If you are to win your division, there will be games where you overcome some serious odds, to get a W. When you give up 21 hits in 9 innings, and still win, that is pretty amazing. That'w what the Sox did today. Of course it doesn't hurt when you get 18 base hits yourself. But there probably have not been may games where the opponent averages just under 2 1/2 hits per Inning and you still win. Wow!!
Garland looked like meat out there again, but the Sox lineup is looking good from #2 through #6.
Podsednik and Brian Anderson have been awful in the leadoff and number 9 spots. And Pods has been a complete hack in LF so far too. He's not right.
For us Sox fans, the past three days have been great. A big sweep at Comerica, to avoid a bad start.
