Exactly what the title of the thread states. Offense, defenense...and HOLY CRAP THE BULLPEN!!! Sure our hitters could be a little more clutch (Bases loaded 1 out, only 1 run scores, ETC). I know our season is over, however, I want the Sox to end with a WINNING record.

GO SOX!!! YEEEEESSSS!!!! KEEP IT UP BOYS!!!!! :D:

Great job, Haeger.

Could have been a sweep, but 2/3 in the toughest park for road teams isn't bad.

Charlie Haeger is our Savior in the bullpen!!!! Great job by him since getting called up. thrown strikes and has been able to get outs. I love it.

Shoulda' been a sweep, but at least we found one bullpen guy who can get outs - Charlie "I can't throw 55" Haeger AKA Mr. Popup.

I'll take it...:supernana:

Shoulda swept 'em. Buehrle pitched well, got him some run support. These day games during the week gotta go. This whole working thing...oh well, I'll watch the replay tonight.

Let's go get Boston.

Wow. Didn't see this coming. I thought we were going to get massacred at Jacobs Field after the debacle against the Orioles over the weekend.

Dare to dream that things pan out as they are currently for Owens & Haeger. That would go a long long way to making next year a bounceback year. If Owens is a legit leadoff guy and Haeger can be the RH setup counterpart to Thornton, you suddenly need 1 OF (the other slot going to Anderson/Sweeney), SS, 2B (possibly resign Iguchi), and 1-2 RPs (behind Jenks-Thornton-Haeger-Logan).

Regardless, nice work team! Now let's see Kenny extract something useful for Dye!

BINGO!!! That's what I've been hoping for. Haeger is the potential "one man solution" to our bullpen woes.
He can pitch to lefties and righties, so no more need for match ups, burning all of our few reliable relief pitchers in the same game.
He can pitch every day, and even more than just to a few batters.
He's cheap.
He's a nice "change of pace" from all of the hard throwers.
And best of all, he won't be a free agent for 5 more years.

Beating the INdians is always a delight.

For all of the yak about Shapiro and the young Tribe talent, they have yet to see postseason in this era. Hopefully it doesn't start this year and they sit their rears at home.

Well, don't get too excited. He's not going to be lights out everyday because you just don't get that from a knuckleballer. We still need someone to step up.

Buerhle v Cle = win

Gotta love the Sox, should've swept, after they looked horrible in that Baltimore debacle. Probably'll put up a good fight against Boston too.

Buehrle hadn't picked up a win against Cleveland since July of 2005.

Chicago, way out of the playoff picture and playing mostly for pride, improved to 3-4 on a season-long, 11-game road trip that will resume Thursday in Boston.It stings y'all, it stings.

Their starting pitching has never been good enough after Sabathia to do anything. I don't see that changing soon.

I was listening to the game on the radio and the Score went to commercials during Paulie's ab in the 4th.
By the time the Score got the game back on the Sox scored 3 runs.:bandance:

Hopefully Comcast Sports Net will replay the game tonight.......a stress free Sox game-----ahhhh.

Of course he won't be lights out everyday, but at least he could pitch everyday, and more than an inning.

And we all know that a knuckle baller is a liability with guys on base, especially third. However, I remember both Hoyt Wilhelm, and Wilbur Wood, and it was wonderful.

It would be nice if a few other guys "stepped up", as you put it, but the prospects of that happening seem even more remote, than Haeger being able to repeat this kind of performance.

It's about time Buehrle gets run support and stoppage by the bullpen! It's nice to see the Sox get up and hold them down as well.

Let's continue this in Boston now!

Buehrle gets hit off of 10 times and only one earned run? Against the Indians of all teams? Nice.

That loss yesterday might cost us big time in late September.

I didn't see the game (work!) and haven't read the thread yet, but when I saw 1 run on ELEVEN hits, I had to check the ESPN play-by-play and see how that happened. Thought Mark might have maybe picked off seven or eight guys, but I see he just scattered the hits pretty nicely.

One thing puzzled me, though. The play-by-play read that in the ninth, Barfield went to second on "fielder indifference." What the hell is that? And who was the fielder?

It's a stolen base that isn't a stolen base.
Up 5-1, our catcher didn't bother making the throw to 2B.
Basically we conceded the taking of 2B to them = Fielder indifference.

Ahh, thanks! I just don't think I've ever seen that wording before. It kind of sounded like Uribe or Iguchi were off picking dandelions or something! :D:

I like to rip the Trib as much as anyone, but I thought their headline was "Buehrle gets by with a little help from his pen" (as in the Beatles)

Too young for the Beatles I guess, but now that I think of it I know the song, my apologies if that's what they meant, I just glanced at it and thought it was a joke to mention the outing as 'getting by'

For all of the yak about Shapiro and the young Tribe talent, they have yet to see postseason in this era. How are you defining "era?" In what "era" did they last make the postseason, and what era are we now in that's different?

ArkanSox

I'm happy for Buehrle. All we can do is take them one at a time and hope that things will eventually get better. Just a thought: Do we really want to unload Dye, if we can sign him at a reasonable price? After all, he is an outfielder (which we need), and he can hit (usually).

Yes, it's better to trade a player a year too early (and it is questionable if 2007 is a year too early) than a year too late.

If the deal is right make the trade and receive major league talent (a must) in return.

The key is to break up the slow as molasses middle of the lineup and infusing the middle with younger and faster ballplayers.

I would guess he's referring to the post-Thome/Lofton/Gonzalez/Ramirez/Alomar/Colon era. They had that huge run of success, finishing first or second from 94-01, then everyone started to disappear. After that everything shifted from that era to the Hafner/Martinez/Sabathia/Sizemore group. Perhaps "generation" might be a better team.
