I almost thought they'd DL Miller retroactive to his last start, to give him some more time and get Papelbon another start. I'm glad to know that Miller is healthy though.
According to redsox.com, last time I checked, it was said he had bicep tendinitis and is pitching tomorrow, with Clement going thursday.

They really need to sweep the royals, they're a team they should beat rather easily, but this team seems to struggle against the teams they should beat, and then goes and sweeps the Twins, despite their struggles.

As far as Cruz Jr. I expect him to be on this roster and playing until Nixon comes back, because the reason they got him was to give them a lefty OF while Nixon was gone, so they could match-up with pitchers better.

I'd rather see Stern get a chance to bat insted of Cruz. I don't know what happened to him over the years, but his swing just looks awful now-a-days.

Good comeback win tonight for the Sox. Manny's 29th was a laser to centerfield. Damon keeps on getting it done, and Bellhorn's job appears to be Graffanino's for the remainder of the season. Schilling really had to work for the save tonight and threw, I think, 20 fastballs before throwing a single splitter which was different. Perhaps it was because Mirabelli was catching him insted of Varitek? Or maybe it was because Schilling has seen what we have all seen and that is his splitter needs work. Wakefield did just enough to win and move to 3-0 on his birthday.

Miller goes tomorrow, I'm not sure what to expect out of him. I'm thinking another offensive type of game tomorrow. Hopefully the Sox can get the sweept. With a Yankees loss to Cleveland tonight, the Sox now have a 3 game lead in the loss column.

Tonight is a huge start for Wade Miller. I have a feeling he wont make it past the 5th and will end up on the DL. Hopefully not though, we need him to cmoe together during this stretch run.

I have the same feeling. He's been pretty solid so I'd like to keep him in the rotation but I'm not sure if his shoulder will hold up. If he goes down, I think Schilling goes back to the rotation, in which case they'll need Delcarmen and/or Papelbon to step up big in a setup role while Timlin assumes closer duties.

Wow. Scary moment with Manny and Renteria colliding. Both were down for a few minutes but seem to be ok. Renteria got Manny pretty good with a right hook.

Gotta love Millar's "That was only 200 million dollars lying face down on the ground."

Re: Official Boston Red Sox 2005 Thread

I guess thats what I expected out of Miller last night. He's been mediocre for awhile now but I'm hoping he can catch fire at some point before October.

The Sox are goin' for the sweep this afternoon. I was planning on watching most of it but I got called into work early. It will be Clement's first start since taking that line drive off his head. I anticipate a solid outing, Clement seems to pitch better during the day here at Fenway.

By then, there was very little chance of a deal happening for Ramirez, and, fortunately by then, Epstein had repaired much of the damage, with the help of Kevin Millar and David Ortiz. The only way there would be a deal is if Boston could reach its endgame of Mike Cameron, which involved a fourth team, the Reds, and Adam Dunn; in that, Manny would have gone to the Mets; Hanley Ramirez and Mets players would have gone to Tampa Bay; Lastings Milledge and Anibel Sanchez would have gone to Cincinnati; and Boston would have received Cameron, Dunn, Aubrey Huff and Trever Miller. Tampa Bay had killed it by Saturday morning by reminding people why they are the worst franchise in modern baseball history and upping requests, and Reds GM Dan O'Brien had serious restraints because of the impending ownership change; he could not even respond to Yankee inquiries about and Junior Griffey.
-Peter Gammons
Interesting. I'm surprised they were willing to trade Hanley Ramirez in a deal that didn't include a sure star. Perhaps this is because they are now higher on Pedroia than Ramirez? And, according to Gammons, it was Luchinno who nixed the Bigbie deal. I'm actually glad we didn't get Bigbie but that was pretty low on the part of the Red Sox to back out of that deal when Colorado had already gone out and aquired Bigbie.

Manny will sit today and Olerud has been placed on the 15 day DL. Petagine will make his Red Sox debut and bat cleanup. This guy has been tearing it up at Triple A and now he gets his shot, I hope he comes through.
