Re: Official Boston Red Sox 2005 Thread

Hanley is the better athlete, but Pedroia is the more major-league ready player out of the two, so I'm not surprised they were willing to keep pedroia over Hanley. Plus, they don't really have anywhere to put Hanley currently, while Pedroia could easily be the starting 2B next season.

C'mon Terry, you have earned my respect with your off the field management, but continue to be questionable on the field. A guy who hasnt been in the ML in 7 years batting 4th? WHAT?! What about Millar? Or Tek hitting 3rd and Papi 4th.

Well, not that Roberto has contibuted except a walk, but 9 runs. 8 in the inning including a Renteria 3-run double and Tek granny with 2 outs. All the runs scored were unearned haha. If Renteria hits like he shoulda been all year the last two months of the year, we will be so unstoppable on offense, even moreso than now.

If I ever have to see the noodle arm of Damon try to throw out Matt Stair-master again, i'll die. That was hilarious.

What an ugly game. Combined 20 runs, 19 hits, 15 walks and 3 errors.

The Red Sox scored 8 runs in the 4th on 2 hits! Oh well, we've won 8 straight, are 5 games ahead of the Yanks and tied with the Angels for 2nd best record in the AL.

I've noticed that Terry doesn't like to move around his players in the order. If somebody is filling in (in the case Petagine), he leaves the order the same and puts Roberto where Manny would be batting. He did the same thing with Olerud.

Re: Official Boston Red Sox 2005 Thread

I was at work yesterday and we were all around the tv when Tek came up and of course we are started complaining about how he is an awful bases-loaded hitter. IT was definitly cool to see him hit his first career grand slam, and I've been waiting for that one for the last three years, I think (though I'm sure Tek had had been waiting longer). That was an ugly game, and the spin they're putting on it is kind of lame as well (Matt had so much courage to step out there!) but will suffice for now. If Clement comes out next time and allows 6 runs in 5 innings he probably won't get another win.

Petagine looks like Brian Daubach part 2.

Correct, and I don't really have a problem with this. If it was Adam Stern you might feel differently but Petagine and Olerud are no worse than the guys below them, except maybe Tek.
