Not the guy you want to see to get over a streak, last 2 times I saw him pitch against us in 2005 and this year, he has owned us....but a W tonight over a pitcher who has your number could just be what we need....Come on boys!

He has a 2.08 ERA since June 1st. He's due for an asskicking.

Erik Bedard is hittable like every pitcher. Hopefully, tonight is our night for once.

Facing him is like facing anyone right now. It doesn't matter who it is, it's been hard for us to win.
Now's the time to change that.

Sometimes facing a tough opponent forces you to play better.

And considering some of the crappy pitchers we've lost to lately, who cares who's pitching? Let's just get out there and kick his ass. :smile:

I hope we play well tonight.

at this point, i just want to see a good game. It doesn't NEED to be a win, tho that would be very nice, i think that a competitive game would get this team back on track.

Well, we didn't get to face the infamous Rodrigo Lopez, and he went out last night and did a fairly recent job against the Royals.

We don't want to get to closer Chris Ray either...that guy has something like 26 out of 27 saves going this year.

We just need to play up to our capabilities. If we do that, no problem. Will see if Ozzie puts out every righty we got tonight or if he goes with the regulars.

Does anyone remember the last time the Sox beat a big-name pitcher that turned in a quality start? This team has feasted on some really bad pitching and had some close games with some pretty mediocre pitchers, but I can't remember the last time we grinded out a 1-0 or 2-1 game against a big name considered to be on top of their game at the time.

It's gut-check time. If the team can't beat the big dogs, they don't deserve to go to the playoffs. Bring him on. A quality win could work wonders.

SLG is a lot higher for RH batters. If Ozzie is ever going to move Thome down in the order, tonight is as good a time as any.

I watched Bedard pitch all last season.. he is nothing special. We're the kind of team right now that would make Kris Benson look like the Jesus, but not Bedard.

Paulie, Jimmy, & Jermaine told Kenny they didn't need any help to win. I assume they meant to win against good teams and good pitchers, not just the Roayals pitching their fifth starter.

So today they face a mediocre team throwing their best starter at them. It's time for them cash the check they wrote with their mouths. Let's see if they are indeed playoff material.

Watch closely, KW. There's still three days left.

They were doing well against Santana (well, 1-0, anyway) before Jose threw one bad pitch.

But yeah...it doesn't matter who's pitching...let's take a game, and then a series.

My morning paper lists the odds as a "pickem" game. (Note:don't gamble.)

The Sox will hoist Erik on his own Bedard

I don't know. I think that this guy finally "figured it out" when he added a changeup to his arsenal. Now he's got 3 quality pitches that he can throw for strikes.

I think Bedard is going to be good for a while, much like Jon Garland, who seems to be another guy that has "figured it out".

I just want to see the Sox take better approaches at the plate tonight, especially against another one of these tough lefties they tend to struggle against. Particularly an opposite field approach.

They weren't doing so well against Bonderman in terms of hits, but they were leading Bonderman until the Vazquez implosion against Monroe in the 6th.

They weren't dominated by Randy Johnson either...the relief pitching let Contreras down in that game, I think Thornton was the main culprit.
