I didn't mean hopefully the Sox didn't have to face Rivera, although it would be nice...

I was more alluding to the fact that hopefully we'll have better players to be having at-bats against Mo than...Willie Harris.

Ah. Yes, I think so, too. But he has some unique qualities that might be worth holding onto him. Namely, his speed (on the basepaths and in center), and the fact that his strike zone is half the size of Ortiz's. And his shorter stroke might actually work to his advantage against power guys like Rivera. That was the cut fastball he drove to right field last night. He needs some work, but hopefully some time with the coaches during the season will bring out his potential.

At 27 years of age, Willie Harris has about as much potential as you or me. He is what he is. And I hope with his last start vs. Mussina, Tito realizes that he should only be used as a defensive replacement and a pinch runner.


What are the odds of this game being played for the folks in Boston? I'm contemplating wheter to go out and I've heard off an on that it might be rained out.

Yankee fans think Wang and Cano are the future of baseball... Search for the thread about the Marlins potentially trading Dontrelle and you'll see what I mean.

Weird weather. It sounds like we're gonna get rained out at some point, the question is can they get 5 innings in before then. Hope we score early.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Why are they still playing this game? It looks like the weather may have already claimed Matt Clement as he looked like he was limping off the mound after the 5th. They have their five in, they should just call it.

Oh and, Matt Clement still sucks.
