These games are going to be epic, despite what anyone says. Loving the pitching matchup the first two days!

First time making a GD thread. Lol :P

Hopefully they win tonight. Should be a fun series to watch.

I'm giving Zim the day off on my fantasy team.  Mark Reynolds gets the jump from Utility to 3b an the newly aquired Todd Helton moves into the starting lineup.  Hopefully that will help straighten him out and get his head cleared.

Do not use Mark Reynolds if your league uses -1 for Ks (some do)... he's a killer in that regard.

If we take 2-of-3 from the FratSox and earn take 6-of-9 from the American League East in this set, that makes the first part of this season a bigger abomonation than previously discussed. 

At least the Rays did what they were supposed to.     :?

how will it be epic if we get swept and the Red Sox fans take over the park?

d-bag sawx fans will be there this week, nothing we can do.

crappy team, building fanbase, ownership/front office that is begging for red sox fans to come to their ballpark.

Good baseball. I don't care if the stadium is full of Orioles fans.

We don't.  We're not that serious about it...

Three close games and a win, two would be better, could do a lot for the fanbase development and maybe the team can start moving on from April and May.

Going to a sports bar tonight - I can just ask for them to put on the Red Sox game. So much easier than asking for the Nats game.

Sounds good to me.  I would be very happy with three close games and at least one win.  I have a bad feeling that we are going to get swept and blown out of the water, though.  I bet the Sox will pretty much have home field advantage throughout the series and that Nats park will be worse than FedEx when the Steelers fans invaded on MNF.

Remember, they'll likely have Ortiz at first for at least one game.  So, Ortiz, Youkilis or Lowell will not be in the lineup all at once.  They'll still be potent but maybe not as much so as usual.

hopefully brad penny - who we could've gotten - won't be on his game tonight.  he's 1-0 with a 4.77 ERA in his last two starts against the nats.

Any excuse to sit Ortiz makes them better.

what? :?

one win sucks and is not an accomplishment. if they win tonight which they should they need to take at least 2 if not all 3 games. we are 30 games under .500. every game is a must win.
