Stay away from his junk pitches and make him get his fastball up...his fastball is so mediocre nowadays that the Sox should be able to hit it all around the ballpark. If they swing at his junk out of the strike zone, they're probably going to lose.

 

This would be a good day to hit the ball where it's pitched. Hit it everywhere, don't let Mussina get comfortable throwing to a certain spot, and don't let the defense get comfortable.

 

Sox should win this game, but I wouldn't bet on anything.

Any reason why Floyd is getting skipped or pushed back? Its his scheduled day to pitch. Maybe they dont want him to lose confidence vs. New York, so they skip him?

 

Floyd pitches tomorrow against the Yankees.

But why were they switched?

 

It was to keep Javy on his usual schedule, as he has shown he's more effective without variations.

I figure Wang is their ace and Count is our #5 starter, so last night is more tolerable. I think we'll hammer Mussina tonight.

that's how I'm trying to sell it to myself, but yesterday was a bit of a gut punch game, I am really looking forward to see how they look tonight. Hughes and Mussina have been bad this year (although I believe Mussina pitched OK in his last outing). I don't want to hear how they magically "found it" against the Sox. Hawk would use the "You're not (insert # of games Mussina is over .500 here) games over .500 in your career for nothing" as the Sox are flailing away at pitches a foot out of the zone

Yeah, I'm not slamming Mussina over his career, he's been a very good pitcher, but those days are behind him, he has struggled this year

wasn't mussina on the mound during the "aaron rowand" game in the bronx, the one where the sox were hitting missiles back at mussina?

I'm pretty frustrated about last night's game. Wang's 2.00 WHIP from last night makes me sick that we didn't win. More reason for me to despise him. Looks like the lineup...assuming ozzie doesn't mess around too much, has a couple of guys who have done very well against Mussina. I can only hope they can make the Yankees look horrible on NATIONAL TV. I have mlb.tv, but I enjoy watching games on my tv. Well anyway, let's score 20 tonight! :headbang

Im hoping our new patient approach makes us effective vs Mussina tonight. I have the sinking feeling we are going to need alot of runs, especially since Ill be there.
