Blank - I don't think his opinions/assumptions of the Sox pen are any more unreasonable than your opinions/assumptions about the Yankee rotation. I didn't really understand how you can criticize him for making assumptions when you're assuming that Wright doesn't implode, Moose and RJ stay healthy and effective, Chacon continues to impress after coming down from the mountain, and Wang is able to contribute upon his return.
And the Sox are
still the champs.
come on man, you've got to be joking me with your crap. wright and chacon have given us a good amount of work this season to base our opinions with. you're telling me tat you're certain that foulke who was getting light up like a xmas tree before he got hurt and got smacked around in the minors is gona post amazing numbers down the stretch? im not saying it cant happen, but blank's assumptions have a lot more backing them then your opinion. the only thing not biased about your statement was tat the sox are still the champs.
You do know that WharfRat is a Yankees fan just like you, right, so how could he be biased? If anything, that was a very impartial statement.
And he didn't say anything about Foulke..
His point was that blankman's opinions/assumptions have the same backing in relation to those that believe the Sox's pen will do fine, and I'd tend to agree.
