Looks like my prediction was on the long side. And I initially thought my 2 week prediction was being a bit harsh on Foulke...

I love the move by Tito. Win the ballgame today. No dicking around here with Foulke. He looked like a$$hole on Monday, and I honestly do not think it would have been any different today.

The talk show/newspaper/smarmy sports news hosts mutant vermin creeps must be frothing at the mouth at this very moment.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

I stand corrected regarding Foulke/Papelbon. Should be interesting to see how they handle this going forward.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Nothing against Gary Disarcina but we really need Eck in the postgame after a pitching performance like that.

I didn't agree with bringing in Papelbon in the 9th. I think they need to let Foulke have his shot but I can't argue with results. Foulke's stuff is fine right now, its his command that isn't. No matter what happens, Paps is gonna have a big season for them out of the pen.

Beckett looked strong. He's gonna be a fun one to watch this season. This was a great game. It's too bad there's no game on tomorrow. And props to Nixon on the two-run blast, that was big, obviously.

What a pitching performance by Beckett and Paps.

Lowell looks lost at the plate just like last season.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

It's sad to see Foulke not get the opertunity. Timlin nearly blew it... Jonathan Papelbon did superb, they couldn't touch his fastball and getting first save, once we get rid of Matt Clement, Pap be perfect to put in as a Starter. I'm hoping Mr. Foulke can get his head on right, or we'll need to find a new closer.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Depending on if Foulke returns to his old self, Clement might possibly be a valuable commodity come the trade deadline. He does have a big contract though.

Yes, I know that's a long way away...
