Wakefields last three starts earned runs allowed 3,3,3

Chacon ,1,1,1. Chacon was terrible his first two starts and has pitched much better.

Point being, Wakefield isn't exactly struggling, he just hasn't gotten the run support to get W's.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

How does Ekersley still have a job on TV?


Anyway, I love how quickly people jump from bandwagon to bandwagon...

I was watching Cold Pizza on my lunch break and apparently several scouts said that Curt Schilling is turning into the "right-handed Randy Johnson" because he's losing MPH on his fastball, etc.

Two-three weeks ago everyone is raving that he's back to his old Cy Young level. Unreal, stupid media.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Schilling had a poor start, like Johnson. I think it'd be foolish to say that they aren't going to be effective from here on in. Although Schilling pitched poorly, RJ might have an injury.

And from the little bit I saw of Eck on the pre-game and post-game stuff he was actually really good. Better than some of the tools on ESPN. But that probably isn't saying much.

You serious? Eck is the freakin man. He is by far the best analyst NESN has for their pre/post game shows.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Eckersley should be in the booth for ESPN or on Baseball Tonight, he's very good at what he does. He is edgy without trying to be where as it seems ESPN hires guys specifically to make outrageous statements that usually just sound stupid.

I used to respect him, but the whole incident where he swore on NESN (I was watching it live but can't remember the exact statement - something along the lines of 'The Yankee offense is ****ing pathetic') just left an awful taste in my mouth. He seems so unprofessional.

And would it kill him to wear a suit every now and then?

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Eck would be nice to see on ESPN. I still can't believe ESPN hired Jon Kruk over Jerry Remy.

Mind blowing.
