We have 21 games vs the White Sox, Yankees, O's, Rockies, and Jays. We are a better team than all of them. Win most of these series and the division should be ours unless the Rays play crazy baseball. If we play a game below .500 the remaining 27 games we will win 92 games. That would definitely win us a wild card, and might be good enough for the division.

Rays are on the west coast for their next 3 series(OAK, LA, SEA)and then we face them again.

I don't want them to die, just implode. Maddon, Rodney, Archer are at the top of that list, but I won't complain if others cause the downfall.

Everybody prepared to see Xander sit vs the lefty?

-Lavigne43-
08-30-2013, 02:36 PM
Danks has reverse splits, so unless you plan to sit him both games using him today would be the best matchup.

Like I said, everybody ready to see him sit vs the lefty? :laugh2:

At this point, if I knew he was going to sit this damn much, I would of left him in AAA and had him participate in the playoff run and actual playoffs.

Not a bad game really. Uehara coming in to close the door...

As for all the anti Manager comments. None of us are privy to what the trainers and coaches are saying about who can play, who should sit, etc. Then there are the requests of the FO such as make sure xyz plays 1050 innings to kick in some contract language.

The team is playing well, almost every FA we got has panned out. I can see some things I'd do differently, but, the results speak for themselves.

-Lavigne43-
08-31-2013, 12:11 AM
Santiago's splits are pretty much the same so I don't mind that decision. I only dislike it if Xander starts tomorrow. Lefties hit Danks better than righties this year and for his career. If you are going to sit Drew one of the two games it should have been today.

O's lose, at this point it would take a miracle for them to win the division. It's going to be us or the Rays, who are losing right now.

Victorino vs R as R - .300/.386/.520, .399 wOBA, 150 wRC+

Maybe him getting injured was a good thing. He's crushing it from the right side.

So he did decide to start Bogaerts vs the LHP with reverse splits. Wtf Farrell? Should have started him yesterday and Drew today if you were going to split it between them.

Orioles are collapsing. They lost again, definitely not winning the division, they'll have trouble getting a wild card. Yankees actually passed them.

Xander with a 9 pitch walk, the first walk of his big league career

That was a brutal at bat for Victorino. So many pitches down the middle, and he strikes out looking on a fastball just about down the middle

There we go Gomes.

Also, McDonald can back up Pedey but hes not good for much else... Holt could have done that.

We need a right handed RP. Lindstrom would be nice if he is the only one who has cleared waivers

I'd want to enter that final Rays series with at least a three game lead and then take at least 2 out of 3. Another thing to add, it looks like Hughes is gonna pitch against us next week so that's always a plus.

Yes. We have to make room on the 40 man for him and McDonald.

We play the Tigers and Yankees while the Rays play the Angels (who have won 8 out of 9) for 4 and then the terrible Mariners (but will see both Iwakuma and Felix in the series). While we have a very favorable match up tomorrow against a rookie right hander at home. While the Rays are in Oakland and have Roberto Hernandez on the mound.

We should hopefully be able to win 2 out of 3 against the Tigers and then 3 out of 4 against the Yanks (Dempster won't be pitching that series)
The Tigers series is big and we should want to win as many as we can against them for home field advantage in the AL, which will end up being big.

We should be up more than 3 by the time that series rolls around and hopefully more like 6-7 games or so.

Ok I am getting WAYYY ahead of myself, hopefully we can just win tomorrow. lol

-Lavigne43-
09-01-2013, 12:56 PM
You can forget about home field advantage. Detroit has an incredibly easy September schedule. Possibly the easiest in all of baseball. Focus on the division. If we have a solid lead after the Rays series it's probably 99% ours

We currently have the best record in the AL. Texas is losing (would be 2 GB) and Detroit already lost (1.5 GB). This upcoming series vs Detroit could go a long way in us getting home field advantage during the playoffs. Win two, steal one. Hoping for a sweep or 2/3.

Like I said before, Detroit has an extremely easy schedule for the rest of the season. KC is the only above .500 team they face, and they are barely above .500. No way we finish with a better record then them.

Rays lose! I'm feeling confident about the division. The Rays should worry about the wild card, they only have a 3 game lead.
