Damn straight, and by this time next week I expect Tigers to lead by only three games. Tiggers go on to Boston after they're finished here while we get the Royals for four. Granted, the Red Sox have been struggling lately but they're always tough at home and they did beat up on the Tigers earlier this season. I predict Boston wins the series while we sweep KC (completeing another patented White Sox 8 game winning streak) cutting our deficit to three games.

08-11-2006, 10:17 AM
I say we knock Verlander and Rogers around, but the Sox always make rookie pitchers that they've never seen before look like the next coming of Cy Young, so for some odd reason I am less confident against Miner than the other two. And Buehrle gets off the schnide tomorrow :bandance:
Lets bring out the

And if we don't, then what? I am not counting on the Tigers to shrivel up and die. The sox are 8'5 back, with ten more games against the Detroit and two game where the Tigers have open dates. To win the division, the Sox would have to will all of those and match the Tigers game for game elsewhere.

We're first for the wild card. Just concentrate on winning from here on. A collapse on the part of the tiger is desirable, but I don't see that happening.

Focus on the W, keeping the Tigers in view helps us cinch the WC. But, like I said in another thread - the goal is the division. The WC is not the goal; it is a safety net.

We have to win this game to set a tone, and send a message to the Tigers. WE ARE STILL THE WORLD CHAMPS, and you have to come through us to take what we have. Jose needs to go out and dominate like he was at the beginning of the year. If he does that, I think Mark and Freddy will feed of that and then I believe we have a great chance to sweep. So here's to THE BRONZE TITAN:gulp: do your thing!!!

Just a small town girl
Livin' in a lonely world
She took the midnight train going anywhere
Just a city boy
Born and raised in south CHICAGO
He took the midnight train going anywhere
A singer in a smoky room
The smell of wine and cheap perfume
For a smile they can share the night
It goes on and on and on and on
Strangers waiting
Up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching in the night
Streetlight people
Living just to find emotion
Hiding somewhere in the night
Working hard to get my fill
Everybody wants a thrill
Payin' anything to roll the dice
Just one more time
Some will win, some will lose
Some are born to sing the blues
Oh, the movie never ends
It goes on and on and on and on
Strangers waiting
Up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching in the night
Streetlight people
Living just to find emotion
Hiding somewhere in the night
Don't stop believin'
Hold on to that feelin'
Streetlight people
Don't stop believin'
Hold on
Streetlight people
Don't stop believin'
Hold on to that feelin'
Streetlight people

I think a sweep in either direction this series would indeed tell the Sox which direction they are headed. If the Sox sweep, get ready for a tight race (if not a Tiger collapse) and the White Sox chances of taking the division to skyrocket. If the Tigers were to somehow sweep, I do think it would relegate the Sox to the WC chase. Of course thats not set in stone, but close to it IMO.

Back to the topic, so far so good. Way to go Jose! I'd love to see a sweep, but 2 out of 3 would be good too. 7-3 against the Tigers so far.

On second thought, we need the sweep. 2 out of 3 just gains a game in the standings.

It is. All I needed to see was brilliant pitching. Jose was....well...just that Friday and Mark was not there, but he's getting back into the groove a little.

I believe our guys will definately make a run...we had the 3rd best record with the 9th best (in stats) pitching....even though we all know this staff is better than that.

Come on damnit...lets get that sweep boys...We sweep...then tell Detroit (as if they WONT KNOW already)..that it's GAME ON.....GAME ON.
