Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Damn the Orioles.

Anyways I havent fully come to terms with the fact that if next week we go into the series with a 2 game lead... we could possibly leave the weekend with a 7!!! game lead. And in the other direction we could come out down 3 games.

Obviously the odds of a 5 game sweep are small especially with 2 teams this good but its weird to think about it. This is definitly the biggest series of the year for both teams and I'm pumped for it. Anyone going to any of the games?

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

As soon as I saw they were leaving Chen in to face Manny, I knew this one was over...

2 inning win for Papelbon, and we don't lose with Jason Johnson starting!!

I went out today since I wouldn't be able to watch it because of the Fox blackout. When I checked rotoworld and saw Jason Johnson's line, I thought for sure we lost. But was pleasently surprised we didn't.

How did Papelbon look? Roto said he looked shaky.

He looked ok. Struggled a bit with control against B-Rob to start off his outing and finally challenged him with a fastball with the count full that Coco caught on the line. After that, Fahey blooped one down the left field line and got thrown out trying for third. I remember some strikeouts and nothing dangerous in the second inning. He wasn't all that sharp, but no one should be the way the starters have been treating the bullpen.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

He looked shaky in his first inning but when he came out for his second I think he looked like the Papelbon we know and love and struck out 2.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Indeed overally good game, rebounding after those embarrising games vs Tampa and KC...

Orioles keep on getting dominated by us, nice too know most of our games are at home for rest of year, since we suck on the road.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Nice to know someone besides Ortiz and Manny can actually hit so that kinda helps us win.
