No I said the Sox should easily get the win after Lester struggled settled in, and I was right: he pitched to the win. Tazawa gave up his second walk then the second HR of the season for him...
ah well 2 BB and 2 HRs in 13 apps is still pretty good for the future....
Pretty good percentage...two straight days you were right on the money

Heck thats baseball, he was bound to get knocked around. In fairness he's pitched so well in 2013, can he keep it up however?
He got roughed up but still pitched to the win.

Think that says alot about stamina.

Anybody checking out the big bat Papi has? 15 RBIs in 9 games...slim for him and running...so much for idiotic hot dog taunts eh?

<quoted text>Lester got more lucky than pitching to the win, right? Lester doesn't hit and getting run support is out of his control. If Latos or Strasberg had the luck that Lester got yesterday, they'd each have 5 wins already
And if your grandmother had balls she'd be your grandfather...

I don't get the point. If Lester struggles and the bats don't keep the score close then its a blowout? Thats about as relevant as if Lester struggles and 4 days later the Sox are still batting in the first inning....

Well think I should lay off the predictions because as soon as I get one wrong thats all I'll ever hear about.

Phpeplps v Bedard? You'd have to watch that with a clothespin on your nose....Astros looking at the surging Tigers next...they may come after Pheplspy hard...

If I'm the 'Stros would green light the whole game, all in....

Lets say you and I are fighting for the 5th spot on the Sox.

In 5 games, you're 5-0. However you never lasted past the 5th inning, and your era is over 5 and have walked 14 batters. However the Sox are scoring 10 runs every time you get the start.

In my 5 games, I'm 0-2 with 3 no decisions. My era is in the low 2's and I only walked 3 batters. I have went into the 7th inning at least in every start. However I don't get any run support. Of course this luck can change at any time as both of us cannot be a factor in whether our teams scores.

Now only 1 of us can make the postseason roster. Who should it be?

Oh boy...Yankee draft preview:

NEW YORK YANKEES

Top 10-Rd. Picks: 26, 32, 33, 66, 103, 134, 164, 194, 224, 254, 284 & 314

Bonus Pool:$7,957,400

Scouting Director: Damon Oppenheimer (ninth year)

Oppenheimer’s First-Round History: C.J. Henry (17th overall, 2005), Ian Kennedy (21st overall, 2006), Andrew Brackman (30th overall, 2007), Gerrit Cole (28th overall, 2008), Slade Heathcott (29th overall, 2009), Cito Culver (32nd overall, 2010) & Ty Hensley (30th overall, 2012)

Oppenheimer’s Top 5-Round Breakdown: 41 picks (16 college pitchers, seven college position players, four high school pitchers & 14 high school position players)

Oppenheimer’s top picks in the last five drafts have been high school players with mixed results. Cole didn’t sign, Heathcott is very talented, but has battled off-field and injury issues, Culver has a minor league OPS of .638 through his first four seasons and recently gave up switch-hitting, Dante Bichette is repeating at low Class A after a rough year there in 2012 and Hensley recently had hip surgery and will miss most of the season.

Since 2007, Yankees drafts have produced six big leaguers, but no regulars—David Phelps, Brandon Laird, Austin Romine, D.J. Mitchell, Andrew Brackman and Adam Warren. All but Romine are college products.

You go with the guy who pitched deeper. Decision wins, runs, ERA and walks aside. Because he will save your pen.

So I'd make the team than, despite you being 5-0. I pitch deeper, give up less runs, walk less hitters and allow less runs than you.

Jimbos just a bambling idiot and Bronto likes to chime in when he's bored, but he's messing with the wrong guy. Speaking of messing did you break any noses today or just make a mess of a couple of faces ?

The funny part about it is Kennedy was the best they did and he was part of the Detroit-Arizona fleecing.....

Youre talking about a fifth starter making a playoff roster, so chances are they don't get a start in a series anyway.

So youre looking at a mop up long reliever.

Its not a hard question to answer. If youre point is that the wins don't make a matter in the decision: they don't.

Now if youre talking about a #2-3 guy then its different. The bats support that guy and you want the team to be comfortable.

Does that answer where your going with this?
