    Here we are folks, August.

    Time to make your post trade deadline prediction for the now Manny-less 2008 squad. Here's the current situation...

    Games ahead in WC: 0.5 (Runner up: Twins)
    Games behind divison lead: 3

    Record since All-Star Break: 4-8 (.333)
    Series record: 1-3 (Two sweeps by Angels)
    Home record: 1-5 (.167)
    Away record: 3-3 (.500)
    Outscored: 43-60

    Games David Ortiz has been back: 6 (1-5)
    Current streak: 3 game losing streak

    The crucial August month for the Sox starts tonight @ 7:05 at home against the A's for a 3 game series. Try to be extra bold and give your prediction pre-Bay's first-at-bat. :eek:

    They slumped at the right time. A new, rejuvinated, Manny-less Sox team will catch fire in August and overtake the Rays. The Yankees will win the wild card. Check out the Rays schedule from here on out, it's very hard.

    i don't think the sox make the playoffs. not because they dont have Manny. but there bullpen is far to inconsistent and there starting pitching has been underachieving. dice k cant keep doing his high wire act and expect to keep getting away with it. josh Beckett is pitching like the 06 Beckett and bucholtz and wake are unreliable. the only guy you can count on is Lester. i hope im wrong.

    I'm really anxious to see Bay's debut tonight.
