Trot with the leadoff walk. Watchout.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Good thing Steve Phillips is informing us about the strategy of drafting college players over HS player because they are less risky.

Moneyball only came out with that, what? 3 years ago?

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

I wonder if the Yankees ask Sutcliffe to wear a rubber when he calls their games on ESPN?

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Wow, I'm glad I didn't stay in tonight to watch the game.

I just got in and saw the box score, what an inexcusable performance by Josh Beckett, who now has a 5.73 ERA on the season. The guy's stuff has gotten him this far, even got him a World Series MVP, but he needs to learn how to pitch. His command is spotty at best, and alls he really has is his fastball that he can turnover and his curveball, which isn't always reliable. His change is pure garbage and it may be too late to do it at this point this season, but he should work on finding a new grip for his change or learning a split or something because his arsenal stinks. The lineup the Yankees put out there tonight is just plain bad, to give up that many runs is Kansas City-like.

Torre is one of the best managers in baseball, but he still is pretty bad with managing a bullpen. Why throw a guy like Proctor, who has arguably been overworked at this point in the season, in a meaningless game? Seems pretty stupid to me.

I don't even want to address that play in the first, though Francona should.
