Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Boston fans are more reasonable. He's going to have maybe 5 doubles turned into singles over the course of a season because he didn't run on contact. A small price to pay especially considering his base-running and defense have been much better this year than in year's past.

And tonight's a good example too, Manny is 2 for 2 with a homerun and three runs batted in in 3 plate appearances.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Apparently at some point Delcarmen broke during the Seatle series, he can't get anyone out here in the 7th.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

After Delcarmen gave up three straight hits and a run to open the 7th, he gets Bradley to break his bat and strikes out Thomas (on a sick curveball) and Swisher. The Sox still have a lead, 6-5.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Red Sox have'em loaded in the Top of the 8th, Duchscherer got himself throw out after he got removed. Why doesn't Francona bring in Pena to face the lefty instead of Nixon?

Sox break the game open, 10-5. Varitek with the bases clearing double. The Red Sox finally get to Justin Duchscherer (granted all three runs he gave up were inherited by Brad Halsey).

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Back to back singles by Lowell and Crisp to add another run. Red Sox Nation, it is now safe to go to bed. That was big for the Red Sox to come back after the A's had chipped away to make it a one run game and basically slam the door in their face. Barring a meltdown by the likes of Papelbon, this game is over.
