OK... I know there are a lot of concerns right now and by Thursday, those concerns will turn to either a lot of joy or disaster... but we all need to take a deep breath and enjoy today... Hey, we could be one of these teams right now:

ST. LOUIS CARDINALS= just lost 2 of 3 to the Cubs (making them 3-6 against the North Siders this season) and with their ace already on the DL are about to lose the game's best hitter for a while....

HOUSTON ASTROS= Roy Oswalt suffers back spasms and Andy Pettite has been brutal as they get swept AT HOME by the Reds

NEW YORK YANKEES= Lost 2 of 3 at BALTIMORE while losing Gary Sheffield possibly for the season and DEREK JETER possibly for a long time with HIDEKI MATSUI already done for another 2 months...

AL CENTRAL= Tigers have lost 6 of 8... Indians just got spanked in 2 of 3 by the ANGELS

and it may be a bit of a stretch but.... TEXAS RANGERS= while taking 2 of 3 from the Sox, they sure did not look very impressive for a division leader... their pitching remains suspect and their hitting can be held in check by good pitching (i.e. normal Sox/playoff pitching)

So, enjoy today... it could be a lot worse.... :)

All good teams go through a bad stretch. I'm not worried.

We're having our dead ball period earlier this year. It's a nice thought that overall the team's underachieved and still has one of the top records in baseball. And if it wasn't for the Tigers having a freakishly hot start, we'd be in first and there'd be no worries at all.

We win the next two series against our division rivals and it's all good once again. Now's the time for Konerko, Buehrle, Thome, and Dye to show some leadership and go get the Tigers and Indians.

Go SOX!!!

Maybe I'm in the minority, but I sure was impressed with Texas' pitching, with the excpetion of Saturday's starter. We didn't even see Millwood, yet the Rangers shut down the bats for basically all but one inning.

I'm sure the Rangers pitchers were very happy not having to face Thome.

Did the Sox score a run off their bullpen?
They did a good job shutting down the Sox.

Could the Sox score a run off the Royals right now? Might be tough.

Any team could "shut down" the Sox offense right now.

It's true things could be a lot worse right now. We could be even further back in the division.

We're just spoiled. Teams go through tough stretches. They'll be fiiiine.

Just remember, the Sox haven't even played to their potential yet.
