for the most part I'm overjoyed at how they are playing, Porcello pitched well enough to win that game friday, wright has been unbelievable and offense is great, much better than i thought.   i'll take it, but 31 million for an ERA over 6 isn't gonna cut it, Price has me a bit worried, he better not be hurt

I think we way overspent for Price, I still would have rather had Greinke.

I think Arizona feels the same way right now. Greinke isn't exactly repeating his stellar year out there.

overspending is relative, if he was performing I would be fine, I mean if Porcello pitched last year like he is now noone would have questioned the contract, to me it's all monoply money but if you are gonna spend it you better get something for it.  I have faith he will turn it around and be a decent pitcher but nobody is worth 30 million a year.

 well with the way  bartolo colon can hit and pitch, maybe he is but nobody else tongue


we've seen him a lot lately and they make fun of him so much but in an admirable sort of way. Like his warm up tosses - he just lazily throws it once or twice, then done. He doesn't like to use any unnecessary energy lol2

I think Jamie Moyer was 48 when he retired

I think of him everytime someone hits a pop-up. You could hear him yell "two hands!" loud and clear lol2

it's a good thing the Sox can hit, Bucholz was back to the "other than the homerun and solid double I gave up to lead off inning, I felt pretty good' speech. yeah other than the 4 runs in five innings , with runs in the 1st,2nd and 3rd innings, you pitched well for 2 innings facepalm

Just once I'd like to hear him say, I sucked again tonight 36 , I have to do better than that, everyone else is playing well and I can't be the guy who isn't I have to do better

So the Nats locked up Strasberg - 7 years with deferred money and opt outs of course.

With all the salary deferrals once this run is over they should be hamstrung for a few years. Half of their budget is going to be towards long gone players.

1-1/2 games out of first. I want them to get there if only for a day; just so they can say they climbed over the Mets and Nats to do it.

We're playing the Braves then the Reds so we have a great chance to get all the W's we need this week. Hopefully we'll get the Reds back for that 0-4 they gave us to open the season.

they have been playing great blondie i know it's a long season, but getting off to a good start especially with a young team means alot!!


the sox are "tearing the cover off the ball)

they have like 185 runs scored already this year. I think it was like July before they got that far last year


And we got another good performance from our pitching staff, a six inning stint from Sean O'sullivan, with no walks. gave up a few runs but from a relative nobody it's better than expected.

Maybe he can give a few pointers to Bucholz on how to pitch tongue


what, Sullivan wasn't Irish enough, they had to tack on an O' to it lol2

Buzz about bringing up tommy Joseph is getting louder. He's the guy was got for hunter pence. It looked like a lost trade for us. But he's learning first base and hitting for power. They have to make some kind of move and I don't see a trade happening.

Is that the same o'sullivsn that pitched for us?

I'm pretty sure it is. 3 games 40 runs scored, 48 hits!!!

Oakland is terrible but still, they are supposed to be a major league team, giving up 40 runs and 48 hits in 3 games is unexcusable

now Houston is coming to town for a 4 game stint. I'm worried though, we have the bottom of our staff Price and Bucholz to start the series leg

If we just had a real ace we would be great

They can easily out slug Houston, even with the bottom of the staff pitching.

the way they are hitting they can outslug anybody, it's really nice to see JBJ doing it, Shaw doing it, hell everyone is hitting, tough to beat a team that has 8 strong hitters in the lineup

I can't see this production lasting all year but if they can consistently score runs I'll be happy. for the first time in a long time I am not worried when they get down by a run or two, last year if they gave up a run in the first 2 inning I was like Well there goes that game

much better performance from price, though he was a little shaky in the first 2, he rebounded nicely. and the sox had an off night at the plate and could only manage 11 runs last night. tongue

Yea, but it's just Houston, I'm not too excited yet.

and Tommy Joseph is being promoted; just in time to start against some left handed pitching. Here's hoping that he hits both handed pitchers so we can get some production at 1B. Howard can pitch hit from time to time.

bye Ruf. I was rooting for you but the .170 ave isn't helping your cause

6-1 homestand, 7 games 71 runs 103 hits, more than 10 runs and 14 hits per game and it took heroics in extra innings on saturday and a misplayed ball in the 7th leading to 2 runs on sunday to win the games ?

yes the offense has been PlayStation good, but the pitching over the weekend, and the defense on Sunday was atrocious.

still they keep finding ways to win


I'm looking forward to seeing Erod or kelly...or both in the rotation soon.

and papi is indeed the BEST clutch hitter ever, he single handedly willed them to a win on Saturday, driving in the tying run in the ninth and the winning run in the 11th, not mention a homer earlier in the game.

we didn't complete the sweep of the Reds but we did take the series. The Nats and Mets lost too so we stay 1 freaking game behind for 1st.

We play the Marlins tonight - hopefully we'll just continue to take series.

And I want to climb over those stupid Nats for 1st.

that's all I look for
win 2-3 3-4 even splitting a four gamer is Ok with me if over all you win 58-605 of your games you will have a great season.

as well as the red sox played last week, the frigging orioles kept pace with them

I think we've only lost 2 series this season so far - the first one with the Reds and we went down 1-3 against the 4 games with the Cards.

Madden cracks me up getting his guys to dress up for road trips. Keeps them loose, not that they have anything to be uptight about these days.

I know its stupid to watch the standings and I know we won't be in it all season but I WANT FIRST PLACE AGAIN DAMN IT!
