Be honest. You think it's a little funny.

I don't know but the first Sox/Sox series of the year is in two weeks. That should be fun. And Peavy might be ready by then. Although most likely his first start with us will come sometime in the Aug. 28th to 30th series in New York against the Yankees. Exciting times. Spectacular times, even.

But, yeah, you're tied for the WC at worst and who the fuck knows what can happen between now and the end of September.
My comment was more tongue-in-cheek in response to Hewson's (at least the second part), and I realize that things are far from over, but he does have a point. This is turning out to be eerily like 2006, and while they are still in a decent position, I wouldn't be surprised at this point if they fall away and miss the playoffs altogether.

Exactly... what I've seen recently of this Red Sox team gives me the feeling that they are falling by the wayside...I made the 2006 comment on Friday to my brother-in-law before they went scoreless for the weekend, they just seem to have lost their way. Yes they are tied for the WC currently, but they are not playing well (understatement) while the teams they are battling are clearly playing better ball currently.

And for all that, they're still tied for the WC. They will snap out of it offensively, and you'll have Wakefield back soon which will help. I'll be shocked if you're not in the playoffs, be it as division champs or the wildcard team.

Derek Holland, the Dutch Oven himself, shutting down the (previously) highest scoring team in baseball in their own yard.

I love this team. Almost at a GAF-to-Chisox level.

You sound like a Red Sox fan talking about the Yankees.

Well, the White Sox just claimed Alex Rios off waivers.

Interesting move, and a total salary dump by the Jays, no matter how they try to spin it.

You can't spin that, pure dump. Yet they still have Halladay.

ETA - In fact, they received no compensation at all from the Sox, so, it literally was a salary dump.

Cat has a .317 OBP. Yikes.

It's fun to be a fan of a team with a GM like Kenny Williams. A few weeks back, Kenny came out and said "There is a 99.9% chance that we don't make any moves this year."

Now it's August 10th and we've acquired Peavy and Rios, both of them for next to nothing. Beautiful. Rios is having a down year, but I've been impressed with the guy since he first came up. Talented kid, for sure.

It does make me wonder what Quentin, Podsednik and Dye are thinking right now. We seem to have too many outfielders. In one of the most unlikely turns I can remember, Podsednik has been the MVP of the team of this year. Dye obviously deserves to play everyday. And CQ is just starting to hit the ball hard again. I'm going to look at this 4 should-be-playing-everyday outfielder situation as a good thing. Although I think it looks like Scotty Pods is the odd man out.

I'll say this again, Gaffer, and it's not because of the Rios acquisition....

I really like The Swish. He works the count every at-bat, will give himself up to get a runner over or in....has some pop......his batting avg is not great but his obp is pretty strong....and he seems like a great clubhouse guy.

And, let's all remember NSW lamenting the Yankees not getting one more bullpen arm of quality before the deadline. Yup, they're playing great baseball right now, and Hughes looks good, but mark my words, this is not a playoff bullpen. And I don't want to hear about Joba.

Also, early in the season Swisher was the best pitcher on the Yankees staff.

Neftali!


Glad the Rangers have the day off so they can recuperate from Cool Whip's drunken, dessert topping fueled shenanigans.

That's his nickname, by the way. Cool Whip. We nicknamed the entire roster watching the series this weekend. Don't judge.

Cool Whip had a stumble on his path to Tebow.

He can't look.




Peef, you'll be happy to know we landed on Champion of the Sun for Darren O'Day.

And five homers so far tonight at Yankee Stadium. They're in the 5th. Can we say it's worse than Rangers Ballpark now?

And Tebow did say to his disciples, "Wait until marriage, heathens."
