    It sucks for McHugh, who has mostly pitched well. He'd have been my #4, just because I think him and Morton are close and Morton would be better bullpen option.

    Biggest worry is the offense. We have two players with playoff success -- one was only one game, the other is 40 y/o.

    Let's Flip That Sh1t today, and set a good tone for the playoffs.

    For sure, he has a case for number 4. But Morton has been good and has earned the opportunity. Plus if the rest of the bullpen is right, Morton shouldn’t be needed in the pen. It looks like he’d be great in that role but not sure if he’s ever actually had experience doing it.

    Biggest worry is bullpen and defense for me.

    Lol!! Because it barely qualifies as a recipe! I do 98% of the cooking in our house (I love to cook), so it's left my wife with precious little skills in the kitchen. She can cook anything with instructions, but if I just say make some queso with ground chorizo in it, she won't feel confident in what she's doing. On the other hand, if I were doing it, it'd take about 10 minutes and I wouldn't measure a damn thing. As someone who cooks a lot, I felt a little dumb calling it a recipe... :D

    I just take a link of some good Mexican chorizo, remove it from the casing and brown it with 1/2 a diced onion and a diced jalepeno at medium heat on a non-stick skillet. I'm not trying to get a lot color or carmelization on it cause it turns the cheese sauce a funny color... just want to sweat it out and cook the sausage through. Then I drain the fat, and stir the meat mixture into a pot of melted Velveeta queso blanco and a can Rotel (medium).

    Only pick one ;)

    I mentioned defense in the first page -- namely at Catcher.

    1) we're weak at CS
    2) Sox do plenty SB

    WP and PB are more weaknesses.

    My biggest worry is Kevin Brown and Sterling Hitchcock ruin my month.

    I've been wondering how Bud Selig can put the screws to us.

    According to some heathens, worrying about the offense is "ass backwards logic".

    We'll see what The SouthPaw Sox have in store.

    Sure Sale or even Verlander have the capability of completely dominating even an all-star lineup for 9 innings. But that doesn’t mean you go into it with the lineup being the biggest concern. It should be the absolute least concerning thing about this team. Doesn’t mean **** can’t happen, just means we should feel good about their chances.
