Schill just wanted to get the win.

I can understand that...

For an "off-year"(as some people have called it) Manny's having a damn good season.

Re: Official Boston Red Sox 2005 Thread

Actually, thats Schilling's first blown save of the year. His first relief appearance where he sufferred the loss to New York was not in a save situation.

Schilling's stuff is starting to come around. The split her left in on Rowand was a bad split, but the pitch Crede drove to right was just poor pitch selection. I believe that one was clocked at 94 on the gun so it wasn't a velocity problem. His split looked much better in his second inning of work and the results were there. So far thats been his porblem, finding his splitter. They're either sharp and diving or they tend to "pop" out of his hand and hang over the plate.

That ball Manny hit was crushed!

Good perspective for those pleading Theo for a move to calm you down before the deadline!

I hope Boston can sweep Chicago. And if the Twins can take 4 out of 5 from the Tigers that would put the Twins in good shape to make a come back. Lets Go Boston...Lets Go!!!

Bill Simmons also has a column worth reading about the very same thing on the ESPN main page.

A very good article. I honestly think that if we could get Burnett/Romero/Lowell without giving up any of our big prospects, we'll be set for a long post-season run.

And giving up guys like Mueller and Millar is all the sweeter since they won't be on the roster next year anyway. Also, it mitigates the risk of signing Burnett since the compensation pick he'd provide is still worth the rental since our future nucleus is intact. If AJ can come and win here, I'm sure Boston would make him a very competitive offer anyway.

Recent rumors have a deal for AJ potentially leading to a swap for Wagner once we get him...if, of course a deal was ever struck. Makes you wonder why you wouldn't target Wagner in the first place with Lowell's contract on the line?? Not sure how I feel about that. (probably won't have to know anyway, but still)
