Game 60 Thoughts

-The Sox are playing just good enough to win right now. Each game is taking a few hours off the tail end of my life.

-Javy's performance today was sort of the inverse of what we've come to expect from him. In the past he would cruise and dominate, and then once he got into a jam he woulf fall apart. Today, however, he seemingly found himself in a jam every inning, yet he pitched out of them. He didn't fall to pitches, and he gave another glimpse of the type of pitcher he could be for us.

-I can't even blame Cotts for giving up the homer to Hafner. Pronk absolutely rapes us. He owns us. I guess it's time to just call him our daddy.

-BA performance was a microcosm of his season so far. He laid an egg at the plate, but made a game saving catch in the eighth. If he doesn't make the catch, the Indians put up at least 1 more run on that play alone, if not two. I'll tell you had Mack been in the game, that would have been a triple, if not an inside-the-parker.

-I mentioned this before, but it's officially time to start a city-wide mancrush on Jermaine Dye. As James commented, he IS getting recognition now, at least from Sox fans. Let's see if the national media picks up on this and if he'll receive the accolades he deserves.

-Our struggles against lefties is a very disturbing trend. We can't even hit against Cliff Lee, who we have hit pretty well in two previous meetings.
