Good news. I figured with him not attending class that they must be close. Not sure if any of you watched him in the College World Series but he throws some serious gas.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

I stayed up until the end of the 8th inning and then was knocked out. I felt confident Papelbon would knock them out though.

Watching Foulke pitch well is a really great sign for next year. I would vote to possibly keep Papelbon in the pen another year. With a Foulke/Papelbon combo.

Great news for sure since he really dropped in our laps. Easiest 98 I've ever seen.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Nice to see they finally won (even though i didn't literally see it). If Manny goes on the DL then second place will be hard to come by in the AL East. I'm glad I won't be awake to watch another Josh (Trash) Beckett outing.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

I'm not sure if Beckett is actually pitching well or if he's benefiting from a team of free-swingers because I am peaking in and out. But whatever it is I'll take it.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

I've seen it all now.

Coco Crisp has been IBB with runners on 2nd and 3rd and 2 outs.

I don't care who is hitting behind him, he can't be much worse at this point. (Coco is 0-3 thus far). Gladly take it though.

Sh*t

Beckett's first good start in ages, and he has to depart in the 7th with a blister problem.
