They've got a run differential of -7 on the road.

So, they are +107 at home.

Who's the O's closer? How tight should my sphincter be for the ninth?


Jim Johnson. Not great, not bad; certainly not Armando or Francisco. I think you can count on the Birds winning this one. Although, the lineup somewhat favors Texas, who have Cruz, Murphy, and Pudge due up.

I had my head turned and I thought I heard Grace say that JASON Johnson was the closer and I nearly fell out of my chair.

There's your ballgame. Rangers go down 1-2-3 in the 9th. Stay tuned for Detroit at Tampa Bay at 7:08 ET tonight.

Losing to the White Sox sucks, but losing to the O's REALLY sucks. That Ranger line up today was not so strong.

Thank GOD. That actually didn't even look that hard.
I just checked tomorrow's matchups in Baltimore. I think an argument can be made that the O's could be favored in that one. Neither pitcher looks very good, but Guthrie is at home, and Holland is the one the Jays lit up like a little leaguer his last time out.

It's a loser's game we're playing here -- waiting for others to lose.

Well yeah, but so was 2007. Remember Paps in a jock dancing on the field after the Yankees choked?

Meh.

We're only allowed to watch the scoreboard after a win to see if the other guy loses?

I do. And I'm not making any predictions from here. Truth of the matter is that, assuming the Sox get in, the only thing that matters is how they and others play from early Oct on.

That said, the inability of this team to put it all together and sustain success is immensely frustrating. If they get caught and then passed by Tex or Tampa while playing like this, they'll deserve their fate.

Why is that? They just swept Colorado, the team they're contending against. The Red Sox couldn't sweep a contending team right now if they faced their AAA affiliate. The Giants actually have competent and Major League quality pitching, too.

I was thinking back to the start of the year when the Red Sox were considered as good as anybody and optimistic Giants followers were hoping for .500.

If the Giants get in they could be very dangerous, especially in the first round. The offense is pretty weak, but they start a series with Tim Lincecum and Matt Cain. And there's still always Randy Johnson lurking. I know Johnson is old and has been hurt, and might very well not start again this year or in the playoffs, but I wouldn't quite bank on that. Its still Randy freakin' Johnson.

Let's hope we don't get the "Sunday" rest lineup on Sunday.

Torn rotator cuff at 45 years old = End of the line. I don't care what Johnson says. If he comes back at all, ever, it's an absolute goddamn miracle of modern medical science.

Angels win.

Tampa gives it up in what looks like a complete nutpunch loss to the Tigers 8 -6. Shields left in to give up 6 runs, and the bullpen (beaten up in the RS series perhaps?) coughing it up (Balfour...yes!!) beyond that. They had a 6-3 lead going into the 7th....ouch.
