Now, if I was a Red sox fan, I’d be slamming my fist down on the panic button. They already lost 2 of three to the mighty Baltimore Orioles. The Braves, who were said to be trying to rest their big 3 relievers thru September, are using them EVERY game just trying to stay afloat. Not to mention, Jurrjens and Hanson are still on the disabled list.
The Phillies on the other hand have clinched home field throughout the playoffs. Before the season, I thought they’d get 99 wins. They have 98 now and still have 8 games left. Who knows what Charlie is thinking, but my plan would have been to rest the starters as much as possible. Then, the last week, play the starting lineup so they can get their timing down only spelling players for injury.
I’m going to the jeweler to get sized, you comin'? Or are you gonna bite your nails and worry like a little bitch? Man up!
See ya at the ball park!
