and only 158 more games to go.

1998 Yankees started off 0-3 and 1-4 in their first 5 games only to win 125 games and a World Championship....just saying.

Can't explain it but too early to worry (much).

Moving Carl Crawford to the 7 hole makes no sense to me. Sounds like a knee jerk reaction. Never been a fan of Terry Francona though.

yeah I know that. they'll probably get it together, I just personally think it's funny how much hype they got and how much trash red sox fans talked before the season.

I'm sorry but I just can't see their pitching staff taking them very far. I think the Jays/Yankees battle for #1/#2, and Orioles/Sox battle for #3/#4 in the AL East.

I could be completely wrong and their bats could break out(they will, too much talent on offense to stay like this), but even then their pitching just isn't that impressive.

Looks like their pitching staff finally woke up. Don't know what happened with Dice K but that guy is playing lights out at the moment.

What is up with Carl Crawford by the way? Batting .135 at the moment...

On this board?

Not sure I agree, though, that the Sox are fighting it out for 4th place in the AL East in 4 months... Not with 3 legitimate CY candidates (providing Beckett continues to pitch like he did 2 years ago, and not like he did last year)... I don't see the holes in the rotation you do, regardless of their subpar start...

What's scary is this offense hasn't even woken up completely. Still waiting for Crawford to go beast mode.

13-0, nobody out in the 6th... Crawford 4-4 and a triple shy of the cycle...

Is there a mercy rule??

If the mercy rule existed in professional baseball, they would have taken my team away.







So no.

Well, this will probably be my last visit to the Huddle in a while (long story but nothing bad) so I want to go out with a :party: over the Red Sox turnaround, 1st place & most importantly 8-1 against the evil empire!! When I have had a chance, they have been fun to watch.

:seeya:

Bye Bye Terry. Thank you for everything in the past but it is time to move on. No hard feelings as I put more of the blame for the collapse on the players & not you. I've actually been kind of wanting this for the previous two seasons.
