Even though Tek's bat has been weak, Mirabelli has looked like a girl scout at the plate this year. I'm not really sure what a girl scout would look like facing MLB pitching, but it can't be pretty.

I was saying the same thing until he went up 2-0. Then i said, this rookie is going to throw him a fastball right down the middle. Most veteran relievers struggle to get him out when they fall behind, Carmona never had a chance.

Mirabelli's OPS in July has been over .800 so hopefully he keeps that up now that he's playing more. We know he doesn't have speed to burn, thats for sure. He was out by a mile at the plate last night on a weak throw from center and presumably he was off on contact.

Not to mention my grandmother could leg out a triple on a ball hit into the triangle like the one he hit. Mirabelli might be the slowest player in baseball.

He's at least got Frank Thomas beat, not sure about Molina. How many doubles did Thomas hit at Fenway this year that went for singles? He literally can't run.

Yeah, I hope he gets it going. He's just been very soft at the plate and I haven't been a big fan of the reactionary trade to get him back because Bard was having trouble with the knuckleball.

I like Belli though, and hope he's able to get something going this year.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Apparently Trot is out for an estimated 3 weeks. While it's ultimately bad that Nixon will be gone, I'm glad to see Wily Mo get a chance to see some pt. The guy can mash.

Anyone heard anything about Varitek? Last I heard he was going to have an MRI.

Very excited to see Willy Mo in action the next few weeks.
