Game 124 Preview

Jose Contreras 11-5, 3.78 for the ChiSox

vs.

Justin Verlander 14-6, 3.14 for the Motor City Kitties

Jose stunk up the joint during his last start. He gave up 7 ER in 6 2/3 innings against the Royales with cheese, and ended up throwing 98 pitches.
I'm worried about Jose's arm, he has thrown a lot of innings since joining the Sox. I think Ozzie, in the future, needs to give him a shorter leash when he struggles. I don't want him to be tired by the end of the season.

We all know it's a big series. 4-game set. If the Sox sweep again, they're only 1.5 games back. If we get swept, we're 9.5 back. I know we're not getting swept, but this series could potentially kill us.

We've hit Verlander well. He 0-3 against us, and given up 15 ER in 12 2/3 innings. He's also struggled as of late. His ERA has steadily risen since hitting a season low of 2.69 on July 26.

GO SOX!

My pick to click is JD, Jermain Defoe! Oops, damn English soccer. I cleary mean our very own Jermaine Dye.
