Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

So I see Varitek is hitting .228. Anyone think he's on the decline?

Certainly not Tito since he continues to bat him 5th or 6th.

I think Tek can work out the crapness that he's been thus far, but it's going to be tough watching him the final year and a half or so of his contract.

I think he's probably declining some, but not as drastic as his .228 average suggests. He was battling a muscle pull after the WBC for the first month or so that has contributed to his slow start. I think he'll pick it up over the summer months, then decline a little at the end of the year, which most catchers do.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Anyone else trying to remember the last groundball out Foulke recorded?

Add another one to the total 16/16 Papelbon was asked to 4 outs and delivers, he came in and started off where Timlin left off, avoiding runs in the 8th with runners on corners, very impressed by Papelbon, even after Toby Hall fouled off like 10 balls.
