitchers in both places while we get the top three. Santana,Escobar, will be tough like washburn.

I think the Sox have THREE stoppers right now. Seriously - Buehrle, Jose, and Vazquez are all pitching like aces/stoppers. If they can keep that up all season and into October - the Sox's chances are good.
