I loved the move to put Mirabelli at DH last night vs the RH. Ortiz is struggling and Doug kills LHP so it made sense. Even if, god forbid, Tek gets hurt you'd only be without the DH for a couple at bats.

Gonzalez and Halama filled in very well. The bullpen allowed more runs than they did. It looks like Wade Miller will get the start Sunday. It should be interesting to see what he can do. I'd be happy if he could give us something in the 4.00 ERA range this year. I'm assuming this means Gonzalez will head back to Pawtucket.

Gonzalez will start saturday against the Mariners, if he has another good outing like he did on monday he may stick with the team which could make Blaine Neal the odd man out. Neal has been awful so far this season, with an ERA of 9.00 he has allowed 7 earned runs in 7 innings.

Wade Miller looked good in his final tune up in Pawtucket last night he pitched 5.2 innings allowing 4 runs (3 earned) on 5 hits walking 4 and striking out 7.

Re: Official Boston Red Sox 2005 Thread

I wouldn't say thats looking good. Four walks indicates his command isn't where it should be.

I'll be at the game Saturday. I'm kind of wishing Miller was starting then, hopefully Ginzalez doesn't stink up the place.

Neal has been awful and he's hard to figure out. He's got a pretty good 2-seamer with some great movement on it but his command is just plain terrible. And he doesn't have a reliable second pitch, from what I've seen. Maybe he could get in some games at the Triple A level and figure it out, though he's kind of past that point in his career.

I'm guessing if Gonzalez stays, that would send Halama back to the bullpen? Blaine Neal is definitely the odd man out. He's just a garbage time pitcher now as it is so no big loss.

Most likely Halama would go back to the 'pen. Gonzalez only has 3 career relief appearences, he could be put in the bullpen but i think it will be halama.

Francona has already said Halama is going back to the pen. He'll probably be available to pitch over the weekend.

Renteria just came out of the game vs Detroit. He tried to bunt and took the ball off his right index finger. This is just what we need with Vazquez not completely healthy either.

What's with Ortiz questioning every strike call against him lately? He's turning into Paul O'Neil.
