Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Did you see Willy Mo throw out Rivera? It was a questionable call but I'll take it anyday. It was accurate and never touched the ground which is pretty impressive. 2-1 Sox in the 8th.

wasn't a blister problem. He left because he got a cut on his ring finger, how, I don't know. But it wasn't a blister, so no worries. =)

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

I was surprised to see the Sox had won a 2-1 ballgame when I woke up this morning. Maybe they can actually have a winning record this road trip.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

I really would be hardpressed to believe Coco has provided anything worthwhile on defense.

His hitting has sucked but I guess you can attribute that to his broken finger. But his defense shouldn't be this mediocre.

He just went diving after another ball in center that he had no business diving for. Letting a run score and giving up a triple in the process.

Yep that was a terrible play. It should have been runners on first and second if he played it right, but he has to dive and let it get by him and 1 run scores and the hitter gets a triple . He's doing a bad job of taking over for Damon who everyone loved. Peoples patience are running thin.

Game over, 6-0 Mariners when we had our ace going and they had Woods .

David Ortiz said Friday that his hospital stay last week with an irregular heartbeat was because he was "stressing out and dehydrated."
Ortiz blamed some of the stress on being swept by the Yankees. "They decided to bring me to the hospital overnight," Ortiz said. "I was just dehydrated and I’m feeling better." We can only imagine what would happen if Alex Rodriguez went through the same thing, but for Ortiz it just adds to the legend of Big Papi.

Granted, they were poor plays but how many great plays has Coco made this year? You guys need to calm down with the kneejerk reactions.

The only great play I can remember from Coco this year is the dive towards left field (a snapshot of it is actually my wallpaper). Granted my memory is crappy, but he hasn't been anything special IMO.
