This and that:
I found it very ironic that Peavy is quoted in the papers today talking about how he likes the Sox chances in the post season the day after they drop out of first, have lost seven of eight and are free falling. He gets his chance tonight to beat someone not named Minnesota at least...
The Sox are 8-for-65 over the last nine games with runners in scoring position. When the heat's on they can't get it done apparently.
I was contacted last night by reporter Michael Puente of WBEZ radio (Chicago NPR) he is interviewing me this morning as part of a piece they are doing on the Sox attendance issues. It's cool that he asked but I wish it was for a more positive subject.
Nothing to do but play it out and hope for the best. The Sox put themselves in this position, now they not only have to win, but Detroit has to lose.
Scherzer by the way is having his start skipped tomorrow according to ESPN.com
