:)

Reports this AM indicate the Sox have plenty of depth a SS. I hope so; I enjoyed watching Iglesias in the field.

Are they moving Jake to shortstop?  ???

I know he was a bust at pitching for the White Sox but I think he'll be even worse at SS  :p

For those that have never seen Peavy  pitch listen for him swearing after me makes a bad pitch or doesn't get he call on a strike. You can pick it up from the microphones that gather the crowd noise. He drops the "F" bomb quite often and rather loud.

Not feeling bad about Jake moving on but kind of bummed out about Jesse Crain  out of the bullpen being traded. He was one of the better relief pitchers the WS had.

So do you guys think Boston can make the run to the finish? I know I'm pulling for them.

Pittsburgh Pirates now own a 1.5 game lead in the NL Central.  Go Bucs!

Pitching is the void right now so hopefully Peavy will will come in, catch some of the team's confidence and show us a brilliant August and September. If so, then yes. If not, we'll be pulling hard for Buchholz to heal up quickly and finish strong.

And yes, Billy, I enjoyed watching Iglesias on the left side of the infield too. He was a significant contributor with both glove and bat.

Your welcome again.  Sure am glad the two players we got for Liriano are doing so well! :(

To be honest Peavy pitched okay for the W Soxs but never got any run support. He did brake a rib pitching in a game this last year which makes me wonder about his use of performance drugs since his Tommy John surgery. When Peavy is on he's lights out for the opposing team. With the big bats that Boson has perhaps Peavy will fare better there than he did in Chicago.

Good luck to ya !

August is starting off pretty well for the Sox with two walk off wins so far this month.

I did the same but on a whim I flipped back to it in the bottom of the ninth... Simply amazing. What a fun team to watch this year  :D .

My Nats have been the biggest disappointment in baseball this year.  I started worrying when they received such glowing reviews before the season started.

If Verlander could get over his contract and chubby model slump, the Tigers will be a contender, especially with the trades and Avila starting to hit a bit.

The Tigers appear to be smoking hot right now. Haven't they won something like nine out of their last ten games?
