This is horrible: we need to win tonight to just win the series. With last nights disappointing loss, we look towards Curt Schilling (5-5, 6.43 ERA) to be our savior once again.

Jose Lima (4-12, 6.47 ERA) -- yes, that Jose Lima -- toes the rubber for the Royals. Lima is usually bad, but there's a chance that he can dominate us as he did against Detroit on August 14th when he went nine innings, giving up one run on just five hits. We really can't afford to see that Lima tonight.

Who wants to make a prediction for tonight's game? Not the score or anything, but Schilling's line in his return to the rotation. Here is mine:

5.0 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 2 BB, 6 K

Yes? No? Your thoughts?

Lineup for the game tonight. No David Ortiz because of a bruised hand. He is expected to be back tomorrow.
