Re: Official Boston Red Sox 2005 Thread

These moves make me think there might be some truth to the JC Romero for Bill Mueller. Getting rid of Embree would clear room for a LH reliever and acquiring Graffanino gives you the flexibility to move Muller or Youkilis.

I don't understand why they traded for Hyzdu when they have Ambres already. Isn't Ambres better than him?

I'm guessing that was done to make Ambres expendable for the Graffanino trade. Ambres is younger so a more desirable trade target for KC.

Embree being DFA'd really does hurt a little bit even though he can't get hitters out anymore. He was a warrior and never complained about anything. A prime example of this is when he saved both games of a double header in '02. I'll also never forget him getting Sierra to ground out to cap off the greatest comeback in sports history.

Good win for the Red Sox tonight. They got some timely hitting and Arroyo was sharp. It was encouraging to watch Schilling get the save. He hit 94 on the radar gun on his strikeout. Cora was impressive in the field, despite the bobble he had.

Re: Official Boston Red Sox 2005 Thread

Schilling already looks like he's come a long way since his first outing. Hopefully he keeps it up. That was definitly a timely pick-off by Timlin, since I was kind of irritated they brought Timlin in to start the inning instead of Myers.

Embree getting the boot is a little bittersweet. He was quality in the postseason and serviceable in the regular season (up until this year). He definitly leaves a void in the pen that needs to be filled. Romero would certainly be an upgrade, but I'd be surprised if Minnesota wanted to take a guy like Mueller, who has two bad knees, and send him out everyday on that turf. We'll see what happens.

Good win tonight by the sox. Hopefully tomorrow Wells can give us another good outing tomorrow. I think the sox needs a good right handed bat to come off the bench to face lefties like we had with payton. Just look at how the sox struggle with the last two games vs yanks(johnson and leiter) and yesterday vs kazmir.

i read on the espn board that sean mcadam said on fsn that the burnett trade fell apart with the O's. He feels the sox or the O's will not get him. He also stated that Arroyo can be traded only in the right circumstance.
