If you look at Detroits Schedule through out August it is very tough. THey have to face the same teams we are slumping agaisnt now. Lets hope the August help melts their pitching arms.

Counting on Detroit to lose is not a good strategy, IMHO.

The Tigers have proven themselves to be a battle-tested team.

The Sox had better not "assume" the Tigers will go into the tank. The Sox players better just play their hearts out and try to win every single day. We Sox fans also better not count on the Tigers to crap out, either.

I hope the Twins have a rough schedule in August as well.

None of this means a thing if the Sox don't start winning their own games, of course.

we shouldnt have to rely on the tigers to constantly lose for us to make it to the playoffs.

If the Sox are thinking about Detroit losing to get to the postseason, I personally would start thanking about the next season. Myself, and many more before me, have thought that tea team mindset (often described as team chemistry) is more important than the simple amount of talent. The bases are loaded, and Uribe doesn't hit the sf. Uribe has the talent to have done this. While this didn't always happen (but many time did) in 2005, plays like this one seemed to happen more frequently last year. Was it a fluke or was it a product of attitude of the 2005 team?
During the games I have been able to watch in Denver, I would say that the team doesn't have the attitude it had last year or even before the all-star break. This next week will be a true test for Ozzie, for the attitude he helped create for last years team and seemingly before the allstar break is not there for the last couple of games. The Sox will play better this season either way, but the champion attitude need to be re-enforced.

But I wouldn't bet on it. The Sox are on pace to win 99. If they do that, I like their chances.

Exactly.
