Alright, Orioles times. I love it when the Sox play the Os @ Baltimore because:

1. They're bad, so the Sox tend to play well against them
2. I get to watch the games on MASN, so I can use my laptop during the game instead of my wife's tiny little Acer
3. I get to annoy my coworkers today and, hopefully, on Monday
4. Depending on how much of my leash my wife releases, I might be going to the game on Sunday
5. MASN has a commercial with a very attractive woman. I couldn't find her picture on the web, but this is probably close enough:



Gotcha!

Ditto your whole post, except I'm hoping to get my leash released for tonight's game.

Also, Jim Palmer makes me laugh and the baby Jeuus cry.

On a Friday?

Anyhoo, really good matchups all weekend. Even the Dice-K game we get Berken. If Clay is on tonight things would seem to look strong for a sweep. Hopefully there will be another sea of red this weekend.

The Orioles are usually in quit mode at this point in the season. No reason this series can't be an easy sweep. Nobody puts less effort into late season games than Baltimore.

This series would be a great opportunity to roll out the B squad to see what they can do. There's no way the Sox lose more than one game even with a AAAA lineup.

Also, Gordon Edes and the Angels can cry me a fucking river.

It's unbelievable that we're still hearing about the Angels and their woe-is-me attitude a couple days after the fact. Yes, it was a borderline pitch that probably should have been called a strike. How about calling out your left fielder for jogging to what was a pretty routine fly ball for a lot of LF? How about Fuentes allowing that situation to occur in the first place? There seems to be very little accountability there in the way they're publicly handling it, and it's annoying.

Talking about a sweep of Baltimore is fun, but as the Wolf put it, "let's not start sucking each other's dicks quite yet." The Sox still have to play the games. And as bad as the O's may or may not be, the last time folks got cocky around here was just before the White Sox series. And we all remember how that turned out.
The matchups definitely look good. Guthrie tonight is the best Baltimore puts out there in this series by a wide margin. And while he isn't absolutely godawful, he ain't that special either. He has his moments- he shut down the Rangers on the road, and the Yankees right before that at home. Yet he also gave up five last time out against New York at the bidet in five plus innings. So he can go either way. But I figure he'll go five plus and give up four to five runs.
Which will be more than enough for Buchholz, who even at his worst could manage to keep these guys to four runs in five innings. although I think we get the great Buchholz tonight, and he'll go seven, seven plus, two runs at most.
Even if Buchholz the great doesn't show up and instead he puts on a semi shitshow tonight, all the Sox need is a inning or two alone with that Baltimore bullpen. I can see the Sox easily making up two or three runs against that pen.
Everything on paper about this game, this entire series, even, seem to be in the Sox favor. But still, they gotta play the games.

Annoying? No way. It is beautiful.

The only thing that bothers me in that article is that Torii Hunter is trying to get the Angels to take responsibility for their own failures. As long as Scioscia has his head up his ass and keeps whining, he gives the Sox a huge advantage.

Lots of bad karma going on already with the overconfidence. Look at what the A's did to the Rangers, and in Texas no less. A's 19, Texas 1, cumulative.

I, on the other hand, enjoy it very much. If (IF) the Sox bounce the Angels out of the playoffs again, it will be interesting to see exactly what shade of red Scioscia's face turns. I would have to think that that would put him only 1-2 years away from the Cleveland/Hargrove treatment.

I say, let's show Jason how much we respect what he's done for us by picking up his 2010 option for 5 Mil, give him a job as a coach, bullpen, stat guy, whatever. Then after next year let them negotiate a contract for whatever position he's in. And then bring up Wagner for next year, Tek will be around to offer what he can. Then VMart can catch 60% of the games next year while Wagner gets broken in with about 40%. Save our prospects for King Felix or AGon.

Sorry, I know it's the wrong thead but they won't let me post there.
