Henderson Alvarez.......Felix Doubront
3-6, 4.30 ERA..........8-3, 4.31 ERA


http://toronto.bluejays.mlb.com/mlb/images/team_logos/60x60/tor.gif
Alvarez was chased from his last outing against the Brewers after just 81 pitches. The right-hander gave up six runs on 11 hits, while striking out one and walking two in four innings. He hasn't won since May 10.


http://toronto.bluejays.mlb.com/mlb/images/team_logos/60x60/bos.gif
Doubront has gone six innings in nine of 12 starts since April 21. He was not stellar in a six-inning, four-run effort against the Marlins on Wednesday but did not need to be in a 15-5 Sox romp. The early going of the game was particularly sticky.

0-0, 3.00 ERA.......0-2, 6.06 ERA

http://toronto.bluejays.mlb.com/mlb/images/team_logos/60x60/tor.gif
Laffey is set to make his first start of the season. He has appeared in four games with the Blue Jays this year, allowing three runs in nine frames. Laffey went 3-4 with a 3.81 ERA in 10 starts at Triple-A Las Vegas.

http://toronto.bluejays.mlb.com/mlb/images/team_logos/60x60/bos.gif
Dice-K's three starts back with the Red Sox have been lukewarm. But he has an encouraging WHIP of 1.10 and has 15 strikeouts in 16 1/3 innings.

Ricky Romero..........Jon Lester
8-1, 4.34 ERA.........4-5, 4.48 ERA

http://toronto.bluejays.mlb.com/mlb/images/team_logos/60x60/tor.gif
Romero allowed four runs during his last start against Miami. Most of the damage occurred on a pair of homers by Giancarlo Stanton and Omar Infante. Romero has surrendered at least four runs in six consecutive starts, but hasn't lost since May 13.

http://toronto.bluejays.mlb.com/mlb/images/team_logos/60x60/bos.gif
Lester, who had a quality start his last time out but lost, has been frustrated for a while now. He said, "I'm making good pitches, and they're getting hit. I don't know what else to do. The process is there. I'm still not getting results."



Red Sox eye onslaught for Doubront vs. Jays
(wonder who MLB.com is hyping here....) :eyebrow:


Kevin Youkilis is out of Boston after being traded to the White Sox on Sunday, and the Red Sox can begin moving on without him Monday as they continue to work their way up the American League East standings.

Having won eight of their last 10 games, the Red Sox will send left-hander Felix Doubront to the mound against the Blue Jays and right-hander Henderson Alvarez. Doubront gave up four runs on nine hits in six innings against the Marlins on Wednesday, but picked up the win as Boston scored 15 runs.

"My teammates have scored a lot of runs to help me in those kinds of situations when I give up runs," Doubront said. "That helps me. We're a great team."

That team no longer includes Youkilis, but that clears the way for rookie slugger Will Middlebrooks, who will take over at third base for good. Middlebrooks went 0-for-2 with a walk, an RBI and a run as the designated hitter Sunday, bringing his average on the season to .326.

"Typically, those teams are lineups that grind out at-bats, they're not going to chase out of the zone a lot," Blue Jays manager John Farrell said, referring to AL East rivals Boston and New York. "Regardless of the team, I always go back to the guy on the mound is the most important guy, and how he sets the tone early to give our offense a chance to get on track. That's what it will come down to."

For the Blue Jays, that means it will come down to Alvarez, who gave up six runs on 11 hits against the Brewers last Monday. He was chased after only 81 pitches, getting through four innings with two walks and a strikeout. The right-hander hasn't won a game since May 10 and has seen his ERA climb from 2.62 to 4.30 over that stretch.

Doubront, meanwhile, is 6-2 with a 3.83 ERA and 53 strikeouts since May 12. He has held his opponents to two earned runs or fewer in six starts during that span, and pitched at least six innings in nine of his last starts.

Blue Jays: Lind back in the big leagues
With Interleague Play officially over for Toronto, Farrell can once again turn to Edwin Encarnacion -- who had been playing first base under National League rules -- at designated hitter. That allowed the Blue Jays to promote first baseman Adam Lind from Triple-A after Sunday's loss.

After losing his starting job earlier this season due to a rough start at the plate, Lind hit .395 with eight homers and 29 RBIs in 31 games in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League.

"Edwin will be in the role that he's done. Obviously we've had him on the field every day," Farrell said before Sunday's game. "If we can get another left-handed bat in the lineup, we'll look to do that, and that will give Edwin a chance to DH."

Toronto also activated outfielder Ben Francisco from the disabled list, optioned David Cooper and Mike McCoy to Las Vegas and moved Sergio Santos to the 60-day DL to make room on the 40-man roster for Lind.

Red Sox: Pedroia heating up after slump
Dustin Pedroia followed up his three-hit game Saturday by going 1-for-3 on Sunday. His three hits Saturday were his most in one game since May 11, and it snapped an 0-for-11 slump and a 9-for-62 skid.

"When it rains, it pours. You go from cold to real hot. It's coming," said Pedroia, who's batting .268 on the year. "The last few days I've swung the bat good, and I just didn't get any hits. That's the tough part to deal with mentally, when you have good at-bats and quality at-bats and don't get any hits. You just have to know that they are coming, and they will. Once you find it, you just take off."

Boston placed right-hander Clay Buchholz on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with what the Red Sox called "a gastrointestinal situation." Valentine didn't go into much detail about Buchholz, but hoped the righty would be ready as soon as his 15-day stint on the DL is over. He has gone 4-0 with a 2.43 ERA over his last five starts.

Worth noting
With Sunday's 9-4 win over the Braves, the Red Sox have won 10 of their last 14 series dating back to May 10. They have lost just three series in that time and tied once.

After going 1-for-4 with a double in Sunday's 9-0 loss to the Marlins, Brett Lawrie is hitting .311 (23-for-74) with six doubles, one triple and three homers in 18 games since moving into the leadoff spot.

bartron_44
06-25-2012, 01:38 PM
Hopefully Alvarez learned not to try to throw his breaking ball for strikes from his last outing. He needs to pump his fastball in at 96/97 and try to get his changeup around 85 mph. When he relies on the 2 seamer around 92 mph, it is too close in speed to his change up, and I think that is what has changed over the past month. At the beginning of the season of his first few starts, he was throwing 96-97 mph. Lately he is thowing 92-94 mph. I am assuming the 97 mph fastballs at the beginning of the year were 4 seamers, and the 92 mph fastballs now are 2 seamers. If not he is either tired or hurt....

The only chance we have is if our 1-4 lineup can muster up a few home runs.

The power of positive thinking.

http://www.successconsciousness.com/index_00003a.htm



Positive thinking is contagious. People around you pick your mental moods and are affected accordingly. Think about happiness, good health and success, and you will cause people to like you and desire to help you, because they enjoy the vibrations that a positive mind emits.

In order to make positive thinking yield results, you need to develop a positive attitude toward life, expect a successful outcome of whatever you do, but also take any necessary actions to ensure your success.

thats the problem, he doesnt have the separation like last year and his sinker is too up and not getting the ground balls.

Last year his change averaged 85.1MPH this year its 85.2MPH and his fastball is about half a tick less this year. Separation isn't the problem, its the fact his slider doesn't move and is almost indistinguishable from his change so he's essentially a two pitch pitcher.
