    Taking 3 out of 4 on this one, I can feel it.

    I don't think Boston is as good as their record indicates....So I think 3 out of 4 would be expected, but the way this team is performing overall I'll take a split!

    With TA back, i think this team is gonna get going. Im feeling 3 of 4 as well!

    I almost always anticipate a split in a 4 gamer. I just think were about see the Sox progress to their mean starting with this series.

    This 4 game series might turn into a 3 or 2 game series.

    The weather today and tomorrow in Boston is crap.

    So those would both be 7 inning games, with Gio going in one of them.
    Would like to see him go all 7, and use the pen in the other if either of Cease or Kuechel canít go too deep. They have been the most suspect 2 starters. Cease has not been bad by any means, and I feel like Kuechel will get it going eventually.

    The funny thing is, with the 7 inning double header rule, if you have solid starters going, you may get away with completely avoiding the pen for the whole 2 games.

    Yup thatíd be ideal AF. Keuchel is more then capable and due for a 7 inning game. Gio could go 7 in his sleep.

    We already lost two games with the 10th inning ghost runner on second rule.
    What if we lose two more close games in 7 innings? How about those new rules?

    I hate the rule but we need to be better. Also, donít throw Crochet in that situation for a while. His confidence already looks sapped from it. And his fielding isnít there and there could be a book on his woes where we keep facing bunts in the 10th

    These new rules do not play to our favor. This is not the 05 Sox who could play small ball and manufacture runs. This team relies on stringing together hits, or a couple guys get on and hope for the long ball. I donít see it changing either, as I think that is just the way our roster is constructed.

    If Iím not mistaken, the playoffs will revert back to the regular rules, right?

    I still do not understand not bunting against the shift. The other night Grandal came up against the shift. He had the whole left side of the infield available. Any bunt placed near the 3B line was a sure hit. He promptly grounded hard, right into the shift.

    Even if you bunt foul, you are letting the other team know that you are considering it. Lay a few down, and maybe they donít play the shift anymore. If NL pitchers can be taught to sac bunt, a regular hitter should be able to guide a ball down the line. You donít even have to worry about deadening it.

    I agree. Especially when we are struggling for hits
