Re: Official Boston Red Sox 2005 Thread

He wont be closing out games to start off with, but I wouldn't be surprised if Foulke goes on the DL to see Schill get a few chances, however I'd rather have Schilling in the rotation

Re: Official Boston Red Sox 2005 Thread

I'm not reading into this move too much. I think it's exactly what Francona said, a way to have Schilling make an immediate impact on the team. It sounds like his troubles have been mechanical so coming out of the bullpen will allow him to pitch more often and evaluate his progress. In the meantime he should help solidify the bullpen. When Schilling is ready to return to the rotation, hopefully the Foulke situation will be sorted out.

Can anyone picture the applause for Schilling coming out of the bullpen in the 9th inning at Fenway to close out a game? my god
Yea, well how hard to you have to look to get a starter of Schil's caliber? Very hard, when healthy. It ain't nearly as hard to get a very reliable closer. Schil is starter Terry!

I agree. I'm happy with the current rotation and I think we can get to the playoffs with them but I would NOT be comfortable going into a 7 game series with a rotation of Clement, Wake, Arroyo and Wells.

I think if Schilling works out in the pen, the starters continue to do a pretty good job, and Foulke continues to have problems, the odds are strong that (atleast IMHO) that Schill will stay in the pen. And Theo will go ahead a move his attention to acquiring a starting pitching.

Although that's alot that would have to happen, and alot of "ifs"

That could be the case, especially if Theo decides the market for starting pitching is better than relief. I'd feel much better about the Sox giving away prospects for a Burnett or Schmidt than a Guardado or Villone.

exactly, that's part of the reasoning I saw in them moving Schill to the pen


Bad news but not unexpected, Foulke to the 15 Day DL, Arthroscopic surgery is scheduled. Don't know when it will happen though, link when I get one

I don't know if I'd consider that bad news. At least it provides for a possible explanation for Foulke's poor showing this season. Hopefully it rights him and he can contribute down the stretch.
