Game 50 - Jays game 10

As usual, all stats come from the day by day database at Baseball Musings.

Well, Clement did nothing to gain my confidence yesterday, Theo, release the boy because you sure can’t trade him. For those of you with an iron stomach you can read all about it here.

Today its Chacin vs Beckett and that should be a quality game. Chacin has made one start in his career at home against the Sox and his pitching line was 6 – 7 – 1 – 0 – 0 – 2 – 2 which makes it a 0.00 ERA at home against the Sox. Overall in four games he is 2 and 0 with a 5.49 ERA in 19 2/3 innings.

All of Beckett’s starts against the Jays are this year. He has made one start at Toronto (the extra inning fiasco remember) with a pitching line of 7 1/3 – 5 – 5 – 5 – 3 – 2 – 3 for a 6.14 ERA. In three games he is 1 and 0 with a 4.66 era over 19 1/3 innings.

From what I can tell Beckett is 5 and 0 after a loss this year with 3 ND. Unfortunately all of those ended up being losses. Still, after eight losses he has given the team a chance to win in all of those losses and I will take that any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

I fully expect Beckett to pitch a whale of a game, of course Chacin being a leftie, I expect him to pitch good also. I expect a tight game tonight, with the boys hanging on at the end to go back up 3 1/2 games.
