Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Regarding Beckett. Like others have said, he has to adapt to the AL. You can't win with just a fastball in the AL and he seems to stubborn to realize that. He hasn't thrown his curveball for strikes at all this year and doesn't seem to have any other decent pitches.

No, it was a fair ball. Tek tagged out the batter, threw to 2nd and they tagged Bernie after he stepped off. Should've been a double play.

IDK to me it was foul, I would have to look at it again. If it was fair then yes it should've been DP because Cairo(I think it was) never touched it although to the naked eye and seeing it only one, it could've.

I actually thought his curve was pretty good, and was able to get some K's with it. Just haven't seen that much of it.

ARod up.

10-2 Yankees.

I smell homerun followed by a curtain call.

He's had good games and bad games but he doesn't throw it enough. He tries to get by on his fastball alone and AL hitters are too good for that.

It would be ARod-esque.

I think the ump was initially calling it foul but then changed his mind and called batter interference as a cop out for stopping the play.

EDIT - they just showed it again. looks like he called batter interference right off the bat. So they got the initial call right, just took some time to figure it out.
