Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Sounds like the Red Sox had a player called team meeting today. Hopefully they calm things down and get back on track.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

I don't expect the Sox to get anything out of Foulke this year. And he looked good when I saw him, but I just don't see him having the required motivation and health to pull it off. Thanks for 04 Keith, you'll always be a hero to me for that season.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

So how is that trade looking now?

Arroyo: 9-8 3.54 ERA 1.23 WHIP 7.93 K/9 3.55 K/BB

Pena: .304/.360/.500 158 AB 7 HR 27 RBI

Arroyo is still having a pretty decent season (though his numbers had he pitched in the AL would have looked worse), but the trade doesn't look so lopsided anymore.

The trade looked good from the begging to me. The Red Sox traded away there 7th starting pitcher for a good yound power hitter that can hit in the upper .200's and hit 30+ homeruns in a good season.

Who knew we were gonna need that 7th starter though...

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

I agree with you, but the popular thing for awhile was to condemn Theo for that deal, though I didn't hear as much about it here as I did on WEEI.

Yah I remember most being in favor here. You're right about WEEI though. They hated the deal. Everybody was preaching the "you can never have too much pitching" theory without stopping to think that we couldnt carry 15 pitchers on our active roster.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

And when Arroyo got off to a nice start against the NL and Wells/DiNardo didn't the callers just got even dumber. And now in August he's basically a league average starter again. I love how everything in baseball seems to work itself out.

I'm happy with Pena, but I'm not ready to say Bronson would have fallen off a cliff if he had remained in Boston.

He would have been an interesting option out of the bullpen, and a much better spot starter than the garbage of Jason Johnson and the like.

But looking towards the future it seems like the better deal, easily.
