    but, the better your teams' ERA, offense, defense etc. is, the better your chances of winning more games.
    Would I prefer a pitcher who loses a game 3-2 and went 7 innings over one who wins the 8-6 game? Debatable. If it's late in the season and I absolutely had to win a game, sometimes you'll have to remember that certain pitchers get lots of run support. Others, the offense doesn't turn out for them, so they'll almost have to be perfect every time.

    Moose used to be stingy with the pitching and got very little offense. It seemed like he'd want to win 4-2 every game. Once he got a lot of run support, he'd often fall apart. Must've been from his Baltimore days when he didn't get much run support. Anyway, he's pitching better now, went 7-2/3 innings. He'd gotten more run support tonight than did Wang on Tuesday and both won.

    Oh yeah, tell Ortiz, Manny, Youk, Drew and the whole gang that you won't win many games even against a low-placed NL West team if you only score 2 runs. At least you'd thrown a nice 12-run party for them tonight!



    Hiya, Ken!

    With the way Boston's been losing games recently, I'd be very surprised if they even made the playoffs. Unless they have a great July, then 2nd or 3rd place may seem very comfy by the trade deadline. You think I'm kidding you? I'm not.

    Beantown = 4-6 in the L10 column; the Evil Empire is 9-1 for the same. Who should be really worried about having a "shot"? If Boston keeps playing like that, the "ya coulda been a contender" may not just be for boxers.

          I thought this pic was a peek into the future: Yankee fans celebrate their 27th WS win. :hyper:

          If things go on like this, it won´t be impossible. Boston keeps losing, the Yanks keep winning.

                Well, never let it be said that, (occasionally), we don't make our out-of-town guests feel welcome. I just hope we don't make it a habit . . .

                    • Someone needs to check the calendar again because it's a little early for the "Swoon Season" in Boston. It usually comes around August and September. Just hang on it will be here soon enough.

                          I got yelled at by a tour guide at Fenway Park for knowing too much. Of course, I guess she didn't realize that Cincinnati is baseball (crappy baseball, but baseball).
                          Unlike most other team sports, in which teams usually have an equivalent number of players on the field at any given time, in baseball the hitting team is at a numerical disadvantage, with a maximum of 5 players and 2 base coaches on the field at any time, compared to the fielding team's 9 players. For this reason, leaving the dugout to join a fight is generally considered acceptable in that it results in numerical equivalence on the field, and a fairer fight.

                          • Well, in the last 2 years, the time I've lived in Boston... there have been very few instances where someone has said something to me about being a Yankee fan. Keep in mind: I wear a blue yankees fitted hat every single day (no exceptions lol) and I am a VERY VERY vocal, obnoxious, new yorker, yankees fan.. Ive worn an ARod jersey and yankees hat in Fenway and barely gotten any heckling etc.

                            Come to NY with redsox gear, especially yankee stadium, you're gonna AT LEAST get yelled at every 5 minutes
