Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

It's great to win these 2-1 games. We know the offense will come around, and when it does, it looks like we have at least the starting pitching to keep up with it.

If Foulke can give us anything, and Seanez settles down in the slightest..... Damn!

Too bad Weapon of Mass Potential (WMP) is out of options... Pawtucket wouldn't bee too bad for him IMO.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

That was a dandy of a game today. Hopefully after tomorrow Wake doesn't have the distinction of being the only starter without a win.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Is it me or do the Red Sox seem really fun to watch this season? And I'm no longer nervous about going into the 9th in a save situation. I just think of a closer as someone who can throw heat not someone like Foulke who throws 87-88 mph fastballs.

Missed my first game of the year tonight thanks to the rain delay/party, but I read up on it and sounded great. How'd Papelbon look?

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Awesome. He jammed Tejada and got him to pop up which is pretty good. Then the next guy popped up then he struck out Kevin Millar and looked nasty with 97 mph fastballs and he threw a good slider that bounced in front of the plate but came back and threw a nasty one right after.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Yeah, Paps looked good out there, but so did Schilling and I really think that is huge. If Schilling can keep throwing this weel, the offense will come around and this could be a really good season.
