Blame Phil Rogers

Anyone notice that the Sox's pitching started to crumble after Phil Rogers authored this article on the Trib and ESPN.com? Since then by my count, the Sox have given up:

11, 13, 6, 8, 3, 4, 4, 2, 7, 17, 4, 5, and 9 earned runs - in 118 innings. 93 ER in 118 innings pencils out to... a 7.09 ERA since Phil Rogers' article. Throw out Arnie Munoz's 11 ER in 3 innings, and you're still at a Coors-esque 6.41 ERA. And mind you, 6 of those games were played in Pro Player and Olympic Stadium.

Nice jinx, Phil.
