2009 Red Sox Game 129 Preview

Romer0 vs Buchholz, at the fens, 7:10 p.m. Buchholz can be maddening. When he has been good he has been good, when bad, he has been bad. He is coming off of a bad outing from last time, hopefully he won't pull a Beckett and continue that trend tonight. MLB.com's probable information.

2009 Red Sox Game 128 Preview

Richmond vs Beckett - At the Fens, 7:10 the first pitch. MLB.com breakdown shows that Richmond has lost three straight and Beckett, well his last two games have really sucked. In fact his ERA has went from a sparkling 3.10 to a better than average 3.68 due to the 15 earned runs he has allowed in those thirteen and one-third innings.

Looking Ahead

Ok, the Sox finished off their latest road trip with a winning record and now here come the Yankees to Fenway. Presently the Sox are 6.5 games back of the Yankees with a chance to cut into that lead. Is this possible? Of course it is possible, but recent history says the Sox will probably fall further back.

From 2003 the Sox are 62-62 vs the Yanks. Dead even, but a further breakdown shows that in August and September the Sox are only 16-27 (7-13 at home). That is not what I want to see coming into this series.

2009 Red Sox Game 111 Preview

Penny vs Jackson - At the fens. Game time 7:05, liquor not required.

What did the last week tell us, this is a flawed team but not a bad team. With six weeks to go though the Sox need to concentrate on the wild card. That is what being 6.5 games back will do for you.

Fortunately, the Sox have the card in sight.
