Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

I have no idea why Riske threw an 0-2 pitch right down the middle to Hillenbrand. I thought Foulke should have come in to start the 8th inning.

Good thing the right team won last night because Larry Young made a terrible call. I have no idea how he could call Molina's hit a foul ball. When the ball landed, chalk went up.

ManRam owns the Jays. The Red Sox's OF have yet to make an error this season but I thought Nixon should have been credited with an error last night.

What's the deal with that Tina girl on NESN saying Halladay isn't well known in the US? LOL

I thought Doc only had a decent outing last night. That was his "B" game. He had way too many flyball outs and had trouble keeping the ball down. Giving up only 3 runs in 7 innings to a team as stacked as the Red Sox is nothing to be ashamed about. I just think I've been spoiled.

Clement is awful. I believe he's going to make almost 10 mil next season.

Papelbon is one of the areas I don't have a problem with. The ultimate goal here is for him to be a starter and to do that he needs innings. He pitched 129 innings in 2004, 148 innings in 2005 so development wise, he should be in the 170 range this year. However, as a closer he's only on pace to throw 81 innings, about half of where he should be.

With his age and his arm, I don't think him wearing down is really a concern.

Be happy...

if he had made the RIGHT call, it would've been a single and a completely different game, just like Molina himself said after the game, lol.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

David Pauley??

Quote:
The Sox have decided on David Pauley to pitch on Wednesday in place of David Wells. Pauley has never pitched above Double-A but was in major league camp this spring and started against the Phillies in spring training. He went four innings but allowed a three-run homer to Chase Utley in the first inning.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

I read on a message board somewhere that Pauley was an option, and I honestly thought it was someone who was mixing his name up with someone else.

But whatever.

Scouting Report: Pauley mixes a low 90s fastball with good movement, an excellent changeup, and a top-notch curveball. Has 4th or 5th starter potential. Has been very consistent in recent seasons, with some flashes of brilliance. Struggled in MLB Spring Training in 2006. Needs to improve his control somewhat.

Via Soxprospects.com

Probably just the optimist in me, but I'm excited to see this guy. If Aaron Small can put on the second half he did last year, then anything is possible.
