Very worried about our situation right now. Obviously, it's nice to have a 6 game lead (7 over the Jays), but they are red hot. Throw in the fact that they've owned us this year, have 7 games left with us, and the rest of their schedule is cake, and they could be a problem. Now I hear Halladay will pitch on short rest on Sunday, so obviously they smell blood. We've gotta do no worse than win tonight, and split with them this weekend. Then we have to go no worse than 3-3 next week in Tampa and Toronto.

Tell me it's gonna be okay, Lorf. unsure.gif

Sure do hope it will be. We won the first game, lost the first of the double header, and as of now are down 5-4 in the bottom of the 8th in the second game. I'm not too worried about Sunday because that games a coin flip...Lester vs. Halladay. We seriously can't get swept in this doubleheader while the Rays sweep theirs against the Yankees as well. I wish I could just say it'll be okay but...oh hey, leadoff double in the 8th.

I'm not too worried about the Jays but crazier things have happened. Honestly, I'm a lot more worried about going down to the Trop next week.

Well, a huge win tonight, Lorf. Truthfully, I've already resigned myself to the fact that we're not going to win the division. I think those two wins Tampa got against us this week will put them over the top. I'm just worried about getting in. This last week has really been a roller coaster ride. Winning the first game vs. the Rays, then getting within 3 outs of first place only to have Papelbon cough it up, then the completely frustrating 14-inning loss, then winning last night and feeling like everything was gonna be okay, then trailing in the 8th tonight after dropping the first game and realizing we get the best pitcher in baseball tomorrow. With this win tonight, one win apiece in Tampa and Toronto will get us home in reasonable shape (Minny has 4 games left with Tampa, and 3 with the Chisox). Of course, I'll take more than that if we can get it.

One game out again. Call it mindless pride but we need to win the division. I understand the toll a pennant race can take but we're so close to the Rays and a win would let us face the Central champs. Not facing the Angels is vital in my mind. They've been our whipping boys in the past but I'd rather let the Rays battle them and tire each other out. Within spitting distance of best record too which is pivotal with Fenway Park. No matter what, it's crunch time. Can't let those Sunshine Kids push us around.
