Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Hopefully Bard is watching a lot of tape to see what he's doing wrong. It seems like if he does a better job of positioning himself to at least block the ball he'll eliminate some of those passed balls. 1-2 a game is acceptable, but this 4+ isn't.

Tavarez at least looked good. And now we're getting a look at Delcarmen.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

It seems like Wakefield has alot of trouble getting the Knuckleball in the right location. Reason for guys teeing off him they just let Knuckleball go by and tee off on his Curve and when he's behind in the count the crank his highschool speed fastball. Bard catching him hasn't been pretty, yes a knuckleball is a tough pitch to defend against, but all these past balls got to stop.

Delcarmen got touched for a few, but the Indians didn't really tee-off on him. He still needs to work on spotting his fastball a bit better as it was often up.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Beckett versus Byrd tonight. The matchup should favor the Red Sox, but they didn't hit Byrd very well last year. Beckett has to watch out for Jason Michaels who has hit him very well in the past (1.100+ OPS). Aaron Boone, in his only AB against Beckett, has a homerun as well. Manny is 0 for 6 in his career against Byrd so he's going to have to find a way to get it done.

I've got Byrd on my fantasy team

Hansen was called up to Pawtucket too.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

In Byrd's last start he gave up 7 runs in 3 innings to the Royals. If the freakin' Royals can put up 7 in three innings on this guy, the Sox better put up about 12.

I have to work again tonight unfortunately, but am taping the game on the deuce and have been wearing my Beckett shirt all day. Let's take two of three from these guys.
