I don't have much to say about yesterday's game. It was disappointing to get beat by the Rockies' pen again, since, like I said, I don't really think much of it. But I might think of some other stuff to write in this space and I leave that option open. In any case, an open thread is probably a decent idea. Feel free to link dump and I'll get them up on the main post if they're worthwhile. **EDIT** I was too lazy to put up all of Wiz's links, but they all satisfy the worth requirement.
I do want to ask what you would place the Sox playoff odds at. Larry said 2/3 as a convenient ratio and having had a look at the Tigers' BP team audit (see BP Playoff Odds Update ) and considering Victor Martinez is done for 6-8 weeks, I like our chances. I'll say over/under 70%. Let's see some long winded well considered responses. And I still want to see someone convincingly photoshop a skinny Torpedo Boat.
UPDATE (The Wizard): Is Konerko DL bound?
... As if the final score weren't bad enough, the health of Paul Konerko is worrisome. A trip to the disabled list may be coming after he missed Sunday's game with a strained muscle in his left rib cage. "When you've got the problem with the rib cage, I hope for the best, but I'm not too optimistic about it because I know how the thing can be," manager Ozzie Guillen said. "We're going to make a decision [Tuesday] to see what we'll do. "Most of the time [the DL] happens because that's a real sensitive area and one you use the most playing baseball."
Jim Thome missed three weeks with a similar injury last season. Konerko first felt the pain during pregame indoor batting practice. "I've never had anything happen like that," he said. "I don't have any answers. I took a swing and ended the day, and that's that. We'll see where it's at on Tuesday." ...
