Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

I agree, more often than not, bunting just gets the Sox in trouble. I'd rather see a hit and run.

Good to get back to back 1-0 wins, and three shutouts on the homestand thus far (after having none all season). Today's was less impressive though because not only was it a shutout against the Royals, but Doug Eddings seemed to have some kind of phobia with calling balls. He was terrible.

This offense needs to get going though. Its pretty bad when you only score 7 runs in a series, at home, against the Royals.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Apparently the Red Sox liked Beckett's outing

"Terry Francona announced that Josh Beckett agreed to a three-year deal with the Red Sox. More details to follow."

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

It was only a matter of time until they got him locked up to an extension.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Smart move to lock Beckett up for a few more years. He's likely to get better and would have made a ton of money as a free agent after the 07 season.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Here's the numbers:

$2 million signing bonus
$6 million salary for 2007
$9.5 million salary for 2008
$10.5 million salary for 2009
$12 million at club option for 2010. The option becomes automatic if Beckett makes 28 starts in 2009 or he has a total of 56 starts in 2008 and 2009.
There is also a $2 million buyout clause on the option to make the guaranteed total $30 million.



Very fair deal IMO. He probably would've gotten close to 6 in arbitration next year anyways.

Thats a good deal for both sides because in 2008 he is probably our ace so he starts to make more money.

How many people are going to be free agents after this season is over? I know Nixon off the top of my head but thats it.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

We play Texas today in a make-up game of the mothers day game that got rained out. Todays line up is pretty wacky.

CF Coco Crisp
2B Mark Loretta
1B Kevin Youkilis
LF Manny Ramirez
C Varitek
DH Pena
RF Kapler
SS Gonazlez
3B Cora

And of course Schilling is pitching after coming off of his best game of they year last Saturday. Hopefully we can end our homestand with a win and then hit the road for 2 series against Seattle and Oakland.
