They hung in the NL West race for a while last year before tailing off in the 2nd half. I wouldn't be surprised if they hung out for a while this year, too.

And it's not just in Coors that they're hitting, either. They've scored 18 sea-level runs just fine this series.


Too bad they lost the first game of the series, in a nail-biter.

I completely agree. While I'm beside myself with joy that we're making this interesting and finally playing great baseball, I'm not celebrating just yet. Call me superstitious, but as soon as we start gloating over our distant second place position, that's when we start losing again. I'd prefer to sit quietly and watch the Yanks shave game after game off that lead. Then on the day we overtake them, I will email all my Sox fan friends and family and say "What do you think of those first place Yankees? Pretty special, huh?"

It's why you focus on winning each 3 or 4 game series. What the Sox do is not within the Yankees' control. If we slowly build to 5 over, 10 over, etc... eventually you don't have to worry about the scoreboard.

I'd love to see improvement from Clippard, continued progress from Clemens, and another solid outing from Moose. Solid starting pitching builds on itself. Then you may see the team putting together some other long winning streaks, and stay away from prolonged losing streaks

I have said since day 1 of the 2007 season, that the division will be won by the yanks or sox during the final two series of the year in late August and mid-september.

One thing to remember. The lead went from 14 1/2 Sox to 7 1/2 about as fast as it went the other way. The Yanks are playing now like Boston was 2-3 weeks ago and vice versa. The Yanks won't play this hot all year and the Sox won't be this cold all year either. There is still a lot to play. But obviously Yankee fans should feel a lot happier now than they did just 10 days ago.

I think even the most staunchest Sox fans would agree the Sox aren't 14 1/2 games better than the Yanks. But that being said 7 1/2 games is still a sizable lead and the Yanks will cool off and the Sox will heat up. It could drop to zero or it could go back up.

Hard to believe that we have cut that deficit just about in half.

On Wednesday, May 29th we had just lost that 3-2 game in Toronto with Aaron Hill stealing home. We were 21-29 and 14.5 games back.

Just 2 weeks later and it's down to 7.5 and we have our best record (33-31) of the season.

That's why you never give up and those who project what the Yankees would have to do to gain ground the rest of the season should be taken with a grain of salt. In a sport where you play daily, those projections change in a hurry.

My goal was no more than 5-6 GB at the All-Star Break. Still is.

That's right.

Even though the Mets are struggling, they're still one of the favorites to win the NL Pennant.

It's very important for the Yankees to keep winning ballgames and continue to gain momentum in the standings whether it's the AL East division or the Wild Card.

I'm going to all three games vs the Mets, and I have a strange thing to say: I almost don't want to cheer and make noise, especially tonight with Clemens pitching.

As noted above, the Mets right now are a talented team playing terribly and listlessly (just like the Yankees were until very recently). The last thing I want is some kind of nail-biting rivalry thriller to get the Mets focused. I also don't want to see any kind of carryover bad blood from the Clemens-Piazza incidents, for the same reason.

Actually, there's even another reason: any high-emotion game tends to be bad for Roger, because he gets too hyped up. He's making only his second big-league start this year, so I hope he stays on the rails.

The Cards are awful. In fact, as poor as they've been playing, their XW-L is 24-39 (actual: 28-35). Kip Wells took his 11th loss of the season. It's a team without a #1 or #2. Their best pitchers are maybe #3 types.

FYI, Colorado outscored Boston 20-5 in the past series. Unfortunately, it would have taken 22 to sweep.

Also, someone on the Rockies board said it and I can't vouch for the poster's credibility, but apparently it was the first time in 4 years an NL team won a series at Fenway.

As our resident Sox fans have pointed out, they're slumping right now. San Fran taking 2 out of 3 would be nice.

Tonight, during the Yankees game with NY's 2nd team, we've got San Francisco at Boston.

Zito at Fenway: 2-2, 31 IP, 36 H, 16 ER, 13 BB, 24 K, 4.65 ERA, 1.58 WHIP, .288 BAA

Most of Tavarez' stats are as a reliever, so they're not really worth posting.

The Cards are awful. In fact, as poor as they've been playing, their XW-L is 24-39 (actual: 28-35). Kip Wells took his 11th loss of the season. It's a team without a #1 or #2. Their best pitchers are maybe #3 types.

Hasn't Braden Looper been their best starter? Poor Cards :(. The pitching matchups vs. Oakland should be interesting and is a "game to watch" on the scoreboard. Go Cards!

Other games of note in terms of WC standings:
Atlanta at Cleveland
Detroit at Philly
Seattle at Houston
Milwaukee at Minnesota

As much as I want Boston to lose, they sure as hell better not do it on a HR to Barry Bonds. In fact, they better not give up a HR to him period.

We have to come to the realization that he's going to break the record. Might as well make some use of the homers.

But the more homers he hits in Boston, the more likely it becomes that he could tie/break the record against Yankee pitching. I don't want any of our pitchers to forever go down as the guy who gave up 755 or 756. Now if he could somehow hit 9 in the next 3 games....

Ok. I'll let him hit a few if that happens ;).

Of course I'm kidding guys...the Red Sox losing will always be good. But I'd also like to see Bonds held HRless until he develops some strange ailment that prevents him from swinging a bat ever again (but I digress).
