The Sox haven't won a game since last Wednesday. That seems like such a long time ago. The Twins have added a second basemen, and look to make more moves in the next couple of weeks. The Indians, who've played some of the best baseball in the league the last two months, are playing host to the Sox and looking to make a statement that they are going to stick around this year. The second half is not going to be a cake walk.
It would be nice if we had a good pitcher slated to pitch in the opener. Instead we've got a 'thrower' in Jose Contreras. Cleveland sends former ace Kevin Millwood to the mound. He was unimpressive, but had great numbers, in his first outing against us, and was impressive, with more mediocre numbers, in his second start against us.
