A couple more games like today's and Jim Leyland will be looking for work.

Sox put another beat down on the #1 team in the league to complete the sweep on their home turf...niiiiice.

Ok, so the Sox just went 9-4 in a stretch of 13 games (11 on the road) in 13 days against contenders. They played three straight first-place teams to finish it off and went 7-1 against the Twins, Phillies and Rays. They gave up only 16 runs in those eight games. Big Papi has been one of the hottest hitters in baseball in May (another dinger last night), but even more impressive is the fact that Adrian Beltre is finally playing some gold glove defense and has probably been the most consistent Boston hitters all season. After his first 2 homer game of the season last night, consider this (from boston.com):

- His 12 total bases last night were the most for a Red Sox player since Kevin "Cowboy Up" Millar hit three homers against the Yankees on July 23, 2004.
- He is hitting .341 with a .371 on-base percentage. Nobody expected that.
- He is 16 of his last 31 and leads the Sox with 19 multi-hit games this season.

So which is the "real" Boston Red Sox for 2010, the team we saw in April or the team we have seen in May? Time will tell but the newcomers finally seem to be gelling, they are getting a few key guys back in the lineup (Ellsbury, Cameron), and with the exception of Beckett and his bad back, the Sox starters are finally getting the job done. Should be an interesting summer.

One question mark is Mike Lowell. With Papi and Youk both on a tear, there really is no regular place for him and by all accounts he isn't happy as backup/insurance. Hate to seem him go and I doubt they be able to get much from him, but my guess is he's traded or released by July 4th.

No doubt they can score a lot of runs. Starting pitching is the question mark.

Dude can hit, and hit when it matters...

.290 lifetime with RISP -- .299 with the bases juiced.

Which is funny because it is the exact opposite of what the "experts" were saying going into the season ("best starting rotation in baseball, but weak offensively"). I still think they have one of the stronger rotations in baseball with Lester, Beckett (hurt at the moment), Lackey, Buccholz, DiceK and Wakefield, they just need to pitch to past performance and expectations more than they have so far. The signs are good, Sox starters have allowed only 4 runs in their last 32 1/3 innings, which is not too shabby especially considering those innings were against 1st place teams.

I doubt he will be released, then they get nothing. I'm sure they could make some sort of deal for him, but I think his days as a starter are over.


He doesn't think so, which is why they might just release him rather than have a malcontent taking up a roster spot for too much longer. The other GMs know the situation and that will make trading him for anything more than a bag of batting practice balls very difficult.

The last time the Mets shutout an opponent three games in a row it was Philadelphia......And it was in 1969.

I went to the Rockies vs Diamondbacks game and saw the back to back to back home runs, which was pretty exciting. The first 2 were identical looking shots from lefties and since we were by home plate on the 3rd base side we had great seats to see them take off. It was a great day for a ball game and if you are in Denver you have to try to catch a game a Coors Field.

I go to Coors every time I go to Colorado. I've been there about 5 or 6 times. I love that ballpark.

_______________________________________________________________________
I love it also. One of the great things about it is you can walk around the whole first level and see the game from everywhere while on the outside there are vendors, stores, a brewpub, a kid's area with store and food stand etc. I like to go stand behind home plate for an inning and watch the pitching. I mainly sit behind the visitor dugout 3 rows back.
Dodgers broke Rockies 5 game win streak yesterday.

I'm glad he's out of the AL period. But his best days are behind him now. Shot his wad. He's just a shadow of his former self. Yeah, that's it, the guy's a chump.

Just trying to convince myself, that's all. Unless, of course, the Tigers pick him up. Then he'll be great! Hey, I wonder if the Phil's would be interested in trading him for Dontrelle Willis? Hmm???

No, we got rid of Ed Wade a few years ago.

He's probably on thin ice in Houston for putting together such a bad ballclub.

Pretty bizarre deal in Anaheim yesterday. Kendry Morales breaks his leg jumping on home plate to celebrate a walk off grand slam. The Angels, already a little weak on offense, lose their best player celebrating a GWHR. He's the Chester Marcol of MLB!

How about them Blue Jays!!!!!

I think GWB had a hand in the Jays being so bad these past few years. Change of administration has done a world of good for them Taranha Blue Jays!!!

Moving out of the Metrodome doesn't appear to have hurt the Twins. Sitting in 1st place, 18-9 at home.
