Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

I hate these announcers. Buck couldn't even get the year Clemens won the MVP award right on the first try. And I don't need to mention the Scrabble stuff.

Schill's got a nasty split today, 5 k's in a row.

And yes, Fox HD seems crappier than most HD channels. It's not as crisp as NESN.

Absolutely, but I doubt she would say hi to him because I brought her to a game last year before the injury, and she had trouble speaking, so here I am the only guy yelling....."Hey gabe, over here." I kind of felt pretty gay, but I will do anything for my wife.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

I hate it when Francona sends Schilling out to start an inning when he is already over 100 pitches. It didn't pay off here, but Lopez was able to get a big double play to preserve the tie. Now the Sox need to score off the Philli 'pen.

Very quick hook for Delcarmen and Hansen. With Papelbon waiting and Lopez ready for the lefties, I'm not really critical of the move, but it's clear how protective they are of these two.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

I'll tell you what...even if we need a starter, I'd have real second thoughts about moving Papelbon out of that closer role even if it's next year. Looking at how pissed off he got cranking it up to 97mph makes me feel pretty good at the end of the game, and if Hanson continues to develop we could have that Percival-KRod combo that won the Angels a World Series. Then we still have guys like Delcarmen, Edgar Martinez, and about 3 guys from the draft that could contribute in the next 2-3 years and just take their time as Seanez, Tavarez, Foulke and others are weened out... You can't bank on any of that, including Hanson growing into all that talent, but with a closer like Pap to build around, it's just fun to look down the round.

PAPI!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

That was a nice finish. Papelbon looked a little shaky for the first time in awhile but he got through it and then even came out for the tenth (to my surprise) and retired the side in order. The Papi blast was predictable. I was saying to myself "Get on base Cora so Gordon can't pitch around Ortiz" since Gordon has owned Manny throughout his career.
