Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

And Paps comes up yet again.

Bye bye Foulke as our closer.

Nice, he got out of it. Probably the effects of saving a one-run game the night before where Paps clearly was throwing with max effort. Good thing they have a day off tomorrow.

How about this start to the season?! 6-1 with some dominating pitching performances through-out.

I think Papelbon probably feels more comfortable with Varitek behind the plate to. Tek just knows what to do in situations.

I wouldn't say that at all. He's looking better and better, and their really isn't a huge reason for him not to return to his closer role if he is back to being effective. Their is a great chance one our of starters could go down and Pap would need to fill that role.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Oops, typo. I was thinking 5-1. If Beckett duplicates his Texas start they'll be 6-1 though. I'm definitly cutting class to watch that one!

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Anyone else really happy seeing Millar in the opposing team's dugout this weekend?!

Why does everyone hate Millar?

If it meant not having Lowell I'd take Millar any day of the week.

As long as he wasn't the one doing the anonymous sniping of his teammates last year like Gammons implied.
